Happy hour is always a fun time! It’s a great way to relax with friends and family while trying a new place without spending a lot of money. Happy hour menus vary but there’s always drink specials and discounts on appetizers and finger foods. My husband Billy and I were thrilled to be invited to try out the new Happy Hour at Carrabba’s Italian Grill and since we have one right in our city we made plans to check it out.
We went to the Carrabba’s in Ocala, Florida where our server Ashley provided us with great service.
Carrabba’s Happy Hour is offered daily and features half price appetizers (in the bar area) and drink specials throughout the restaurant.
For appetizers we ordered;
- Calamari: Hand-breaded to order and served with marinara sauce.
- Shrimp Scampi: Garlic, white wine and lemon butter sauce served with baked ciabatta.
- Wood Fired Italian Wings: Seasoned with spicy Italian peppers. Served with gorgonzola dipping sauce.
- Mozzarella Marinara: Hand-cut and breaded, served with marinara sauce
Everything was delicious and fresh tasting! I’m not ashamed to say we ate every last bite! The portions were perfect, not to little and not to much. Other appetizers on their menu were Tomato Caprese with Fresh Burrata, Mussels with White Wine Lemon Butter and Zucchini Fritte.
For drinks, Billy has a Coors Light on draft and I had Absolut with pink lemonade, which was perfect! They also has $2 Bud Light on draft, $5 for premium spirits like Jim Beam and Crown Royal plus $5 speciality cocktails such as Pomegranate Martini and Blackberry Bellini.
