Swordfish over cooked and not blackened. Asked for no guacamole on chicken sandwich and came with it on. Swordfish was not fresh and tasted fishy. Won't be back for awhile.

Sunday 2:45 PM. On-line showed Brunch til 3PM. Wanted full menu but had to wait. OK, but arcane tablet menus showed only brunch. Not easy for older folks to even look at. Asked for paper menu - more time passes. Service lacking despite few guests....More

Right down the road from our hotel. Service was fantastic, nice menu, decent atmosphere. We enjoyed a very nice dinner. Highly recommend! Eating at our hotel would have been much more convenient, but so glad we ventured out.

I've eaten here a few times and can say the food has always been good. The fish tacos are a little messy. Hard to pick up to eat. I had the cedar planked salmon with maple seasoning and was very pleased with the flavor. The...More

We celebrated my birthday this past weekend at Carson's. The food was great and the service was outstanding. Our server, Bob, was nice and had a great sense of humor. Thanks to the entire staff, the kitchen staff and management for making my celebration memorable.
