A perfectly good restaurant that has gone downhill. Cold enchiladas, fajitas on a plate - no sizzling platter - barely warm with no seasonings. The tortillas usually come in a basket warm but here they were cold on the plate. Pinto beans, not seasoned, instead...More

I am so sorry you feel that way. Our fajitas and enchiladas have never come on a sizzling platter or in a basket. This has not changed, nor gone downhill. We serve authentic Mexican on Thursdays, not Tex Mex. People who regularly come on Thursdays...More

There is a fine line between colonial quaint and old and rundown. Here, while efforts are made to be the former, the latter prevails. Outside awnings are old and dirty, not a good sign. Food is reasonably priced, almost too inexpensive. But most of the...More

I'm so sorry you had a bad experience. Our iceberg arrived looking not up to par and instead of serving it, we decided to cut it for the night. It is more difficult than you can imagine to send a staff member to the store...More

For four years we and another couple have met here annually as it is about halfway between us. Staff has always been attentive, gracious and professional. Menu and specials offer a good range of choices including GF, reasonable portions, well prepared.

The food was great. I desired my favorite steak (filet mignon) and was not disappointed. I was surprised by the fast service. I felt my meal was a good price. There is a friendly atmosphere here. I would go back to this restaurant :)

This is a pleasant local restaurant with a broad list of offers, all fairly priced, well-presented and very good quality combined with good and friendly service. You really can't beat it for a casual evening out that's 10 steps above a diner or an Applebee's,...More

Nice atmosphere. Husband ordered a spicy chicken entree which looked good but he cut open the breast and we saw it was rare. The waittress took it back and returned the same piece which was now quite dry. However my salad was quite good-- and...More

Carolina House has been our 'go-to' local restaurant for many years; we're card-carrying members of their frequent flyer club.  Generally, we always have a good experience there. Not so tonight, First,  it was 70 degrees outside, but the air-conditioning was on full throttle!  It was...More
