We went on August 29,, with our friends who are card carrier locals,, they frequently go there ... like another reviewer said; it was very cold,,, with air conditioner on.. there were many patrons,,, our wait time was WELL over an hour,,, delicious warm corn bread ,, refilled when asked ... our dinners were good,,, I think something has changed from what I hear,,,,
I would go back again...
hopefully whatever the kink is, will be worked out ,,,, I didn't mind the wait. Because of good company and food, but understand some people may not.

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 freezing in the restaurant.  I asked to speak to a manager.  None was on duty, so I was referred to the bartender, who seemed annoyed by our request, but promised to turn the A/C down; it never happened.

Even though it was 'Mexican night', and we ordered from that menu, it was a full hour before our dinners arrived!  And by the time that happened, there were only two other tables occupied in the main front dining room where we were sitting.  Truly inexplicable. 

I ordered the shrimp fajitas... the shrimp came with the tails still on!  Very odd.

No doubt we'll be back; hopefully tonight was anomaly.  Let's hope there is no repeat of tonight's disappointment.

We went out with two couples. Service is very good. Menu goes from bar food to full menu. We always enjoy the atmosphere. I recommend Thier steaks.

Best meal is pork ribs, but it is hard to go wrong. Servers tend to be there for several years, so they must be doing something right, and make decent tips. Excellent cocktails.

If you have a hankering for a special meal in a special place, try Carolina House. It is a unique experience - feels downright colonial inside and the service and food are really outstanding.
