Carrolls has been around for decades and is worth a visit. Originally a diner, the restaurant is now more upscale. The food ranges from pub fare to regular entrees. The bar is lively and the atmosphere is open and uncluttered. The location in Medford Square is a bit inconvenient as far as parking is concerned, but once the area construction... More

I've tried to like this place. I live local and try to support local. I've visited this "restaurant" four times over the past two years...always when it is snowing out and there is nowhere else to go. The food is truly horrible!

Been here several times for their dinner specials and drinks at the bar with appetizers. The white Sangria is fantastic, large glass, $10 and half-priced appetizers at the bar on Thursday nights and each night food specials. We like the Calamari sampler appetizer done 3 ways.Wednesday night they have $7 burgers that are good. Staff is friendly.

We had fish n chips, burgers, Mac n cheese, and lobster rolls. The lobster rolls were really good with plenty of fresh lobster. Plus brownie and ice... More

Here for business and was looking for seafood. I really enjoyed my meal-scrod. Well prepared and generous portions. Waitress was very attentive and helpful in explaining the menu. Bar area was pleasant to eat at and not too loud. Recommend it!
