Very friendly wait staff, good casual weeknight dining. Food is your basic chop house -- good and well-prepared. Nice neighborhood place.

Dined at Carrolls for a business dinner with several other colleagues. Nice location and interior. Bartenders seems to be interested in anything else other than trying to get your drink order. First glass of wine poured was sour, so I had to ask them to open another bottle. Dinner was average at best. Menu seems to be a confused mix... More

Over the course of several months I corresponded long distance from CO with Maury at Carroll's Restaurant to plan the rehearsal dinner for our son and his fiancee's wedding. Maury was always very responsive getting back to me and helpful with my many questions. On the night of the big event, the restaurant had a special area set aside for... More

I'm not too crazy about the food. The chopped salad with grilled chicken is my go to. The drinks are where it's at here. They have a full bar and TVs so it's good for grabbing drinks and watching whatever big game is on. The dining room is nice and can accommodate large parties. And of course you can't beat... More

Great buttery lobster rolls! We also tried the lobster mac and cheese. They have great rolls while waiting for dinner. Don't eat more than one or you won't be able to eat your meal. Most meals comes with sides.

Went for dinner while staying in the area. Quick walk from Hyatt Place Medford. All the food was delicious, kids loved the nachos and the lobster roll was outstanding! They had lots of seafood specials the night we were there and most of us tried them. Will definitely return when in the area again!

We celebrated a granddaughter's birthday here after she mentioned she wanted steak. She had the Filet Mignon, I had the marinated steak tips with onion rings and scallop potatoes, and her Nana had the chicken picata...all were very tasty and perfectly prepared. We initially had a cocktail and ended with a desert

We were recommended Carrolls by our hotel here in Medford. It was a short walk and the concierge said it was great food. And she was not lying! My fiancée ordered their fried calamari as an appetizer and I don't think I got more than two pieces! He couldn't stop eating it! Their Caesar salad was one of the best... More

Had dinner there with a colleague and found the food to be average at best and the service was very uneven through dinner. The restaurant is in downtown Medford, quite conveniently located. It has a large bar area and a large dining room area, separated somewhat by a wall. The interior is very standard. The menu offers all the standards... More
