We have dinner there often. They have little turnover of servers and since we are regulars we know many of the staff. They are courteous, knowledgeable, and attentive. Food is better than average and while we have our favorites, we like most items on the menu. Deserts are especially good, and are homemade! Highly recommended.

Good food at a fair price. Comfortable seating in a variety of different areas, from tables surrounded by windows to cozy booths. Service was great and portions were generous. Great desserts too.

Rustic look. Can always depend on the Carolina House for a good meal. Comfortable atmosphere. You can dress up a bit or wear your jeans and you'll be fine. Good place for meat lovers.

We made the mistake of sitting at the bar to get something to eat and drink. We ordered appetizers intending to order more but the service was so terrible after 90 minutes we decided not to order anything else. Plus the bartender never asked. But the small amount of food we got was actually very delicious. I recommend sitting in... More

The atmosphere was nice, but we were still comfortable in jeans, which is a rare find. The staff was nice. We had calamari as a starter, which was good, I like a light battered calamari and that's what they have. They have a good variety without having too many choices. I had chicken and penne, it was cooked perfectly and... More

We went to The Carolina House this week and we very pleased with our meals. They had a Tuesday Italian Day so my husband ordered Chicken Parmesan with linguini. The chicken was tender and juicy and the linguini al dente. I ordered 1000 Spice Chicken with sauté spinach and sweet potatoes fries. The chicken was very tasty but the fries... More

We try to get to Caroline House at lease once every other month because it's like coming home!! Frankly, the decor isn't the most exciting. Wood paneling and booths are the norm throughout the restaurant. But the wood is comforting, and the booths are large enough (and comfortable) to anyone feel special. The service is fantastic! This evening, we had... More

We love this place. Why? Well, what do you go to a restaurant for? Good food? Check. Great service? Check. Nice ambiance? Check. Reasonable prices? Check. Dinner tonight was fantastic. Apps of fried calamari, crab cakes and corn chowder (corn chowder in the middle of summer? Yes!). Three chicken dishes (two parmesan (it was Italian night) and one Marsala) each... More

I have visited this restaurant several times a year for over 20 years. Overall, I've had great if not excellent experiences. Love the blackened catfish with pickled onions and garlic smashed potatoes! Corn chowder is awesome and so is the fried calamari with sausage and peppers. Service is always friendly, maybe a little slower but that's okay with us because... More
