"We had dinner here with three kids under the age of 5 and it worked out really well. The kids' meals were reasonable priced and had drinks, sides, and dessert. The adult meals were very good traditional American dining, including Great Lakes fish choices and very good prime rib. The service was very good."

"Overall good experience in particular the appetizers we had were the highlight of the meal. We ordered the Bistro Chips and Fried Calamari and found them both to be quite large portion wise - each alone could easily satisfy 4 people. The Calamari was tender and the dipping sauce was tangy with a hint of spice. The Bistro Chips were a nice contrast to the Calamari and again the portion size was very generous.
For entrees we had the Sautéed Whitefish and Pecan Chicken. The whitefish was a bit disappointing and although the chicken was moist and tender I felt that the mustard sauce was a but watery and needed a stronger mustard presence.
The bread is flavorful and warm.
For dessert we had the Ice Cream cookie which came hot from the oven and was sized well for 2 people to share.
Even though the restaurant was very busy the food arrived quickly especially the main entrees. Service was attentive and polite. Even though we arrived 10 minutes early we were seated promptly without having to wait until reservation time.
Will definitely return to try other menu items."

"We still had to wait for several minutes for a table even with the reservation. Several people were seated ahead of us just walking in without one. It was confusing because they had more than one person seating people. The food was just ok. The tomato-bisque soup was very good but a very small portion. Have had better Quiche. The carrot cake was worth it all though! saved the meal!"

"We went for Ann Arbor Restaurant Week. The macadamia crusted mahi-mahi was superb. They kept the "rattlesnake" piece from before the remodel. It sits to the left of the reception stand as you enter. I must say I had never paid much attention to it. This is a nice place. Easy to get to. Parking is free. The really have some unique menu items (a crispy Brussels sprouts appetizer and vegetable accompaniment)."

"All four of us enjoyed our selections. It was a busy Friday night, so we were glad we had reserved with open table. Service was good, and the birthday discount is awesome."

"My husband and I and another couple have been having dinner at Carson's on New Year's Eve for the past few years, and it is always enjoyable. We were seated in a quiet area, so we could talk. Our food was very good, and so were the desserts! My steak, in particular, was tender and delicious, and I enjoyed the harvest hash that came with it. The service was excellent. Vinnie our waiter was attentive, prompt, and helpful. We'll celebrate the end of 2016 there too, I am sure."
