"I called to let them know that we will be celebrating a birthday, I was told after dinner was served they would bring an ice cream sundae. All we received was the bill, that's it."

"Carson's has the best ribs anywhere. The meat is perfectly done, and the sauce is beyond delicious. The Au Gratin potatoes they came with were excellent as well. If you can only have one dinner in Chicago, this is the place."
