Carolina Grill & Tap Room Ratings and Reviews
I have eaten multiple times and have always had good experience with Carolina Grill but this time was not a good experience.
Our waitress took 30 minutes to bring drinks, an additional 20 to bring the one she forgot, and once she brought the appetizer, she forgot to put in the entree order. In total, our dinner lasted over 2.5 hours for a beer and a few bowls of chili.
The food was great but the service was in no way acceptable. In addition, there were many children running around unattended.
Not customer friendly. Too many rules for wait-staff to seat or serve. Menu misleading. Sides listed with entree not really served with every entree. Seems to be a neighborhood basement pub trying to be a restaurant sometimes. Staff needs better training. Food was so-so; not memorable. Crossed off my list of return worthy dining.
Our waitress was wonderful ~ pleasant, helpful, and smiling. The food was good, nothing extraordinary about the seasoning or presentation. I rated the noise level high because there were families with young children who were loud. The starkness of the interior also lends itself to noise carrying. Overall, I would go back again, but would not go out of my way to make this a "regular" hangout.
If you want a meal, this is a good place. If you want a dining experience, this is not the place for you.
I bit noisy with loud children playing and screaming.
They were out of some foods.
Pasta was ok but could have been better flavored.
Not as good as our first time there. Just wasn't a good night fir the servers or the variety. They were even out of the vanilla ice cream for the bread pudding.
The half price wine is always a plus.
We won't be going back. We felt rushed as soon as we sat down at the table. Horrible wine selection.
The salad appeared to be days old, wilted and Brown. We ordered the Ribeye steak. Moderately priced, what appeared was a piece of meat that looked like a dog toy. The manager said it looked like we were served the meat from the steak sandwhich. It was cold. Cold meat, with a pat of butter on top of the steak that wasn't melted. The side dish, cold
Thankfully we left without an issue.
We won't be back
Disappointed that on Easter, only offered a brunch that was just average, meats good, but veggies were not great. Couldn't order off of a menu, and we came for filet medallions specifically. And brunch was very overpriced. No desserts to speak of, either. Doubt we will be back. All of us felt the same way about the special occasion experience. Nothing felt special.
We had our moms birthday party celebration in the bar area. Very comfortable seating and not packed in. We enjoy our server Jennifer and the service we received. The food was excellent and there was a nice variety of choices for all 8 of us to choose from.
My favorite appetizer was the breaded mushrooms!
Very reasonable prices.
I will definitely return to this restaurant. Menu selections were varied. We had the fried pickle appetizer which was the best I've ever had! The salmon salad was delicious with fresh greens and salmon filet cooked to perfection. The restaurant is in a quiet neighborhood. We were greeted immediately upon arriving and Sue provided us with great service.
Unfortunately, we got a call at 10 a.m on the morning of our reservation explaining that the restaurant closes at 2 p.m. (the time of our reservation) and could we please come earlier. Not very convenient timing, as we had made the reservation on Tuesday and were asked to call 2 families from out of town on the morning of the day we are supposed to eat lunch with them and ask them to change their whole day around. It is most unfortunate that the restaurant does not coordinate their schedule with Open Table, and allows Open Table to make reservations for them at a time when they are not open. To his credit, the manager was nice and apologetic, but they had 5 days to contact us to make the change and they call us four hours before our reservation? Not professional or impressive. Needless to say, we chose not to move our whole day around because of their mistake and we dined elsewhere. I had to rate everything 1 star because there is not an option for "not applicable" since we didn't have the chance to try the restaurant.
The restaurant is staff by well meaning folks. Unfortunately, despite having plenty of staff, they missed on several service things. They auctioned food, forget one of our group's soup course and got the salad dressing wrong.
They were very attentive, but it was not well coordinated care.
The food was good - the brisket crepes were yummy, but the salad was flat - unexceptional.
I will give them another shot.
