Sweet Caroline's Ratings and Reviews
We had been here years ago and did not think about going back but had seen some good reviews and decided to give it another chance. Three of us ordered the crab cake and were highly disappointed. It amazes me that a Baltimore restaurant cannot make a good or even great crab cake.
When the waitress told us they were out of biscuits and no potatoes for fries we were disappointed. Then when they brought a mimosa in a water glass with ice in it we were befuddled. When the shrimp po' boy only had 4 shrimp we were dejected.
The place is quaint (meaning small and kinda cute) and the staff was friendly. The blood orange mimosa was spectacular. The signature chicken and waffle nachos dish was an inspired fusion of southern and southwestern. It was tasty but a little greasy.
Overall it was just an ok experience. I rate it meh. There wasn't anything about the experience that makes me want to suggest to anyone.
We went on Mother's Day for brunch, had an 1130am reservation and was sat right away. The waiter seemed flustered, like he would rather be behind the bar than waiting tables. So we placed our order, nothing complicated- 2 crepes and an order of chicken and waffle nachos which I saw a kitchen staff member getting a box of frozen waffles from the basement, btw - no kids menu. It took is an hour to get our food, though the food was tasty. When we got the bill, I noticed my husband's bloody Mary was $4, my coffee was $3 and our six year old daughter's milk that was in a kid's cup was $4. Not worth the money.
We made a reservation well in advance, we received confirmation via email and text message. We arrived 15 min prior to our scheduled time, to be told our reservation had been cancelled because they called us the day before...So I checked my missed calls, mind you we are in the Washington, Maryland, Virginia area...I had a missed call from TEXAS!! TEXAS!!! THEY CALLED FROM A TEXAS NUMBER!! WHAT THA HELL?!
I started writing this review in my head, the evening after we dined there. It was a terrible experience!
We walked in and the bartender screamed across the room "Do you have a reservation?". We said "Yes" and she said "You can have either of those tables." Not the way you like to be greeted at a restaurant~not very welcoming.
We sat down and were told we had to move because that wasn't one the tables she wanted us at. We obvioulsy didn't know that or we would not have sat there. We sat where she pointed.
To make a long story short, I will simply say that this restaurant is not clean. The servers were all dressed in stained street clothes, including people from the kitchen who walked out and put the food on the table. The glasses were dirty. The attitude was awful.
As for the food, the two sandwiches that we ordered were nothing to pseak of, just plain sandwiches with not much taste.
We will never revisit this place or recommend it to anyone.
We dine out locally, often and this has to be the worst place yet!
Dined for breakfast! My chicken and waffle nachos were deeeeeeelish. I did notice the coffee pots were not clean...as though they keep rebrewing without cleaning. My husband said the restroom was unclean for them to have just opened...we were the first patrons. Overall, my waitress was pleasant and efficient. I would dine again.
Very surprised that this was a small bar type restaurant. We almost did not stay. I'm so glad I did the chicken/waffle nachos were the best!!!!
It reminded me of Cheers. A place where everyone knows your name!! Will be back for sure.
First time here and it was amazing!! The cocktails and all of the food were delicious! We had crepes, chicken & waffle nachos, chipotle cinnamon fries (and more!) and fried peanut butter cronuts for dessert! The staff were friendly & very helpful with recommendations. I've been raving about the place non-stop to others since our brunch, and can't wait to go back!
I'm glad I discovered this small but lively restaurant in Locust Point. The food was reasonably priced and pretty good. When we went, it was wine and paint night. Only caveats: The woman's bathroom is teeny tiny. Also, skip the cronuts. They were very greasy. Otherwise, great place!
Friendly service, but very mediocre food. One of the desserts we ordered was just downright nasty. Also we were seated at a table placed between the doors for the ladies and mens bathrooms. Ugh. There are too many other better choices in Baltimore, we won't be back.
My family of three ( teen boy, 8 yo girl, and me) thoroughly enjoyed this neighborhood. At 6pm, we were one of three parties dining. By the time we left at 7:30pm, the place was coming to life. We dined on the chicken waffle tacos (OMG), crab, buffalo chicken, shrimp po' boys, and for dessert the Cronus and fudge brownie sundae. My kids really liked the iced tea, too. The service was quick, responsive, and friendly. We highly recommend this place.
We were really looking forward to a meal at this neighborhood restaurant given it had a 4 star rating on open table. I give this feedback as constructive only and hope the restaurant owners take it as such. My lamb burger was raw and after sending it back, I received a new burger that was 1/3 the size of the original. My husband got the BBQ brisket and it was slathered with BBQ sauce, completely devoid of any peach flavor. We paid $17 for that dish and while my husband has a hearty appetite he left the majority of his plate unfinished. Finally the bartender was drinking, which the owners should know as I'm sure they are losing money because of this guy. Revamp your menu and get real employees who care about your business otherwise you'll be closing soon.
We had a 5 pm dinner reservations for four on Father's Day. I was looking for a nice laid back location with good food. My husband and children were pleased with this selection. There were only a few other guests, not sure a reservation was actually needed. We received good service and the food was delicious.
Great creative brunch items and large, amazingly delicious mimosas! Just be aware that the portions are not large. My friends ordered crepes and were still a bit hungry--hence the moderate score on value. Get one of the yummy-looking side dishes to round things out. Good food and friendly, hip-neighborhood-bar atmosphere. Would love to come back sometime to try out other non-brunch items.
We checked out sweet Caroline's because of the 1000 open table points offered for setting a reservation. Sadly we were the only guests in the restaurant on a Sunday evening at 5:30. The food and service were great. I enjoyed the meatloaf tower-decadent but oh so good. The whiskey mule I had with it was very nice too. I definitely will be back to try some other things from the menu.
I chose this restaurant to participate in the "Paint and Pub" event that was being held there so I took several of my friends with me to have dinner prior to the event. The service was great but the food was not very good. I ordered the pot pie which was too creamy and the pastry needed to be baked a little more. Quite disappointing to say the least. However, if you are looking for a nice little corner bar, have some appetizers and chat, this would be a neat little spot.
We made a New Year's Eve reservation based on a friend's recommendation. When we arrived at 7:15 pm, the place was practically empty in the bar and we were shown to our table on the 2d floor. No one was in the 2d floor dining room. Not a good sign. When the waitress came to take a drink order, my step mother ordered a Malibu Bay Breeze. The waitress dismissively said, "We don't have Malibu Rum. We don't have Captain Morgan." My dad ordered Absolut on the rocks. Waitress: "We don't have Absolut." Not once did she (or could she, rather) recommend something in place of these brands. She did not know whose Bloody Mary mix the establishment uses and we had to wait for her to go back downstairs to find out. I ordered a Lemon Crush which three people at our table tasted and agreed there was little if any vodka in the drink. My boyfriend took the drink to the bar and asked for more vodka. We were charged $4.50 for a shot of vodka on top of a $6.50 drink. Ridiculous. My dad's wife ordered a half of a chopped salad. The waitress explained they could only offer a large size salad so my dad suggeted that he would split the salad with his wife. We were charged $4.00 split charge on a $10 salad. Again--ridiculous. Nothing was said to us about either of the extra charges at the time we made our requests. It wasn't until the check was offered that my boyfriend noticed the up charges. He did not want to make a scene in front of my parents and so he paid the bill as it was presented. The waitress service was unpolished and sub par. It was as if we were imposing on the staff and were obviously not "regulars." The waitress had to read the night's specials from a note card she carried in her pocket. This place is a neighborhood bar that is wishes it was a nice restaurant. We have no plans to go back.
Unfortunately the best part of the dinner was the oatmeal stout. The Thai chili was OK, but the crawfish gnoochi suffered from too much lemon juice. The chicken on the Texas sushi was tasty, but the risotto was tasteless.
Sorry to say there are too many other small pubs in the area for this one to stay on the list of places to go.
