We stopped in for lunch based on reviews and we were very happy with our experience. Very enthusiastic staff who believes in the freshness of their food. French dip was delicious and the cole slaw and potato salad were fresh and delicious

We attend spring training every year. From 2009 until now it has been a regular visit! The blood orange margarita was to die for! The owners and the wait staff were excellent! Two years ago the bar sold, and everything changed. For the last two years we have stopped in to see how it's going. Definitely not the same welcome.... More

We tried Karsen's based on a recommendation from a friend. We are glad we tried it. Waitress and bartenders are always friendly and the food is good. Burgers and fries are my favorite. On Sundays they also do a small brunch menu with mimosas.

Not nearly as good since getting new owners. Food is sub par & the worst Bloody Mary I have ever had. Will stop in on occasion just for a beer.

Everything recommended was very good. My husband had the Cuban (with a K) sandwich which was delicious. I had the south western Cobb with candied jalapeños. Our friends had... More

We went to the Grill on a Sunday afternoon. It seemed like there were a few locals. I ordered a small Caesar salad and it was the perfect size. My husband had one of the burgers and said it was also very good. The sweet potato fries were so delicious! I recommend this for people looking for a smaller intimate... More

We stopped in for lunch after reading Yelp reviews and were very glad we did! The Cuban was amazing! The smoked bbq pork adds some amazing flavor. The breads are super fresh. Big portions, great price! Friendly service, if we lived in the area we would become regulars!!

Great surprise! Followed a recommendation and went to this little place with the girls and had a terrific lunch! Scott the bartender/waiter handled the whole place with ease and had a great personality.
