While staying at the Carlsbad Inn we ate there based on recommendations. We were not disappointed, food was very good, large portions and reasonably priced.

This small place has excellent food and the portions were plentiful. This is not the place for ambiance, but definitely the place for casual dining with delicious food!

We didn't know what to expect but it was a great meal. All of the servers were always checking on us. The meals were huge and we couldn't even finish them.
