My tween daughter and I stopped in to Carol's for a relaxing lunch. We sat on their lovely terrace surrounded by vines. We both had Caesar salad and a grilled chicken sandwich that were really, really good. And the chocolate mouse cake was phenomenal. The servers were friendly and attentive. Highly recommend Carol's!

Stopped here for lunch, and was pleasantly surprised at the quality, atmosphere, and service. I have been to Baily's Winery (adjacent) several times over the years, but had never eaten here. The relaxing and causal-classy restaurant offers a nice and very reasonably priced menu of salads, pastas, burgers, sandwiches, etc, along with the wines of the Bailly winery. The intimate... More

The semi covered patio was nicely decorated. Very relaxing with the soft guitar music in the background. Our dog was treated like one of the guests. The waitress even talked with her....love that! Food was pleasant and reasonable priced. Most items were $13 and the Vineyard salad with chicken was perfect with their Chardonnay.

We stopped by here on my in-laws wedding anniversary trip. We specifically chose it because it is dog friendly but were delightfully surprised to see the special Doggie menu available on Sundays! We had a blast with our pets there and the staff was very accommodating. There was live music throughout our meal and the musician kept it at a... More

Carol is one of the Vintners for Bally Wines and has a wonderful restaurant, tucked right inside of the vineyard. Great selection of food to be paired with Bally wines.

Small, but intimate. Part of Baily's winery Waitresses are knowledgable about the wine and pairing with the menu. Love the outdoor patio. Especially love fried artichokes, salmon and two types of ravioli

My husband and I, and a friend, came to Carol's for lunch and we were not disappointed! It was our second time eating here, and we had all remembered it fondly. The day we ate here was overcast and rainy, so we sat in the indoor dining room. (The patio is also very nice, and is covered.) The dining room... More

Great Rueban Sandwiches and sweet potato fries with dip! Friendly waitresses, lovely atmosphere, especially when sitting outdoors near the grape vines on a sunny day (can't be beat!) They love dogs here and though we don't bring one with us it's never been a problem.

We stopped here on our way from the San Diego airport to Palm Springs. It was a little hard to find, it is not where their winery, Bailey's is. Got good directions from the hostess
