The food was awesome such flavor from the appetizer to the dessert. The service was excellent from Jimmy the chef to his wife Lily and our waitress. Inside I loved the ambience of the restaurant. We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and they all made it wonderful. Thank you for the great food and making our wedding anniversary perfect.

My husband and I were vacationing in DeLand and searched for a great dining experience and found it at Karlings, a seafood and German restaurant on the outskirts of DeLand, FL. Our waitress was very attentive and personable and the meal came in a very timely manner. We ordered the Beef Stroganoff/ fillet Mignon tips in a puff pastry basket... More

We only drove 35 minutes to get here for our first visit. My family tried all the entrees. Prime Rib, Salmon an the classic turkey. Everything was cooked to perfection and served promptly. The giblet gravy was excellent. The sage dressing had unusual and enjoyable flavor, and the pecan crusted pumpkin pie was the perfect ending, as was the wonderful... More

We were the first to arrive when the doors opened to be greeted by Kristen. Turned out to be only her second day on the job and she was nervous, but she didn't need to be. She was quite charming and attentive. By the time we left, the restaurant was nearly full. We really enjoyed our salads with hot bacon... More

This review is a combined evaluation over two visits. The first visit was a special event, wife's birthday, with a large group... the second was a quiet dinner for two. The first visit we all had an item off the German menu, everything was delicious from the salad with hot bacon dressing to the fresh rolls and bread. The entrees... More

We had an early dinner before going to the theater. Menu offered a great selection as well as Summer Specials which we chose. Freshly baked rolls were delicious. Cucumber salad to start with, I had scallops with German sausage and my wife had trout. Both entrees came with a tasty German potato cake. We finished the meal with a cream... More

We had driven past Karlings Inn a few times but never really considered stopping because it is kind of away from everything else. On this occasion, we were headed to Deland in the early evening and decided to stop for dinner on our way home. When we arrived around 8pm, we were the only people there, so service wasn't an...
