I really don't want it to get around but this is a delightful spot. Food is always good and service just fine. Been coming here for 40 years through several owners and have always had a good time I like the comfortable atmosphere especially Please don't let this get around. I don't want to have to complete for a table... More

Service was decent, could have been a little more attenrive. Wings were fabulous, ribs were good but the sauce seemed too sweet for my taste. My wife LOVES the Austin chicken. She gets it every time we go there.

We live close by and frequently go for dinner on a whim. They are always accommodating, friendly and the food is consistently good.

Exceeds expectations every time. Food, Service & Ambiance. Had a marvelous dinner this past weekend. Sat near the fire, ordered a single malt Scotch and got warmed up. Feels like we stepped back into the 1940's, beautiful log cabin, terrific background music and servers are kind and sweet. My wife loves the wings and I ordered healthy: Cedar plank salmon... More

We have dinner there often. They have little turnover of servers and since we are regulars we know many of the staff. They are courteous, knowledgeable, and attentive. Food is better than average and while we have our favorites, we like most items on the menu. Deserts are especially good, and are homemade! Highly recommended.

Good food at a fair price. Comfortable seating in a variety of different areas, from tables surrounded by windows to cozy booths. Service was great and portions were generous. Great desserts too.

Rustic look. Can always depend on the Carolina House for a good meal. Comfortable atmosphere. You can dress up a bit or wear your jeans and you'll be fine. Good place for meat lovers.

We made the mistake of sitting at the bar to get something to eat and drink. We ordered appetizers intending to order more but the service was so terrible after 90 minutes we decided not to order anything else. Plus the bartender never asked. But the small amount of food we got was actually very delicious. I recommend sitting in... More

The atmosphere was nice, but we were still comfortable in jeans, which is a rare find. The staff was nice. We had calamari as a starter, which was good, I like a light battered calamari and that's what they have. They have a good variety without having too many choices. I had chicken and penne, it was cooked perfectly and... More
