    Our Valentines Day lunch was very memorable. The food was excellent and our server really made us feel welcome and important. We never felt rushed, but had just the right amount of attention. A must return place.

    Dined on 2/2/2013
    we have eaten here many times and it has always been very good. tonight was not their night. our party (of 8) was seated over half an hour after our reservation and while the table seemed to be set and ready for at least 15 minutes we had to ask to be seated. the service was bare minimum. she took our order and brought our food. that was it. the majority of our dishes were cold. we had to get up to find someone for more water, etc. as I said, this is hardly our first time there and we will certainly be back but had this been our first time at carefree station we probably would not be returning.

    Their Sunday brunch with free champagne is always reasonably priced, the menu is extensive, and the prices are very reasonable. Try it once and you will surely go again.

    Loved all the variety and given that we had a party of five, we tasted a lot of the appetizers and entrees. My husband loved the tasting flight od single malt scotch and the service was professional and not hurried. We sat right by a big fireplace and it was warm and cozy on a brisker than normal Arizona night. Great find for us...we will return

    We always enjoy going to Carefree Station. There are lots of amazing choices for foodies, and since my husband & I are both dairy insensitive, we appreciate the way the chef can always accommodate our restrictions. In warm weather, eat outside on the upper deck, it is beautiful.

    A great Christmas dinner! Been coming here for years and never a disappointment. The menu here is so unique, no one in the valley makes food like this. We have never had a bad meal here, always consistently fabulous! The only thing I didn't appreciate on this occasion was that the gratuity was included in the price, which was not the real issue, but the fact that our server did not tell us that, even though he was watching my wife trying to calculate the tip. The only reason I asked her to check the bill for the gratuity was that the total seemed a little high for what we ordered. Not cool at all, but I will remember this guy if he ever waits on us again. Previously we have always had stellar service here.

    We are so happy to have such a fine restaurant so close to our home. Great atmosphere .... indoors in the cooler weather and outdoors in the garden when the weather is warmer. Got to try the deck some time as well. Was very happy to see how busy this restaurant has gotten in recent years after a not-so-great start even though we personally have never had a negative experience. The menu has delicious options for everyone... with smaller portions available for those with smaller apetites.
