As someone who had been to Carrol's Creek many times in the past, I was looking forward to seeing it after a remodel. From my memory, it was exactly the same. It was not a great first date spot. The lights were SO BRIGHT. There was also no background music. Just not particularly great ambiance all the way around. The food is good, but it's not cheap. For the price, there are better spots for a date.

If you want a good meal and great service, go tot Carrol's Creek. The crab soup and rockfish are must-haves. Love the views from the window as well. They also have a fun bar atmosphere.
Overall-a great place to go for special occasions or a nice romantic meal, or family brunch!!

Service was excellent. Noise was minimum permitting easy casual and business conversation. Food was well presented and ample in portion. Scallops were perfectly cooked but swordfish was over spiced. Price was a little on high side for the area. Overall a good experience. Will come back, but not everyday.

We really love going to Carrols for specific menu items that have become favorites. Our most recent experience was on par with most, very enjoyable. The only issue I have was my soup ended up being really salty. I can move past that since the rest of the meal was outstanding. She did warn me about the soup prior to me ordering it as well. Any other day their French onion soup is stellar. We will be back soon.

Very nice place with a great view of the water.
The food was outstanding. Rockfish especially good. Crab soup was a bit "floury", but had lots of crab in it.
We were surprised the prices were not as high as we thought they would be.

A delayed date night/ anniversary dinner. Had Swan as a waitress, fantastic and friendly and gave all her personal recommendations did not disappoint. Made anniversary dessert special with a candle and took it off our bill too! She is a fantastic waitress and the rockfish over risotto was amazing! Will definitely be going back !

Went here mid-day on Saturday and the place was quite full, and so a little noisy, but really not bad. Would have loved any type of a view but were almost as far from the windows as you could get which was a little disappointing especially after having driven an hour to meet friends there. But the food was good, as was the wine/drink list. Nothing terribly special/fancy but very tasty and at reasonable prices. Service was also good, with our waiter quite willing to take the obligatory table picture.

Carrol's Creek is a traditional Annapolis seafood restaurant but always with a current flair. You can always count on food being consistently great.

We had window seat over looking Spa Creek which was great for our Anniversary. Our waiter was excellent. The food as always was the best. My only complaint was that they would only honor one of my certificates that were both issued by Carroll’s Creek. Will we go back for sure.

What an incredible place! Upon arrival we were treated with the greatest care and luckily had Taylor as our server. She was bubbly, friendly, and attentive. A very personable young lady. All the food from the grilled salmon, crab cakes, and pasta were so good! Five people including drinks $200. IMO well worth it!

First date she was impressed I think both of the main courses were ok not as moist and tasted mediocre. Rockfish and Swordfish . Having singers / choir was great. I wish I knew they were coming. Awesome idea

We enjoyed the food very much and the waiter was excellent, The restaurant was quiet enough to chat. My daughter and her fiancé were underdressed . She felt it was noticed and it made her uncomfortable. I note this because she is rarely offended. I felt it as well.

Dining at Carrol's Creek Cafe is always a pleasure. The food is very tasty, especially the fried calamari! I try to go to this restaurant several times a year, especially in the summer when one can eat outside on the porch.
I did have the scallop dish under "Starters" but I do think $19 for just 2 scallops is a bit much.

We picked Carrol’s Creek because it’s not normally so noisy that you have to shout to be heard across the table. Unfortunately, that was not the case on Saturday. We were a bit disappointed in that. On the other hand, the food was good and the service excellent.
