Food was absolutely delicious. The crabcake stuffed lobster tails were outstanding. He Rockfish, a specialty, is not to be missed. Both of our steaks were cokked to perfection though obscured a bit by to the (delicious) sauce. The service was very polite, though a bit slow that night.

We sat outside, which was the best. it was at dusk, so daylight turning to lit up boats all around. I don't know about the noise level indoors, but outside it was perfect. The food was also perfect.

My wife and I dined here on saturday night. It was our anniversary. The restaurant has a little anniversary card which was nice. Whereas the service and food was good, the outside had very uncomfortable chairs and tiny tables. The inside could do with some nice pleasant music to help create additional ambiance. They did give us a free sweet on the house which again was a nice touch. But I would not class this restaurant as romantic.

This is an upscale restaurant near thr the harbor area of Annapolis. It is on the water with both indoor and outdoor seating. The menu his small and has a mix of surf and turf items as well as small plate options. Our experience was mixed. We had a pleasant time overall. The food was of average quality. Not worth the price. Part of my dish (the sides) was lukewarm and not particularly appetizing. The rest of my party had similar opinions. The server was friendly and very helpful, but overall, service was slow.

One of our many annual pilgrimages to Carrols Creek-always a must on our annual visit to the Annapolis Boat Show. The mussels were prepared to perfection-almost a meal in itself. Crabcakes were equally well prepared and worth the visit. The weather was perfect for patio dining, the view of the Boat Show and the Naval Academy and the busy boat traffic in the harbor added to the overall experience. Our server was attentive and well versed with both the menu and the wine offerings. A must for visitors to Annapolis.

 (Philadelphia)·Dined on October 1, 2017

Everyone applauded their food. One exception was the Cream of crab. Too much like a pudding not enough crab to call it a crab soup. Rock fish dish was the best I have ever had. Loved the view of the harbor. The vinaigrette on the salad was perfect. We were too filled up to do desserts on site. We ordered them and took them with us. Ours was a bread pudding. Without the ice cream which would have melted it was above average.

There are few places in the area that beat the combination of good food and great outdoor dining experience that you'll find at Carol's Creek. Already our favorite date place, we will come back many times. The view on the surrounding Marina is our favorite. The service is exceptional.

The food has always proven to be fantastic and that was certainly true on this visit. Our waiter was exceptional and offered to move us from the hot sun. When things got busier service did slow a bit, but you can't fault the waiter for that. The beer selection is great as well and we enjoyed a flight along with our meal. Always delicious!

My husband and I went to celebrate our anniversary and chose this place based on a recommendation. Nice atmosphere, outside seating available, but we ate indoors and we were easily able to have conversation.
We shared an appetizer of fried calamari, which was ok, but we asked for a regular cocktail type sauce as we didn't care for the smokey sauce that came with it. Nice table side Caesar with a LOT of parm, really too much. Scallop entree was very very salty, but they were cooked well. I didn't care for the sauce on the plate, would have been an excellent dish with just the scallops, rice and asparagus alone. I didn't finish it and wished I hadn't asked to take the rest home, as it wouldn't be eaten anyway. Steak was well seasoned and cooked as requested. Our server was attentive but not intrusive. Sadly, we don't feel the quality and taste of the food for the cost is worth a repeat visit. We really had high hopes, but it's another 1 and done in Annapolis.

Celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary! Our favorite item on the menu is the
Red Wine French Onion Soup! Outstanding !!
The table side Caesar Salad is also highly recommended.
Always a good Rockfish and Snapper option on the Entrees!
The daily specials are worth a try. Recommend a window table inside or deck seat outside.
Great harbor overlook!
Enjoy.

The service was very good. Our waitress was friendly, gave us time to select our entrees, answered questions we had. We neglected to tell her until we were getting ready to pay our bill that we wanted separate checks. She very politely said no problem.
Our meals were excellent! Each one of us had something different and we were all pleased with our choices.
I have always enjoyed Carrol's Creek and will be back!
