I just expect more from restaurants with entrees at $30 and above. Also the wine selection was amateurish at good wine prices.

We were visiting Annapolis and found this place on TripAdvisor. We chose the vegetarian options made with cauliflower roasted portobello mushrooms and it was delightful. We sat outside with a lovely harbor view.

My spouse is hard of hearing but quick of intellect, and our server was quick to appreciate that and actually pulled up a chair to chat with us and describe the day’s specials. This never happens. It’s so nice bc we felt like we had his full attention and my SO was able to read his lips, follow everything, and ask questions. The food was exceptional as well & we will definitely be back. Apart from everything else, it was an experience to find a local place where it doesn’t feel like they are trying to hurry you out & move on to the next top/tip. Thanks, CC!

Delightful atmosphere and view of the Annapolis harbor. Friendly greeters and servers. Highly recommend salmon and swordfish. Bartender knows how to make great drinks. Take a date or an angry wife you need to make it up to.

The prices and the location suggest fine dining but the food was mediocre at best. The crab cakes didn’t seem fresh and the tuna tartare was not pleasing to my taste budss.

The food,service and location were all perfect. The cream of crab soup is very rich and has lots of crab in it. My husband had the special of lobster tail and crab cake. Both were very good. And my grilled fish (I think that was a special, too) was also excellent. Will definitely come back

Favorite for a special evening! We always look forward to the cream of crab soup, this time the chef wowed me with the sesame encrusted black tuna. It was a special - amazing. Their scallops over risotto were excellent, as was the best salad they split for two. The service was FANTASTIC. Be sure to tell them if it's a birthday or anniversary.

We sat outside next to water, nice but a tad warm; inside would have been more comfortable especially with large windows to look out. Food quality was good though crab cake was little small for the price. Herb crusted rockfish was delicious but should be renamed “herb dusted” as there was no “herb crust”. Attentive service. Overall a good experience.

This is a family restaurant on Spa Creek with a view of the US Naval Academy and Annapolis harbor.
The food is always of excellent quality and preparation. This was a birthday celebration and I was greeted with a birthday card presented when we were seated. Very nice touch! Since our server was in the preparation stages of side service Caesar salad for some customers, the hostess should have anticipated this service delay and taken a drink order. When asked for drink service, she immediately found someone. Carrol's Creek restaurant is one of our favorites and we will return. When the weather is not so hot, it is pleasant to be seated outside and watch the boats parade in the harbor. We shall return!

Sunday was my second trip for brunch. The first time I sat inside, everything was great. Maybe that made the difference, or it was bc I came later, or it was because we ate outside this time. My food was not hot. My spinach crab meat omelette only had 2 spinach leafs in it.😢. The potatoes and biscuit was hard. I will come back bc I love having dinner there with Mr. Butters as our server👍🏽.

Sunday Brunch: fabulous location! Ordered Steak Shrimp & Grits to learn they removed it from the menu. The lame excuse the server gave-"they didn't want more than one shrimp dish on the menu". Really? This is a seafood town! Although we were somewhat disappointed this visit, we've been to Carroll's for Brunch several times and have been very satisfied.

Made reservation for anniversary. Service was extremely slow. It was 25 minutes before we were approached by waiter for drink. When read specials he left several off his list. Of course one was a choice we would have made. Entree was presented before salad and soup. Waiter apologized that he was "new". When we approached manager he said waiter was not new but overwhelmed.
Never received coffee we ordered and were charged for extra dessert we never received. No apology from manager. He just asked if we were regulars. When we said a few times a year he basically ignored our response. Why does that even matter?
Very disappointing for our expectations and what we spent

Overall it was a good experience. Not the WOW factor I was expecting, based on it’s rating as one of the 2 best views in Maryland. The food was good but not great. The service was good but not great. It was quite awhile between courses.

Three of us had lunch at Carrol's Creek. We were seated outside on the patio which was lovely because the tables have umbrellas and there is a roof to shelter patrons from the sun. The restaurant is waterfront and has a great Annapolis harbor view. Two of us had the grilled swordfish which was fresh and very well prepared. The restaurant has "nut free" kitchen which was reassuring for one of our party with a nut allergy.
Our server was efficient and knowledgeable about the menu and the daily specials.
