Delicious food and service. Would highly recommend this restaurant, especially for special occasions. The night we dined at this restaurant, there was a business meeting/party which was rather loud. This, however, did not distract from the wonderful food and good service that we received. I look forward to our next dinner outing at Carrol's Creek!

I made a reservation for 3pm on Sunday. That must be when they turn over from brunch to dinner because upon arrival, the table was not ready, though the dining room was empty. We had to wait nearly 10 minutes, despite being on time and not early, for the table to "be set." Then the service and menu left a lot to be desired. At 3 it would have been nice to have some lunch type options, and not just the dinner menu. The waiter was quirky, and not necessarily in a good way. Service was slow, food was mediocre for the price point, and the room was loud. Needless to say I was disappointed for a place that attempts to be "fine dining" on the water.

CCC did not live up to billing this time around. Food was not up to par, service was poor, and they gave away my confirmed reservation after we checked in, so we had to wait for next available. Caesar Salad came without anchovies or parmesan cheese and we had to beg for cracked fresh pepper. We were entertaining out of town guests and had built it up, based on our last two experiences, but it just didn't compare this time around. Disappointing. Came back for lunch in the bar the next day and service was much better, but food was still short of expectations. We'll give it another try in hopes of an improvement.

We had a reservation and were seated right away. The wait staff were exceptional. The food was as the waiter described wonderful and delicious. Beautiful view but the noise level of some of the patrons was loud and boisterous, not the first time this happened. I would not go here expecting a quiet dinner.

Overpriced. Disappointing. Over cooked a 42.00 rib eye dinner, sent back my date was done with his dinner by the time mine came back however it was cooked properly the second time. Crab Cake dinner had smaller Crab Cakes then previous visits, no reasonably priced house Red wine.

Beautiful view on the water to eat and drink. Food is outstanding! We had dinner with wine and the herb encrusted rockfish and the crab cake. Both excellent!! You can't beat sitting on the water looking towards the Naval Academy. Beautiful night.

We wanted to dine on the light side and found the salads and small plates to be perfect. We both had spinach salads that skipped the fat and calorie heavy bacon dressing for a much lighter citrus dressing that was well matched to the contents of the dish. We then had the small plate rack of lamb (3 lollipops) and the tuna tartar. Both dishes were superb: well presented, well prepared, and very tasty. We did succumb to the Bread Pudding dessert in spite of our best intentions. I am not a bourbon drinker but the sauce on the bread pudding is outstanding!

Been here several times as my husband works in the building. Food and service have always been excellent. Most recently I met friends who came from DC and northern Va and they said it was definitely worth the drive. We will be coming back!

I took my Goddaughter to Carrol’s Creek Cafe for her birthday dinner. We enjoyed our meal. The food was very good. I got the mushroom risotto and my Goddaughter had the crab cakes with shrimp. The food was freshly prepared and presented beautifully . We shared the bread pudding, which was just okay, definitely not a highlight. We found the bread pudding too be too dense for a yummy bread pudding. We will definitely come back to Carrol’s Creek Cafe as the overall quality of service and food were good.

Celebrated Aunt’s 90th Birthhday with four female cousins.’we were a major pain as several of us had menu restrictions, we arrived at different times, and we constantly ordered more drinks and other items. Catalino was an amazingly knowledgeable server who was so kind and patient with all our requests. The food was very good, and considering how much we drank and ate, the bill was very reasonable. Well Done!

My husband and I were rather disappointed with our meal on this visit. This is the first time we have been back in 7 years. We still love it for the waterfront views and casual dining, however the food was not very special. I had the rock fish... I truly think it is a crime to bread crumb rock... and it was a bit over cooked. My husband's cioppino was good but not special. I must say the ceasar salad had good taste but over dressed. .. Good news.. the server was good and very attentive

The food and atmosphere was fabulous. Our waitress, however, was very rushed. She would ask a question, then leave if we we did not answer immediately. We ordered the ceasar salad for 2, which is made at the table side. She seemed stressed, as she was making it. When it was time to serve the salad, the amount that was dropped on the floor could have been a serving. Overall, great night. We were happy to be together. The waitress just drew too much attention to herself, because of her responses and lack of a smile.
