Chris our waiter was excellent. Great service and the meal was well prepared.
We went for our 8th anniversary. Great service, great food, beautiful view. A must if in Annapolis MD
Great spot, with a great view. Weather was too hot to sit outside on deck, but window view was excellent. Great lunch menu, food was very good!
Sitting outside is fantastic, but the service was very slow for drinks. Also the shrimp adobo salad was skimpy. Four pieces of shrimp and three skinny slices of grilled mango left for an underwhelming entree salad.
celebrated father's day here and had a delightful time! picturesque waterfront setting with nice big windows. very good service. food was so tasty! we started with the mussels - they were delicious, wish there had been more bread for dipping in the excellent broth (only 2 slices) but that's okay, we used the bread that was served pre meal. we dined on the scallops entree and the salmon entree. would highly recommend both. we will definitely be coming back again. next time we will dine outside and really experience the waterfront.
This was my 2nd visit. i went 2 years ago for my anniversary, this time for fathers day with a group. The food was great both times. This time the place seemed a little messy; like the seats had crumbs in them,, the floors needed a sweep, the bathrooms were not tidy and trash cans needed to be empty. It was Father's day and busy, but thats no excuse. For the kind of money spent at this spot, i would expect it to be cleaner.
We had reservations and got seated right away. our waiter lacked a personality and needed to be reminded of a request more than once.
But overall, a great dinner out. Caesar salad table side is everything.
Food was great as always and so was the service. The one disappointment I had told them it was a special anniversary dinner and wanted to make it nice. They sat us next to a wait staff service area where dishes, glasses and silverware was in constant loud motion. I had to go to the reception to inquire if they had received the special occasion request - they had but had not paid attention to the request. Disappointing
Had a delicious dinner on Saturday evening. Restaurant was amazingly busy and we had to wait awhile for our table. The hostess graciously gave us a round of free drinks to compensate for our wait. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Carroll’s Creek.
Service and food was great ! Our server / waiter “j” was tremendous , he was around just enough , the appetizers , drinks , wine and dinner came out at the perfect pace.
Too crowded with tables too close together. Best Caesar salad I’ve ever had. The rockfish and salmon were good.
Always excellent food and service. We are regulars, never have been disappointed.
We always enjoy the food and service at Carroll's Creek. They are consistently one of the best restaurants in Annapolis.
Service was excellent with the waiter explaining the three specials for the night. The special I ordered was changed at the last minute by the Chef. Waiter made me aware of the changes, but I still selected that item. Meal was served without a long wait even though the dining room was full. Excellent meal and will return.
Food was great, view was excellent
The food was excellent and the ambiance was great.
Oftentimes you have to sacrifice food for a beautiful view of the water - but not at Carrol’s Creek! This was our third time there, and we have never been disappointed. The oysters were the best I’ve ever had anywhere. Everyone loves their entrees.
Took my wife for a birthday lunch at the Cafe. Sat outside on the patio and had a delicious meal ( she had scallops, l had rockfish ) after which I had a craving for a malted vanilla milkshake. No such thing on the menu,but took a chance and asked anyway. Those wonderful folks at Carrol’s Creek accommodated us and made a fantastic malted, a rare occurrence, in my experience, in a fine dining restaurant but typical of Carrol’s Creek’s “customer comes first” philosophy. An overall wonderful experience.
Love the ambiance. Dining mid week gave best seating options - water view. New chef? All dishes seemed up a few notches from visit last summer.
My wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary and wanted to spend it in Annapolis. We had never been to Carols and found the outdoor dining to be perfect for us with great food, views and cozy enough for the two of us. Oysters and barbecue shrimp were great. Fantastic service as well.
We had friends visiting and they loved watching the sunset. The food was very good with a nice spin on barbecued shrimp. I wasn’t a fan of the tuna tartar, too much ginger and didn’t care for it being on rice. That said, my husband thoroughly enjoyed the unusual scallops dish. The house salad was deliscious. Service was friendly, the artwork on the walls was terrific. I will certainly go back.
Tasty food, well prepared. Good service. That's a good combination. Nice water view as well. I would definitely go back.
We dine at Carrol's a few times a year and overall, we always enjoy the experience. We've dined both inside and out and both are enjoyable. As far as the noise level, once our neighbor left, who's conversation we could hear better than our own, it was peaceful and relaxing. My only real complaint was the cream of crab soup. My sister in law and I both had it and we both agreed that whatever thickening agent the chef used was too much and it not only took over the flavor of the soup, I could barely taste the crab and there was not a hint of sherry in the flavor and it was just to thick - almost a paste. I did mention what I thought to the waitress and in hindsight, I should have just turned it back but I ate it anyway. Cream of Crab is one of my favorite soups and I will generally order it when I dine out so I think I'm a pretty good judge of what's good and what's not. Maybe this was just a bad batch because I know I've had it at Carrol's in the past and I can't recall not enjoying it in dining's past. Asides from that, I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who asks.
Lovely location and ambiance. Excellent set and delicious food.
Excellent service and food. I don’t mind spending the high price for the food when the service and food is so good .
Good food and service, very busy on Saterday night.
FABULOUS from appetizer to the espresso
The beet salad was delicious. The shrimp salad sandwich was very tasty and light. I opted for the Key Lime Frozen Souffle and was very happy with my choice, not something I have had before but really enjoyed.
Just was a great experience. Carroll Creek has a beautiful view, excellent food and very nice service. It Is ideal for watching the boats. They have 2 1/2 hours validated parking which comes in very handy. So I shell crab special was really excellent and service was very professional.
Great meal made even better by our fantastic waiter, Dave.
The ambience is always great but I was disappointed in the service and meals . This was one of my favorite places to go in Annapolis but the cream of crab soup was cold, the food was luke warm, the service was not great. They have change the bread pudding to some kind of donut bread pudding. Overall I did not get the food and service I am used to. Very disappointed. I may give them another try, hopefully it will be better.
We went to Carrol’s Creek Cafe to celebrate our anniversary. Everything about it was great! To feel of the restaurant was nice and relaxing, the server was knowledgeable about the menu and specials and he food was awesome! We were even treated to a special happy anniversary card and a great dessert! Highly recommend sitting outside on a nice day! It was overall a great experience!
This was our first time at Carrol’s Creek Cafe and we loved it. A beautiful day and an early start allowed us to enjoy a leisurely lunch of delicious local crab before the crowds. The staff was lovely, the parking easy, and the view fabulous!
The main dining room smelled very stale, but thankfully we were seated outside. Our waiter was great. Service was great. Our food was not. Lobster tails were overcooked, rubbery, and salty. Nothing on the menu was particularly interesting, but that would be fine if it were prepared well.
Food was bland. For the high prices, I would expect more.
Fantastic evening on the deck! Highly recommend the baked oysters.
Service was great, very timely and very attentive. Food was very well prepared. Specials that day were great choices. Dessert menu was very appropriate. Overall great experience.
Amazing food, amazing customer service, wonderful ambiance! The waterfront views was very relaxing. Upon arriving we were seated immediately.
Our server was great at giving us details about each appetizer and entree to help us decide which of the many wonderful options would fit what we were in the mood for.
The food was top notch and the perfect portions.
Will come again and would recommend to anyone looking for a great restaurant for date night, anniversary, dinner and drinks with friends, any reason to celebrate.
Loved the food. There was a mix up in our order but one of the owners came to our table an straightened everything out. We and our friends had a great time.
We love this place and will go back soon for my wife's birthday.
Great service and great food the swordfish was exceptional definitely will be back.
Wick was a great server. Perfect place to enjoy a meal with friends on the back deck.
