Lovely atmosphere, attentive service. Wonderful to have comp dessert and candle for birthday.
Ribs dry--not the best choice. Sides great.
Service and food were both great. We had a wonderful evening.
The food was great! But the service; NOT so much. The waiter wasn’t attentive.
Our waitress Samantha was awesome. And the food was great too!
This was the only time where the ribs just weren't seasoned that great. I used the term porky but the manager and waiter laughed me and so I just told them really straightforward, the ribs are gross today. The manager I believe was offended, and didn't think it was good practice to at least say "hey guys sorry you didn't like your food, is there anything else you want". No he just brought our check, didn't even offer dessert, not did they pack our food, but did pack the entire group of people sitting at the same table. A $300 dinner turned into a slightly above $100 dinner. I might come back, it was quite apparent that they could care less.
The food was absolutely amazing. There was a Bucks game so it was overly crowded and the service was extremely slow. She was polite, just slow and somewhat forgetful. The manager seem to be very attentive. Very pricey.
Been to Carson's many times. The food is outstanding, and consistently so. You won't go wrong with anything from the menu - salads are great, sandwiches are great. The ribs are outstanding, as well as their chicken and seafood options. Carson's is one of only a handful of great restaurants in the downtown area, in my opinion.
Ribs were so tough deffintley not fall of the bone style ribs. Pork chops were dry as the dessert if the wouldn't of brought the extra bbq sauce would of never been able to finish them. The chicken was great and the shrimp app was good. Will never be back again, wasn't impressed at all.
I love this place. Have been here several times, food is affordable, steak is around 40 bucks which is the most expensive dish here. The staff are very friendly. The ambience is relaxing, you would feel very comfortable eating here.
Salad delicious. Pork chop was dry and sort of tasteless. Coleslaw amazing. Key lime pie great.
Waitress was great. Bucks game that night. Very crowded and noisy. No parking at all and that is a VERY bad situation for this restaurant-
I will try again.
Carson’s wasn’t what I expected. Food was okay, service was good. I was expecting something a little more swanky and refined. The table for four was good for two people-that really turns me off. I don’t like moving plates around like chess pieces. Mediocre at best - won’t be back.
Food was subpar. Drinks were horribly syrupy. Will not be returning
Carson's was great again! My steak was a tad over done this time but not enough to be sent back. One of the top flavored strip steaks around. We chose it over a few classics for my wife's birthday and were not disappointed.
Only thing I didn't like is you have to pay for all sides and the meal is already costly.
Amazing ribs, will order them again. Also the cornbread was divine.
Our second visit; this time the steak was great but the ribs were not...too fatty and the sauce that came on the ribs was not tasty. We didn’t complain due to Valentines Day! Didn’t want to change the mood for other customers.
The Greek Chicken
Overall great experience. Great service, good food.
It was great!
Rating is based on the fact that my initial rib order was overdone, dry and burned (beyond BBQ burned). The waiter dismissed it as my requesting no extra sauce. The manager came and offered to try another rack with a "little" extra sauce. The second serving was a different cut of ribs (baby back) totally different from the first order. I also used a Groupon and believe that the first order was a cheaper cut of meat. Had I gotten the second rack first, the rating would be 5's.
Manager was pleasant and apologetic. All other food was well presented and service was good.
Took a little long given there were only two other people in the restaurant .
I will return, now that I know how to order the ribs...
We had a great waitress. Seem to be out of things a few times we have been there. Parking sucks. Love the food
Food was the best BarBS we have had in the area. Parking was challenging but well worth it. Portion sizes are good. Fast, friendly service.
Delish and great deal with the Groupon. Our waiter was also awesome!
One of our favorites. Food is consistently delicious comfort food. Everything from their Mediterranean shrimp appetizer, Caesar salad to the steaks, salmon, ribs..just all of it is outstanding. Don’t forget to order one of their yummy potatoes, too.
Carlos & Sam are 2 of our favorite waiters.
Chelsey was an awesome waitress!
Very helpful, kind and polite to us elders.
Thanks for another great experience!
Everything is fine. This won’t be the best meal you’ve ever had nor will it be the worse. Flavor profiles of food are underdeveloped. Nothing that you couldn’t make at home.
Always a great experience with food well executed and great service.
Great service. Good food. Good time. I’ll come back & recommend to friends
Ribs were a bit overcooked and the baked potato was luke warm.
Restaurant seems to be slipping a bit from previous excellent dinners.
This was our fourth time eating at Carson's. As usual, amazing. Food and service were great.
Our first time at Carson's. Steaks and ribs were very good. We enjoyed the food and the experience. We're likely to return again at some point in the future.
What a great place, waiter was very good, nice seating, when there to have the chargrilled pork chops that i kept hearing about. When they came out it was like WOW, 1 lb each and cooked perfect! Could only eat one and one went home with us. What a great chop, will be back for that again!
Great location. Consistent good food, oood fish of the day. and service. Very good desserts. Of course don't forget the ribs
Our food ticket didn't get to the kitchen until an hour after we ordered. So the waiter and manager apologized and told my date and I that our food would come right out. However, due to the "rush order" on our food, the meal was "over-cooked". I kindly asked our waiter to have them remake our meal and the chef kindly did (with better quality and tenderness). SOo, even though the date started off rough - the staff and management went above and beyond to make things right!! My date and I left, very satisfied with our meal!
This was my first time at Carson's.
The food was very good. I had the Steak and Crab Cake. I am not rib eater;
but my husband is and he said they were cooked to perfection. Our waitress Sam had an energetic and polite personality. She was very good at her job. We need more waitresses like her.
Way over priced! Not impressed at all. The water was outstanding tho.
Fantastic ribs and steak. I would highly recommend this place if you are in the downtown Milwaukee area.
Good time, but very cold in bar area. Also, it would be nice to offer valet service for parking.
We went out there for Christmas dinner never been there all we had was a nasty tasteless steal me and my fiance augratin potatoes that was cold as ever and one drink our bill was $114.00 Applebees would of been better and for only 40.00. Only nice thing was out waiter and I would never recommend anybody horrible just horrible worst Christmas we had
We visited on Christmas Day for dinner. Carson’s had a good vibe and was pretty crowded given the day.
Food - much better than expected after reading reviews about tough ribs and so-so steaks. Our ribs were smoky, and flavorful with a perfect texture. The prime NY Strips were excellent although they lacked the char that a 1,500 degree broiler can provide. Still a very tasty steak! Salads, apps, and drinks were all very good.
Service - our waitress (Sam) was wonderful. Our party of six included a one year old who was not interested in sitting quietly throughout dinner. Sam was very accommodating without making us feel like she was being put out.
Experience - we thoroughly enjoyed our Christmas Dinner at Carson’s. If we are in town again next year, I wouldn’t think twice about a repeat visit!
