We were in Chapel Hill for four days. We tried all the best reviewed restaurants we could while we were there. Crossroads was definitely the best. The food was fantastic. We will definitely be returning. Every single thing we ate we liked a lot.

Reserved a table for special celebration. Received an email and text confirmation. Also received a personal phone call to confirm so when we showed up and they had no reservation I was shocked. It was not a problem as they had plenty of open tables but disappointing to say the least. Also disappointing when we sat for 10 minutes with no one to offer us water or service. Had to ask two times for a server. Clearly they were understaff. Very disappointed since this was a special occasion.

Buffet is $29/ person for food that is average, sometimes tasteless, and service that was very lacking. We pay for the location, which is beautiful. The variety of breakfast options was indeed stellar, including desserts, but the quality of the food was subpar. Overpriced brunch.

Surprised that you don't offer a grilled shrimp opportunity to go with a salad, as you do that for scallops.

Seems easy enough. Waiter said only that you can only get the breaded deep fried version.

Dining room/bar felt sterile with no personality. Desperately needs some color to punch up decor. Bench seating was dirty and needed a good wipe down. Server was distracted and got order wrong. Very disappointed as my guest was eating there for first time.

Fantastic Sunday buffet however, some of the bread items were dry. Our particular server was not very attractive. We had to ask for coffee and water refills and he was very sloppy with poring the coffee. Other than that it was great atmosphere

This is really a wonderful environment with lots of energy being right on the UNC Campus. The decor is quite relaxed for an Inn that is decidedly old school. We recently moved to the area and have stayed at the inn and eaten here numerous times and generally enjoy ourselves.
Our reservation for writing this review is primarily about the food which is inconsistent. On a recent dinner a chicken dish was so over salted that my granddaughter was unable to eat it. Just this past Saturday we ordered the Lump Crab soup that was also over salted and had no crabmeat. My wife's Pork Chop, ordered medium rare came mostly well done which means that it was dry and nearly inedible.
The wine list is acceptable but pricey.
If you want a place with atmosphere and OK food this is for you. but if you are after a great meal you will need to search for it here because of its inconsistency. There are numerous hotels and inns that have excellent food. The Carolina should be that too.

The table was immediately available even though there had been a reception at the Inn that afternoon, the waiter was very attentive and provided a detailed description of the specials for the evening. The delivery of the order was very timely and the food was delicious! What more could a diner ask for??

I took my boyfriend here for Sunday brunch for his birthday and, unfortunately, did not have good service. The person who was at the omelette kept taking breaks to talk to people in the hallway, so it was hard to catch him to get an omelette made. Also, our server was inattentive, so we did not get the fresh fruit, biscuits and smoothie until the middle of our meal. Our plates were not cleared as we were eating and we had to go to the front of the restaurant to get our check and pay.

Crossroads came highly recommended by several friends of mine for special occasions, so I was very surprised at this level of service. I was very grateful that the food was at least as good as promised. It's just disappointing that the service didn't live up to the reputation or the occasion.

I know every establishment has an off day, so will be happy to amend my review after I have a phenomenal experience here. Until then, I have to give it a 'fair' rating.

Food was great at Sunday brunch. Thought they would have had more meat choices for lunch. Great breakfast food and eggs. The night before the food for room servive was Ok nothing special. Sunday brunch made up for it. Great fresh fruit on your table and smoothie.

New to me, Crossroads is inside the historic Carolina Inn. Nice vibe, filled with people before a concert at Memorial Hall. Parking is free if you have a reservation. The menu is interesting, although limited (but I believe that's due to their emphasis on locally-sourced and very fresh products). The portions are moderate to small. A hearty appetite would need to order an entree plus an appetizer. The petite rolls were just right and promptly refilled. This spot is not a great value unless you order lightly and limit drinks. But we were meeting old friends and as a quiet, casually elegant place to meet it was a good fit, not counting the pennies. Would return for drinks, dessert, light pretheater meal.

Excellent service and lovely veggie omelet for early breakfast with a colleague. Was not too crowded or noisy at 7:30am. managed to get there right before the Christmas decorations started to come down, so had extra treat to see all that.
