Excellent food and service. Very friendly, warm atmosphere.
Food was not too impressive. I went to college at UNC. My fraternity was across the street. Wanted to just renew memories. The Inn is still very nice.
Pre wedding family dinner
My previous experience was so good here that I brought a friend who is new to the area to show off this lovely venue. We went for Sunday brunch. There was a huge crowd and the restaurant wasn't able to keep up with demand. Most buffet items were out and not quickly re-stocked. We waited for a good 20 minutes in a random crowd with our plates in hand to order an omelet. There weren't many other options. The poor man making the omelets was overwhelmed and horribly rushed. By the time we had our food, it was all cold. Overall, a terrible brunch experience. I know they can do better, so it was a shame. I won't go back again.
I love the Italian sandwich--the broccoli rabe is a brilliant touch.
An excellent choice for Sunday brunch. The buffet selection was great as were the cocktails.
Lunch tray is a wonderful variety, experience, and bargain.
Great Brunch! Pastries exceptional! Love coming here. Enjoy this preserved and beautiful Inn.
No ambience. Loud. Mediocre food. Less than great service. A really disappointing remodel.
Average meal, nice atmosphere . Service was fine.
The food and service from Crossroad were excellent, however the experience was ruined to a degree, by the air conditioning - which was far too cold. When we asked for it to be temperature to be turned up nothing happened and on asking for a second time the waiter brought 2 tiles - which were placed over the vents - this was ineffective. All three of my guests were chilled like champagne bottles. One our group now has a chest cold. I wonder why a request to turn up the temperature couldn't be acted upon. Please sort out the AC Carolina Inn and give your customers a warm welcome.
My husband and I both had the snapper special which was honestly on of the most delicious fish dinners we have every had! We also started with the fried shrimp with fried lemon slices. Delicious!!
The omelet station attendant was absent during the time my husband was visiting the buffet offerings. After waiting some time for the attendant's return, my husband mentioned his desire for an omelet to our server who was kind enough to bring his request to the kitchen for fulfillment.
Food is not wonderful but perfectly tasty. If you love the Carolina Inn, this is a fun place to go. We took my Mother, who went to Carolina decades ago - she LOVED it. Very pleasant.
Celebrated a birthday at Crossroads and it was out first time dining there. The food was just lovely, and the service was excellent as well. We had strip steak and scallops, and both were cooked perfectly. We are looking forward to going back and trying additonal menu items.
had the grilled halloumi salad with fried green tomatoes and it was delicious. perfect amount of food, not too much and artfully presented.
very pleasant and attentive staff
Very comfortable, upscale yet casual. Always special, for locals AND our out of town guests.
One of a kind restaurant that would please most. Only complaint is that vegetarian options were sparse and unimaginative
This used to be a destination a few years ago with a great chef and historic atmosphere. The chef left and the remodeling stinks. You feel like you are eating at a Hampton Inn. There is no reason to go to this restaurant, it is just there to serve ok food to the guests staying at the hotel. Some corporate guy probably got their financial numbers up, but they sold their soul.
Inventive food combinations, well presented. Service was outstanding.
Outstanding service and food, which can be characterized by the adjectives innovative, and creative. We had an exceptional experience.
The service was incredible. We enjoyed our visit immensely, and can not wait for an excuse to return.
Took a group of colleagues for dinner and had a wonderful experience. Enjoyed the mini chive and cheddar muffins pre-meal. The fried shrimp appetizer and scallop and saffron rice was amazing. Generous portions. Would definitely go again when in town.
One of the top ten restaurants in the whole Triangle area (Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill), and the only one I know of where brunch offers much more than variations on common breakfast dishes. And the desserts are fantastic--not cloyingly sweet, as so many American desserts are. They source their ingredients locally; I wish they would emphasize more organic produce (hard to do if you're trying to stay local), but at least their meats and fish are wild caught or from good local farms. For dinner, their fish is always beautifully executed.
One of the best meals I have had in a long time! Shrimp bisque... followed by bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin, which melted in my mouth. Responsive wait staff and chef. Prices reasonable for value. Highly recommended!
LOVE eating at crossroads. Food is consistently outstanding and portions are generous and reasonably priced. Our family is vegetarian and the menu has plenty of options for everyone. One of our favorite places to bring guests when they come to visit.
Food was very good. Went for Sunday brunch. The prices are a little steep, but not much worse than other good options in Chapel Hill. Definitely a great spot for a special occasion.
Wonderful meal- excellent service. The menu emphasized food in season. Lovely wine list and cocktails.
I was looking forward to having dinner here but the experience was just underwhelming. Slow service, mediocre food, and the menu choices just weren’t exciting. It wasn’t bad—- just not great.
Had a delicious Sunday brunch at Crossroads as a birthday celebration. Beautiful setting, great service (in the restaurant and all over the hotel), and delicious food. The kids loved it just as much as the adults. Definitely not a cheap option, but worth the splurge every once in a while-- especially for a special occasion. Highly recommend.
A wonderful meal, drink and atmosphere as always.
The shrimp appetizer with fried lemon was so good, and who knew fried lemon would taste so good! The chicken with whipped potatoes and black truffle was very good, I’m not usually one to order chicken when there are so many great options, but I couldn’t pass up the black truffle potatoes.
Far too noisy for an enjoyable lunch experience, seems as everyone is shouting
When we first entered, we had to walk through the bar area, where it was very loud! I was worried that we would be listening to that during our meal. We had a 7:30 reservation and after about 20 minutes, the noise was not so loud as folks cleared out of the bar. The meal was wonderful. We had great appetizer, excellent steak with cartelized onions, and a wonderful dessert coffee. The service was fabulous and I would like to visit there again.
Chef Brandon Sharp has made Crossroads my favorite restaurant in Chapel Hill. He interprets local and traditional dishes through the lens of a variety of cuisines to create a unique culinary experience.
Good food, a bit overpriced. Eleven bucks for a Manhattan and $25 for 4 scallops......a bit over the top.
I had been to Crossroads for dinner in the past, but never for lunch. It was a great experience. My friends and I were treated so nicely by our server, the food was great, desserts great, and we stayed for three and a half hours without getting evicted!!
Will try to come again soon. Thanks, Eva
The complimentary amuse-gueule biscuits and the Calabash Shrimp and fried lemons were excellent appetizers and the pappardelle a la chasseur was perfection. The restaurant is quiet with many seating options and the service is most attentive. Highly recommend !
Another good meal at the Carolina Inn but this time I wanted to highlight the customer service of the chef himself. I emailed ahead because the guest I was having lunch with told me she has a fructose allergy. I emailed the Crossroads restaurant to see if this was going to be a problem and/or to see if they could accommodate my guest, and I received a reply the same day from the chef. It's these details that make me appreciate Crossroads. And FYI if anyone has a fructose allergy they can totally accommodate you!
While some of the main foods were very good (smoked salmon, omelette bar), the buffet lacked anything special typically seen in a $30 brunch and some foods were outright awful to the taste (the "flourless chocolate torte" tasted only of overpowering black licorice and no one in my party was able to finish a single dessert due to them being "worse than box-cake quality"). The service, however, was certainty the worst aspect of this brunch. At about two servers per table, one would expect attentive service but our biscuits (which should have come at the beginning of the meal) got to us 30 minutes in, our server rolled his eyes when we asked for coffee and we ended up having to go up to the bar and ask for everything we needed after that (to pay the bill, etc.). Worse still, the staff was shutting down the buffet the entire meal (despite our 1:00 reservation) and it was terribly loud (buckets being washed out, plates clanging) throughout the whole meal. Overall, please stay away from this place, there are better brunches for far less money.
