The food was very good. A nice selection of sandwiches, scones and sweets.
Service was slow. We sat there for 30 minutes with just water.
When tea arrives with food, mine was lukewarm.
Would’ve been nice to have tea from the beginning to enjoy the experience more.

We went for Sunday brunch, and the food was delicious! The buffet was kept full and hot the entire time we were there (about an hour). Our server was very attentive and kept our drinks filled. I don’t often give rave reviews for restaurants, but we will be back to Crossroads.

No welcome greeting or smile at the hostess stand, all of us got two menus, one for dinner and another for drinks, one of us got two drink menus. Wrong drink order how one person, forgot about another person. No smiles during the service. When main dish was brought to table, appetizer/bread plate was in front of me. Rather than using her hand to take the plate away or move to the side, she punches the dish with the main dish plate to make space for it😱. Never seen anyone do that at the restaurant. I ordered salmon because I wanted to try caramelized cauliflower comes with it. Salmon was moist and nice, but the cauliflower that I was looking forward to taste was more like burnt beyond caramelized, charred and bitter😮. Fried shrimp was good and beef dish was also nice.
There was no “thank you” or “how is everything?” By our waitress. Though their manager stopped earlier before the meal to check on us.
Staff were young and under trained for this type of restaurant. Well-trained staff will elevate the reputation of this restaurant.

Excellent meal at Crossroads at the Carolina Inn. Really enjoyed the starters of pimento cheese/flatbread crackers, homemade chips and dip, and family favorite fried shrimp and lemons. Dinner entrees were also delicious- with a few of us dining from items on the bar menu (burgers, pulled pork sandwich) and a few from the dinner menu (salmon, shrimp). Altogether, another wonderful family get-together at a charming bar and restaurant.

The brunch was pretty sparse for the price and at our seating anyway (11:30) was largely picked over. There was no sliced bread or meat and a few triangles of cooling waffle. No berries. No bagels.

The place was lovely and tea was delicious. Service was great. In a grand, upscale location as the Carolina Inn I did expect the servers to not be dressed casually in jeans or at least have more elegant tops. It took away from the experience although I would definitely return.

No host appeared for a long time. We finally had to seat ourselves after we found the rest of our group.
Two of the 4 main courses were brought to the table very shortly after the starters were served and had to be sent back. Second round of drinks arrived after the mains were finished. Our waitress was friendly and did her best. She was not at fault — it’s a management issue. Also the advance credit card requirement for a restaurant that shouldn’t be considered a “hot ticket” was annoying.

We had a 4-top for three people to discuss business. Service was mediocre to good and food was good. However, they were not busy at lunch and I expected more attentive service given the venue & price point. I suspect there is a mild hangover post-COVID. Overall, the restaurant is lovely and it’s located in a gorgeous hotel setting. A nice experience for tourists in Chapel Hill and for business casual meals.

They don’t have full menu running at lunch. The menu here has always been so interesting. Looking forward to full menu and interesting things to try. They previously had a $20 sampler. Salad , bread, main course and desert. My wife loves shrimp and grits. I live fried green tomatoes not being served.
