The Carolina Inn has been helping brides and grooms fulfill their most cherished wedding dreams for generations. Our magic begins with a setting of historic Southern charm: Colonial architecture, immaculate lawns, and stately oaks and magnolias. Inside the Inn, the atmosphere of warmth and grace is accented by antiques and fresh flowers. We have intimate parlors, secluded garden courtyards, and expansive ballrooms. The Old Well Room, with its evocative 1920's décor, is especially popular for wedding events.

We had excellent service at the bar and in the dining room. The cocktails and dinner were delicious. We used the valet parking. The men operating the valet service were charming.

We decided to go to Crossroads for a late Valentine's Day date and Birthday dinner on the Friday after Valentine's Day. The last time we ate there was over twenty years ago. We don't go out for dinner often (we are pretty good gourmet cooks ourselves) and we don't usually spend a lot when we do go out. We are so glad we chose to go this time! The Carolina Inn and Crossroads Restaurant are icons in Chapel Hill. They are the classy, impressive place to host a visiting dignitary or other out of town guests. The architecture and decorative arts of the building are world class.
We each ordered wine by the glass (Pinot Grigio and Malbec) and were very pleased with our choices. My wife had the Seared Scallops and I ordered the Braised Venison. Both entrees were prepared in unique and creative ways with flavor combinations that were pleasing and memorable.
The highlight of our dining experience was the service. Specifically our server, Zoubair, was the consummate waiter. He greeted us by name (I'm assuming he got it from our Open Table reservation), he asked about our preferences and whether we had a "special occasion". He was friendly but respectful of our personal space. When we asked him about his accent he was forthcoming in sharing some of his personal experiences and we exchanged stories about the Mediterranean and New York living. When we ordered one dessert to share we were pleasantly surprised that Zoubair added a second dessert with a candle and personalized Happy Birthday greeting on it. His friendliness and pleasant personality capped off the evening for us! Thank you Carolina Inn, Crossroads restaurant and Zoubair.

Visited Crossroads for Valentines Day. For 8:30 reservations the restaurant and bar was rather full. The bar area was really loud and we were pleased to sit in another area. Surprised how big the restaurant, bar and other areas were. We had a really nice female server. I apologize to forget her name. She was very pleasant and knowledgeable of the foods and wine. As an appetizer we had Calabash Shrimp and Lemon peels. We really enjoyed it. My wife had a Reisling and I had a local IPA. For dinner my wife had sea scallops and I had pork tenderloin. Both the scallops and tenderloin were cooked perfectly. My wife could have done without the nuts in the rice. The only other call out that was resolved quickly was the heat. The fireplace was going when we arrived and the restaurant was hot. You could see a few sweltering, including me. Someone caught on and a cool breeze soon following. The final piece of the night was our server giving my wife a rose and sincerely saying, “thank you for spending your Valentines Day with us”. We are glad we did.

I had a great experience on Valentine's day with my partner. Zoobair was great!

My fiance and I went to the Crossroads for an early Valentine's celebration. The food was great! Lots of options plus many classics. I thoroughly enjoyed the corn beef hash and the grits. You can never go wrong with a Belgian waffle. The only disappointment was the rib-eye. It looked appetizing but it was a bit tough to chew. The place is a bit pricey. I would say if you don't value dessert, you may need to get your moneys worth with multiple trips to the omelet station. Bring a big appetite and you will definitely be full by the end of the meal!

Great food and service. However, I miss the former more traditional decor and formality.

This was our second great meal at Crossroads. My only critique has to do with the TV in every room. Not everyone wants to be watching sports over the shoulder of their companion (or being the one watched past), and the restaurant should have at least one room where the TV is off during dinner.

Newly renovated. Bright, beautiful, calm ambiance. Food was top notch. Salmon, pork tenderloin melted in my mouth. Crazy but the salads were to die for. Really fresh ingredients. Can't wait to go back!

The wait staff fully understood our group of 5 was going to the ballet afterward, so service was efficient (not too fast and definitely not slow). All the food was delicious.

Went for lunch. Quite spacious. Very well lit during the day. The corn muffins were amazing. The cost was well worth the quality of food and service.

This was a belated Christmas present with tickets to a game. Best present ever! The dining experience was superb in every way.

I loved the clam chowder so much that I could have licked the bowl clean.

I cannot say enough positive about our dinner. The setting was relaxed and quiet. The service was impeccable--responsive without hovering. They were attentive to our every need/want. It was our anniversary and they delighted us with a special dessert. On top of all that the food was excellent. The scallops were some of the best I have ever had. Overall a wonderful experience.

They have redesigned the restaurant to appeal to the younger crowd. We were forced to sit on high stools which made it difficult to get on and off to get our food from the buffet. I miss the old décor and southern charm!

We ate here on a Carolina game day which of course makes a difference in business, noise level and such. Nevertheless we had a great time. We had our two kids and they had a blast as a “fancy” restaurant. They even had a 3 course meal menu for the kids - which they absolutely loved. Food was great, company was fun, service was wonderful. Menu is a little pricey but it’s what you get.

The Crossroads has long been one of our favorites places to eat. As a matter of fact, we make it a point to make reservations for a brunch or dinner each time we visit Raleigh. The food is always impeccably prepared, and everyone from the hostess to the wait staff treat you as a special guest. The ambiance is upscale but not pretentious. I would recommend a sport coat for the men.
