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.

very nice comfort food, tomato soup and grilled cheese, that was a far throw from childhood fare! soup was delicious, and the multiple cheeses in the sandwich were scrumptious. a bit more than either of us could eat, so we brought some home for lunch the next day. definitely recommend this place for food, ambiance, and attentive staff.

I wanted to experience Carolina Inn dining. I chose Sunday brunch. The food was good, not great. The hostess asked if a booth was okay and then left us standing unclear where we should sit. The brunch items were not hot. The food was tasty enough, but not anything I would return for. Service was not very attentive. I had to ask for a coffee refill. I was disappointed with the experience.

We traveled from Dallas to Raleigh in order to stay at the Carolina Inn and dine at the Crossroads restaurant. The hotel and dining room were exquisitely decorated for Christmas, and the ambiance in the dining room was exactly what we had expected. In addition, we were very pleased with the attentiveness and graciousness of our servers. The food was, of course, delightful, to say the least. Obviously, the experience was well worth the trip, and we will surely return to this wonderful and historic hotel.

The Sunday buffet had the perfect attributes of quality and quantity. The number of choices had been carefully thought out to create a generous number, but not at the expense of conflict in flavors, texture, eye-appeal. Every food was superb in itself and coordinated well with other choices. Each dessert was delicious. This was the best Sunday brunch buffet we have experienced in years at such a reasonable price. Staff was friendly and attentive without hovering.

We stayed at the Carolina Inn for 3 nights over the Thanksgiving weekend. On Friday we invited our son and his family to lunch at the restaurant. The service was perfect. No complaints. On the contrary. Our server Javier went above and beyond. However, the food was another mater. We were 4 adults and 2 toddlers ages 1 and 4. For one burger, a blt sandwich, 2 salmond salads, 2 cups of soup and two kids meals (mack n cheese and chick nuggets) we paid a few $$short of $160!but it wasn't just the money. The salads were so skimpy and sad looking, and the kids chick nuggets were so over cooked they didn’t eat them. Full disclosure... my son and his wife were perfectly happy and they intend to go back. My husband and I, on the other hand, will happily stay at the hotel but eat elsewhere..

This restaurant used to have the feeling of being in someone’s home...it fit the decor of the rest of the hotel. Wonderful menu, great service...lovely atmosphere.
Now you could be anywhere in a Hilton coffee shop.
It is as nameless and unattractive as any 5 entree hotel restaurant.
The staff generally try, but really need some training time.
The food, should be much better with such a limited ..burger and wrap... menu.
Say something nice...uhhh , good coffee.

Came into town for an event. This is a convenient and quality Sunday brunch will the value of central location and valet parking. While it’s a buffet the food was very good (poached eggs in braised short ribs) with starter fruit smoothie and freshly made cheese biscuits, et al. Obviously the atmosphere and history of The Carolina Inn makes it unique and interesting.

Despite a less than pleasant encounter with the valet, my husband and I had a lovely and spontaneous breakfast together on Monday. I was particularly grateful to Phil, the manager of the Carolina Inn, who helped to resolve a situation for us. The service in the restaurant has always been above and beyond and the servers and staff have always been lovely, helpful, and generous. My 3 stars for service has to do with the valet and not with the Crossroads Restaurant.

Havent been since renovation. Preferred former decor and food which was excellent. Can’t say the same with new. It wasn’t awful but nothing special. Trying too hard to be artisanal or trendy maybe. Few people there at 7 and none at 8:30 when we left. On a Wednesday
Feels like a slightly mod sports bar so might as well just make it one and go the burgers ‘american’ Food route. This fare won’t cut it at least for me and the friends I brought after having raved about it beforehand. They won’t be back either. Sorry. Still love the Inn tho

As always the food and service at Crossroads is excellent. I want to highlight a team member who is often overlooked: the hostess. Katrina is LOVELY --she has always made me feel like a VIP guest and this most recent visit was no exception. She and the other servers, who stopped to say hello at my table, were so welcoming and friendly that the new faculty member I was dining with really thought I was more important than I am . That's what the staff of this restaurant does: they make every guest feel like they are a Very Important Person! And Katrina is a great first ambassador for the restaurant.

So, you're obviously paying for the experience when you dine at the Carolina Inn, and pay you do. We stayed at the inn for a friend's wedding and had both one regular breakfast and one brunch. For the standard weekly breakfast, the prices aren't insane but the food is just ok. For the brunch, the quality of food is higher but the cost is outrageous--brunch for two with tax, tip and no alcohol was $77. I haven't paid that kind of money for breakfast foods since the Regis St. James in Paris. Again, I guess the point is the ambiance of a grande dame hotel, but otherwise I wouldn't recommend it except for a special occasion.

It had been a while since my last visit and the Crossroads Restaurant in the Carolina Inn has undergone a change ( I suspect) to modernize its look and feel . They have accomplished that objective but I feel they have lost the sophistication they once enjoyed. They are catering to a younger crowd who may not think vinyl placemats are a diminished look from actual table cloths. The menu is excellent and the food superb but the ambiance and mediocre service that I encountered suggest they have missed the point. The restaurant was very quiet on a Tuesday night and the service level was shameful for such an establishment. ( After a very long wait, I had to go looking for a server for the bill) . In all despite great food , the dining experience fell way below expectations.

Would recommend the restaurant for almost all of the items on the detail list above. Really a spiffy place with dedicated help. Also like the quick stop outside which one needs to use from time to time. Hoping you still do the fried green tomatoes...a friend wants these each time he comes. Am looking forward to hot buttered rum when playmakers does the Christmas story.
