Contemporary American
Comfort is the theme at this relaxed, friendly restaurant, where the menu runs to familiar, home-style dishes with top-notch regional ingredients. Enjoy the welcoming atmosphere, which is colorful and attractive, yet understated with mahogany accents, and large flagstone columns in the main dining room. During the warm seasons, take advantage of the two open air dining areas surrounding the restaurant. There is also a separate space for large reservations or private parties. Relax and enjoy the Carlyle Bar dining experience. A specialty drink is the perfect way to prepare for dinner and a movie at the Goodrich Quality 16. We look forward to your visit.

My mom & I had a very relaxing dinner at Carlyle Grill. Good food & attentive service. They were very accommodating to my mother who wasn’t walking very well. The restaurant is spacious, which I appreciate during these Covid times.

We love the chicken fingers, they are crispy and juicy every time. The pasta Carlyle is a favorite go to as well as the Mac and cheese. We love their unsweetened ice tea or a favorite cocktail is a raspberry lemondrop. Jessica and Megan rock every time as our servers.

Marina was the worse server we have had at Carlyle Grill in many visits. She was not on her game.

1. It took her 15 minutes to get us water when we arrived. Someone should be walking around and giving you water when you arrive, or seeing about refills. We finally asked for a craft of water for the table. Refills of drinks were never asked. I felt like I was begging for a glass of wine.

2. My husbands fillet was cold when it was delivered. We waited and waited and she never came back to check how our meals were and if we needed anything. So he never ate his dinner.

3. She never returned to our table until dessert. She was nowhere to be found to get help.

We have been at this restaurant many times. This was absolutely the worst experience at Carlyle Grill. When we eat at this restaurant, it takes us at least 35 minutes to get there. A manager should’ve been walking around asking if everything was OK at each table. I have tried to call the restaurant, but they closed by the time I got home to talk to manager.

For great service and excellent comfort food the Carlyle is the place of choice! Our server, Megan, excels at making you feel part of the family with her sporting attitude and helpful suggestions. The calamari was declared 'exceptional' by a fellow diner. The Faroe island salmon, shrimp cakes, NY strip and Autumn pasta were all excellent. Carlyle does so many things right there is no room for complaint, or desert which we all regretted! Dine there but leave me and my friends a table as we are sure to return!

This visit was very disappointing. We have been to Carlyle many times- this time, the cook (I can't call him/her a "chef") could not figure out how to cook fish without making it as hard as a rock. Come on, salmon isn't hard, you just need to learn how to cook it. The "mixed vegetable" was a soggy mass of over-cooked zucchini. "Chicken tenders" were a batch of over-fried breading. I know they have a help wanted sign up- hopefully they can hire a real chef again.

The waitstaff, all the servers and greeters smiled all the time. Food was good, noise level was kinda precarious, however, considering Carlyle's open feature, it is understandable. Love eating there. I just wish they would have a more varied menu, and more variety of "todays specials".

From out of town, came here with family on a week night. Food was just meh. I ordered a steak and couldn’t get it down. It wasn’t seasoned or anything, and pretty dry, I had to send it back. My husband got the pecan crusted chicken and it was nothing to cheer about, and his mashed potatoes were bland. Honestly my Greek salad was the best thing we had. Service was just OK. I expected more with this place having such high ratings.

I’ve always had positive experiences at Carlyle Grill, and while this was still a good experience, it didn’t quite live up to expectations. For one, the crab cakes that I loved are no longer on the menu. Then the item I selected off the “lunch features” board wasn’t available. Given that we were there at 11:45am, I was a little baffled by this. It clearly wasn’t a case of running out of something, so why the heck was it on the features list?! I ended up going with Pasta Carlyle, which was good but not great—a little too bland. My lunch companions had positive things to say about the wild mushroom ravioli and the Caesar salad with shrimp.

This was not good. I ordered the whitefish which was mostly grease accompanied by fishy tasting fish. There were 2 prices of fish. One was inedible. I told the waitress and while I didn’t send it back I can’t believe I paid for it. The spinach was also dripping In like. I have a stomach ache.

Accidental gem! We are very rarely in the area and Weber’s is usually to “go to”. We passed this place on the way to our destination and got curious. Opentable was able to get us in and so glad we went! Food was fantastic; fresh (the vegetables still had a “crisp” after sauté!), paste Al dente, most tender chicken I’ve gotten from a restaurant in awhile, and the staff were above and beyond. We will definitely be back. My husband even said he’d find a reason to be back in the area to eat here again!
