Our meals were very good. The server was capable and attentive. It was so noisy that we couldn't hear the server nor could she hear us. The sound system was turned up very loud, playing country music at a high volume. We asked to have it lowered and the server agreed that it needed to be toned down but was successful only in a small volume reduction. No one visits this restaurant to listen to the music, even those in the bar aren't there for it. A background level of sound and choice of musical offering would have suited the dining experience that they seem to want to create with a fine menu and good service.

We were particularly impressed with Miss Bauer, the hostess who seated us. She was polished, poised and gave us a really nice welcome.

A pleasant-enough experience. Nothing to write home about. The food is just OK.

The main attraction of Carlyle Grill is its location across a parking lot from the Quality 16 multiplex, so it's very convenient if you're going to see a movie after the meal.

Two of us only had burgers, and one had ribs, which were very good, but one had blackened salmon that was tasty but dry, possibly overcooked. In general, though, it was a very pleasant first visit for us.

Went for restaurant week, though we had a reservation we waited for over 30 minutes until they had a table for us. That was the case with a lot of reservations. The best part of the meal was the bread. The food was just ok. I ordered spicy fettuccini and it lacked a sauce something that would pull the dish together. However, my husband’s steak was nicely done. The service was just ok not very friendly and did not pay much attention to the table. We had restaurant week menu, which we were ordering from and some items were not part of restaurant week after I tried to order them. I don’t think we will be returning any time soon.

Really enjoyed the soup and salad combination. Will try some different combinations next time. Unfortunately, the waitress took my salad away and did not return with a box. Maybe she thought I was done.

Good food. Good service. We were taking advantage of the community's "restaurant week" to try something new at a reasonable price.

I didn't appreciate the black Bentley convertible parked in the handicap spot (without a sticker). (My wife needed that spot.) However, that didn't surprise me. Regular people don't seem to be the clientele they want to attract. If you are in the mood for Chivas Regal 18 and have a platinum American Express (and a Bentley), this is the (regular) place for you.

Went for restaurant week. First issue, wrong size beer brought to the table. Told our wait person, so they would make a correction on our bill. Then ordered one of the choices for restaurant week. My potato was cool, broccoli was cold and tuff Steak was perfect. My husband's meal was fine. Our dessert was great. When our bill came, I let the server know the mistake about the beer again, we were also charged for salad and dessert, which was supposed to be included in the 3 course meal. The wait staff said they would take care of it. But did not remove the cost of the salad. Look at your bill. I won't be going back during restaurant week again. But will go during a slower time, like lunch.

A few friends decided to get together for a nice dinner on New Year's Eve. Reservation process was smooth and effortless through Open Table. At the restaurant, once we were seated, our waitress was slow to approach us (being New Year's Eve it was busy, but not unusually busy for a 7:30 dinner hour.) She took our drink order and returned to say that they were our of cranberries for a featured drink on the menu. Then once she started to take our order, she proceeded to tell us they were out of several more items featured on the menu( which we found odd since it was still relatively early in the evening.) Once served, our waitress proceeded to rush us through the rest of our meal, even though the restaurant, by this time, was starting to slow down from the dinner rush. The food was good and the atmosphere was nice, just wish our waitress didn't rush us and the kitchen prepared better for a bigger than normal dinner on the last night of the year.

Love this place. Terrific happy hour or the main dining room. Food is decent value and always tasty. On such a busy night, December 23rd, our server Trace was personable and very knowledgeable of the food and cocktails. We dine in both the bar and the restaurant often. Great place to bring family or meet friends.

We were in a minor car accident on the way to our reservation. I called and explained and they held our table until we arrived-30 minutes late. They then attended to us, without making us feel rushed, so we could make it to our movie on time. We will return!!

Great, quick service and quality food. On holidays, they have special menus with affordable pries and generous portions. On any other day, menu has everything you could want and for a reasonable price. Definitely would recommend to someone who isn't sure of what they want for dinner. Can be a nice date night place but also a casual dinner with friends/family.

This was the second Thanksgiving that we have chosen to have dinner at Carlyle's, and we will be back again next year! The turkey is outstanding; moist and juicy, and the prime rib was cooked perfectly! Dinner is served family style, and includes salad, mashed sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, green beans with carrots, stuffing, gravy, and choice of pecan or pumpkin pie (go with the pecan, or better yet, ask if they have the apple pie...it is ahhh-maaa-zing!). OH! And the amazing, crunchy, salty, fresh baked bread & butter (we went thru TWO baskets of those!). Now, I enjoyed all of the rest of the food, except the stuffing, which I found to be a little dry and a little too sweet, as opposed to the savory stuffing I grew up eating.
The service was wonderful, despite it being a holiday, and clearly this isn't our own little secret anymore, since it was FULL!
We will be back year after year, or until I decide to start cooking again :1)

We went for Thanksgiving, lots of folks but service was excellent. They took attention to those waiting, attentive waiter service, and the food was very good. The only down side is the noise level was hard to talk it was so loud, but could have been due to holiday on a less crowded time probably fine.
