    Our new favorite restaurant. Excellent food. Excellent service. Quiet and Quaint. Bartender likes to experiment. Will make anything your want...or even something you didn't know you wanted! Constantly rotting menu which is rare these days.

    Considering the higher price being charged for the meal, you need to include rolls of some sort and a salad. Table did not have flowers or decorations . Since many people most likely used the meal as a Valentines celebration, a little effort spent to decorate or to make the room a little more attractive for the day other then a couple heart stickers stuck on the picture would have been appreciated.

    We were very pleased with the appearance of restoration of the house to a restaurant. The presentation and service of the bottle of wine was very professional. The music that was playing, we thought was inappropriate for a fine dining restaurant, more appropriate for a discotheque. I ordered a Caesar salad and asked for the anchovies on the side I was told they had no anchovies. How can you make a true Caesar salad without anchovies? Three at our table had the salmon dish that was supposed to be served with wild rice and although the salmon was very tasty it wasn’t wild rice. I had the duck breast that was very tough and fatty. All in all we all felt our overall experience was very overpriced and disappointing.

    Very nice surprise in Denton. Restaurant is situated is an old house with a very appealing entrance. Service was attentive and not intrusive. I have some fairly complex allergy issues and the entire team was prepared for me as I had called ahead. Would recommend as an upscale dinner occasion as it’s certainly on par with the usual Easton and St. Michaels restaurants.

    Caroline's has a dish for just about every flavor. I have had at least 4 and all were fantastic. Entree always flavorful and fresh and the greens/salads taste like they were picked that day. Wait staff are very polite and attentive but not hanging over you. Can't say enough good things about this restaurant. They live up to every award they win....and there have been quite a few.

    A charming and comfortable ambience, with a creative menu that we didn't expect to find locally. Service was excellent and the food was prepared perfectly, with wonderful taste and presentation. The Benedict was wonderfully flavored and different from traditional Benedict. Only order the Full English if you desire a hearty breakfast or are willing to take some home. The scrapple and bacon were some of the best ever, and the added mushrooms, along with the non-traditional baked beans/corn mixture was unexpectedly delicious! Finally, the coffee was full-flavored and unlimited, topping off a wonderful brunch experience that exceeded our expectations! We hope to return soon!

    I am sorry to say we were not impressed. We had been excitedly anticipating our visit but left very disappointed. Food was not well cooked. Eggshell found in the dish, eggs over done and brown, no sweet potatoes in the hash. Staff was ok but not overly helpful or friendly. Not worth the price.

    A cute little brunch stop while traveling through Denton, MD. Really loved the cheesy baked grits and shakshuka. The duck fat smashed potatoes could use some seasoning, and the cinnamon roll was a little under baked, but loved the unique items on the menu, and would recommend stopping if you're passing through the area.

    Caroline’s is a must-visit spot for foodies on the shore. Their chef is phenomenal and his food is inventive and delicious. We’ve been for both dinner and brunch and have always had a fabulous experience. I love that they use fresh seasonal produce and products from local vendors. Just go - you won’t be disappointed!
