Love the hostesses Alex and Nancy. Always charming and so attentive to your needs.
One of our favorite restaurants.
All staff was extremely nice, they were all willing to go above and beyond to give you a great experience. Food was amazing, would definitely recommend!
Great service and food!
They do not enforce social distancing whatsoever.
I went there Friday night it was okay. We decide to go there Saturday night again, and that’s when they allowed a group of 15 people in and all the sudden we are surrounded by other people in a very narrow walk way/ waiting area waiting for our table which took 10 to 15 mins after the reservation time.
I take this seriously because I did get the virus in June of 2020 and was in and out of ER 3 times and ended up staying in the hospital for 7 days and then I was confined to bed for a month with 3 weeks of fever. Then , you have this owner of the restaurant lying about enforcing social distancing when he wasn’t even there to witness it.
I have already told my friends who live across from this place to avoid at all cause.
I will also be filing a report with the city health department too.
We go there a few times a year for special occasions. What made this time a downer was the Waiter. Never asked if it was a special occasion (fine, it was my BD). We asked HIM if a certain cut of steak was now available, and he said YES. It was ordered and when it came, it wasn't what we asked!!! He goes what you wanted, did you see it on the menu? Dude, we asked you, Our Waiter, who works there, who should know what is being served!!!! So he goes, I'll make you your 2nd choice, can you please remove your potatoe so that you can have something to eat while your husband is eating his ribs. Really!!!! So we tell him return everything and get started on the 2nd plate. I don't eat until she has been served 15 minutes later. It's perfect for her, cold ribs now for me. A Waiter, who is serving you can really make or break the meal. This time the experience SUCKED.
Made a reservation so we didn’t have to wait. Drinks and food was delicious. Staff was very nice and the music was relaxing
I visit Carson’s at least once a week with friends. They never disappoint! Service, staff and food is always great!
My ribs were burnt and they didn’t have any rib tips.
Love Carson’s but first time using open table and I love this app even more
Food is wonderful as always. The server was also great!
Not sure why it was so cold in there but other than the temperature it was great
Great Valentine’s Day luncheon everything was great
Our experience was spoiled by the assumptions made by the staff. My 22yo girlfriend was refused a wine glass because she had left her ID i n her other coat back at the hotel.
Hi David, we are disappointed that you took the time to rate us 2 stars based on our staff following the law. You must understand that Carson's (and any restaurant) is subject to losing our liquor license, as well as enormous financial penalties on both the restaurant AND server if we sell alcohol to anyone we cannot verify is over the age of 21. It is company policy to ID anyone that looks under 40. I hope you would consider changing your review based on the things that are within our control.
Food was great!
With the ongoing Covid restrictions on dining, it is nice just to be able to find a restaurant that can accommodate in-house dining. Given that, the menu was somewhat limited with some entrées not being served. The service was good, the limited selection Of food was average to above average, and primarily BBQ and select cuts of pork beef and chicken
Food and service were outstanding. Fernando gave us exceptional service. Sitting by the fireplace was perfect on a cold winter evening.
Great Ribs. The Au Gratin potatoes are a must. I start with the cornbread, it's outstanding. Over all, excellent dinner and I will be back.
Great food. The salmon is tender, juicy, and an excellent portion. Wine prices seemed high to me.
Great experience. Good atmosphere. Nice service.
Exceptional Food, Venue and Service!! A++++ We will always come back!
The BBQ was Amazing. My first time visiting the establishment, i usually asks my waiter what they recommend and this time i was told everything was good. I must say, everything i tried from the brisket sliders to rib tips to the brownie dessert was outstanding. I am definitely looking to go back to this restaurant soon.
Everything was on point!
Everything and everyone was great from beginning to end. The service was excellent and the food was delicious.
A very nice family friendly environment. It’s my annual birthday dinner spot.
Love the rib & chicken combo!
Amazing service love this place. The server was amazing and treated us like family
I always get the slab of ribs, au grautin potatoes and the cole slaw. Never disappointed. The best ribs I have eaten and I have eaten ribs all over the country. Highly recommend.
Great service and they do a great job to keep things clean and sanitized.
Loved the service and food. I would describe it as a modern steakhouse with an upscale sports bar feel.
The food was to die for, my steak was perfectly cooked and seasoned. Also the cornbread was the best cornbread that I have ever had from a restuarant.
Great food! Would recommend, one of my grandmothers favorite restaurants.
The Food Was Amazing. There’s Never A Problem At Carson’s.
Tasty as usual. Great ambiance. Quality and friendly service
Carson's is consistently good food with excellent and friendly service.
Best brisket, Best pork chop, & BEST Cosmopolitan EVER
I was very pleased with my visit to Carson’s. I highly recommend anyone to come and dine there. I especially appreciate how all the staff was aware that it was my birthday and were very happy as if they knew me personally! I left very happy and full.
Great service, food and overall restaurant. I was so impressed
