Whenever I travel to Chicago I will definitely make plans to have dinner at Carson’s. Simply splendid!
Really appreciate the regular lunch menu on a Saturday rather than being forced into a brunch menu like so many other venues.
Food was terrible. Expensive and no flavor. Too many good reswtaurants in Chicago to eat here. Overpriced
Great overall experience! First time at their new location & our server, Betsy, did a great job taking care of us. 👍😊
Ribs were delicious as always. The ambience is very cool. Service was excellent. My only issue was the drinks. The pour was probably the among the weakest in Chicago. This is my first visit to the new location. The bar was very friendly before at the previous address. This is Chicago and Carson’s is known for steak, ribs and chicken- give a generous pour!
Celebrating my Grandson’s Birthday. It was during lunch and everyone was very nice and great service.
This is an absolute must if you are visiting Chicago and you are looking for authentic Chicago cuisine. Carson's has been around for decades and hasn't varied from their roots beyond enhancing their menu with a few new items to complement their beloved staples. You won't find better ribs, steaks, crab cakes, or chicken anywhere. The best cole slaw I've ever had AND basically any type of potatoes who would want. My favorite are the au gratin which are tender & cheesy and baked in their own individual serving dish. Nice drink menu and bar area, comfy booths & a water view overlooking Odgen Slip. If you don't have room for dessert consider taking it "to go" for later. They are outstanding as well. I can't wait to return....
We ordered their Mediterranean pork chops and they were the best we have ever eaten! Great combo of EVOO and seasonings. Highly recommend them.
Great location, friendly service and outstanding ribs and au gratin potatoes.
The ambiance was wonderful. The booths felt very private without being stuffy or uptight. My only complaint was that my ribs were very dry. The steak was delicious though!
Still the best ribs in Chicago. Friendly atmosphere, excellent sides and very attentive staff. Visiting from St Louis, had not been there in ten years, very happy to find my food memories were fulfilled.
What an amazing place. Perfect steak, beautiful ribs and those crab cakes!!! Rounded out with excellent service and great venue. Thoroughly recommended!
You always receive a good quality meal at Carson’s. My must stop when in Chicago.
We went to Carson's for a 2-person business meal at 5:30 PM. The food was good (but not outstanding), and the service was good. As the restaurant became more crowded, it was a little difficult to hear.
BBQ is too over sauced. It would be great if sauce was served on the side
Hi Eric. Feel free to request with your waiter your bbq sauce on the side and or your ribs served dry anytime. Plenty of customers do it that way and we are happy to accommodate our guests preferences. Thank you for dining with us and we hope to see you again to accommodate any special requests you may have. It is our pleasure.
Another successful birthday at Carson’s! The ribs ARE THE BEST. Definite Chicago jewel.
Great place to celebrate our anniversary. Staff was very attentive.
Little family party for my birthday,everything was great! I am a life-long fan of the old Carsons on Ohio and this was my first time here to this new location -will be back for sure!!!
One of our best dining experience near navy pier! The carb cake and rib are delicious. Love the taste of the mushroom. The portion is very generous and the price is reasonable. But nothing can beat their tiramisu. We finish it in 5 minutes! Will be back to try the other desserts!
Excellent ribs in an upscale environment
Best of the best local landmark restaurants. Carson’s has always delivered an exceptional BBQ Dining experience.
The restaurant description mentioned great views....all I saw were leaves. I'm not sure where the tables were for great views. I asked for a table with a view and like I said, trees.... The baby back ribs are ok, I don't like a lot of sauce and the ribs had plenty of sauce. The twice baked potato was ok, not piping hot, just barely hot. The tiramisu was pretty good. The cornbread is served like a pie and very rich. It was good, just make sure you have plenty of people to share it with.
Hi Michelle. I researched your reservation and found you did not request a window view or any view for that matter. I see you were sat at a booth in our river room across from our large picture windows with a view of Ogden Slip (which all our other customers love) since other tables on the window were taken when you arrived and you put in a request at the desk at that time. In the future, please feel free to let your server know your prefer your ribs dry next time. We can accommodate that also.
What a great Sunday night at the bar! Kevin (I believe) was very helpful in assisting us with our order and he was SPOT on! The pork chops were outstanding!
Love the newer location and he food is always fantastic.
Food was delicious but we were rushed through ordering and meal. No time to enjoy a drink before eating, dinner delivered while we were still eating salad, all food was on table at same time, bread came out with dinner rather than with salad. Server was very nice but overly attentive adding to being rushed. Floor manager stepped in to also clear table along with busboy etc. No need for this especially because restaurant not that busy. Three course meal and cocktails in one hour fifteen minutes. Not good for a $150 meal.
Everything was very good the atmosphere, the food and environment, however, our server was very indifferent not engaged,sort of going thru the motion. It made us very uncomfortable as if it was us that made him this way. It ruined that part of the evening for us.
Don't know if we will be back.
The meal was great, the service was even better!! Chay is very friendly, engaging and wonderful to speak to. We enjoyed our time. Thanks, Chay!
The gentleman that waited on us was phenomenal! We'll make this date night destination number 1.
Carson's has the Best TIRAMISU ! The atmosphere is great and the food was excellent.
Basic restaurant - if this is famous BBQ I want to know why? nothing special - ALSO make a rez - even if the place is empty they will not give you a table - I went there several times while I was in Chicago, I was working nearby and it was convenient - luckily after my first time going - I learned and would make a reservation on Open Table on my walk over to Carson's and did not have a problem.
Too funny. This customer states in their review they come to our restaurant over and over again. WE know EXACTLY why they kept coming back.... because our restaurant is AWESOME and serves delicious barbecue and steaks. They showed up night after night and even made reservations to guarantee a seat Sat night 9/14/19. Believe it folks! Carson’s Prime Steaks and Famous Barbecue is FABULOUS. Come see for yourselves! Reservations are accepted. It’s our pleasure to even serve crabby people.
I absolutely love Carson's Ribs. The new location is so open and bright and the staff is amazing!!
One of our favorites for Ribs. Our server was wonderful and so was the food. Thanks for another great meal Carson's.
First time in Chicago and at Carson's. The food was delicious and full of flavor. I had steak and cake. The steak filet was juicy and tender. The cake had a nice crunch followed by juicy crab with a hint of some spices, maybe jalapeños 🤔 And, the cole slaw was definitely the BEST I've ever had. I now know why it's an award winning cole slaw. Ambiance and decor was inviting. I will be back and definitely reccomend it 😁
The restaurant was one of the best recommendations I've ever received!
Food was fabulous. Salmon cooked perfect. Waitress, Helena was great. Drink, sidecar was terrific.
Took customers to lunch and we had a great meal in very nice area looking out at water.
The best meal I’ve had in a long time. You have to get the ribs
Carson's was beyond our expectations. Great Chicago steak and prime rib at a very reasonable price.
This is not my first time eating at Carson"s and it wont be my last. The food is always good and the prices are fair. I have paid more at other restaurants and got less. I always take something home from Carson's. The ambiance is nice. It can be a classy or party type atmosphere depending on when you go and what events are happening. You can sit at the bar or sit at a table or booth. Very nice view of the lake. Parking is quite nice........$10 parking directly across the street for 3 hours. No need to drive around searching for a parking space or an expensive parking garage. If you go early enough Navy Pier is just steps away. The only downside is that the booths are very tight for someone with a belly like myself....lol!
