Good Food, poor service. I have been here many times. The food has always been good, but the service, except for a few waitresses, is VERY SLOW. Desserts are usually pretty good, though they do fall below par once in awhile. I

My teenage daughter and I frequent Carol's about every 4-6 weeks either for dinner or just a late afternoon piece of amazing desert. From the hot turkey open face sandwich to the salads the food is amazingly yummy. And if you go, you

I had some friends from Arizona in town and had read some reviews for Carol's which seemed to be good. Our experience at this "hometown" restaurant was horrid... We'll never go back again. The service was absolutely unacceptable. Not

Whenever I have family come into town, I proudly take them to Carol's for the best homemade food ever. And they are never disappointed. I love the the Thai Peanut Chicken wrap. The tomato basil soup sets the standard for all others for me.

The food is just so good! I cant even praise the cooking enough. You can close your eyes and point to something on the menu and be guaranteed to enjoy an excellent meal. As an added bonus, all the meat offered is free range. As an

Super friendly staff here! The food is really good, if you're looking for a home cooked type of meal. There is a really cute little gift shop attached to the restaurant as well!

I went to Carol's for the first time tonight, based on an outstanding review from my parents.

From the unique drink, through the dessert, there was not a single flaw with the meal or the service.

The salads come with home made dressings, which are outstanding. I had the pork chop with homemade stuffing, au gratin potatoes and veggies that I actually enjoyed eating. The pork chop was perfectly seasoned and juicy. I could have had an entire plate of the homemade stuffing, it was the best I have ever tasted!

All of the desserts looked so delicious, I couldn't resist taking a slice of strawberry pie home. I was so full from dinner, I just didn't have any room left for dessert!

The ambiance was perfect, small enough we were able to carry on a great conversation, all while enjoying great singing from a very nice gentleman.

The service was perfect as well. Not too fast or intrusive.

It's been a very long time in which I left a restaurant feeling like I had an outstanding meal, but Carol's fit the bill to a T!

You will never be disappointed with this restaurant. Carol offers home-cooked meals, changes her specials often and many recipes are her own from scratch. The menu has a great variety, portions are generous and the service is friendly and efficient. They will even make your specialty coffee in a "To Go" cup so you can take it with you! Medium rice range. Excect to spend $15-20 per person with tip and tax.

This place has nice decor, that is about all it has going for it. The staff are rude, take their sweet time (2 1/2 hours to get a meal). The gift shop is fair, but you cannot use your check card for purchases under $10. Every time I have eaten here I have had bones in my hot turkey sandwich. Not small bones, but part of the turkey's spine, a leg bone and 1/4 set of ribs. When I brought it to their attention, they offered to bring out a new one. They would not take it off the bill and there was no appology whatsoever. So if you are bringing children or elderly people here, be aware that there will possibly be bones in your meal.

I have had the salads here as well, they tasted pretty good, but I found gnats and flies in my salad and I got really sick from it twice.

I would not recommend this place to my worst enemy.

Emphasis on homestyle cookin served with a medium scale restaurant flair. The service was attentive (altho a hostess to seat was unavailable when we arrived) table seating seemed abundant.
This reminded me somehwat of Pannekoken Huis, Perkins but with more homestyle flair in the food.
Don't get me wrong though, the presentation was better than those restaurants mentioned as the attention to detail and appearance of the food was noted by the chef/cook/staff. The place was a bit cold for my liking, (we went in Winter) They have a nice fireplace, but it was not lit. The decor is pleasant and is suited to most occasions.

Foodwise: ordered a sampler appetizer, the tomato basil soup and a hot turkey sandwich smothered w/gravy. Everything we ordered was served hot, and tasted very good if not great.
The wraps or deep fried chicken and black bean tortillas were very flavorful. Onion rings were crisp.
Chicken fingers were real white meat, semed like strips of breast battered in the same batter as the onion rings. The sauces that accompanied were very tasty and with attention again being paid to detail.
there was a chipotle ranch? honey mustard, and a pecan flavored sauce mixed with what liked similar to a pesto type of base.

Tomato Basil soup was thick n chunky like a spaghetti sauce and tasted like it could be a good base for that also. Lots of basil and flavor.

The turkey sandwich was served on rather thick slabs of white bread. Mashed potatoes & dressing also graced as sides. There was a good deal on meat on the sandwich which cost 10.00 and it was mixed in which and dark but it seemed to me there was probably more dark than I would like. All in all, it was very good. The coffee, latte, etc tasted very good also.

Cons: It struck me as being rather cold temp wise. I wore my coat periodically throughout the meal.

Have been to Carol's several times. The food is always fresh, homemade, best salad's (ranch dressing, croutons around). The food is definitly not low fat... but if your in the mood for some good turn of the century cooking... homemade jelly and bread. Best Sweedish meatballs around.. Give it a try... the deserts are amazing..! Worth the wait and very reasonible prices. would highly recommend! :)

My wife practically had tears in her eyes when we saw that a new non-smoking restaurant was opening. Blaine is devoid of good food.
On our first visit we looked over the menu and saw several items which looked great! None of which were available that day, and were subsequently crossed off the menu. Then we ordered an salad with baby greens, only to be served, without warning, iceburg lettuce. On our last visit, this morning, we planned on eating breakfast, but were told at 10:45 that they were now on the lunch menu and we could not have breakfast. I'm on a low carb diet and wanted eggs and bacon. Instead I had a marginal steak. What bothered me was that they served breakfast to others after they said no to us. Not once during our three, less-than-perfect meals, did the owner come out and talk to us.
