"Advice - take time to look thru their whole menu! Each item is homemade and is worth consideration! Yummy desserts but their generous portions rarely leave room for dessert."

Hit or Miss

I have written about Carol’s before and I am sad to say that my experiences there have not been improving. The last few times I have eaten there have been very disappointing. On one occasion I ordered the Au Gratin potatoes. They are only offered on Friday’s and Saturday’s, so I thought I was in for a treat. I don’t know what they did to them, but they were awful. The cheese wasn’t even melted.

Then the last time I went I ordered the Chili 5-Way. Now the chili itself is fine, but I did not realize, and it was not mentioned, that it was on pasta. Now if they had called it Cincinnati Chili 5-Way I would have expected pasta, but I did not. On top of surprising me with pasta in my chili, something I personally find repulsive, the pasta must have been very wet, because it was more like a bowl of chili-pasta soup. Icky.

I think it will be a long time before I return to Carol’s. I don’t think I will boycott them forever, but I need to put some time between me and these experiences.

OMG

A few weeks ago my significant other suggested Carol’s. I had never been there but she had. We were there for breakfast on a Saturday morning. The wait was about 20 minutes and I have to tell you. I’ve waited much longer for far less.
I am totally ruined for having breakfast anywhere else. The hashed browns are beyond description.
Nuff said?

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…

Tips
  • Been too long since you had a slice of homemade pie? Carol's is the real deal--rustic, chunky, and wrapped in buttery crust.
  • The phone goes unanswered at this busy restaurant, so don't be alarmed--it's open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Monday-Saturday.
  • Arrive before 6pm or after 8pm to avoid the nightly waiting list.
