Carrol's Creek is a very nice dining experience. Food, service, and views are all excellent. There were two groups of 8 or more in the dining room during our meal, exemplifying the "go-to" nature of the experience there. Typical of my poor self-control around food, I can tell you that the tuna tartar, the wedge salad (I opted for a Caesar dressing in lieu of the Blue Cheese), the baked brie, the scallop dinner, and the bread pudding are all wonderful. My dining partner was effusive about the beet salad and the small plate, rack of lamb. My bar selection was a well prepared, mixed drink and the wine list provided a wonderful red to go with dinner.

It's expensive so this Restaurant is for special occasions only. The food and service were excellent and I enjoyed my experience. I would return in the future.

I was disappointed that they no longer have the herb rolls or the mai tai. However, I was accommodated with the mai tai, so I was very impressed. I ended up getting the same entree as my previous visit, except with different sides (mashed potatoes and bok choy). The bok choy was bland but the potatoes were ok. That cream of crab soup is pretty amazing though.

What made this visit special was Jahlil. The service he provided was excellent; well above average. When I return, I’ll be sure to request his area.

I had didn’t realize that restaurant week was extended and had out of town family we took to CC Cafe on Sunday eve. I guess due to the popularity over the past week - the food wasn’t up to its normal standards. Our cream of crab soup was bland and our filets were tuff. Won’t be in a hurry to return for awhile.

We were there with friends to celebrate their birthdays. The restaurant was full, which, of course, makes it noisy but not uncomfortably so. I had asked for a quiet table and in spite of the crowd, we got one. The food was good but exceeded by the service. Our waiter, Zach, we think was the best we had in the 20 years we've been going to Carroll's Creek. He was friendly, professional, and brought his personality to work with him. We never had to look for him for anything -- he appeared at the table with perfect timing. That takes skill in a packed restaurant. The kitchen was pretty amazing too getting our food out promptly, especially in the face of the volume they were handling. These friends are very dear to us so we appreciate the staff at Carroll's Creek making our celebration so perfect.

Lunch time at the end of Restaurant Week on a lovely sunny, spring day. Our meals were excellent. Service too. The noise level was a little high, but that didn't hurt our overall excellent experience.

We have been to Carroll's Creek many times and will continue to do so. We have been there for lunch and dinner and never been disappointed. The water scenery is excellent which adds to the overall enjoyment of the meal. This time was a luncheon date during restaurant week. There were some excellent selections but we stayed with our usual seafood standbys. The waiter suggested some additional items to our meal that were excellent. Excellent service, food and scenery made the entire luncheon experience a great choice that we are looking forward to again.

I had the yellow beet salad to start. The only unappetizing item on the plate were the wedges of hot house tomatoes that tasted like cotton. It would have been better with grape tomatoes. The swordfish dinner was excellent.

A favorite restaurant. It was all also restaurant week. Four of us took advantage of its 3,-course menu. I did not. The two who ordered the meat course found it overdone but did not complain. I had the scallops, a specialty not on the restaurant week menu. They were delicious and properly cooked. Caesar salad, prepared stateside was also excellent.

The waiter didn't want to hear anything about our food choices or make any changes because of food allergies or being vegetarians and didn't clear explain the food choices on restaurant week lunch menu
Not at all happy with service and not worthy of the price to be paid for that kind of food.

Earlier we have to been there that time the experience was awesome

Our waiter was a tru professional and treated us well. The restaurant is always comfortable and not too noisy despite being rather full of Annapolitans taklng advantage of Restaurant Week.

E njoyed lunch at Carol Creek Restaurant on the water in Annapolis. It was Restaurant Week and fix priced lunch menu to choose from. I chose Cioppino and spouse chose Mahi Mahi over polenta. Both were excellent although I favored the cioppino with an abundance of seafood and a saffron flavored red sauce that was soooo good. I want to go again and order the same. For desert, we had both the donut bread pudding and the berry cobbler.
Plenty of parking is available and reservations are recommended. Service was excellent and the view spectacular. What a great price for the lunch at $15. Dinner is $35 and an expanded offering. Restaurant week is a great way to introduce you to the great quality of meals at Carol Creek.
