    I usually eat there and it is usually good, this time it was nine of us, my steak did not come out with everyone’s food. I had to wait six minutes finally got it. It was undercooked waited another five minutes for the waitress to come by, sent it back waited another 9 minutes, the manager brought it she did not wait for me to cut into it, and it was so raw. It was blue inside then I had to wait another 5 to 10 minutes to flag down somebody to come take it back decided not to eat it. I just wanted it off my bill, my daughter Hair and her food as well. Apologize and gave me a $50 gift card and to be honest with you I would fix this review, but until then it’s a big no for me

    Good food and drinks at reasonable prices. Service was slow. Very noisy with music playing over loud conversation.

    We went for dinner on Friday night, had reservation for 8pm and got seated basically right away. Between placing order and waiting we had drinks out at 8:35 and food 8:50. Didn’t order any appetizers, just entrees, but we had to ask for bread in between since we were starving (bread is not included, we had to pay for it). Eventually the food and drinks were good overall, the place is nice but the kitchen was super slow, and we didn’t have a penny of discount for the wait. Maybe it was just an unlucky evening, it was the first time for us, but I believe for the price there are other options in town… still worth a try though.

    I ordered the 20oz black angus ribeye and it had little to no seasoning. All the other food was good. We attended Carson’s for my wife’s birthday and a complementary desert was not offered. Not sure if that’s a standard practice? Overall the experience was pretty good

    Carson’s gets better with each and every visit. We did Saturday brunch and it was delicious. Peach Bellinis and chicken and waffles, yum!

    Food and service were great as always. I had forgotten if you get the ribs as an appetizer, you only want a small salad for dinner. I brought all but 2 bites of my dinner home.

    Very good. Huge portions! I had the shrimp and sausage appetizer and couldn’t eat it all, plus it came with an 8 or 9 inch baguette. My husband got the breakfast chicken and cleaned his plate, our son got the bread pudding French toast and cleaned his plate, too! I thought it was very loud, not so loud that we couldn’t hear each other, but so loud that I noticed. Tony was our server and was very attentive.
