Carrol's Creek Cafe
Nice restaurant close to the yacht club in a quite position but walking distance to the center.On Sunday it was a bit crowded and noise. The service was professional and very speed.
We tried their special dish with crab like the cream soup and the crab cake, and they were delicious!
Friends in town.
Food was mediocre for the price.
Excellent service & food albeit the noise level.
Very nice experience. Great food and service.
Outstanding crab soup, followed by rockfish with lump crab meat. Our waitress, Taylor, was outstanding.
A wonderful setting and quality food and service to celebrate our 30 year anniversary. Plan to return and share the experience with friends.
We always enjoyed our evening at Carrol's Creek. We usually dine there twice a month. We were disappointed this time because two of our favorite dishes were removed from the menu.
We might not frequent Carrol's Creek as often in the future.
My wife and I are longtime (12+ years) Carroll’s Creek patrons! Everything was great, as usual, except for my NY strip steak! It was tough and full of gristle and very hard to cut with the sharp steak knife you provided! l discussed my displeasure with our server Zack, who was great, and he promised to bring our unhappiness to the attention of the chef! We have not received any feedback from Carroll’s Creek!
We have visited Carroll’s Creek many times and never had a poor experience. A beautiful setting, excellent food and service are to be expected. All was there this time except the special, halibut, seldom available and our favorite, was over cooked and too dry. Otherwise it would be five stars across the board.
Food was well prepared and service appropriate.
I had requested a table with a water view with my online reservation. We were seated two tables back from the window. We were politely moved when I requested a waterfront table. I had crab soup and beet salad. Both tasted good. The soup had little crab. We stayed a long time which seemed fine with the staff. I appreciated that. The people at the front desk made sure we had our parking tickets stamped. The view is breathtaking. We had a delightful time. # in party~2
The crab cakes were delicious, as usual and my wife enjoyed the scallops as well. I had the mussels but without the sambuca as I am not a fan of anise. The mussels were excellent anyway.
Only real complaint is our waiter, who was awesome, was stretch thin across too many customers. The party next to us was also very loud. Once they left, the atmosphere was much better.
Food is always good.
Very good meal. The service was prompt and excellent. The food choices were very good. We had the Cioppino and Linguine Shrimp. Both were excellent. The Cioppino had a light tomato broth that did not overwhelm the fish, as so many do; this was a highlight. The crab cake appetizers were sufficiently good for Annapolis.
Outstanding service and super friendly staff! The meal was delicious and well served with a professional presentation.
Great meal while dining on the docks in Annapolis. Tables were a bit cramped making it hard to maneuver to and from our table. Server was friendly and attentive.
Wonderful- we got a special birthday dessert and the other patrons sang. Delightful seafood!!
Took my daughter for dinner, was not as impressed this visit. Scallop appetizer was good, beef carpaccio was not very exciting. It actually looked like a few prices of thin roast beef on a plate - nothing exciting. Rockfish dinner was tasty, seafood ciapino was overcooked and disappointing. Surprisingly, the strip steak was very tasty. We got the captains special which added, soup (very rich/heavy) salad (too much dressing, almost dripping) and dessert (flourless chocolate cake- yum!!) service was ok, but because of a big party, we were unable to sit near the window (despite there being tables available in that room) we e were told they were not available... we had a much better visit back in August ...
We enjoyed lunch to celebrate a special birthday. Had a great table and the staff provided excellent and warm service. The only thing we were slightly disappointed with was with the crab soup--a specialty that had been highly rated, as noted on the menu--but we found it too heavy and lacking in flavor. Aside from that, over a range of dishes and courses, we were quite happy with the excellent quality.
Nice lunch with friends from out of town. Had a great table with water view. Food and service was excellent.
Quiet (less busy) night at the cafe. Excellent food. Felt very welcome. Acoustics are such that we couldn't help but be distracted by nearby conversations. But, all in all a great spot and we will look for occasions to go back.
As usual, Carrols Creek does not disappoint. Food was great and we had our favorite server, Suan. I got the halibut special and it was superb. Great evening with great friends at a great restaurant with an awesome waterfront view
Swordfish was mushy not firm!
I’ve eaten there many times before with good results. This time the New York strip was tough, lacking in taste and full of fat/grossed. I didn’t complain, but probably should have. My wife’s crab cake had too much filling and were only fair.
We eat out all over Annapolis and it will be a while before we give them another try.
Very specific request of no gluten. Got very sick from gluten.
We are very sorry that you had any illness from possible gluten in the Greek Salad that you had here. There are no ingredients in that item, that we are aware of, that contain gluten. I will check manufacturer labels for any issues and review staff procedures for reducing the possibility of cross-contamination. We take food allergies very seriously in the restaurant in accordance to our nut-free kitchen certification. Please let us know of any other item that you had so we may investigate.
Staff were great, waiter was attentive and had great recommendations. He even combined a lobster tail special they had for the night with a crab cake because my wife wanted to have both. Food was excellent and the fresh warm bread brought to the table was very good. The sauces that things were cooked in were really great as well. We will be back for more and try a new dish.
The tableside caesar salad was not very good - over seasoned - too much oil and mustard. The cream of crab soup which is a specialty had too much thickening but did have good crab chunks. Entrees were good.
We requested a window table for a birthday celebration and Carrol's Creek Cafe was able to provide one with a great view. The food was delicious, service was prompt and friendly. What a great way to celebrate a birthday with friends!
Restaurant was packed on a Saturday night for Naval Academy Homecoming. Service and food were excellent! Libations arrived quickly and food delivered hot. We tried three excellent small plates. Great job by all.
Service was impeccable and our dinners were delicious. We shared the beet salad and we each had a generous portion. The scallops and halibut were cooked to perfection. We shared ice cream to die for!
This was our anniversary dinner; and we took advantage of the Carrol’s Creek anniversary present of a free bottle of sparkling wine. Their chef’s dinner option is a fantastic deal, and the ability to make reservations is a great advantage.
Dinner was great as always. It is one our favorite Annapolis restaurants. This night it was very busy and had a very energetic noise level. We also got a slight rushed feeling.
I had requested a table by the window as it was our anniversary dinner. We were seated at a rather poor table and I was very disappointed. My husband went to speak with the hostess and when they looked at where we were seated they realized we had been seated at the wrong table. They then moved us to a nice table by the window. Our waiter was excellent as were the food runners. The food was absolutely amazing. I had the broiled scallops and my husband had the rockfish. This is not a place we afford to go to often but I would definitely like to go back. It was worth it!
We visit Carrol’s often and Mr. Butters is our favorite server. We have had others but he is the best!
Food and service was very good
The kitchen accommodated our guest who needed simple preparation. We were in the smaller room and it was very loud. Difficult to carry on a conversation.
Superb food and service provided by the kitchen and wait staff.
Food was outstanding
Great restaurant, great meal , as usual.
