Overrated for food; underrated for the view!

This restaurant is beautiful, the service was excellent, but the food....just OK...or less than OK for one entree. The fish was fresh and well prepared but rather bland, not "OMG this is amazing" which I expect at that price point. The pasta with shrimp...well the shrimp had that weird iodine... read more

This is an Annapolis gem that offers fabulous waterfront dining in a sophisticated, but not stuffy, atmosphere. The food is always topnotch, but it is a little pricey. For locals, Carrol's Creek is often chosen as a special events venue. However, during the summer, it's a great anytime restaurant, especially if you are able to sit on the back deck... More

I've attended many brunches, a number of birthday celebrations, lunches and dinners here and bring out of town guest here often. It is easy to get to, good parking, the view of Annapolis is lovely and the food is delicious.

I have dined here over the past 16 years for special occasions and Carrol's Creek never disappoints! The menu is fresh and up to date with some of the best seafood in the State of MD! The view here is superb and the staff is top notch when it comes to service. This is a true gem for our area.

Had Valentines' Day dinner there during snow storm. Great view, excellent service, reasonable prices, and 2 couples got engaged at tables in our seating area. All around great place. We both had the herb encrusted rockfish - perfectly prepared.

Nice atmosphere on the water. They have great appetizers, not the ordinary. Upper scale dining. One of my favorites. Cost is between $$$-$$$$

Carrol's Creek has been an Annapolis institution for decades. Unlike most Annapolis institutions, it has not gone "overboard" into boating and fishing decor, nor has it let its standards drop to cater to the tourist crowd. Carrol's Creek has always provided exceptional food and service at a fair price. It is not cheap, but it is reasonable for the high... More

Had a great family dinner here. Lovely location and nice menu for Valentine's Day. Wine menu was not extensive but gave lots of good choices. Halibut dish with mussels and polenta was fabulous as was the lamb chop appetizer. We had a reservation and were seated right away. Service was great. Would eat here again and would love to come...

Whether it's the food or the view, you can't go wrong here. Always exceeds my expectations. Have dined here with family and friends for at least 20 years.
