The food was great, but when we were seated we ordered I drinks and I placed the order for my grandsons food. We looked over the menu a few minutes then decided to eat the buffet. But we were finished eating nearly and his food, a child's meal was still not to him. We asked about and was told... read more

My Fiancé and I visited Carliles on April 26, 2015. This was our second visit to Carliles ever. Our first trip was amazing, we had great service as well as food. Our second trip is another story. We were seated around 11:50-something. Our waitress, Chance, immediately showed up to receive our drink orders. She then made our drinks and brought... More

Looking for a good place for an early evening meal I spotted this restaurant on Tripadvisor. Arriving for an early supper we were looking over the menu when I noticed they offered a buffet. Although a tad early we were informed it was ready and available. So, passing up the frog legs and other tasty sounding items on the menu... More

Carliles has a pretty nice looking buffet and salad bar but we opted for a hickory tater and wife had a BBQ salad. We also had the tomato pie as an appetizer. Our first trip but the wait staff did a great job and super friendly. There was a large private gathering at the time yet the extra attention didn't... More

We stopped in before checking into our hotel which was just a short distance away. The service was splendid. The tomato pie was to die for. Loved it. A must try. Their tomato pie we discovered was award winning. Highly recommended. On Sunday the restaurant was full; a good testament.

Been to Carlile's many times and have had mixed experiences. Sometimes we have really enjoyed the food and sometimes not so much. This has been both with the buffet and menu items. The service and staff are always friendly and very good. The prices are very reasonable.

I live in the area and have visited Carlile's several time (thinking the food would get better) and the food not very good. The staff is very nice but he dining room is cold and very loud. The up side is they have a private room that can be reserved for private parties.

Carlile's has been around in Scottsboro for many years. The second generation now run it. If you like good southern cooking this is the place to go. Each evening they have a dinner buffet that features three meats and veggies. The salad bar is well stocked and excellent. Their Sunday Buffet is a must. The current owners won best in... More

We had the buffet and every thing was very good. Service was good. Prices were very reasonable. We have had friends eat here and got mixed reviews and trip advisor also had mixed reviews so we didn't know what to expect. We enjoyed the food, which was good, and a salad bar with a lot of choices. Everyone was real... More
