Great palce to eat

After reading reviews, we decided to try Carlile's and it was very good. I had the BLT with fried green tomato instead of the usual tomato and a side of onion rings. The sandwich was good but the onion rings were "to die for". My husband got the ribeye and couldn't eat it all!! I had to have a... read more

We have tried Carlie's several times over the past few years. Like their new location. Wait staff is always friendly . Tea has always been good. This last time we where here was a Friday evening at 4:45om. We where doing the buffett. Prices was reasonable. Buffett was a disapointment. Food seemed to be very greasy and not fresh .... More

The service was awful. And the food worse, hamburger steak was dry and no taste. French fries tasted like they were heated up.

The staff at this restaurant was very friendly and inviting. It took forever to get our food, but was nice conversation. The food was ok, you do get a large amount of food and was a little pricy. I always enjoy supporting small local businesses so I would go back and maybe try a different dish.

I've eaten at Carlisles several times. I have only eaten off of the buffet, so I can't rate what comes from the kitchen. The buffet is okay at best. I left full each time, so I got my money's worth, but nothing was fantastic. The salad was barely okay. To be fair, I've only been there in the late evenings,... More

I stopped in for a solo dinner while in the area and it was not crowded at all. The hostess was very friendly. The waitress was okay. I ordered the hamburger steak with onions and peppers and added 6 grilled shrimp. I also ordered the baked potato and a salad. She forgot my salad and brought it out after my... More

I really wanted to like this restaurant because of country food and ratings. We arrived at 1:45 on Sunday. We had a party of 11. It took a while to us seated. We had the buffet and the children ordered off the children's menu. We had finished eating our buffet meals before the children were served. The vegetables were OK... More

We was too late for the buffet, so we ordered off menu. They have a lot of different choices. I had gotten the BBQ plate. It was really good. Next time I will go with the larger size though. Salad bar was very good as well. We had a large group and the waitress did very well in taking care... 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

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 there... More
