Great food and people. Loved the buffet, fried green tomatoes and tomato pie. Fried chicken, meat loaf and great salad bar were all on the buffet among other good things.

Building is beautiful and clean however that is about it. Service is slow to say the least and portions are not worth what you pay for them. All the food on the buffet taste as if it has been fried in the same oil, therefore has it all taste the same. This may have once been the place to eat... More

The food was bland. The host told us why the waitress wasn't able to get to our table in a timely fashion cause she had her hands in tomatoes. Forgot our salads. Never got a refill. Charged 21.34 for food that wasn't even worth giving to my dog.

Their buffet is good with 3 selections of meat, several veggies, and desert. My friend had their bar-b-que and enjoyed it. Locally owned and food made fresh.

A Friday night dinner for four found the restaurant to be friendly and efficient but the food quality to only be good not great. Food on buffet was not being refilled often enough or was allowed to sit too long and dry out, depending on popularity. Menu items delivered in good time and quality was acceptable. Took

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
