Delicious!

The wine suggested to pair with the swordfish was delicious as was the entire meal. Megan was our server and she was polite, informative, and prompt. It was our first visit to this restaurant and we will definitely return. A very good experience all around.

We had very nice steaks for dinner and the manager had a wine pairing suggestion for us as well. We liked the pairing very much. The restaurant was not busy that night as there was a big wedding going on upstairs and the hotel itself was mostly hosting the wedding party. This made it so much better for us downstairs... More

The location itself as well as the restaurant exuded great ambiance. The service was excellent and the food wasn't bad either. I would like to have seen a ground sirloin of some kind on the menu since I find steak not only hard to chew but way, way, way overpriced. For breakfast the only thing I would like added is... More

We visited for dinner before a show at the Grand. We cut our timing a little close, but I told Sherry, our waitress, we were pressed for time and she was so fabulous about it! She moved things along quickly and got us out the door just in time. I wouldn't recommend rushing your visit here, the food and atmosphere... More

My wife and I were impressed by the quality of service and food at this in-house restaurant at Hotel Julien. Our experience was made even better by Megan, our excellent server.

My husband and I visited Caroline's for the first time while in Dubuque. We found the atmosphere inviting and a great environment for dinner for two. The food was excellent and the strawberry shortcake for dessert was amazing! Our server, Sherry, was charming, funny and provided excellent service. We will definitely visit Caroline's next time we are in the neighborhood.

We always eat here when we have a special with hotel Julien. We had a burger the last time and it was very tasty. The bartender was very attentive as we ate at the bar. We will always go back. Very nice for special events or fine dining experience.
