Our party of four had a great meal. Liked the fact that everything was a little different, not the same ole same ole. Matt was a great server and displayed a great sense of humor. Will be back again.

Was in Dubuque for business and this place was recommended. Just a short walk from my hotel, I arrived about an hour before closing and was greeted by the manager. He was very pleasant and friendly. My server, Carrie, was great. She was very nice and was always on top of drink refills and never made me feel rushed. I... More

Many hotels have restaurants known for hiking prices... Caroline's doesn't, and with the quality of the food and service, they could!! One of the best omelets I have ever had! Stop to look at the famous hotel plate collection on their walls. Great place!!!

Ate there for Sunday breakfast buffet. The choices were few, the eggs were cold and tasted like they were processed. Ran out of a few of the items and it took a long time to replenish. I would skip it.

While staying at the Hotel Julien, Caroline's is a great option for your meals. One of those "reliable" choices that has good food and good service. Large omelets too! The size of the breakfast gets you of to a good start!

WE ate at Carolines while staying at the hotel. We had breakfast which was quite good and had hearty portions. Price was reasonable for a hotel restaurant and service was very friendly. We also had dinner here - and again the food was quite good and a nice ambiance. I would recommend going here for a nice meal.

I really like the variety of food and wine selections. My only negative is the kitchen service is very slow. Average wait everytime I have eaten here has been 25-45 minutes.
