Tried to go there for breakfast on a Sunday morning, having stayed down the street at the Holiday Inn. Got there about 10 a.m. and asked for a booth. Hostess (a high-school age girl, I believe) walked us thru the restaurant and I noticed the nicer booths all faced the parking lot -- so much for a view! The restaurant... More

Normally, I would be wary of a restaurant in a hotel as my experience has been high price / low quality. Compared to the NJ / NY restaurant experiences I am used to, Caroline's had great quality / quantity / service for the price. I am used to paying a lot more for a lot less. So good that we... More

Staff was very helpful and friendly. I like to try new dishes wherever I go and our waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu items. We had dinner and breakfast at Caroline's. There's a limited menu however there was plenty of tasty items and both meals were very good.

Spinach eggs florentine was amazing. Banana bread French toast looked great, also. Service was swift and food was nice and hot. Great breakfasts under $9? Awesome.

Ate lunch at Caroline's during a work meeting scheduled upstairs in one of the conference rooms. I had a burger and fries. The food and service were okay, but not above average. The price was lower than I would expect at the Julian's restaurant. I will eat here again.

The food was good and the service OK...for the price, though they could make sure the floors are cleaner. 32 out of 4 of us were very happy with dinner and the other two just OK

The food was delicious and our server, Sherry, was excellent. This is a lovely restaurant if you are looking to avoid excessive noise. Great place to dine and actually be able to hear and converse with your dinner guest. Thanks Sherry!
