Best oatmeal

My husband and I went here for breakfast I always order the baked oatmeal which is made over night and served with cream, homemade toast. My husband has the hash we both had plenty to eat and the services was quick. Lots of locals eat here many of the staff know them by name. We have also done... read more

We've celebrated my husbands birthday at Carol's. With a bunch of people. The service was excellent and so was the food. We did not have a long waiting time for the meals and all came hot und delicious. Some had fish, some burger and two kids the Alfredos Noodles. Great place...behind us was an entertainer singing some swing songs. Good... More

Well if my grandmother owned a restaurant and did the cooking it would be called Minnies,but since she doesn't; might as well call it Carol's. What a nice old school dining experience,hand made food,local butcher used for the meat,huge portions,super friendly wait staff. Good prices,did I mention huge portions? Give Carol's a try,don't even get me started on the desserts(... More

Carol's Restaurant feels like a cafe with some dividers placed on the top of the counters between seating sections. Upon entering, I was seated promptly and greeted by my server. Decorative hanging lamps are over each table. The theme of the decor seemed to be country and was relaxing. The appetizer I had ordered was Cheese Curds which come with... More

My husband had the walleye-said it was the best he has had in a very long time(other than catching our own!). I had the grilled shrimp and it was excellent and nice large shrimp. The scalloped potatoes were sliced very thin and had such good flavor-just enough cheese, not over powering. My favorite dessert is their almond coconut cake :)

I recently moved to the area and Carol's is a frequent stop for my family. They serve excellent homemade food with friendly, fairly fast service. The pies are amazing and very large portions (get one piece for two people if they are very hungry, otherwise split one piece among four people). I also highly recommend the fried chicken special on... More

We arrive in Blaine at the end of a 3+ hour drive each way through fairly desolate terrain. We endured this routine every other week in the hopes of saving our beloved chocolate lab, Hershey, from an aggressive cancer that had been in her elbow. Our good fortune is that Carol's is next door to the hospital where Hershey gets... More

Breakfast was outstanding! They make their own bread and jelly. Who does that? No one. And that's what makes this place stand out and above other places. Also had the homemade cinnamon nutty bun. Soft as a pillow, not too sweet and served warm with your own cup of buttery frosting to slather on as you see fit. Unbelievably good!
