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!

Easy to love old fashioned menu with good selections and prices. Great service in a clean and quiet family type restaurant.

Carol's has an impressive menu considering all their food is made fresh daily. I had the fish with fries and coleslaw. Lightly battered whitefish was delicious. Fries were also great. The coleslaw was good, if you like creamy dressing like I do. The outdoor patio was nice. Service was attentive.

We stopped here on a whim and are glad we did. The food was delicious, very well prepared and served. The desert menu was extensive and oh so appealing. We will be back.

They sell out of dessert so order it at the same time as your meal and have your server set it aside, red velvet cake with cheesecake and carrot cake with a mound of icing...mmmmmmm! We've eaten at Carol's many times as we live in the area and love everything; beef stroganoff, reuben, homemade fries, tomato soup, patty melts. You... More

The food is made from scratch with many "signature" items! The portions are huge, but no leftovers due to how delicious it was! The service was superb! The server knew the menu and gave great suggestions. Their selection of home aid pie/cake is unbelievable! We were too full to try any but am planning a trip back during our weekend... More

First ate at Carol's when she was in Circle Pines. Recently moved back to the Cities and went to Carol's new place in Blaine. Taking some locals out for their birthdays and said, "Anywhere you want to go," and they chose Carol's! Good pick. The service is super friendly and very well-trained. Food is really good for a very fair... More

Went with another couple who had been there before. Good home cooking. We shared the special of chicken, and it was ok, but smashed potatoes were really good along with the bread. Same room for the pie
