Nice lunch spot

We ate here before taking a tour of the UNC campus. It is located in a beautiful, historic hotel. They do have free self parking. While the lunch menu did not have a lot to choose from, everyone in our group enjoyed their lunch. The service was excellent.

Carolina Crossroads Restaurant is so brilliant that I did something I almost never do on a trip - I dined there twice. I had been aware that the restaurant is known for their homemade pimento cheese. While in the hotel room I watched a video from Executive Chef James Clark demonstrating how he makes his perfect pimento cheese. the video... More

We had a working lunch here and it was wonderful. They have Pepsi products instead of Coke, which is really the only negative. The lunch buffet is likely hit or miss, but when we went it was perfect. If you're in the area and enjoy good (Southern) food in an elegant atmosphere, this is not to be missed.

We took our grdtr here for an end of school year treat as she loves afternoon tea! The tea hostess was very courteous and took our beverage order and the choice of teas was excellent. When she brought our respective teas, we were delighted to find they were piping hot. However, the food items were mostly bland and lacking in... More

After a long day of flying from Seattle to DC and down to Raleigh, after checking in to the Carolina Inn, we had a quick dinner in the Carolina Crossroads bar. Pulled pork sliders and a filet of catfish. All served promptly and with style. Perfect end to a long day on the plane.

We had a marvelous meal in this charming, classic restaurant. The staff was professional, yet warm and welcoming. They started our meal with an amuse bouche and even comped an appetizer we asked about. They had a wine from the Biltmore Vineyards which I really enjoyed. Each dish is elegantly presented and tastes impeccably fresh. The sauces are expertly prepared,... More

I dined here alone on Monday evening and the staff were very welcoming; setting up a single table for me by removing the extra chair. A small vase with a rose on the table was also a nice touch! One of the best things about this place is that the provenance of almost all the food is listed on the... More

We enjoyed full breakfasts, lunches and mid morning/ mid afternoon snacks each day for a 3 day conference. All the food was delicious and I can imagine they would do a stellar job or weddings or other large events. Staff were very attentive while also unobtrusive. A nice touch were some true Carolina treats like pimiento cheese spread and Cheerwine/Sundrop... More

This stylish restaurant within the Carolina Inn offers a somewhat limited menu, but the food is quite creative and good. However, this time we ate dinner there for Christmas Eve and they had a three course set menu including soup or salad, entree and dessert. The choices for each were very satisfying.
