Two of us took an out of town guest to dinner here to share how special the restaurant is to its diners. The menu gave us a great choice, from shrimp and grits, to duck to steak to trout. Our meals were presented beautifully and tasted excellent, as well. The service was perfect, giving us time to visit.

We stopped in for a quick lunch, they offered the buffet lunch or à la carte. We decided for soup and sandwiches. Service was very efficient. Food was very good and the price was right.

Valentine's Day was snowed out this year so 6 months later we were catching up. To get a top rating from me the menu has to challenge me to try something different and then 2 days later I have to remember what I had and still want to go back and eat there again. Crossroads at the Carolina Inn did... More

The Carolina Inn is a part of my DNA and I've lived long enough to see it evolve from a slightly frumpy, down at the heels institution to a genuinely luxurious hotel. This restaurant is a good, solid choice...my mother's favorite in town and the location of our family's annual holiday party. The service is as good as anywhere else... More

Stopped by expecting to order off the bar menu and when we arrived we were pleasantly surprised that they were having a Sunday brunch. The Inn was decorated beautifully for the holidays and was excited to get a table since we did not have reservations. The staff and service was simply impeccable. The wide variety of delicious food made it... More

The food at my ladies' lunches at Carolina Crossroads has always been delicious. The special on my most recent visit was a bowl of butternut squash bisque paired with an open faced grilled salmon sandwich on crispy kale, topped with pico de gallo: an all around treat for the senses. The service was great, and it's always an unanticipated pleasure... More

First of all, the menu is great. It has choices of various gourmet items. No fusion. No extreme spices. No tricks. Good food, prepared well. The duck breast was served with kale and potatoes with a hint of lemon. Great combination. The specialty was three fish served with vegetables. Each fish was prepared appropriately to keep the true flavor, so... More

We won a gift certificate to Crossroads at a charity auction and decided to bring my parents for Sunday brunch. Not knowing what to expect, we made reservations. We were greeted with the most outstanding service and delicious food. It is a bit pricey (we had a certificate, but if you paid normally, it'd be about $35 per person I... More

The Carolina Crossroads is located inside the Carolina Inn. The food was so good. I had the portabello mushroom cheese steak and it was great. The only issue we had was trying to find a park in the Inn parking lot because it was a football game day.
