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.

We hadn't been to the Crossroads restaurant for a couple of years, during which it has been redecorated in a lovely, formal Southern charm. Alas, the food hasn't improved as much, although they try. I ordered the sweet potato leek soup, which came with a pork belly meatball so tough I had to use a knife! The soup was brown... More

Loved this restaurant, ate dinner and had breakfast there. First off the catfish was the best I have ever had. The service was impeccable and the breakfast buffet was much more than adequate. Would definitely recommend.

It's not many restaurants where you have an actual table cloth to eat on. But everyone deserves to be pampered every now and then. My wife and I got the buffet for lunch. The food was well seasoned and hot. The service was excellent, very much people friendly.

Only breakfast, but white table cloths anyway, plus a rose on each table. Excellent service and food. The decor and colors were so peaceful. Our waiter was very personable and helpful. Coffee cups stayed full.
