One of a disappearing few!

We absolutely love dining at the Caro-Mi. We have been going there for years for special occasions, usually our wedding anniversary. It is "old-world" family-style dining at it's finest.

Amazing, I go whenever possible. My family has been going for four generations and hope to continue the trend. The pickled slaw is unlike anything I have ever had, red eye gravy over grits is to die for, the country ham is the best I've had. You can't go wrong here! The only thing I can think of that I...

We are at the Caro Mi last weekend and found it to be pretty good. We had country ham, flounder and mahi mahi. All was prepared well and delivered fairly quickly. It had been quite some time since we had eaten there but it was as good as we remembered it. The slaw is a little funky, but that is... More

I discovered Caro-Mi over 2 decades ago. Went back a few months ago so my husband could experience it. LOVED the food...totally loved that it is served family style, not indiviual plates like a typical restaurant.

I have been going to caro-mi for over fifty years. They have always been a great place for family style eating. I love there ham, although my son and daughter insist on the trout when they are in town visiting. The owners have changed over the years, but all have been very friendly. The Staffords have continued this tradition. Highly... More

My daughter and I stopped here for dinner after a day of hiking, because there were so many cars there, it had to be good...located on a site with a covered bridge over a mountain stream, and a porch furnished with rocking chairs for those waiting, I wanted to wait longer, it was so charming. The owners were pleasant and... More

I love the Caro-mi it's one of the most unique and charming places around. Everyone I have ever taken there has loved it and gone back again and again. I'm a country ham girl and the slaw and macaroni salad as appetizers are top grade. If you don't like southern cooking please don't bother to come , but if ham... More

A real treat when we make the trek to Caro-Mi Lodge. We have always enjoyed our food. The country ham is my husbands favorite and I love their trout. The sides are always prepared southern style with the slaw being a little 'different'.
