How is this ranked 62 and how are chains ahead of it? I came here as a suggestion from a colleague and I could not have been more impressed. The food was delish and the service was friendly and inviting. I will always come here when in town. How is Newks higher? I generally trust TripAdvisor but I never go... More

Tempting choices of meats, cheeses, vegetables, and fruits. Desserts are limited. Excellent staff and clean premises and restrooms. One of our favorites.

The carving board never disappoints. They have some of the best homemade sandwich and I never forget to skip the spicy noodles every time I come. The ordering system could be a little better structured and I wish they were open more often but the food is some of the best.

The Carving Board never disappoints....we tried their roast beef sandwich and smoked turkey sandwich-both on sourdough ( wonderful crusty bread) with suggested toppings (cheese, mustard, tomato, lettuce, onion, peppers). Had sides of pasta salad(sundried tomatoes are a great addition to the old standby) and pickle spears. Will visit again for sure.

You can always count on great flavor and lots of options at Carving Board. Weekdays at lunch is a rough time to find a table and the line is often out the door, so you know that are doing something right!

Late lunch with my husband on Monday and we found ourselves a few steps away from the Carving Board hungry and tired. Soup of the day was delicious, a creamy basil tomato and served just hot enough. Chicken breast, sliced avocado and Russian dressing on sourdough toast was so flavorful and hit the spot. Staff are friendly. Restrooms are clean.... More

If you are looking for a great deli this us the place. Fresh carved turkey meat on your sandwich and homemade lemon bars are just a few great items on the menu. But take note if you come during the lunch hour be prepared to wait. The line is long but worth it!

Great salads, sandwiches, desserts and the best Crab Cakes on Friday! Never a letdown when I eat at the Carving Board. I do order via phone around lunch time do to the long lines. Worth the wait if you have the time!
