Great food

Great food, convenient as it is in the hotel. They have a weekend seafood buffet that is really good and a value for the price!

The Carolina Cafe is in the Westin Hotel, it's also sometimes referred to as the Carolina Room by the hotel. My first impression was not good. I stood in front of the podium for fifteen minutes waiting to be seated. Both the on duty manager and the hostess walked by me twice. Everyone was too busy doing side work and... More

Ate here for lunch today. The food was fine. I had a grouper sandwich (huge) and had the salad instead of fries (18.00) and my husband had the angus beef hamburger with fries (16.00). There was a conference at the Westin Hotel and they had not hired enough wait staff to handle them all which is strange as you would... More

My wife and I came for drinks and light fare on the first night of our stay. They took amazing care of us! Offered great wine choices and the shrimp quesadilla was outstanding. John was our server/bartender. He was fun and made us feel special on our anniversary weekend. We don't usually love "hotel" dining experiences but this place is... More

Wings, jumbo shrimp cocktail were very good. She crab soup was also good, but very thick. Did not like fried grouper sandwich.

I love the Westin Hotel, rooms are great and most staff are friendly and helpful. Great bartender but limited menu in the Carolina Cafe and most items are loaded with fat. The one and only waiter told me I could not order items not on the menu, however management was fine with me ordering plain steamed shrimp - not the... More

The room service was good as well as in person. The options for lunch are very limited. The flounder sandwich was a breaded, greasy filet accompanied by greasy fries. That was a disappointment. The prime burger and breakfast options were much better. The salads were good.

Many hotel restaurants are so so. they don't try hard and the food is mediocre. Not this place. We ate here twice during the week and both times was gorgeous. The she crab soup is one of the best things I've ever tasted and the steak that followed was lovely. My wife had the lamb shank which was equally gorgeous.... More
