“Enjoy Wonderful Seafood & Waterfront Dininng”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2009

My wife and I celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary with a romantic dinner for two at Carrol's Creek. We enjoyed a private candle lit table for two overlooking the water. We chose a lovely bottle of white wine (Washington vineyard) from the ample wine list. The Cream of Crab soup was a great choice for each of us as we began the meal. Very nice size lump crap meat throught the soup. For our main dish my wife enjoyed the fresh catch of the day grilled with fresh veggies. I selected a beef tenderloin topped with seafood & light white wine sauce. The portions were so nice we didn't save room for dessert. This was a special meal for a special occassion all for under $100. The wait staff were attentive but kept appropriate distance so that we could linger and drink in the experience. On our way out the door, a cozy cocktail bar caught my eye. I made a mental note to remember this spot when the weather warms this spring.

“Not my favorite anymore :(”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2009

I used to think this was one of the best restaurants in Annapolis, but can't say that anymore. The view is undeniably gorgeous, but couple that with mediocre brunch food, spotty glasses and silverware, and a server wearing a filthy apron, it certainly won't be on my list of favorites any longer.

“Overpriced and overrated tourist trap”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2008

I had had high hopes for this place from the reviews I read, but was disappointed on all fronts, except for the location: the view really was lovely.

My boyfriend and I split the crabcake entre, as well as a salad and the crab bisque. The portions were fairly large, so I was definitely glad we had split them, but I was really annoyed that they charged us a $5.00 fee for the privilege.

The food itself was solidly mediocre. It didn't seem like a lot of care went into the ingredients. I requested some olive oil for our bread (a request which seemed to confuse the waiter), and the oil they brought out was honestly disgusting; I only had one taste and then didn't touch it again. The butter for the bread was also not particularly good -- I suspect it wasn't real butter. Neither of which is a crime, but in a place that expensive, you expect them to use quality ingredients.

The other major problem was the price. Even splitting our food, and only having a 1/2 bottle of wine, the bill ended up being $95, including tip. Now, I'm not one to complain about spending a hundred dollars on dinner if it's a really special meal, but this food was just not that good.

Overall, it was a very disappointing experience, and I don't recommend this restaurant for anyone.

“Nice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2008

Outstanding view of the harbor, great service, food was outstanding - Cream of Crab Soup is one of the best around. Sauteed Shrimp Pasta was simply delightful. This restaurant is a bit pricy but worth the $$$.

“Brunch needs serious work!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2008

I met friends here for brunch last Sunday. Reservations were not a problem & we were seated promptly at a table overlooking the marina. Great views, but the food at this buffet brunch is disappointing. Scrambled eggs were lukewarm, as was the eggs benedict. Couple that with an English muffin too tough to cut with a knife, and the benedict was totally inedible. If I went again I'd skip the buffet table and go straight to the omelet station. I'm assuming those would at least be a little warm. Potatoes were also cold. On the plus side, the waffles were warm, crisp and delicious, as were the cinnamon rolls. Complimentary mimosa was also good.

Bottom line, unless you don't mind spending $21.95 per person for cold food, you're better off going elsewhere for brunch.
