“A lucky find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012 via mobile

We had the she-crab soup, and really enjoyed it (which is saying something since we're from the SC coast). Also try the potato slabs and Philly French Dip. Great service and clean establishment. We will definitely try to go back.

“Afforable and nice atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

After spending a long day at my daughters dance competition, we were starving. We wanted something good to eat that wasnt crowded and came across the Carolina Grill. We were seated immediatelyand the menu was diverse and the prices were affordable. The food was good but the desserts were even better. Try the lemon berry cake..it is to die for!

“Typical chain restaurant”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012 via mobile

I stopped in for lunch for the first time last week alone to get some work done and eat a little something. The interior was tastefully decorated. The food was terrible. The spinach artichoke dip was something from a tube it had a very dull taste. The black and blue salad was aweful, my steak had the texture of a medium rare steak(as requested) but the steak was slightly old so it was not red nor pink. I ate two bites. The lettuce was your typical bagged spring mix with no flavor.
The staff was very nice and accommodating. But I will not return.

“Service and atmosphere are great - food is too pricey for what it is”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

The waitstaff has always been very attentive and the atmosphere is nice. I have been several times just because it is convenient and quick and because someone else chose the restaurant. The food costs more than it should for what you get I think and I have never been very impressed with anything I had to eat.

We ate here once while in Columbus. Nice atmosphere, great food! Easy access off the interstate. Menu has a variety of choices that will suit all tastes!!!
