Our waitress was attentive, friendly and very helpful with what food to order since it was our first visit. The best onion rings I have ever had. Enjoyed the tomato pie but would've liked more...

Great food and service! I had fried green tomatoes with homemade ranch, homemade thousand island dressing on salad, pork and sweet potato fries. Everything was delicious. Owner was very friendly and waitress was awesome.

Great restaurant in Scottsboro. This place has been around for many years. They serve many great dishes, but the specialty is their tomato pie! Hard to beat!

Outrageous prices for mediocre food aside, the waitresses are overworked and don't have time for their customers, because they spend so much time in the back doing what salad bar ladies are supposed to do (they don't have salad bar workers for a salad bar, so they force the waitresses on $3.14 an hour). I'm a server, so I noticed... More

We really enjoyed the fresh food at this Christian restaurant . The hamburger steaks were perfect as was the baked potatoes .

We were traveling through the area and decided to try this spot for dinner. What a good choice. The food was delicious southern cooking. The fried green tomatoes were to die for. We had the buffet. Everything was homemade. The southern fried chicken and catfish were out of this world. Who serves cream corn shaved from the cob with a... More

This is our third visit to Carlile's. We keep going back because we know we can count on great, friendly service. The food is usually very good. The tomato pie is the best thing on the menu. I love it and get it every single time. The chicken, regardless of the diah, is always nice and tender. The barbecue is... More
