My wife and I along with my brother decided to go out to dinner on a Thursday night. We are not big oyster eaters, but decided we wanted to try some of the famous "Apalachicola Pearls". We stopped and checked out the Boss Oyster, but my wife wanted to go to the "nicer" looking place next door, so we walked over to Caroline's. What a mistake! When we walked in we were greeted right away and taken to our table with a wonderful view of the bay. When our waitress came to the table she seemed very pleasant and went and got our drinks. I told her that my glass of tea that she refilled for me tasted like it had been sitting there for a while and was watered down. She quickly corrected me and told me that their tea was just light in color! I have been in the restaurant business for years and you just don't argue with a customer. Our salads were served to us and only one had croutons on it. She went ahead and served these to us and said she would be right back with croutons for the rest of the salads. My wife finished her salad before we ever saw our waitress again. A very mediocre dinner was served to us including a steak that was way overcooked! When my wife ordered the ribeye cooked medium, Amanda, our server, asked Med rare or Med well? Just Medium...she obviously picked Med well. After she served our dinner, we never saw her again until she came to pick up our plates. I never saw anyone to tell about the poor steak/service, and I have a feeling it wouldn't have helped. When Amanda did come back to our table, she smelled like cigarette smoke, so rather than make sure everything was ok, she decided to smoke! I would never go back to this place! Don't do it!
