“Overwhelmingly average.”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Felt like I was just another tourist to be hustled through. Food wasn't bad. But wasn't worth the effort or the money. Couldn't see the view, so that wasn't a benefit either. Server was pleasant but seemed like she just had better things to do. Won't come back. And won't recommend. Was looking forward to a great meal for our first night in Annapolis and left feeling like better luck next time.

“carrol's creek brunch”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

Brunch was fantastic. Sunday brunch is well apportioned with good variety of items kept fresh. The desserts were amazing. I'll definitely return for the great view and food.

“Boat watching spot”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

Over the past few years Carrol's Creek has steadily made improvements. After spending a day on the water, they have great food and drinks. The inside feels a little too fancy to wear casual boating clothes after a long day in the sun. The outside deck is more of a post-boating atmosphere with a great view of the marina, water, and sunset.

“Service & Food Good (not exceptional)”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

We arrived for a birthday dinner a small party of 5. It took a long time to get our drink orders and then our orders for our meal. Appetizers consisted of Oysters on the half shell, Oysters with horseradish, cheddar cheese, and bacon baked in the oven, Cream of Crab soup. The soup needed crab meat, but the other appetizers were excellent . Dinner was the Halibut Special, which was dry and tasteless, A fillet mignon which was outstanding, the signature scallops which were outstanding, and the rockfish which was to die for. It was a long 2 1/2 hour meal, but in the end it was worth the trip.

“Everything was good (just not great)”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

After many years of living in Annapolis we finally decided to go to Carrol's Creek and test its reputation for great seafood.

It was a Sunday night and their were plenty of open tables, highlighted by the bright lighting of the restaurant which allowed great views of all the empty tables and ruined any hope of atmosphere. Service was friendly and our server had a strong command of the menu. Out of the 4 meals we had (all fish) 2 were very good (trout special and seabass) while the other two were disappointing. Presentations were pedestrian. Not a bad experience, just not as good as I was hoping for. Nevertheless, I'll return in the spring and give it another try when we can enjoy the spectacular view of Annapolis.
