“Go for the view, not the service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

We went onto the deck with reservations on a football weekend, but did not find the restaurant really crowded early evening. No question, the view is fantastic. Food was good, but not spectacular considering the prices. The waiter tried very hard to upsell us on our wine choice, although we did not order the least expensive.

We tried several of the small plates as appetizers and were surprised that they really were so small that while they might work for one person, they were not designed for two couples. We ordered what turned out to be three stalks of aspargus wrapped in prosciutto and seperately a small bowl of mussels. We thought the waiter should have called our attention to the fact that the servings would not be sufficient for the table when ordering.

Main courses were very good, tried a dessert which was excellent, but overall you were paying for the view, not for great food and as noted in a recent prior review, expect slow service.

“Best crab cakes in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

This waterfront restaurant was recommended to us by locals, and it did not disappoint. The atmosphere is contemporary and handles casual boaters, business guests, and special occasion visitors. We did enjoy the crab cakes and continued with seafood salads for lunch. The restaurant has received numerous accolades and earned them.

“Don't Miss Carrol's Creek Restaurant on the Water in Annapolis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

We took the Historic Annapolis Walking Tour from the Visitors Center, and our guide recommended Carrol's Creek for a waterfront restaurant. We took the water taxi from the Harbor ($3/pp), and it was well worth it! We had an excellent meal (I hate to admit that we ate a steak filet rather than seafood), but the steak was one of the best I've had, and the scalloped potatoes that accompanied it were outstanding! Service was excellent as well. I highly recommend this restaurant for great food and a great view right on the Harbor!

“Great Views from the deck.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

Great View of the Harbor from the huge deck area. Perfect spot to sit back and take it all in. Great drinks, large food selection. Very slow service.
