“Fantastic Ribs!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2014

We saw the Carlyle Grill as we were driving by and decided to try it. Glad we did!! First off let me start with that our waitress was great she explained things such as what we could get instead of the coleslaw which none of us wanted and told us what would we could swap at no cost and what would cost us. The bread with their own butter that they make was so good that we got a second basket which I finished off myself. For our entrees 2 of us got the ribs and the other got the crab cakes. I had gotten the ribs and always cringe at ordering them at a place where I have never gotten them as you never know if they will be good or not. The Ribs were absolutely fantastic!! The meat came right off the bone so nice that the bones were left clean as a whistle!! They were probably the best tasting ribs I have ever had!! The shoestring fries were awesome. The broccoli was cooked perfectly. Just an excellent meal all around!! My only complaints would be they are a little pricey and the variety on the menu could be improved. After I got home I went online to their website and see about 4 steak entrees, the half rotisserie chicken and the pot roast on the menu online but they weren't on the menu at the restaurant, however, I am glad they weren't because they probably would have steered me away from the delicious ribs!!

“Always Good - Our Value Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

As always, the Carlyle service and good are excellent. This time I had the London Chop House Burger, great with the chips but one problem, it is too big. Make sure you are really hungry or save the rest for tomorrows lunch.

“Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014 via mobile

The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and the service was good. I ordered the chicken quesadillas. They use pulled chicken for the dish. It tasted good at first. However, as I was eating it, I noticed bones throughout the quesadilla from the pulled chicken. This limited my enjoyment of the dish. In the future, I hope they take more care and time when preparing this dish.

“Small things matter....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

It's been four years since I reviewed Carlyle Grill and while I liked to say we have stayed regulars, the sad thing is that we haven't. Spotty service and average food drove us away. This town has very high standards for it's restaurants, so there was no need to settle. On a whim, we returned to the Carlyle for an early dinner. We sat in the bar and ordered wings and a couple of drinks off the happy hour menu. For our entrees we went with the ravioli and spaghetti and meatballs. The wings were actually good - hot, spicy and average amount. The entrees were good as well. Not amazing, but good. The service - our waiter was fine, but the kitchen must have been out of sync. We waited quite a while for the wings, which is fine. Once they arrived, however, our meal came right after. The dilemma - which do we let sit and get cold while we eat the other? I know this is a small thing, but it changed the flow of the experience. Will we be back? Sure...just not with high expectations.
