This is a fine spot for lunch. The staff is friendly and the food is very nice in ample amounts. Their prices are on the upper side of average but not out of line. There is a charming outdoor patio, a nice plus. This is a great stop before attacking the wineries farther down the road.

Carol's is part of the Baily winery. We had an enjoyable lunch last January. We ate on the terrace with lovely vineyard views on the opposite hill. The shrimp scampi is one of the best I have had and the cashew encrusted salmon salad is very good. There is some road noise on the terrace, but they have an attractive dining room with large fireplace as well. The service people were pleasant and attentive. They are closed Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday and, except for Saturday, are open only for lunch.

Enjoyed the Halloween feel with the live band while dining. Wanted to get up and dance but there wasn’t a dance floor space. Food is good, not fabulous. It is nice to have a restaurant in the winery area so that you don’t have to drive back to the town. Décor is very Gothic and fun. We’ll go here again because it’s local and we enjoyed the music tremendously and it's wonderful to sit outdoors to dine in the fall.

Been coming here for a very long time, and we will continue coming here for a very long time. My wife's current favorite is the vineyard chicken salad and mine is the duet of raviolis. Both enjoyed with a glass of Baily wine, of course (I'm a fan of the Malbec, but the whole wine menu is solid).

This is a great place to stop for lunch in wine country. The service is friendly and competent. The menu changes periodically and the server can recommend a wine pairing.
