My wife and I were in town visiting relatives and were looking for a place with homemade meals that wasn't a chain. This was the perfect place. My relatives come here often and I can see why. Everything from the food to the service was excellent. We had pot roast, turkey,chicken and walleye and it was great. No deli meat served here. Wish we had saved room for dessert.

Their food is great. I have had their turkey dinner and the Thai cashew chicken. Both were very good. Their desserts are terrific!

Carol's makes everything from scratch including all their salad dressings. Menu items include meatloaf, pot roast, stroganoff, turkey, beer battered fish and sandwiches. Everything is fresh and delicious although sometimes presentations could be improved. I had the hot turkey dinner which included two slices of turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, corn and a very minute dollop of sweet potato the size of a quarter. It was just like Thanksgiving but portions could have been a bit more generous. As another example, the house salad contained one cherry tomato and one slice of cucumber. Still the prices were good and the walnut rye dinner rolls, served warm, are fabulous.
Service was a bit erratic on a Friday night; very slow and not attentive. For example, we didn't have enough cutlery on the table for our party which was not remedied as quickly as it should have been. Desserts looked scrumptious (although we didn't try any) especially the carrot cake. Still, if you like home cooking this is the place. There is also an adorable gift shop attached to the restaurant which has a nice selection of gifts and knick knacks and sells that house made salad dressing.

Hard to find a truly home-cooked meal nowadays but Carol's has done this consistently for many years now. The restaurant has a relaxed ambiance with comfy seats and pretty decorating . Saturday nights there is a singer to accompany your dinner out. The food is what brings us back. The oatmeal for breakfast, the hot turkey sandwich, and fish dinners are excellent. The food is fresh and tasty without too many calories. There is also a cute little store attached if you need to pick up a small gift or just browse. Very enjoyable place for couples, families and group gatherings. We have a birthday group that meets there once a year also!
