Regular stop about once a month for breakfast. Love the pancakes!
I also enjoy lunch. Swedish meatballs are great.

“great food and feel young at the same time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2013

stopped by recently for lunch with a couple of friends needing a "homeade meal" and that is exactly what you get here. Food portions are large and filling. The breads are wonderful, roasted turkey dinner is real turkey, real spuds, stuffing and cranberry to boot. Save room for dessert which always has many options and again, they are huge. Two or three people can easily share one and be happy. Service was wonderful. Oh and about the young part, evidently the elder set has dinner about the time I normally eat lunch, so we were some of the only people without white hair enjoying the dining.

“Home made everything”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

My sister and I eat at Carol's about once every month or so. We love the food. You especially want to take advantage of the chicken and turkey dishes year round. Where else do you find whole birds roasted and then carved for sandwiches, entrees, etc.? The Nova Scotia rolls are so good. I love all the home made salad dressings. My favorite is the walleye, but I love the turkey dinner. Delicious desserts, too.

“no complaints”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

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!
