We had a relaxing dinner before the theater. With reservations, we were seated immediately and didn't need to rush. Food was delicious, especially the pecan-coated trout.

Have been frequently and finally sat down to say I have taken the Carlyle for granted. The appetizers are super, although I keep going back for the deviled eggs. I have pretty much done the menu, but crab cakes still take my breath away. I...More

We actually had both breakfast and dinner and both were good. I would label this restaurant along with the others in the area to be quantity vs quality oriented. Adequate food, fair prices, good service. But if you are looking for fine dining we would...More

Hadn't been to the Carlyle in years - so went there for our anniversary. It remains a great source for an above average menu, excellent wine choices and friendly, competent staff. The downside is the noise level. You can't hear your date speak, so I...More

We all had something totally different - from the crab sliders, to the club sandwich to the deviled eggs with sugar cured bacon to the corn and crab chowder to the special avocado salad - and each of us came away feeling really good. Service...More

Strolling down for supper on a Friday evening, we were met by a friendly and knowledgeable staff, super eager to make sure we got a table - and one to our liking, if at all possible. Once there the young woman waiting on our table...More

We had an excellent brunch with great service. Doesn't hurt that they serve delicious breads from a bakery next door that makes banana bread, muffins, sticky buns, donuts (and cupcakes). Most at our table got the scramble which was a nice combo of scrambled eggs...More

I have been to Carlyle for family celebrations (including small children as well as teenagers), romantic dinners, business meetings, and snacks at the bar. This is a versatile, consistent, locally-owned eatery. Yes, it is usually busy and a bit noisy in some places, but call...More

Yes, Carlyle has a gluten-free menu.
Can you accomadate customers on a low salt diet? Butter is ok but no other sauces or dressings that are more the .05% sodium per serving? Are all veggies and meats fresh or frozen as frozen often has sodium as a preservative. What would you suggest other then a stripped down salad with vinigar and oil dressing? This would be for lunch on July 20th. We would be a party of 15-20 with 2 important members on low salt diets due to heart desease.
