Remember growing up near there and going with parents and getting a Dairy Queen. In fact after I had my own family I use to take them there prior to moving away

When Carol's opens in the spring, we know summer is definitely on the way... and when Carol's closes, it's a fond farewell to warm days. Food selection is standard dairy bar takeout, I like all of their seafood and the wife enjoys their cheeseburgers with onion rings. Large portions. Good ice cream also. Family owned.

I find Carol's, although convenient, is inconsistent. I'll visit, have a great meal. Visit again, and the meal is mediocre. I find the same with the staff. Some are friends and serve up the food quickly; other times, the help is less-than-pleasant and food takes a really long time. Parking is tricky, especially during busy times. They have a wide...

Carol's Dairy Bar is family owned, on the corner of two very busy streets, but if your looking for some great fried seafood, or a really good ice-cream , so there. My favorite place to go after the kids had a baseball game.

This is your typical take out joint. I have mixed feelings on this place. Some of my friends love and others are like me just average food. Thats not to say that its bad but just to say it doesn't make me crave to go back.

Found this place on my way to a new job. Wanted a quick bite to eat on the fly. Glad I stopped! Very friendly counter staff. Ordered my food and took out my debit card and was informed they are cash only. She pointed me across the street to an ATM and said she will put my order in. I... More

We usually end up here when we want soft serve ice cream. It's always good and sometimes great but I can't explain why. When it's really good, it's got more sweet vanilla flavor and an icier texture. Hard to explain but I recommend you try it a couple of times.

Been going here for years and now I been taking my kids here too. This is one of those places when it is open you know the warm weather is here. If you like your traditional dairy bars with Burgers, Dogs, Ice cream, seafood platters, onion rings,etc.. this is the place. I can honestly say that the service is good... More
