It's a good restaurant, but there's never a lot of change in the menu. The one good thing that's usually available is the Banana Pudding.

Met a friend for lunch there. We were seated upstairs, and the decor was lovely. Wait staff were attentive. Carlyle had an extensive lunch menu, including gluten-free. I continue to enjoy this restaurant.

We stopped for lunch on a busy Saturday with family. Staff was so friendly and helpful. Our waitress gave our 3 year old granddaughter an Etch A Sketch to entertain her waiting for our food. We were given a bread basket with fresh, hot selections...More

The Carlyle is part of the Great American restaurants and, I think may be the best!! The food is consistent, the waiters work extremely effectively in teams and the atmosphere and environment is great! They were decorated for the holidays with the biggest poinsettias that...More

We had the deviled eggs and fried calamari as starters, then salmon, crab cakes, steak as entrees. All food was expertly prepared and tasted great. Service was friendly and quick. All in all, a great dining experience at surprisingly moderate prices.
