Always great food, ribs and chicken are perfect!
Staff is always friendly
A wonderful meal and ambience. We joined two other couples. My boyfriend, myself and a friend ordered the Charcrusted bbq pork chop/half slab baby backs combo. Incredible, and enough for two meals. Along with our meals came their amazing cole slaw(can opt for salad) as well as a side dish. This is our go to spot to reconnect with old friends. The service is always attentive and warm. Try to save room for dessert. I’m a big fan of their key lime pie and tiramisu
Out door patio was perfect! Food was delicious! Staff was incredibly kind!
The food is always amazing. We love the ribs but this time I got the steak with char crust. Exceptionally great! Wonderful people and atmosphere. Great night out.
the food and service was great we had ribs at carsons
Best pork chop around. Nothing like it!
Great food. Always order ribs and the potatoes with cheese.
A delightful patio, off the road but plenty of space between tables. The wait staff was excellent—I’m seeing so many restaurants backing off of service to reduce touch points, but Carson’s staff did a great job keeping drinks rolling and water glasses filled. Despite gentle hints, the group we were with stayed longer than the restaurant asks but the manager did a good job rotating tables and not rushing us—truly grateful! Our favorite outdoor place.
Our server, Alex I believe was his name, was excellent. Efficient with a fun personality. All our food was prepared as we ordered. Everyone enjoyed the healthy portions.
It was very good. Tasty hot ribs, great tasting cole slaw.
Nice to see practicing safe health environment !
Great service outside during covid.
Good table spacing.
Excellent food to go!
It’s a nice BbQ place. Good ribs, fun liver and cheese self serve. My #1 fav place is Houston’s for tender ribs, the feel of this location is similar, cozy, fireplace’s booths and leather, but Carson's has au’gratin and Houston's does not. A bit noisy when full. Love it!
Great food and atmosphere!
It was great as always!
Havent had Carsons in quite a while. Made the trip up from the city to the Deerfield location. Of course, half of my party ordered the ribs. We all had the same opinion of the ribs. Not tender and very rough to eat. If it wasn't for the great bbq sauce, the ribs were almost inedible. The appetizers were great and service was top notch. Overall, we were all pretty disappointed .
Went to dinner with parents, children and grandchildren. Food was very good as was the service. Will definitely be going back.
It was delicious , table of six by the fireplace for our out of town guests . They loved it all !
As a frequent visitor to Carsons the food is Excellent usually, this visit the silverware was dirty, Chicken was undercooked and the waitstaff spilled a cup of coffee on me. Highly unusual for this to happen.
Just very very disappointed on this visit.
We were looking forward to visiting an old friend, Carson's. The ribs were dried out, not much meat on them. Three of the 6 ordered ribs all bad. Salmon was sub-par. Even the au gratin potatoes were dried.
The cobb salad was the only thing decent after requesting some shorted ingredients. Perhaps eating at 8 pm was too late for them.
The waiter we had was impeccable! He was attentive, cheerful and asked thoughtful questions. He made our Christmas dinner wonderful. The food was outstanding. The restaurant was beautifully decorated for Christmas and Hannuakah. Thankful Carson’s was open on Christmas Eve!
Ribs came out ice cold and waitress was never to be found

The best coleslaw!
Great food great service
We wanted pork chop and the server told us they were out of them. It was a Saturday night. Probably their busiest night of the week. Pork chops are also one of their top menu items. They should have had plenty more in house not to run out of them on a Saturday evening.
Also, we requested to sit in the bar area and it wasn’t available and they said we could wait. We waited for a long time to watch them seat smaller parties at tables that could have been pushed together for our party. It wasn’t very smart of them.
I took eight friends for my birthday. Our table was ready when we arrived. Our server was ok not great but also not bad. All our meals came out at the same time and all were hit and correct. I thought $28 for a slab of ribs, potato and coleslaw was on the high side but they were very good. It was noisy but I do expect it to be quiet. Overall everyone in my group was pleased.
They were able to accommodate our group of 15 and put our two tables next to each other. They also gave us individual bills with the tip added in which worked out perfectly.
Unfortunately we started off on the wrong foot.....when the reservation for 8 was made we requested the large round table to the left of the hostess desk. I also called that day to confirm that we would be getting the table requested. When we arrived we were told that we could not have that table as it now was reserved for a party of 10. So we were upset, but since this dinner was to celebrate my wife's 70th birthday & our upcoming 50th wedding anniversary , we accepted the smaller round table by the bar.
The hostess did offer a round of drinks on them to make up for the issue.
Fortunately the waiter kept clearing the table in order to make space for each entree & the gifts that were presented by my family for the occasion. Also unfortunately my son ordered the prime rib sandwich & was told about 15 minutes later that Carson's had run out of Prime Rib. It was a Sunday at just past 6:00 6 PM & the steak house already ran out of Prime Rib?? All things considered this was not the best Carson's Ribs dinner my family & I had experienced over the past 20 years of dinning there.
Most likely it will be quite a while before we book any "family dinners" there.
I will say that the food was great & our waiter was the best.
Good food. Excellent service. Group of 7. Treated like family. Birthday celebration and was made to feel special!!
Moderate prices. Easy parking.
Overall it was a great experience. Our server was great!
Been here many times. I do not send food back. The server asked how I wanted my pork chop which I’ve had numerous times and I said medium rare. He said medium and I said again medium rare. It was practically burnt but still okay.
I booked it as a birthday but when the meal was finished the waitress asked if anyone wanted dessert? No cake or birthday cupcake. Very disappointed
Great food and professional service. Very nice evening
Is is a classic smaller bar bbq, but nicer place. Great classic Carson’s liver spread cheese spread. Great service, most times we have gone. Great food and drinks.
Only draw back is limited large tables. And kinda close quarters. Would be much quieter, if we were not there😊
We had a great time, the food was as good as the first time we went to Carson’ Rib in downtown Chicago and every other time since then.
Chopped liver a bit dry
Out of double baked potatoes
Ribs were good
Cole slaw was like soup
Waitress did an outstanding job, made dinner very enjoyable. Food is consistently good but coleslaw serving size appears to get smaller and smaller over the years.
