Carly’s is a bar and limited menu bistro on Roosevelt Row in Phoenix. The decor isn’t much but if you’re interested in an imaginative menu, decent drinks and a progressive, arty vibe, this place will do just fine. And it won’t cost very much, either....More

Nice simple atmosphere, clean well balanced dishes, relaxed vibe, good service. A nice place for a comfortable break in the Roosevelt District. I've been for lunch and dinner. We always feel that we were well treated, and enjoyed the food.

This is my favorite restaurant in the area near Roosevelt Row. They always have fantastic draft beers and sandwiches. On this trip I had the ultimate grilled cheese (prosciutto bacon, aged brie, smoked mozzarella, swiss) that comes with tomato bisque. I would highly recommend.
