I have been all over the upstate of SC, most of western NC, eastern TN and northern GA looking for good ribs and BBQ. Carolina Cafe and one other place in Pineola NC have the best my wife, cycle riding buddies and myself have had. And the best between the 2 we haven't been able to agree on. You'll love... More

Best place in town. Very busy. Hour wait during midweek, but worth the wait. Bar was a good place to wait. Very friendly staff, cold beer, great crab cakes, ribs and shrimp.

This place is a GEM out in the middle of nowhere ! Been there twice with guests and have been impressed both times. The steaks, ribs, chicken and fish were all really good. Large portions. Great service.

What a gem of a place! Tucked away inside a fairly nondescript building lies a magnificent find! The restaurant itself is quite roomy with plenty of wait staff. All staff we encountered were very pleasant and attentive to customer's needs. Hubby had the ribeye; I had the filet! Both were dee-lish! Of course, we just had to try their famous... More

Once a month, we girls get together for dinner to catch up. We chose Carolina Café this month and it didn't disappoint. It was Tuesday, so the special was ribeye and boy did they deliver. Everyone ordered the ribeye and everyone was pleased. I recommend this restaurant on any night, but especially on Tuesday

Shrimp and Grits are very good, they're unique in their taste! I loved every item that I have tried at this restaurant. The atmosphere is nice and cozy.

Heard about this place several times in the past. Visited this past Saturday. Nice, clean place. Staff was very attentive and prompt. Food was ok. Had the black eye ribeye, Cajun seasoned, cooked medium rare which it was. Just so so, nothing to rave about. Cheese grits on the side were just average. Onion rings were some of the best... More

Everything I've eaten here has been good. My best is the ribs and bacon wrapped shrimp. The salad that comes with it and the sides are also just as good. Come early, it fills up fast and then you have to wait. If you don't mind order and eat at the bar.
