We went to see the Movie "Mully" at NorthRidge Church. Carson's was on the route home so we stopped for dinner & , as usual, we were very happy with the atmosphere, the great food and the friendly, efficient service. Good choice!!

If you are on the north side of Ann Arbor and want a place to have lunch or dinner I would suggest this place as a possibility. The food is good but service can be spotty.
