This Shirlington mainstay understands hospitality from the front of the house to the kitchen. Have eaten here literally hundreds of times; NEVER a bad experience.

You can't go wrong here! Food is always good and there is something for everyone. Excellent service too. For more formal evening ask to sit upstairs. In good weather you can sit outside and the bar inside is fun too.

We are regulars here because it is consistently excellent, either for lunch, dinner or brunch. main dish salads are fresh and unique (my favorite is the crispy two noodle shrimp salad), appetizers such as tex mex chicken enrolls and calamari are wonderful, and we won't order shrimp and grits anywhere else because we've been spoiled by the Carlyle's version.

My family and I were greeted warmly as if we were special friends. Since we wanted to eat upstairs, we had to wait and so were given a buzzer which went off within minutes. we were seated quickly with menus and our order was promptly taken. Everyone's food arrived exactly as ordered and was delicious. I was not surprised. I... More

I ask my wife all the time why we ever go anywhere else other than Carlyle. The food is fantastic, the price is reasonable, the service is stellar. It has it all. To be more specific: the smoke salmon is the best salmon that I've ever tasted. Seriously, it's amazing. Ask for the mashed potatoes instead of the mashed cauliflower... More

Three adults enjoyed a weekday dinner at our go-to place in Shirlington. The bread is always wonderful and the menu dependable. Unfortunately the trusted pecan crusted trout fell flat for the first time in years. Very busy for a Tuesday night and service was slow. The waiter and manager were very attentive regarding one our party's food allergy. Always appreciated.... More
