The sign out front says open, but the independent valet says take a hike. Too bad they won't park your car here on weekends. They don't tell you that till you get here. No valet smile. I used to type the valet $20. Oh yes, this is a restaurant review. 5 out if 5 but walk here only.

We have visited this restaurant for decades, from the 70's. This was our first visit to the recently changed, I would say downgraded, restaurant. The old decor has been replaced by a bare bones look. Very noisy. Limited menu. Nothing about the new restaurant appealed to us. Our final visit!

This Restaurant is in the Carolina Inn. It has recently been transformed from an elegant southern dining room to a noisy cafeteria like environment. The food is still very good!

We came here for lunch as a recommendation from the UNC visitor center. The Inn itself has a lot of pictures from it's early days along with the area during the early days of UNC, which was very informative. The restaurant had very nice and good lunch options along with a very nice atmosphere and service. Highly recommend coming here... More

The Crossroads has the feel of a great restaurant in a fine hotel, rather than a hotel restaurant. The dinners we had were excellently prepared, and the service was cordial and hospitable. I would cheerfully dine here again when I return to Chapel Hill.

I recently had lunch at the updated Crossroads. It was my second visit after the contemporary remodeling. At first it was a shock from the traditional restaurant I have known for many years. But I found the atmosphere and menu really nice and very enjoyable. I really liked the fresh bread and olive oil that is part of the lunch... More

We are fond of the Carolina Inn and the Crossroads restaurant. However, with the recent contemporary update of the bar and restaurant, the Crossroads restaurant has lost some of original it's Southern charm. The food seemed heavily seasoned with salt, and the ambiance made it feel more like a contemporary hotel chain. OK for hotel guest to grab a bite... More

The food was terrific, creative dishes that were heavily influenced by the North Carolina area. Fried Green tomato appetizer was great. Trout dish was tasty. Beer selection was good.

This is the best place in Chapel hill to meet visiting friends from out of town. The Chef James is one of the top chefs in the region and I think he is due for a James Beard nod soon. He is the best in the city in preparing fish. I have been present when his supply comes in. He... More

My husband and I went to lunch at the Crossroads. We just moved into town and we love historic buildings so the Carolina Inn appealed to us. We were very disappointed with the lunch. The bread basket contained bread that small golf balls and when we bit into them, much to our surprise, they were spicy. I asked if there... More
