The fish and fries were very prepared, but the staff was very helpful. We were a rather large table any most of us had to wait for what seamed forever to get stuff like refills and deserts.

Great restaurant for the NE side of A2. Go here every time I'm in town as it's near family.

Carson's is perhaps my favorite place in Ann Arbor to eat for the price. I am very surprised with some of the lower reviews on Google; I think that many of these reviews are older. Basically, at Carson's the food is as good as the other Main Street Ventures restaurants in Ann Arbor but at a cheaper price. It's also nice to be able to park right on site. I've been there at least a half dozen times and have never had a poor or mediocre experience. The food and service has always been excellent.

It's a decent restaurant. Reminds me of an Outback Steakhouse, but with slightly higher prices. I ordered a bison burger, but next time I'm in a mood for a burger I'll just go to Great Plains down the street.

They offer a ton of garnishments for Martini lovers! Olives Galore. Great Salads. Not as well known as many of the mainstreet venture restuarants but probably better than most of them when it comeas to relaxed, quality service.
