This was a nice Mom and Pop Restaurant unfortunately due to covid-19 they didn't have a live band and some items on menu. We were the only ones there but that's was cool since was for a birthday. The Reisling wine was really good

We tried 55 Degrees for the first time tonight and loved it. The food was fantastic, the wine was great and the live music added an ambiance we don’t usually have in Carrollton. We’ll definitely be back!

Everything we had to eat was incredible! They were busier than they expected to be, so the service was a little slow, but to be honest we didn't mind at all - they got us our wine quickly and were attentive the whole night. Make sure to save room for dessert - SO GOOD!

We came in a group to celebrate, and 55 Degrees didn't disappoint! The service, as always, was attentive -- but never intrusive. We love the intimate ambiance, right on the square in downtown Carrollton. Their menu has a great variety of options, and you can tell it's freshly sourced. We were treated with a complimentary slice of cake to top off our celebration -- not one piece to split between the 7 of us -- but we were each given an individual slice to enjoy! Can't wait to go back to check out their live music on the weekend. Well done 55 Degrees!

In on a weekday during the mid-afternoon to catch up with an old friend. Service was attentive without being intrusive. Food was very good. Wine suggestion was right on the mark. Particularly enjoyed the French onion soup.

Thought we would try a new wine bar. I don't consider this a wine bar with only a dozen wines. The food was very good and the people were very nice.

55 Degree's is a gem. First off it is nestled in old downtown Carolloton which is charming. Parking is ample. The food is excellent and the owners personally see to everyone's happiness. I highly recommend 55 Degree's for a variety of occasions.

Servive is slow BUT we didnt mind at all. Its family run and the only have one cook so it takes time to get food. Drinks come quickly and they have plenty of games available for entertainment.

The food is ALWAYS great and prices are great for the value.

Party of 4 and we ate at 6pm on a Friday night. There was only one other table filled which was surprising but maybe because it was Good Friday. All of us enjoyed our meals. The hummus was very tasty. Would have liked to see slightly lower prices on the wine as it was $10 a glass as the lowest option. That said, I would still go back as the food was good and the place is unique and. It just another chain restaurant.

My mother, my husband and I ate an early dinner after attending a matinee theater performance. The staff greeted us and sat us immediately. We were the first in the restaurant but later, more people showed up. We ordered shrimp and grits, mushroom risotto, pasta primavera, a caesar salad and a piece of carrot cake to share. It was all excellent! The helpings were generous and we took home leftovers. Previous reviews called it a hidden gem in historic downtown Carrollton and I thoroughly agree. We told other family members about our experience and hope that we can all go again. Don't pass up the opportunity to eat here!

Service was okay, but extremely SLOW. After waiting for so long for the waiter to take our order, we opted to just stick with a glass of wine and an appetizer. We skipped the entree and went someplace else.

Such an adorable, quaint little restaurant. I love this place - he décor, the hominess. Have been here many times and will continue to go back. I had the butternut squash soup and 1/2 sirloin sandwich - delicious! The host/waiter was very attentive and anticipated all our needs.

I love small, mom and pop restaurants and 55 degrees is definitely that. And I really wanted to like this place. But the service was pretty much non existent. It appeared that they were maybe short on staff and we had to stand at the entry for too long before a harried gentleman finally came up to us. “We’re not seating anyone without a reservation” was his greeting to us. I told him we had a reservation and he grumbled something and took us to a table in the back by the kitchen. We got water right away but sat for a while and had to ask for menus. A nicer but harried looking lady came and took our wine order and then we waited too long to get the wine. We finally ordered dinner and waited. Our glasses were emptied for quiet a while with no refill offered and we waited. Then finally the food came out and it was delicious. But still no wine refills and no follow up service. I finally caught the older gentleman’s eye to ask for our bill and he grumbled that we just go to the front desk area to pay. We did and we waited. And waited. Finally he came back and took my card.
These appear to be well meaning folks who maybe don’t understand the service concept of the restaurant biz. Even though they may have been short staffed, they could have been nice to us and we would have understood. But the grumbling, no smiling, no follow up for empty wine glasses and such was pretty off putting. I wish these hard working folks better luck in the future but I strongly suggest that they up their game a little. A smile is easy and free. Grumbling and treating people as if they are a nuisance won’t ever be ok in the food service biz.

This little gem quietly sitting in downtown Carrollton was absolutely amazing. They are simply marvelous there! Food and service by far exceeded my expectations! The in-house made almonds are addicting, and the tapas are a must as well! Definitely gotta go back for brunch!
