RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 12 April 2017

We passed this restaurant on our way to Blue Hill and noticed the parking lot was absolutely packed. We decided to stop in on our way out of town the next day to see what all the fuss was about. We certainly weren't expecting this! Pulling up, you notice a window where you place your order. Don't get discouraged. Place... More

Chose from the "Daily Specials" board to decide. Haddock burger was a giant piece of fresh fish cooked just right. Doesn't get any better and the price was right.

Carrier's has the best fish fry around. We drive about an hour just to have the BEST fresh fish. The batter is not heavy; it is light and crunchy. Good job, Carrier's!!

I was traveling with my two teens from Boston up to Bar Harbor. We needed a quick bite to eat and of course, we wanted seafood since we were in Maine. Based on the reviews we just had to stop here and give it a try. You order at the front window, and then you can go around the side... More

Second trip to Carriers and its atmosphere is great! Order at the counter and wait to pick up... tons of seating inside and out... stuff for the kiddos to do, friendly folks from all over...

I'm a local and was craving something sweet so decided to stop at Carriers to grab an ice cream cone. I got there and decided on a Butterfinger flurry. I got a small, It was HUGE. I couldn't eat it all, not even half.

Several of us decided to give this place a try and none of us regretted it. The lobster rolls come in small (3 oz) or large (7 oz) and both were delicious. The scallop roll only had three deep-fried scallops but they were sweet, fresh and yummy. Would definitely eat here again.

Great for take out or in the rough dining. Doesn't look like much but the lobster, clams, other seafood are very goof @ reasonable prices. Excellent ice cream too; very large servings. I'd you don't mind ultra casual pick up you food at the window & eat at a picnic table; you'll love it.
