We visited this charming restaurant during our overnight stay in Lancaster, PA and celebrated a birthday. The food and service here is excellent. The fig salad and duck special were very delicious. Also a big "thank you" to Bernie and Dru for being so nice to us. We very much enjoyed our evening there.

From location, to facility, to staff, to chef, to our dinner, all were top notch. The entire staff was welcoming and they even noted that we were celebrating our anniversary, seating us in a very romantic corner near the wine cellar. Our hostess noted that our waiter, Bud, was very good and indeed he was. Since this was our first... More

Great service, from host to server. Food has always been consistant, and very good. Best downtown restaurant . Easy parking. Also the decor is clean, refreshing.

Carr's is one of those places that won't make the top spot in Lancaster County dining,but again, you cannot go wrong. The Chef/owner focuses on wine and fresh ingredients. For those not from Lancaster, the Lancaster County PA Dutch side of the menu will provide a good example of the local cuisine. As a Lancaster native, I don't order from... More

Went to Carr's before attending a play at the Fulton Theater, Told them we were operating with a time constraint. So were many of the other patrons. Excellent food and service. Both had seafood dishes. When in town, will definitely return.

Carr has a nice atmosphere and the service was very good. The food was prepared well, but the meals were a bit bland. The crab cakes were full of crab meat, without a lot of seasoning or herbs. The shepherds pie was more like mash potatoes in vegetable soup. Overall nice experience, just not the most flavorful.

We went here on a Saturday night for dinner. Very busy, so make sure to make reservations. Very nice setting, with all the dining rooms downstairs below grade. Wonderful wild mushroom ravioli. But my husband said his crab cake was mostly filler. Very good service, we were never rushed but the waiter was always there when we needed him. They... More

The service was low, it took 45 minutes to get our drinks, and another 15 minutes before our order was taken. The service was slow. There were six of us, and we finally were served dessert 2 hours after we arrived. Our waiter disappeared after dessert and we had to track in down for the check..

I was seeing a show and had about 45 minutes to grab a drink and something to eat. Walked by Carr's and thought I'd give it a try. I sat at the bar and was greeted very warmly by the bartender. Totally quiet and subdued environment -- exactly what I was looking for. Quick glass of nice red wine and... More
