On a recent visit with my mom KW and I were treated to dinner at Carney's Tavern. A nice young man was playing the guitar in the bar and we sat in the historic dinning room. We started with mussels and shrimp cocktail. KW and I split the scallops which were cooked to perfection. Mom had the poor mans surf... More

This restaurant is fast becoming our Sunday night family restaurant. There is something on the menu to appeal to all three generations and the food is great. The chef has come out, on each of our visits, to chat. The homemade pasta is so good and the fried pickles are amazing.

Had dinner on a Saturday night and really enjoyed our meals. The selections were great. Not just a pub menu. We were surprised by the upscale menu and they delivered!

What a treat. Was there on a Thursday and then again a week later on a Saturday with friends. If you like great food and music then this is your place. I met Matt who is one of the owners there who plays guitar and tends bar too. Super nice guy with the kind of personality an owner should have.... More

Under new ownership!!! My husband and I took our children there for a family dinner in January. Our meals were all excellent. We have gone back three times. There is consistency in the quality of food and the portions are perfect. I recommend you make a reservation. We recommended it to our neighbors and they have been several times as... More

The food was beautifully presented, fresh and delicious. Our waitress and other staff made us feel very much at home. The interior of the restaurant has been... More

We had a party of 9. The food was delicious, the pistachio scallops are to die for, the calamari was superb, everyone was very happy with their meal. The service was excellent and friendly. One of the owners stopped and asked if everyone was satisfied. The atmosphere is cozy and warm. A true dining experience with the home town feel.... More

My husband and I took the kids to have a nice post Valentines dinner. I had spent much time at Carneys over the years and more this summer. The summer is what brought me back on the 15th. The food was wonderful and the service quick. Not so much this evening. My soda and gin had no gin. Our waitress... More

Went there for a lunch with my wife on a Friday afternoon. Strangely empty except for the staff. We were greeted warmly and seated by Stephanie. We ordered a few drinks and had burgers for lunch. The food was cooked to order, and was quite delicious. Our waitress stopped by several times to see if everything was ok, or if... More
