We had another wonderful dinner at Carney's. The food is excellent. Great value for the price. We had beef, scallops, burgers, hot turkey sandwich and appetizers. All of our food was outstanding. Sam Adams Octoberfest is on tap which made the night. The staff is very friendly, the restaurant is immaculate and the entertainment is awesome! Thank you Carney's for... More

eh........chicken cacciatore was quite strange ..very DRY as sauce was just tossed with the rest of the ingredients ..with only a few (4) thin strips of chicken. I think I counted 2 mushrooms and a few onion slices. This dish is mostly pasta. Wife's steak was just OK according to her. She couldn't eat the potatoes or vegetables as she... More

My husband and I had dinner here for the first time this evening. (Saturday) What a pleasant surprise. My first impression as I walked in the door was an acoustical guitarist singing some ballads and a nicely decorated quaint old establishment. The food we ordered was delicious and our waitress was very friendly and efficient. The entire visit for dinner... More

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!

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
