We have been back to Carr's several times. Last week we went for lunch and were not disappointed. The staff and service is outstanding. The food was good and the menu was varied and interesting. No doubt we will go back again.

In fairness I always try to find something positive to say in a restaurant review. One memorable element that is worth mentioning. Carrs Restaurant at the Central Market does not allow for such fairness. Neither the restaurant or the station of prepared foods in market has anything going for it. 1) Starting with the menu and food quality: it is... More

Overpriced for Lancaster, the food quality was acceptable but not great. The pasta was overcooked and was lacking in flavor. The place was very empty for a Friday night which may have been a sign. The server was very attentive. However, drinks were a good value as they gave you extra to refill my martini glass more than once.

This is a really nice restaurant in the shadow of the historic Central Market in Lancaster. The food is fresh and tasty and prepared from local produce. Nice atmosphere and staff. We often stop here when in the City for lunch or dinner. Great menu and portions are generous. Really love this place.

Located in downtown Lancaster I thought it would be easier to find.. but somehow I had a hard time. It is on a side street with no direct access via parking, and no sign on the side that faces the parking lot. The good news is the food and service were very good. Large portions, reasonable prices, no wait made... More

My husband and I went their to celebrate our anniversary. Both the service and the food were great. I had the small filet w/ lobster mac and cheese. It was delicious and more than enough food for me. My husband had the 8 oz. filet mignon and he said that the taste was great and it was done perfect. He... More

Absolutely beautiful restaurant-very atmospheric. Food was fabulous and the service was equally wonderful. A little pricey, but I would eat there again.

A nice place for date night. We took the kids. It is not exactly kid friendly but the atmosphere was very nice and the food yummy. Certainty a nice place for couples to visit alone.

My husband and I were intending on going to an Australian restaurant for our last evening in Lancaster but we couldn't get a table until 9:15 and we simply couldn't wait that long. So, we started walking around and decided to go to Carr's restaurant instead. The restaurant is located on the corner of the famous market square. It looks... More
