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

We have eaten lunch at Carr's several times and have never been disappointed. The service is great, the menu is varied, and the food is good! Their desserts are delicious and the wine and drink list very nice.

Had tickets for the Fulton theatre last night. Friends recommended Carr's. Due to the fact that out of four of us, two had birthdays this was a special evening. The owner came over and welcomed us personally. Restaurant actually made a birthday cake at the request of my friend's husband and it was delivered to our table with candles lit.... More

Great spot for a "special dinner". Veal loin and a grilled meatloaf were outstanding. High quality food; fresh and creative ingredients. Decent wine list. Attentive service. Great deserts !

Took friends for dinner tonight (first Friday) and hadn't eaten at Carr's for a while. Usually go to the Loft or Log Cabin, but Loft was closed and Log Cabin too far from Lancaster art walk. We arrived and were taken to our table almost immediately. Restaurant was moderately busy... After 5 mins, our server introduced himself and told us... More

Quiet, very nice place. We ate in the wine cellar. Food was very good, fresh, & local. Prices were a little high.

The food here is excellent. However, we had one somewhat bad experience. We went here for lunch once, and my husband ordered a hamburger, and when the waiter asked if he wanted cheese with it, he said "yes." They charged him $2.00 for one piece of cheese. Maybe I'm just cheap, but I thought that was a little ridiculous.
