Wonderful dinner !

Enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Carr's prior to a show at the Fulton. Our waiter - Chris - was great and let us know he knew we were heading to the show, so we could relax and know he would be sure to get us out on time. I had the crab cake and it was great...my husband had the... read more

My wife and I had Easter brunch here. We were promptly seated, and presented with a classic brunch menu, plus Easter specials of lamb and ham. What was very special about this menu was the slight variations to the offerings. Eggs Benedict, with a fine layer of spinach and a fried tomato set this dish way apart from the classic.... More

The food was not the best I've had, nor was it the worst. My rule of thumb is the food I am being served needs to be at least as good I as I can make, and with that in mind Carr's was average. I could make the food equally as well, but I was not disappointed. The prices were... More

Carrs felt very much like dining in a beautiful NY restaurant. Food is beautifully prepared and the service matched. Unfortunately we had to leave before dessert (a show to see). I had scallops...they were cooked exactly the way they should...not a moment too long! We dwere 4 adults...all were pleased with our meals. Highly recommend Carrs. We called to say... More

Went to COSCO in Lancaster and ate here with another couple. Were seated promptly in the wine cellar, great drinks menu, nice smooth Chardonnay, great service, and the food was outstanding. I'd definitely eat here again. Parking was a little challenging, but we're not familiar with downtown Lancaster.

We looked for a good Restaurant near to our hotel , we read the reviews of Carr’s restaurant and decided to go there. Location is very tricky ,because is on a close street that we didn’t see it easily When we did our reservation, they told us it was complete busy and booked all night Saturday 14th, then we decided...

Definitely worth a visit. His crab cakes are the best around. I have never had anything but the best food and drink at Tim Carrs.

Went to Carr's for a holiday lunch for six people and let me tell you the food was delicious. Service was great. Each item we ordered was better than the last. We even order desserts which were also excellent. The Caesar salad was amazing. I am a very picky restaurant critic and when I say I was happily impressed I... More

We used to save Carr's for a special dinner date but lately we've enjoyed lunch there as well. The food is perfection and the staff is friendly.

I celebrated my birthday today with my wife at Carr's. This restaurant never disappoints, as I have been going here for years. Located across from the historic Lancaster Central Market, the owner takes advantage of the Market's close location to buy all fresh ingredients. I had a Filet that was the best I have ever had. My wife raved about... More
