Great service and great food.

From the moment we were greeted to our finishing dessert, we very happy with the wait staff and food preparation. Our waiters suggestions were spot on!

The food was OK (not great), the service was slow. We had a larger group -- 9 people -- so they automatically added a tip. I dislike this practice but understand that it happens. However, they added the same tip to every bill! Some people paid 24% for a tip for slow service! The hotel staff said their crab cakes... More

Carr's is delightful with inviting atmosphere and some top notch dishes to please your palate. I loved the seafood and the bar makes some very good fufu drinks :) Caesar salad was great, the soup was really good, and so was the fresh rolls to start the meal. I went back a few days later, it was so good. Also... More

I took my father who was visiting and a few family members out for dinner. This is my third time there and every time I go we get good food, service and prices are reasonable. My father got pork and sauerkraut and I was skeptical being that it is a German dish and he loved it. We have gotten the... More

I tried the fish soup and it was packed with great seafood and flavor. I then tried the tuna lettuce wrap and the tuna was seared prfectly with a bunch of... More

This restaurant was recommended by friends and we were not disappointed. Got there on a Sunday- barely made it before the end of dinner service- which concludes at 7PM on Sundays. I had steak and my wife had fresh fish- delightful. The Sunday dinner menu is less extensive than the reset of the week. Great food and a cozy atmosphere.... More

We were first-timers and entered into what we thought was the main dining area - to learn that the main restaurant dining is downstairs. It was like discovering a charming secret. Although I can still remember how much I enjoyed my shrimp and crab scrapple and my veggie burger (somehow the chef made this selection seem like fine dining fare)... More

We had five in our group; arrived before the actual restaurant was open for dinner. However, every employee we met was accommodating to our request for wine before dinner and light snacks. The food was excellent with a lot of taste and the cook appeared during our wait to discuss the menu. The entire experience was worth the 30 minutes... More
