We started off by having some wine in their wine bar, and then had an excellent meal. Service was great and the overall experience was wonderful. We will be back!

Our New Year's Eve dinner at Carr's was very nice. We had the filet mignon and crab cake. It was delicious! For dessert we chose a chocolate peanut butter torte and lemon tart with raspberries. This is a wonderful place to dine when you want a delicious meal in a relaxing environment.

We come to Carr's when we visit family in Lancaster. Pleasant, comfortable, and classy surroundings. I especially love the Wine Room. The duck special was brilliant, as were the scallops. My parents declared the shepards pie to be the best anywhere (including the UK). Decent wine selection at very reasonable prices. Attentive, knowledgable service. Consistently excellent over many years.

Our three-generation party went to this downtown Lancaster spot because of their varied menu that included local standard dishes with a special twist. We all liked the decor and the service was impeccable. The waiter went the extra mile to inquire of the kitchen about ingredients in a dish. Our appetizer came out hot and yummy although with the spice... More

Our first downtown dinner since we moved back- we picked a great place to start. I got the meatloaf and my husband got the pork and sauerkraut - we were both more than pleased. Finished the night with a wonderful chocolate bundt cake wit mint chocolate ice cream. Will definitely be back

Went prior to a show at the Fulton. We made a reservation but it was not too crowded through our time there. You may be okay with a walk in visit. They did ask if we were going to the show which was thoughtful. Service was a little slow but we think they have been pacing things accordingly so that... More

This is a wonderful restaurant. We love popping into the bar for a quick meal before a show at the Fulton . You can't go wrong here. They have a great reputation and have been around for a long time.

A number of couples had dinner at Carr's before attending the Lancaster Symphony recently. While the physical layout of the restaurant could use a little overhaul, our experience was pleasant. Our waitress was able to get our group through dinner with plenty of time before our show. The menu is varied with something for everyone, the service staff is well... More
