One of the best chefs in Lancaster

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

This is a an outstanding restaurant. From start to finish; everything was perfect. All of the food was of top quality. The crab cake had a lot of crab meat, the flounder was fresh while the filet mignon sliders melted in your mouth. They had 3 draught beers; all were craft and good. The service was attentive and efficient. This... More

This trip was my third to Carr's. It's got an interesting layout, in a basement of a Lancaster building, near the market. The food that I ordered was pretty bland both of my first two visits, so for the third visit, I ordered a chicken Caesar Salad. All three times, it was ridiculously expensive (about $25-30 per plate). And even... More

Girls night out and what fun we had. Love their martini's fun selection . Food was fantastic. Chicken and waffles was my favorite but wanted to try so much more. Well I'll be back. Love the wine room. Server was very attentive to our needs which wasn't an easy task. A plus for my experience. Yes I'll return
