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

We took family to eat at Carr's for First Friday and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The food was farm fresh and the service was adequate.

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

We have been back to Carr's several times. Last week we went for lunch and were not disappointed. The staff and service is outstanding. The food was good and the menu was varied and interesting. No doubt we will go back again.

In fairness I always try to find something positive to say in a restaurant review. One memorable element that is worth mentioning. Carrs Restaurant at the Central Market does not allow for such fairness. Neither the restaurant or the station of prepared foods in market has anything going for it. 1) Starting with the menu and food quality: it is... More

Overpriced for Lancaster, the food quality was acceptable but not great. The pasta was overcooked and was lacking in flavor. The place was very empty for a Friday night which may have been a sign. The server was very attentive. However, drinks were a good value as they gave you extra to refill my martini glass more than once.

This is a really nice restaurant in the shadow of the historic Central Market in Lancaster. The food is fresh and tasty and prepared from local produce. Nice atmosphere and staff. We often stop here when in the City for lunch or dinner. Great menu and portions are generous. Really love this place.

Located in downtown Lancaster I thought it would be easier to find.. but somehow I had a hard time. It is on a side street with no direct access via parking, and no sign on the side that faces the parking lot. The good news is the food and service were very good. Large portions, reasonable prices, no wait made... More
