“Always a Delicious Meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Have been to Carr's on another trip to Lancaster and had to go back. The food is delicious and the presentation is impressive. I try to pick entrees other than chicken out at restaurants, but I had to try the organic chicken breast after reading the description. The polenta that came with it was so creamy and tasty. The roasted corn and spring peas were a nice compliment to the meal and the tomato jam was yummy too. I'm embarrassesd to say that I ate every bite. Also shared the peanut butter chocolate cake with my mom and sister. The portion is small, but it is very rich, so one was more than enough to share. Lastly, the coffee was delicious as usual! I usually use flavored creamer in my coffee, but just cream and sugar with Carr's coffee is all you need. Carr's will always be a regular stop for us.

“FANTASTIC FOOD!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Neat little hidden gem. Corner restaurant with the bar upstairs and the dining area down stairs. Quaint place; neat artwork (LOVE the gray and yellow fish picture!). The food was absolutely outstanding. We are pretty tough food critics, but this was one of the best meals we have had in a while. Well worth the price. MAKE SURE YOU VISIT!!!!

“An Old Favorite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

We had not been to Carr's for a while, but it -- and it's predecessor Market Fare - have always been one of our favorite restaurants in downtown Lancaster. We went for an early dinner before a show at the Fulton (it's location makes it perfect for this) and both my wife and I had good appetizers, entrees and desserts. The service was also excellent.

“Great downtown Lancaster restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

We went to Carr's with friends who had eaten here before. We were not disappointed. The waitress was very attentive and friendly. The food was wonderful and the atmosphere was perfect. They have good selection of draft beer and the farmhouse Belgium beer was good. The rest of group liked the drink of the night which was a cucumber vodka drink. The appetizers were all very well received including calamari, artichoke crab dip, shrimp and lobster scrapple, and mussels. The main courses were all delicious including filet and crab cake and scallops with pork belly . Eat here if you visit Lancaster!
