“Nice upscale dinner during a 6 day roadtrip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

We chose Carvers based on a recommendation from the Best Western. It was walking distance and after multiple days on the road, a very nice change for dinner. The service was excellent. Our waiter had just returned from Spain the night before but did not seem jet lagged. The wine list interesting and reasonably priced. We both had fish, the ahi tuna and the salmon. Both were perfectly prepared. The restaurant is a bit dark, but that adds to the ambience.

“Affordable Steak House”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Carvers is a good place to get a relatively affordable meal. They have typical Steakhouse food and a nice wine list. Also a varried dessert menu.
I ordered the ribeye medium rare and it was well prepared. Soup or salad plus one side are included in the price of the meal. Reccomend.

“We only went in for a drink ....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

First and upfront this is not a dinner review. In fact I am writing this before reading reviews from other contributors; this is very much a tell-it-as-it-was.

We were staying across the street at the Courtyard Marriott and on a previous stay 3 months ago we had planned to eat at Carvers but their early closing times drove us away to Iggy's about 300 yards down the street. Yes, I know they are entirely different styles of restaurant but we prefer to eat late.
Anyway our decision on the second, more recent visit was to have a cocktail at Carvers before a later dinner at the sports bar.

We were seated in a very nicely furnished dining room which at 9pm only had three diners left in the place. It was a little formal, sepulchral even and the first server to approach our table couldn't take the order as he was not yet 21 !

The maitre d' approached. He is called Steven and I hope if he should read this that he does not mind being described as a forbidding looking, almost thuggish large man who would not be out of place as a New York bouncer. Never judge the book by the cover - he mixes a great martini and transpires to be a cultured and charming gentleman.
He took the trouble to explain their early closing policy by telling us that they are very busy in the early part of the evening and by 9.30pm staff are usually worn out. OK cater as you find it.

Under Utah laws you have to order food with a drink and we had a plate of butterfly prawns.
They were superb and our request for some bread to mop up the martinis brought a warm, freshly baked round loaf with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
By that stage we could have happily settled in for the night as the ambience and Steven's charm (and great martinis) played their role. We left feeling that we had had a very good appetizer and delicious cocktails at a reasonable price. Even if you don't want to eat at Carvers go in and have a drink - it is a very worthwhile and pleasant experience.

“Nice steak restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

One of the first things I noticed was that the restaurant was located next to a car dealership. Not the best location if you want people to notice you. We went there on a Tuesday night and the crowed was average so it wasn't very noisy. The menu seemed to have more meat items than seafood even though their business card says "Steaks and Seafood." Anyway, I ordered the NY strip steak and it came out perfect. Overall, everybody was satisfied with their entrees. The service was very good as the waiter came back many times to fill our glasses or asked if we needed anything else. I would go back there again.
