Veal piccata had no taste. Apparently tomatoes were used instead of the usual or traditional capers and lemon. Meatloaf was satisfactory and good. Waiter did not provide the service we expected from this restaurant which had been highly recommended. For the price we paid, we could have had equal food at a local diner.

Had a great meal at Carrs. They can handle anything from a group of 25 to a romantic dinner for two. We had a group of ten and were seated in front of the wine room. So fantastic. Loved the atmosphere and the quick service. We were all going to a theatrical production and they served us in speedy time.... More

I've visited Carr's several times while living in Lancaster, and every time, the food was spot on, delicious, and beautifully presented by a friendly wait staff. It's high end and priced accordingly, but definitely worth the visit. It's small, so make sure you call or check the website for instructions.

We went back there again for our Anniversary. We had Bud as our waiter and he was great. We took advantage of his recommendations and loved them. The drinks were great, Lemon-Drop Martini and Mojito. I had the 8 oz. filet mignon ($34), which was done perfectly and was delicious. My husband had the Seared Scallops ($32) over a bed... More

Had a number of recommendations and reading TripAdvisor Reviews we decided to try Carr's. Normally we try relocations for lunch first but the reviews made us fell confident that it would be good. We were not disappointed, although our plan was to arrive early and have cocktails at the wine bar. Unfortunately the wine bar was closed for renovations. There... More

We visited this charming restaurant during our overnight stay in Lancaster, PA and celebrated a birthday. The food and service here is excellent. The fig salad and duck special were very delicious. Also a big "thank you" to Bernie and Dru for being so nice to us. We very much enjoyed our evening there.

From location, to facility, to staff, to chef, to our dinner, all were top notch. The entire staff was welcoming and they even noted that we were celebrating our anniversary, seating us in a very romantic corner near the wine cellar. Our hostess noted that our waiter, Bud, was very good and indeed he was. Since this was our first... More

Great service, from host to server. Food has always been consistant, and very good. Best downtown restaurant . Easy parking. Also the decor is clean, refreshing.

Carr's is one of those places that won't make the top spot in Lancaster County dining,but again, you cannot go wrong. The Chef/owner focuses on wine and fresh ingredients. For those not from Lancaster, the Lancaster County PA Dutch side of the menu will provide a good example of the local cuisine. As a Lancaster native, I don't order from... More
