“"the place with the food"”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

New to the area, and always a fan of "down and dirty dives" I had heard about this place in new Cumberland called carnahans. People actually call it "the place with the food". I was expecting standard bar fare (pit beef etc) which they have (and is delicious), but instead got made from scratch classic and inventive food. First time there I got the Elizabeth sandwich and was completely blown away. EVERYTHING is made from scratch to order. Even the boneless wings are literally chicken breast cubed to order, hand breaded to order, and cooked to order. WHO DOES THAT??

I've since become a regular and made pretty good rapport with the staff. 4 pretty ladies all with wicked senses of humor. Sweet girls who won't hesitate to regulate. Just like the shirts say, come back with a warrant!!

Oh yeah, skrimp po' boy FTW!!!

“Mediocre food, lousy service.”
Reviewed March 10, 2011

This place was once a quaint local pub. Somewhere you could go for a beer or sandwich, and leave feeling good about the experience. Now, it seems to be content with take it or leave it service.

“Take note - Locals love it. Others are welcome, but we love it.”
Reviewed January 31, 2010

Mike usually has a great list of specials on the weekends. The regular menu has plenty of favorites, but stick tot he specials if something looks good to you. Great food and great value. Atmosphere is very local, very friendly. Leave your ego at the door and you'll find a welcoming crowd. Say hello to Eddie and MJ behind the bar.

“Great Place to GO”
Reviewed March 17, 2009

We go every Saturday night and have a great meal and great service. The best thing is they will make you just about anything you want or make accomodations to the meal to suit your needs. It is an old town bar atmopshere and just like Cheers, everyone knows your name. I recommend this place to many and they all enjoy!

“Nice little dump to go to”
Reviewed March 27, 2008

Unlike some others that wrote a review. i enjoyed my visit to Carnahan's. I guess i didn't expevt as much as others did. I knew going in that it would be a local dive but sometimes local dives are better than some other local places due to the fact that they are over crowded and pricier. I ordered the hot wings and nachos and thought they were greeat. Matter of fact, my wife and i have been back just to get those items off the menu for carryout.
