Sorry Carries, struck out this time. Though I have been going in the past (30 years). I recently ordered carry out Seafood Platter. First I was charged more than the posted price when it was rung up.
The plate was undercooked, very doughy. 2 plates were ordered. 1 had one shrimp in it the other had 3. Inconsistantcy is what destroys a business.

We went to Carrie's on Douglas Avenue two nights ago to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We visit Carrie's twice a year at least for their famous 3 lb. lobsters, and each visit has never disappointed. My husband always gets the Lobster Fra Diavlo which is the spicier red sauce. I could swear the lobster comes on a bed of more than a pound of linguine with additional shellfish cooked together with your lobster (clams, mussels). They separate the lobster for you too, so that you could easily eat the claws and tails without struggling. We always end up bringing half the pasta home because there is so much of it...

I had the white chowder, steamers, clamcakes and a stuffie which were all good (although the stuffie was a bit overcooked so it seemed dry). I've had many of their other seafood dishes and have always been happy with the freshness of my food. You can't go wrong with any of the seafood dishes. That being said, if you do not like seafood, you will find only a few other selections on the menu, mostly chicken dishes. However, they do start you off with a delicious hummus dip and warm bread that is to die for! We definitely get seconds on that.

The ONLY bad comment I have to make is that there are no free refills on sodas which to me is a spoiler. I don't think soda costs more than a few cents per glass, so charging us $8 for it was a put off. We have actually stopped frequenting restaurants which do this, but because of the great seafood, we will just not order soda anymore at Carrie's.

Go to Carries at 1035 Douglas Ave. This is the home of the 3 pound lobster. Carries @ 1035 is the place to go to when you want lobster at its best.  In addition to the boiled, stuffed, lazyman or fisherman style, owner/chef mike o'brien will also do a grilled or fra diavolo style.  No skimpy lightweights here.
