Nice atmosphere. Good service. Food was mostly good. I liked the Caesar salad. My wife’s lamb burger was good. My octopus appetizer was over cooked and dry. I’ll keep exploring the menu, and I’m confident I’ll find something I like better.

The food is delicious. They have a great wine list and the World Series was on TV. You are right on the town common, so an after dinner walk is marvelous. Carson's is way more than a bar with food. It's a destination.
