The restaurant is located where you can find a few street spots but right next to an open parking lot. We made reservations to ensure we had a table. We arrived and the hostess when she put down her book greeted us. We got to our table and waited almost 10 minutes until we asked a waiter if this was... More

We stopped here for lunch before going to the Fulton Theater, which is very close by. Carr's was very well appointed inside with tables with comfortable chairs and a very large bar sitting area. We both had the specials - a delicious small pizza with grilled chicken and a grilled chicken salad with toasted pecans and blueberries. We waited 20... More

Hello, My Name is Tim Carr owner/chef of Carr's Restaurant. I'm very sorry for the poor reaction to our mistake. Open table is still new to us for reservations made in our upstairs space which is also new to us; we opened this over the holidays. If I could send you a $100 gift certificate to use on your next...

We had lunch at Carr's while visiting Lancaster. It's a very nice restaurant tucked away on a side street in the middle of town. You would easily miss it if you weren't looking for it.... I recommend you look for it. Parking was steps away but for dinner it probably fills up fast. There are parking garages very close-by though.... More

Carr's recently expanded into an upstairs space overlooking Lancaster's Historic Central Market. Having had a lovely lunch there recently, two friends and I had dinner on a Friday night. We were seated promptly, met our server and ordered drinks which where delivered promptly. I had the fish special (porgy) which was delicious and served with appropriate accompaniments. My dining companions... More

Lunch before the symphony = Carr's. They have expanded their restaurant and now have delightful upstairs dining at lunch. We were seating by a big window looking out to the alley near Central Market. Great people watching. The lunch prices were pretty good and the menu had something for everyone. The atmosphere and service were classy, we felt pampered and... More

Nicely appointed restaurant just outside Central Market in downtown. Street level open for lunch. Food prepared impeccably and excellent, attentive service. Three of us ate there, and all were very impressed with the food and service. Hadn't been there in awhile but now is the new hot spot for us. Returning this week. Bit on the pricey side for lunch...

The food was quite good - limited menu, which usually bodes well. The atmosphere is a bit stark. I guess the modern look is the trend. The wine menu is interesting, with some quite expensive selections. Thankfully they have a section of the list that is "$30 or less".

This is our splurge place - even the kids (older child at least) requests to go here. He says, and we agree, "they have the best steaks". We recently visited the newer/upstairs remodel and were impressed with the space as well as the pizza offerings. Several interesting choices that did not disappoint. The staff is always able and willing to... More
