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

Went for an impromptu lunch on Sunday. No reservation, but was seated right away. The server was friendly and helpful with explanations of certain items, and the service was excellent. Our meals were expertly presented and delicious! We were glad we splurged on dessert. I had a fantastic chocolate creme brulet, and my son had the chocolate and peanut butter... More

Parking is adjacent to Carr's in a pay lot. Food is excellent, but it is down stairs. However, one can request to ride in an elevator to return to street level. We go there at least 6 times each year before going across the street to the Fulton Opera House.

We were so looking forward to dining in the new upstairs. Made reservations in advance; confirmed reservation day before, only to be told they have no reservation in our name and acted like we were lying about it and they were doing us a favor seating us. Snafu at the bar earlier that evening, lousy service. The food was good,... More

The new upstairs dining room is beautifully done. Enjoyed it quite a bit. The bar is quite pleasant as well. I wasn't happy with my food and sent it back, tried their chowder after that and could get that down either. My friends were kinder and didn't sent anything back but none of them were really pleased so I can't... More

12 of us ate at Carr's and were very pleased. There are two menus, and the youngsters got hamburgers and calamari while the elders got steak and crab cakes. The filet was the best I've had this year. Nice wine list, excellent service.

My wife and I visited Carr's last weekend and had drinks and dinner in their new bar dinning room upstairs. What a lovely experience! The hostess, bar tenders and wait staff were very pleasant and the food was excellent. We certainly will go back soon.

Having not visited Carr's for over a year, we were pleasantly surprised at the upstairs renovations to Carr's. For years, Carr's restaurant was located below street level. Though the service and food was always good, we natural light in the restaurant. Following renovations to the restaurant where Carr's expanded onto street level space above the downstairs restaurant, you now have... More
