I went for dinner with my husband. We started with Kobe beef sliders which were amazing. The best slides we've ever had. I got the Gulf shrimp and tortelli which was delicious and my husband got the lobster blt. The blt was tasty just messy to eat. For dessert we got the cheesecake which wasn't very impressive. Overall dinner was great. They had a good cocktail list and a very large bar area. We will definitely be going back.

The new menu is much better than the first iteration. I chose not to even try this place based on their first menu, but when I checked it out this week, it was much better. The food was surprisingly good, the $1 oysters were outstanding (although very slow in coming) and the service was very good.
If you eat here, you have to check out the speakeasy in the back. It would be great for a party or for after-work drinks.

Nice new spot
Great new location in Beacon Hill. Great food and funky drink list. Has pool in the back and another bar/lounge which was really fun and cool vibe.

Exceptional food AND service.
My wife had the pork chop, which she described as the "best she's ever had" (and she is a big-time foodie). I had the miso salmon and it was fantastic. Too often salmon is overcooked - this was perfect (and huge). Our waitress (Sigourney) was perky yet professional. Very attentive. The noise level is lower than many restaurants, which I really appreciate. It was terribly crowded the night we were there, so it will likely be louder at other times, but I sure appreciated this. It's now one of my top five favorite places in Boston.

The food at Carrie Nation was great. It was cooked according to our specifications and was delicious.
The atmosphere was also very pleasant for lunch. The service was a little slow but the food made up for it.

Something different in Boston
Had a great dinner at Carrie Nation this weekend. The restaurant & bar in the main room had a cool atmosphere. Loved the decor and the size of the place. You don't feel like you're on top of each other - very spacious - and the chairs were super comfortable. The food was also outstanding (when it finally arrived). I think they're still working out some of the kinks keeping up with orders in the kitchen during the dinner rush time. But, the food came hot & delicious. Got 3 different entrees and each one was outstanding (pork chop, salmon and scallop & shrimp dish). After dinner, check out the back "speak easy" for a cool, prohibition vibe. The crowd is a bit younger than the front bar, but the bartender makes a mean drink.

Carrie Nation is a great new
Carrie Nation is a great new addition to the Beacon Hill food scene. Styled as a speakeasy named after a notorious Temperance movement figure, Carrie Nation has an expected range of specialty mixed drinks and beer/wine. It also has a classy ambiance while maintaining a bit of whimsy, with posters of Temperance (anti-alcohol) ladies and upbeat, modern music. It's a great whimsical juxtaposition.
The food itself pairs well with the drinks. The fare is as expected for an American restaurant, with slight modern updates here and there that keep it from being pedestrian.

Great for a group
It's a very simple menu but everything was good and the service was excellent. While the menu is simple all of the food was cooked perfectly and tasted great. I've been for lunch and dinner and this was consistent. The steak frites could serve at least 2 people and the calamari appetizer was delicious. There are lots of big tables which makes it ideal for a group of any size. The speak easy is very loungey and fun - again great for a group or for a couple to tuck away in a corner.

This was our first time and we were pleasantly surprised. We took out of town guests and prefaced it with "we have never been here before" so it is new to all. Everyone enjoyed their meal, very tasty and cooked to our liking. The portions were generous but not obscene. The waitstaff were knowledgeable and attentive. The drinks were lots of fun and interesting and we were happy to try a good selection of them.
Going back again soon and have already recommended it to friends.

Our dining experience was exceptional. The food, the service and the ambience was over-the-top. The menu had different offerings of new ideas. We would highly recommend this restraunt.

A Great Place to Celebrate
My son turned 21 on November 21st and we were a group of 7 who went there to celebrate. We were given a nice big round table that was excellent for conversation for a group that size. Our service by waiter Mike was outstanding with attention to every detail. The food was delicious. My sister-in-law had the chacuterie platter as an appetizer that was exceptional. It was my second visit there and I once again had a Goat cheese salad with grilled salmon which is expertly prepared. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Good Food, Fun Scene
Went here on a Friday night with the girls before catching a movie. The bar area was very spacious and full of people and very energetic. We all enjoyed our meals and some nice wine from their menu as well. It was the perfect vibe for a Friday with the girls to enjoy some good drinks, good food and fun. Would definitely return and recommend.

Always, always, always order the Orange Blossom. It's a drink with power behind it but great flavor. From all the other cocktails I've tried at Carrie Nation, it's by far my favorite. Miguel was our server and was wonderful. Efficient, friendly and accommodating. Can't wait to go back.

Went here on a Sunday night
Went here on a Sunday night so it was more quiet than other nights, but the food was great and so was the service. It is near my apartment so I will definitely be going often!
