The steak was on special and it was really fatty and parts were tendons so was chewy. I tried this place twice and both times were bad.

Our server Cody was incredible. He did seem a bit nervous, but he did an excellent job. The food was Carver’s usual excellence. Thank you.

My husband's prime rib was tough and tasteless and my rib eye was very flavorful, but tough. WE have always had great meat here, so we were very dissappointed...

The meal was outstanding. Petite filet was tender and done to perfection. Our water, Dave, was knowledgeable and professional; very attentive. The ambience is old school steak house. Clean and attractive inside.
We all had a good time.

I had been wanting to try Carvers for some time. I wish I had gone sooner. It had a classic steakhouse feel, with a bit of a modern ambiance. Servers were very polite and professional, but also friendly and very knowledgeable. The food was excellent. The steak was cooked to perfection. The French onion soup was one of the best I had ever had. I’m looking forward to my next visit.

Green beans were overcooked. My husband had the Thanksgiving turkey dinner. He was disappointed
that he could not have a turkey leg. Several slices of white meat over mash potato. My daughter and I ordered off the menu. Halibut was delicious and so was the filet mignon. Next Thanksgiving, we will all order off the menu.

A very disappointing meal. We understand that restaurants are busy on Holidays, but this Thanksgiving meal was the worst we've ever experienced. We had dined here many times in the past and enjoyed it, so we wanted to treat our family of 5 to a hassle free and fine dining experience.
We ordered the traditional Thanksgiving meal. It was so bad, so salty, it tasted just like a frozen T.V. dinner. I'm not kidding. It made me wonder if they had run out of turkey and replaced it with Banquet frozen foods. We had been to Thanksgiving at Carvers before and it was good. So, I was sad and embarrassed that with all the choices I decided on Carvers to treat my family. I learned my lesson and will be cooking next year.

We've been to Carvers for Thanksgiving dinner several times over the past years. They've always served us excellent quality, delicious food. The service is always friendly, attentive and helpful. We especially want to compliment Nina - our server - for her joyful attitude, great smile, and excellent service!!!

Always great food!! Wonderful and cozy atmosphere and their prices are not over the top. I eat here on a semi-regular basis, and I have rarely had bad service.

We both had the Early Bird prime rib dinner and shared the Cajun Lamb Chops. Server Steve facilitated the meal perfectly. Timing for the food served was at the right amount of time for dinner. The prime rib was Medium rare as requested and we believe one of our best meals at Carvers. We have been going to Carvers since 2002.

We had a wonderful birthday dinner for my wife and my son and his wife. Mushroom appetizer was excellent. Everyone ordered steak and they were thoroughly enjoyed. The wine corkage fee of $15 was very reasonable. Erica the waitress provided great service. All in all a wonderful evening.

Our first time ever and after many great reviews from friends we tried Carvers for my birthday. We were amazed at the excellent service and our food came out quickly and was hot. We never waited to be served. Our server was outstanding and very attentive. The food and prices really cannot be beat. We will be back for sure.

We have been coming here for years. Great food as always. Sadly had a heated discussion with a waiter about putting a chicken breast on a Cesar salad. He apparently needed to show off for his trainee. No recognition for the reason of the event.

This place is a find! The window seats were very picturesque and comfortable. The meat was very high quality and the young server was exceptional. Water glasses always filled, plates cleared, impeccable! The only issue we had was the music was a little too loud from the lounge but we will definitely return.

This is the second time at Carvers. It is a hidden gem. We live in Carlsbad and it is way out of the way. But, it is well work the drive. Classy, elegant, excellent service and better steaks than the best steak houses in town.
