    We are from out of town ( Prescott Az) but enjoyed a great meal for this second visit. Service was great, staff very " customer in", food very tasty and plenty of it. Ribeye done to my requested medium rare, would have liked an anchovie with my Caesar salad and no tomatoes. It the portion was great. We thought the dinner value was very fair for the customer.

    A locals secret! Top notch service. Amazing drinks. A lot of times if you are looking for an upper end drink options they will have those available, such as Blantons and some upper end tequilas for that slow sipping. We came in during the Fort George festival on Sunday and they were having fresh dungeness crab manicotti with a goat cheese sauce. It was amazing!!!! OMG! It was on their special menu but their regular menu if also a knock out!!! John and Kimmie

    We love Carruthers so V'day dinner there should be great. They were not prepared for a full house. Food prep was way slow. It took 2 hours to get our meal. Recent adds to the menu are welcome and look promising. Will return on a quiet night.

    I had made reservations for happy hour before a show, so we sat at the bar. The bartender served us and he was quite busy, but he managed to mix drinks and take care of the patrons at the bar in a very efficient manner. The food was outstanding and came in a timely manner. Carruther's is definitely the place to go for a lively scene before a show. We will be back.

    Caruthers never fails to impress! The holiday menu was great. We had the seared scallops with risotto and it was outstanding. The brussel sprouts and stuffed portabello mushrooms were delicious. Our meal was complete with the creme brulee. Great service, wonderful meal.

    Carruthers is both elegant and at the same time somewhat cozy. Excellent dishes include seared scallops, cioppino, shrimp with coucous, the house salad, and pacific cod. Service is gracious. Prices are a little high.

    Was very impressed that I was contacted about my seating. We made the reservation in order to watch some live music that night, and they wanted to make sure we were seated appropriately for that intention. Food was great. We only dine here on special occasions, and are always satisfied. Just a fun venue.

Overall I would definitely recommend this restaurant. I would definitely say when we are in Astoria again, we will definitely be coming back. Thanks so much.

    I have been to Carruthers many times and enjoyed it, but the kitchen was definitely having an off night. The food was mediocre at best. I counted 2 clams in the clam chowder and it was “pasty” tasting. The mushroom Mac and cheese was runny like it needed to be cooked more. Not good at all. The bartender was good, but I was seated at the bar and there was a lot if dialogue between the servers that I should have not heard. My birthday is coming up and I will have to reconsider about going there to celebrate.

    My cocktail and our apps were delicious but our mains were very mediocre. The Waitress knew very little about both the drink and food menu, and failed to check back with us after dinner was delivered. Quite disappointing given the price and a special occasion was being celebrated.
