Beautiful restaurant with an interesting and diverse menu for lunch and dinner. Off the beaten track gem. Lovely drive through Buck's County.

We have eaten here before and the food was satisfactory this time, not as good as in the past. We were a little disappointed for the price. Pasta lunch special was very spicy and the sauce was too thick. Our other food was good, but nothing I would rave about. We might try it again, we'll see.

We recently visited the Carversville Inn with friends. Our dinners, all 4 of them, were excellent. Our only complaint was the noise level. After we had eaten our appetizers, a nearby table became very rowdy and noisy, to the point that we could not continue our own conversation. The staff were extremely accommodating and moved us to a quieter spot. I would love to go back for the food and ambience, but I would worry about another noisy experience.

We enjoy this place very much! We were just there for our anniversary. If you like Duck, I highly suggest you order it with a good house Bordeaux. The escargot is amazing as well. Great place.

Haven't been to the inn for a few years so decided to go with a friend for restaurant week. We sat outside and were one of two tables. Service was good through first course but deteriorated quickly. We waited over a half hour for our second course and had two different staff ask how are salads were to which we responded "we haven't received them yet". Once they arrived, they were nothing to write home about. Messily plated, not arranged, and only 4 small pieces of beet on the beet salad! It took another hour to get our entrees! My scallops were described as being served with chopped tomato and avocado: they were incredibly spicy to the point of not being a part,radiant experience and the wild rice accompaniment was bland, bland, bland. On a positive note, my friends salmon was delicious as were my escargot. Dinner took 3 hours. While it wasn't the best experience for us, give it a try and judge for yourself. I hope it will be a good experience.

We have been going there for almost 25 years and our very favorite is the roasted duck. The bar is great, wonderful drinks, food is exceptional and the atmosphere is lovely. Better than most NY restaurants (we are native New Yorkers) for half the price and an menu that is exceptional.

The food was delicious! However, the service was extremely slow and the waitress continued to forget things we asked for - bread, ice, a wine glass, etc. It took an hour before our order was even taken, and it was an hour and 40 minutes before we got served our meal. We were all pleased with the food we received, but you'd better have a LOT of time on your hands if you plan to eat here. Of course the ambience is excellent and it's plenty quiet to sit and talk. We just were all shocked at how long it took for us to get served.

We had to pour our wine a couple of times and it wasn’t that busy. But this is a minor concern. But one that prevented 5 stars in that category. Great place, one of our very favorites. Their duck preparation is amazing and it’s their signature dish. It’s always excellent.

Carversville Inn is so special. In a cute little town, a beautiful ride. It's very rustic. The crab and the pastrami sandwich were great. We loved sharing it with our friends from Chicago, and they were very impressed.

Love the ambiance! However, very noisy making it difficult to converse with those at your table. Also, be very careful when ordering soup as you would expect it to be hot but not still so hot after 20 mins that you can't enjoy it. Our food was dry, overcooked which was disappointing.

This is a nice place but grossly overpriced. I had the lobster bisque and when it was brought to me, I thought they must not have finished filling it. There was only 8 spoonfuls. My crab cakes were good. Everyone like their food, but was surprised how expensive it was. Our server was very good and attentive. I had a gift card so it didn't bother me much, but I probably won't be back too soon.

After many years, decided to go back because it was very quaint and food was very good. What a dissapointment! We arrived 10 minutes early,but they wouldn't open the doors to let us in, even to the bar. We were told the bar was quieter than the dining rooms, so accepted a reservation in the bar for four. It seemed like the heat wasn't turned on until we arrived. The waitresses were very attentive. The "local" bar crowd arrived and they were anything but quiet. Lights from a car in the parking area were left on and blinded us for 15 minutes. The pasta was over sauced and too well done. The crab cakes were burned and the sauce was burned alsoand very spicey. The duck was over cooked and dry. The onion soup was 90% Soggy bread, no broth.

The food was really good. The service was horrible it took forever for them to take the order and then she never checked back in on us. She didn't have many tables but seemed overwhelmed and kept jumping around from table to table and couldn't remember anything.

Carversville Inn is a cozy, friendly restaurant in the quaint village of Carversville PA. The food is, and always has been, excellent. We were seated immediately. The service was excellent - our waitress was knowledgeable of the entire menu, and made great suggestions for wine-food pairings. The atmosphere is cozy as the building is probably 200 years old - a great wintertime place to have dinner.
