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.

We had a gift certificate we won at Carversville Day. Never was here before so we thought we would try it. It was cool and drafty where we were sitting, but it is a very old house. Food was good waitress got busy with other tables so we had to flag her down. Otherwise it was good.

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.

I was searching for that special birthday culinary experience and I knew I could trust Carversville Inn to provide the ambience, charm, service, and most notably, the epicurean delight I sought. It far exceeded my expectations and my guest's. We will return!

We went to the Carversville Inn for my wife's birthday last weekend (just before Christmas). This typically a very challenging time of year for restaurants to handle the holiday crowd. They did a great job. Our food was outstanding. I had the Crab Cakes which were seasoned to perfection and nice and hot. My wife had the Duck which was also done perfectly. The service was not up to the Carversville Inn's usual standards, but that was understandable due to the large number of folks there on the Saturday before Christmas.

The food was excellent. We had a cozy table by the fireplace that was very cute. The wait staff were polite and service overall was excellent. I had the scallop appetizer and salmon for dinner. I would get both again.
Highly recommend for romantic nights out or even girls night which is what this night was for me.

First time to this quiet, quaint hamlet restuarant. Cozy table by the fireplace with Christmas decorations. Menu had many good choices plus the evenings specials. Our server was nice, the bus staff efficient and the kitchen extremely accomodating as we enjoyed five courses (seven dishes); each crescendoed in complexity.
Outstanding meal; we'll be back!
