We had a great stuffed portobello & spicy shrimp appetizers. Steaks were great! Wine was reasonably priced too

We really enjoy Carvers. The food is consistently good and the staff is very friendly and helpful. We like to bring in our own bottle of wine and its never a problem. Although they do have a very reasonably priced wine list. Our favorites are the Spinach salad and the Prime Rib and we love a good Crème Brule.

Our group of four went here to have a fine steak dinner at the end of a wonderful week in San Diego. It seems that if you want a filet mignon you are in the right place but the other 2 orders were not up to par. An order of prime rib was over cooked and seemed small. An order... More

Food was excellent. I had an 8 oz filet cooked to perfection. Baked potato was terrific as was the romaine salad. The next nite I had grilled lamb chops excellent. Service good as well. I recommend highly.

This steakhouse is more than excellent: service, food, design, fair price, they got it. We had romain and spinach salads really good, rib eyes, one was the day's special cooked, excellent both of them, and a warm apple crisp for dessert. Service was more than you could expect. If you are around stop by.

We started the meal with a calamari appetizer which was fabulous. It was fried but not greasy. The sauce and vegetables make this the best calamari I have had. My husband had the prime rib and I had the beef medallions-they were a special and had three different sauces. I see from the other reviews that some people were unhappy... More

I'd like to preface this review by saying that despite the criticisms below, I truly liked Carvers and will return. My brother and I had 7:30 pm reservations on a Thursday night and the restaurant seemed to be relatively busy. It was a little confusing to find as it's in the middle of what appeared to be an assisted living... More

My strip was 30% fat and undercooked, my wife's filet medallions with three different sauces were overcooked. Sides and salads were OK. Service was great.
