We ate here because it was the only restaurant in the area still open at 9pm, and even here the kitchen was about to close. This is a “cook your own meal” establishment, which was a bit of fun. Salad bar is very basic but it was a pleasant meal.

I've been going to this restaurant for at least 28 years and it hasn't changed a bit (for the good)! Good steaks that you cook to your liking (or they will cook it for you). Good crab legs too!

The Palms gets a 4*, "very good", from me; not because it is the best steak I've ever had, but for the overall experience.

The food IS very good, but it is the experience of cooking your own steak and the chill, laid back atmosphere; the bonhomie of your fellow cookers, etc that make The Palms a special place for me and a place I want to come back to every time I'm in or near Carp.

I usually get the Rib eye and it includes a great salad bar. The wings are great as well.

The Palms has been around for years, locally family owned. It’s unique in that you cook your own cut of meat or fish on a grill that’s over a gas fire. They have a wonderful salad bar especially if like me you like beets! Open for dinner only has a bar but come early on weekends or during the summer & Holidays thevwait can be long! Fun place to eat, lots of locals & campers that can just walk up from the State Park on the ocean. The
