Quick friendly service. Delicious lobster roll. This is a a drive-in with basically take-out food, plus a fenced area with picnic tables if you want to eat there.

We passed this restaurant on our way to Blue Hill and noticed the parking lot was absolutely packed. We decided to stop in on our way out of town the next day to see what all the fuss was about. We certainly weren't expecting this!...More

Thank you so much. We are glad you loved your experience. Sometimes it takes altitle longer for our food to come out because of the fresh products that we use. We have live lobster tanks, where the lobsters stay until it is time to cook....More

We like to order steamed lobsters from Carrier's and take them back to camp for a great meal. The folks that work there are the nicest people.

Chose from the "Daily Specials" board to decide. Haddock burger was a giant piece of fresh fish cooked just right. Doesn't get any better and the price was right.

Carrier's has the best fish fry around. We drive about an hour just to have the BEST fresh fish. The batter is not heavy; it is light and crunchy. Good job, Carrier's!!

Yes for sure the haddock fillet is huge very popular. The fish and chips are nuggets that people love, but if you are looking for the big ol fillet order the haddock basket, haddock fry friday nights all you can eat.
