Let me preface this by stating that this is our neighbourhood restaurant.
Tonight was lobster night at Carters Kitchen, so we thought we'd give the restaurant another whirl ....
The restaurant itself is well appointed, there are 4 main seating areas, the bar and joiners table, the main dining area, the side porch and the outside covered seating porch. If it's cool enough, ask for the outside area ... it's very relaxed and comfy.
Service at Carters is friendly without being over bearing. Service staff are knowledgeable about the menu and willing to accommodate special requests. ... (slice and dice with entrees and sides).
There is no written childrens menu, but ask your server, she's rattle off a list of possibilities - the usual uninspiring kiddo's stuff, corn-dogs, cheeseburgers, tenders, pasta etc.
There are two menu's, the bar food menu and the main menu, you'll be greeted on both by mainly good "ol southern cooking'. Shrimp and grits seems to be a house favorite and the lamb chops are juicy and good. If you're looking for lighter fare, there are seared scallops etc.
Tonight was lobster night .... ordered the surf and turf - I got the surf (lobster) and my 11 daughter who is partial to steak, got my steak (turf) plus a additional side. Lobster is lobster but this 1 1/4lb(er) was delicious, served with drawn butter, potatoes and sweetcorn on the cob.
My sons chicken tenders with fries and green beans were pretty uninspiring but we two girls were happy.
The staff have talked Chef Carter into buying an ice-cream maker - so tonight we tried home made chocolate ice-cream. Nice touch ... they promise that they're going to make all kinds of flavours in the future.
The only thing that spoiled a great night out with the kiddos was the brash, vulgar table next to us. I should have thought and asked NOT to sit in the covered porch areas where table privacy can be an issue. Oh, well .....
Good restaurant, not great, I wouldn't travel for it, but I as I can walk, I'll return!
