We split the chicken Marsala with 2 carafes of the house Chianti. Delicious food that was just enough not to feel stuffed. Final bill was only $50!!! Great meal and amazing value!

I lived in Carlisle, PA for almost a year and all the locals said to stay away from Harrisburg. Over the course of the year, I shunned their warnings and Carley's became my favorite spot. It's a perfect place for a date, never crowded, and the staff takes excellent care of you. The bartender especially knows his wine and will... More

We were surprised when we went to Carley's last Friday night and we wouldn't have needed a reservation! Other than an incredibly loud and annoying female customer at the bar, everything was great. Our meals were tasty and the service attentive. Loved the chocolate martini. We enjoyed the piano player as well who started around 7pm. We highly recommend "The... More

I've been to Carley's for dinner as well as just drinks and piano music. Trent, the main bartender, is fabulous. Dietrich is a great waiter and the food is always goods. They could add a few more items to the dessert menu.

This was our third time at Carley's. The first and third times were for dinner. The second was for drinks. We have been consistently pleased with the staff, the atmosphere and the food. Both times dining I had the chicken marsala (small portion). It was fantastic! I have also had the Caesar salad and the board with meats and cheeses... More

We try to visit this establishment each time we are in town for business. The bar bartender, Daniel, also takes care of the banguette tables in the bar area. He is attentive and helpful. Their wine selection offers something for everyone at fairly reasonable pricing. The bruschetta is quite good and we have had their flatbreads in the past which... More

I ate here with a group of 6 during Restaurant Week, where local restaurants serve a special prix fixe menu of appetizer, entree, and dessert. I had been to Carley's before, and I liked it, but it was a long time ago, and I was excited to see if it was still good. And it was. I started with a... More

The staff is friendly but the food and specialty drinks are below average. They have a piano player most weekend evenings.

The staff greeted us like regulars even though we had only been there once before several months ago. The wine selection was varied and we were offered a sample prior to making a choice. The apple crumble dessert was served warm and we were not rushed at all.
