The food here (to go only) was so good we went two days in a row for lunch. The meat selection is amazing, and they sell both hot and cold sandwiches. They also have an eclectic collection of craft beers.

Love going to this meat market when we visit Kittery! The showcase is always filled with fresh delicious and specialty cuts of meat! The coolers have wonderful sides and prepared food and you can find some of the best microbrewery beers you ever dreamed of! And the staff is extremely helpful and friendly!

My brother-in-law gets his meat here. He recommended we try the pork chops. OMG. Apparently it is a popular stop for vacationers on their way up North. It is just off 95 on Route 1.

This is a butcher shop / meat market. They also have a pretty fair menu of mostly meat-based sandwiches, some cold, some grilled. The reason I'm posting this review is that my wife is a very picky eater, very critical restaurant go-er, and a gourmet cook in her own right. And she says that Carl's are the best burgers in...

I have food allergies and when I go to York Beach and Ogunquit, there is nowhere to get Boar's Head meats, but this market has them! And they are delicious! Being able to purchase my Boar's Head Oven Gold Turkey made my vacation so much happier! The people who wait on you are efficient and friendly. I shop in markets... More

A nice meat market from the looks of it. We got sandwiches to go and they were passable, but nothing to commend. BLT very dry & tomatoes terrible (ok, our fault for not realizing June too early for toms in Maine). I asked for & paid for avocado but could not see anything but small green smudge, nor taste any...

I was so impressed with the range of choices, the quality, and the personable service! Although busy, they seemed genuinely interested in what I needed and answered all my questions. They even gave me recipe ideas. I'm a loyal customer now.

We go out of our way to Carl's every time we need a special cut of meat, but really this should be more of a go-to. For example, I sent my husband there recently for ingredients for a new recipe, and the staff guided him toward the right thing even though I hadn't been specific enough on my shopping list....

One of the better meat vendors in the region, with Golden Harvest just next door you can pretty much have a one stop shopping experience (they may be the same owner at this point). I must say I don't think they have the best meat in the area, but is very reliable and good. People speak highly of the quality... More
