Visit Carvers Steaks & Chops and Fish for Lent

Although Carvers is recognized in the area for steaks and chops, we also offer great seafood and fish meals for the Lenten season. Lent is a solemn religious observance in the Christian liturgical calendar that begins on Ash Wednesday (first week in March) and ends approximately six weeks later on Holy Saturday, the day before Easter Sunday. The purpose of Lent is the preparation of the believer for Easter through prayer, doing penance, repentance of sins and denial of ego.
