Carrie Nation is, essentially, a cocktail bar-themed restaurant. We wish it would drop the identity crisis and just stick to the cocktail bar part. It makes outstanding drinks and has a great speakeasy with pool tables hidden in the back, but the food is just okay, and if you go there to drink anywhere other than the backroom, you feel awkwardly lost in a space that’s way too big to be a bar.
