This coming week, from Aug. 11 to 17, locals will have the opportunity to try special deals at over two dozen establishments participating in Carroll County Restaurant Week.

The end of summer often serves as a slow time for restaurants, as people want to get in those last-minute trips to the beach before school starts and fall arrives. Restauarant Week aims to help boost business in that slow period.


Participating restaurants will be offering prix fixe menus, meals offered at a fixed price, from open to close throughout the week.

“This is, historically, a slow time of year for restaurants. So, by offering specials, where they can try to attract people to come to them, they’re not only getting business at a time where maybe they wouldn’t because of how slow it is," Chamber of Commerce President Mike McMullin said, “but they’re also given an incentive for folks to come and discover them. One of these local restaurants need to be discovered, some are already fan favorites, but I think it’s a great thing because it’s a slower time of the year for them.”

In another boost for local consumers, Restaurant Week overlaps with Maryland’s tax-free shopping week.
