Carlins Restaurant has a little something for everyone!
Carlins Tavern was established in 1933 by the Carlin Family of Ayer, MA and catered to the local community along with military patrons stationed on Fort Devens. Since Carlins’ inception, the establishment has gone through many changes. At one time labeled a biker bar or a military bar, Carlins always seemed to fill a need for customers in the area. Now owned by the Berry family since 1973, Carlins is going through another change and stepping into a brighter, more family-friendly future. Introducing: Carlins Restaurant. Carlins Restaurant is now a dining establishment with a few modern amenities but is still a friendly, comfortable place to dine, have a drink and spend time with friends and family. Featuring a varying and quite tasty menu, a 24 draft beer system, friendly staff and a new, warmer look and feel, Carlins Restaurant has a little something for everyone!

Owner, David Berry, has revitalized this beloved landmark and looks forward sharing it with guests from Ayer and surrounding communities for years to come.
