About Us

Scenic Downtown Port Orchard

is the home of Carter and Company, where we finally settled after a fairly turbulent ten years.  Looking forward, we continue to strive to provide to the people in our small town, the kind of fare that can be expected in much larger cities.  We try to create a happy, inviting ambience with friendly service and of course, excellent food.
We are thrilled that Port Orchard keeps electing us the Best Desserts! 

Community Involvement

This is a picture from the very first Taste of Port Orchard, that was thrown together, quite succesfully, with about two weeks notice, mostly by Grant, the then chef of Amy's on the Bay.  There were probably 8 or so vendors, one band, and it was held in between the bleachers and the bandstand on the waterfront. POBSA has taken that over and done a tremendous job growing the event to one of the best weekends of the year.  We have been thrilled to be involved in all of them!

And this is where it all started!

...upstairs in the old Mall behind A&W, where I imagined I could run a succesful business enticing the many people who were and still are flocking to Ace McLendon's and Goodwill.  I thought I could open 5 days a week, from noon to 6 and enjoy lots of time off!
That was close... but not quite!
