Creative menu, beautiful grounds- Expensive!

The food was amazing- Brie and Leek soup, Fig pizza, Oysters with feta cheese, Pepperoni pizza all were very good. The pizza's are very thin crusted and true to the brick oven Italian "pizza"- healthy, very little fat to the pizza and chock full of arugula (the fig pizza). My husband easily... read more

I grew up in Elkhart and ate at CH in 1987. I still talk about that visit to this day. So when my wife asked me what I wanted to do for our Anniversary I said let's do the SW Michigan Wineries and Brew Pubs, stay in South Bend at the Oliver Inn and have dinner at CH.It was fabulous.... More

Our experience was excellent from start to finish! We had the pleasure of enjoying house made blends from the best ingredients in the midst of a truly beautiful garden. The live music added to the serene atmosphere, and the service was great! We will definitely be dining at the Carriage House again!

We return to the Carriage House each summer to experience one of the best settings for dining outdoors. A quite garden on one side with plenty of shade at the tables. Reservations a must due to limited seating. Fantastic food. Full bar is available. We started with a pizza appetizer. Later we ordered a Carriage burger , lamb burger, lobster... More

We were looking for a place to celebrate our recent engagement and some friends suggested The Carriage House. We were not disappointed. We enjoyed a romantic evening in a country garden setting after eating a terrific meal. Our first course was a delicious sweet corn risotto followed by a Caesar salad and the most tender flavorful filet I've ever ate.... More

Great food very tasty but you will not be full very small portions and be prepared to pay downtown Chicago prices including drinks as well..

This restaurant is not closed, as the previous review suggests - I ate here their opening week. They are now open under new ownership - same name, same classy atmosphere, same fine dining experience.

This was an excellent restaurant. Fine dinning out in the country . The only complaint we ever had is they took way too long to get the different courses. The food was always good but slow service is not good. Unfortunately they have closed. There may be a new restaurant coming in to the same location per the newspaper.

My wife and I have dined both inside and out and the food has always been delicious. Our favorite is the warm weather patio dining experience. Great surroundings with a nice selection of entrées!
