I recently had the pleasure of dining at the Carriage House just before the New Year. I usually go by myself, which can be awkward and sometimes embarrassing but not at the Carriage House. The beauty of the Carriage House is its location. You are out in the country, it is quiet, removed from the daily grind. Yes, it is... More

This has always been a favorite of ours. Fine dining and very professional in a unique setting. In the summer they have a beautiful garden to walk through and tables to eat outside with entertainment on weekends. We were looking forward to visiting again soon, however, I read in the paper that at the present it is closed and for... More

I don't understand why people go here. I would much rather enjoy a great meal at LaSalle Grill for a nice evening out.

Guests visit the THE CARRIAGE HOUSE DINING ROOM & GARDENS because they know what quality is and understand you get what you pay for. Though we understand that many people are quite satisfied with copies which have all the appearances of the original, but at a discounted price, one must realize that copies never have the taste, texture, and nutritional...

We went to the Carriage House last Saturday for dinner. We've been going at least a couple of times of year for more than 30 years and have always had a great meal and a delightful experience. It's our favorite area fine dining restaurant. One of the best times of year is Christmas! The restaurant is beautifully and tastefully decorated,... More

My sister came into town for a couple of days to visit for the holidays. I've always wanted to experience a meal here so I made reservations. We arrived around 7:00pm and were quickly seated. It was decorated beautifully for the Holidays. Rodney, our server did an outstanding job not only serving us but explaining our options as well. Every... More

We have been to the Carriage House for various celebrations over the past 10 years. It had been several years since our last visit. Last evening from the moment we stepped through the door we were welcomed. This time of year it is difficult for a party of 2 not to get lost in the shuffle of Christmas parties. We... More

I was visiting family in South Bend and we decided to try this restaurant. What a wonder surprise. We had an outstanding meal. My Steak Diane was "to die for". Melt in your mouth flavor. We tried all courses and were so pleased with everything. Rodney, our server, was pleasant and personable. The decor was warm and inviting. It was... More

My husband and I went here for our anniversary dinner. It was very nice, although the menu is a little old fashioned. They start off with chicken liver pate, which I do not eat, but it is nice to have an amuse bouche. I ordered the soup of the day, roasted red pepper. It tasted more like tomato but was... More

We want to this place primarily based on online reviews. Had reservations a month or so in advance. Courteous greeter. Nice small bar area with a cordial bartender. The restaurant was full. Sat down at our table in a reasonable length of time and we were served a small plate with a liver with dill pickle combination. Different and tasty.... More

I haven't been there in almost 20 years, but after visiting several major cities in Europe, we are pleased to share that the service, food and atmosphere mirrored many of the same experiences we had in Europe. The deliberate unhurried pace of the meal set the experience apart from others in town. The wine list was second to none and... More
