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!

Not only does the interior need updating, but the food has remained the same for years. Although it is ok, there is nothing new and/or innovative to make me want to return.

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...

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
