My father-in law introduced us to the Carriage House over 20 yrs ago and it remains our top choice today when visiting South Bend. You will not find a finer restaurant in the area. From the food, to the wine, to the atmosphere, to the service, everything is top notch. You will not be disappointed.

The Carriage House is one of our favorite little "escapes" in the South Bend area. I say "escape" due to fact it's in South Bend but feels as though your are at a farm house far away from civilization surrounded by beautiful gardens.My husband and I love to sit outside on their patio among the gardens for more casual fare...

Super food and service. Eating outside was very enjoyable. Highly recommend to local people or out of town visitors on sporting weekends.

We have been to the carriage house several times and the ambience and the food were excellent. The restaurant has an intimate setting that is perfect for a romantic night or a quiet business setting. The service is top notch with attention paid to the smallest details. The prices make this a place that we reserve for special occasions.

After living in the area for several years and heard so much about this place we decided to give it a try. The property and setting is very nice. Staff well trained and professional. The food was good but overrated in some respects. I got the oysters for appetizer and was a little disappointed. My wife and I both loved... More

We go to the Carriage House for special personal occasions because dining there is the ultimate culinary experience. Beginning with the special "pate and pickles plate", through the delicious appetizers to the melt in your mouth main courses, the food (and service) is the finest we have experienced. I took my Phoenix-based boss there one evening and he proclaimed the... More

I recently visited South Bend (my hometown) and took my two daughters and a friend to the Carriage House for dinner. We sat in the lovely garden and our server was attentive, helpful and very pleasant. We had several dishes and shared. We had a pizza (that is only served in the garden), the scallops and duck. They were all... More

I came to the Carriage House anticipating a great meal and left with the eager desire for more of their exquisite offerings. I value indoor dining, but love when the opportunity to sit outside surrounded by the very garden the Chef prepares from and the beauty of nature's poignantly designed composition. We started with Scallops that could certainly suffice as... More

This was not our first visit and we love going back . Each time it is a delight from our arrival at the beautiful grounds to the welcoming staff and exceptional food and service by a well trained staff in the front of the house. In the back of the house , a kitchen staff that prepares food fit for... More

For a special occasion recently, my husband and I enjoyed an expertly prepared dinner al fresco at the Carriage House. Surrounded by beautiful gardens, we might as well have been in Europe! The ambiance was the same! The restaurant owner and staff go out of their way to be friendly, but not overly friendly, and to serve the best quality... More
