The Carriage House is a wonderful jewel in the Indiana countryside. The atmosphere is charming, the service top-notch, and the food is memorable. The lemon meringue pie was almost 8 inches tall! Just off of the Indiana Tollway exit for South Bend. Can't wait to go back!

The meal was memorable in all three important dimensions: (1) food quality and preparation; (2) service and (3) ambience. The owner makes diners feel that they are guests in her home. The dining room is beautiful in any season. The food is typically locally sourced and so also seasonable. The service is cheerful and attentive. The quality of the food... More

I was introduced to the Carriage House by a friend about two years ago. What a well kept secret! It is by far the best dining experience in the area and would rival any of the fine restaurants I've dined at, East Coast, West Coast, or abroad. I can honestly say that in all the times I have dined there,... More

I consider myself quite a foodie and have dined everywhere from diners to some of the top restaurants in the world. This was by far the worst experience I have EVER had. We were seated a half hour after our reservation, it then took us an additional half hour to receive menus! After an hour, we finally received bread and... More

A couple weeks ago, my two daughters, my son-in-law and myself went to the Carriage House to celebrate both daughters's birthdays. It was an experience that will be remembered for a long time by all of us. I wanted it to be a special evening for them and it was. The owner and her staff (our server was Sabrina) made... More

We discovered a truly unique dining experience this week in a country setting near our home. The Carriage House fully deserves its four diamond rating. Celebrating our wedding anniversary we began by having cocktails in the Alfresco Patio and enjoyed the Fall gardens that surrounded us. We then were surprised to see that our indoor dining took place in a... More

We visited Carriage House for the first time last night and were absolutely delighted. From our bone-in filet and Beef Wellington Entrees, the extensive wine list, delectable desserts, to the outstanding service we couldn't have been more wowed! Thank you for a memorable birthday dinner!

A is for ambiance a plenty; this is a restaurant for those special occasions like getting engaged, a celebration of a special event. B is for bounty of food choices, wines, mixed drinks and desserts. The menu is "uptown" and will appeal to a foodie. C is for courtesy shown by the servers, bartender and owner all who welcome you... More

We have eaten at the Carriage House many times over the years, but this was the first time we sat outdoors. The weather was beautiful which which made for a excellent atmosphere. The food is always good and the Chef's pizza (with figs and Gouda) was excellent. Our server was professional and pleasant which was a pleasant change from our... More

We had the loveliest time at the Carriage House for our Mother and Fathers 60th Anniversary. Dinner was fantastic and the desserts heavenly. Especially the meringe pie! The garden was a beautiful setting for our family pictures and the patio looked like it could be a perfect outdoor setting. Thank you for having us!
