Food - Okay / Service - Lacking

Not a Great Experience. We read the many reviews but decided to give it a chance anyway (only because the Trailhead Steak Restaurant had over an hour wait). No wait at Carriage House - not many cars in the parking lot. That should have been a clue that maybe it wasn't so great. We all ordered... read more

Very convenient ding next to the Talley Ho Lodge. Food is good and you get a lot of it. Very relaxed atmosphere. I think we lucked out with our timing as most of the tourist had gone home by now. Was no rushing or over crowed areas. I'd go back again.

Ate here twice while on vacation, once for breakfast and once for dinner. Both times we had the buffet and found it to be adequate. The buffet is somewhat small compared to other restaurants I've been to. Nobody in our party had any complaints but none of the food wowed me. I'd go back, but I wouldn't expect a memorable... More

I recently visited the Carriage House with my family and I have to say that since my first visit we have been back quite a few times, I honestly couldn't tell you which is better the food or the service. They have delicious food and a very welcoming family environment. I definitely look forward to my family get togethers at... More

When visiting the Townsend area, be sure to stop in to the Carriage House restaurant. During the summer and fall season, they serve a buffet lunch and dinner. The Sunday lunch buffet is not to be missed, especially if you want to feel like you've just eaten at your grandmother's house! The food is hot, freshly prepared and, best of... More

We got to the Carriage House right at the beginning of lunch and decided to try the buffet. There was a small salad bar with the usual lettuce, coleslaw, cherry tomatoes looked like they were starting to spoil so I didn't try those, peaches, cottage cheese. Not really a good selection of toppings. The hot buffet had sauerkraut and sausage,... More

We had dinner here on our first night in Townsend. They had a dinner buffet for 11.99 but we chose to order off the menu. My husband had a chicken breast served over a rice pilaf, and I had the fried chicken. Both included a trip to the salad bar. The rolls served with dinner were excellent. We had more... More
