Decent country food

About half the food was really good. Sent back some cold corn-on-the-cob and unseasoned green beans. Really enjoyed the lemon pepper chicken and Cajun rice. The yeast rolls were good but not served hot and the veg soup was indistinguishable from Campbell's though it was served directly from the... read more

We went for breakfast one morning while staying at the Talley Ho Inn and ordered the special, which was a ham, cheese and egg omelet and it was HUGE! When I joked to our waitress that there must be at least 3 eggs she said there was. Our omelets were filled with delicious ham and cheese. We got grits and... More

We eat there where we stay at the Talley Ho, because it's right next door, and because you get a 10% discount when you show your room key. The food isn't anything amazing, however it's very homey and the staff are very sweet! They are closed in the Winter months, so keep that in mind when visiting. Last time we... More

This is one of our favorite places to eat. Once I was coming off an eight mile hike, and all I could think about was Carriage House sweet tea and buffet. Get the buffet, and come on Friday night if you can for the seafood buffet.

Nothing spectacular. We had a decent lunch. The burger was decent but the deep fried pickles weren't properly breaded and came out looking kind of scary but tasted decent.

We went to Look Rock on the Foothills Parkway then followed up with a perfect lunch in Townsend at the Carriage House Restaurant. The buffet was great with 3 meats, salad bar, homemade rolls and homemade deserts on the desert bar. Our server took good care of us and the price was very good. This will be our new place... More
