“Cheers Kind of Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Re-opened a year ago under new management, the Carriage House tavern is an upscale version of the previous roadhouse...with better food and a more mature crowd. The owner John has a long history in the restaurant business - a typical Central PA Greek restauranteur who cares about quality of the food and how people perceive his business, he actually spends time with customers, asking about the food and service. . Bartenders Jolly and Tyson are not only attentive, but make everybody feel welcome. Like Cheers, 'everybody seems to know your name' after your first visit. Friendly crowds come in for Fri night kereooke. As to the food, try the crab filled portabella mushrooms! or fried haddock (big as your head). Their wings are great, also, if you're looking for just a bar snack.

“Two trys, won't be back for third”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

Our second visit was worse than our first. We thought we would give them a break, being new - but when we ordered the vegetable of the day, and it came out - canned cheese over broccoli - that was it. When the high point of a meal is the bun, there's just not much else to say except try someplace else.
