“Wonderful Thanksgiving Dinner”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

Had not been here before but did lots of research in planning our first-ever "eat out" Thanksgiving Dinner (or, should I say, Supper) during our holiday weekend getaway. We made the right choice. Very nice selection, warm environment, nice staff (especially the owner). And, very reasonably priced holiday buffet. I can't speak to the general menu as this was a specific buffet but everything we had - ESPECIALLY the sweet potato casarole - was wonderful. Especially appreciative of the extra steps they took to delight my daughter with a special desert selection.

“Would have liked to try it....”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

We showed up early on Sunday night around 5:30, there were only two cars in the parking lot. We went in and although it was almost completely empty, the owner told us that he couldn't seat us without reservations. He told us that he had to order and prepare the right amount of food and have appropriate staff to serve us, otherwise we might be unhappy with the experience, so reservations are required. He said if we came back in two hours, he could make a reservation and seat us (not sure where he could find the additional food to buy and prepare in that time, but oh well....). He was kind enough to let us use the facilities and look around the restaurant. It's a beautiful restaurant, and the menu looked scrumptious, but we don't get down this way very often, so I'm not sure when we'll get the chance to try it. We found it from a sign posted on the nearby highway - it would have been helpful if it said "reservations required" instead of just "reservations" with a phone number.

“It is the small things that count !”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

We decided to try Carriage and Horses for our 34th anniversary. We had the salmon scallops and shrimp on a bed of wild rice. It was very good. You can have your entree cooked spicy just make sure you tell your waitress Incase she doesn't ask. We had a wonderful dark green salad with ginger dressing...delicious! Our meal ended with coffee and pecan chocolate dessert. They had music playing in the sound system which was great but then it got better when live musicians got on stage. The owner came over and chatted with us and offered us glasses of 20yr. old port to celebrate and end our meal. We had never had 20 yr. old wine and it was great. The owner escorted us out and offered to take our picture.(which we had forgotten to do). Very very lovely evening!

“Outstanding Food and Service, A Very Special Place, The Perfect Host”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

What a unique place this is! We felt so special after supper here. Dahger is quite simply the perfect host. Romantic music was playing in the background. Dinner rolls were some of the best we ever had. We shared a shrimp cocktail appetizer and the shrimp were fresh, cold and tasty. My wife had the scallops and rice. I had the prime rib. Both were outstanding! Tiramisu from Italy and coffee for dessert. Both great. Our server was outstanding as well. The atmosphere inside is romantic and classy but not stuffy. Romantic dinners would be great here as well as special occasions in his larger dining room. One of the best supper experiences we ever had. God bless you Dahger!

“Nice Ambiance, Great Food”
Reviewed October 23, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

My husband and I went to Carriage & Horses Restaurant while visiting The Lodge and Spa at Callaway Gardens. What a pleasant surprise! The food was really good. I had salmon and my husband had trout. Both were served with fresh vegetables and a generous salad. my white wine was chilled to perfection and the overall meal was a real delight. Can't wait to go back!
