Dinner for six with our adult children at The Carriage House was wonderful.

The evening was made more perfect by the service meeting all our needs immediately but unobtrusively allowing... More

Had been there before and been very happy. This visit the what I am told are the owners where having an heated argument in the bar. It kind of killed the mood. It moved in to the back where I assume the kitchen is and seem to get worse we heard a lot of yelling. The staff seemed embarrassed but... More

New Ownership. Not as polished as the Cotes but dedicated and eager. Food was good. Service was slow to start but improved after the appetizer.

Celebrated our anniversary with dinner at the Carriage House. From arrival the experience was delightful. The service was fantastic, the food delicious, and the evening perfect. The owner was on hand to introduce himself, make sure we were comfortable and pleased throughout the meal and to give us his knowledge on the courses and drinks available. The grounds were magical...

Food was excellent, but did not understand from the menu that our beef Wellington was actually a gourmet burger. While delicious and rich, the cost was much higher than I would normally expect for a burger and fries.

the outdoor setting of the restaurant was very nice-they had a jazz trio playing the night we were there the food was very good my only suggestion would be to have a little more extensive menu for the outdoor section
