Very delicious food! Great service! We were told Riverstone was the place to go, so we went and were very disappointed. We had breakfast 2 days at Carriage House and dinner 1 day, it was excellent. So glad we ate here, very good down home cooking. We stayed at the Talley Ho Inn and got 10% off our meals, it... More

We had 2 meals here during our recent visit to Townsend...a Friday lunch and a Saturday dinner. Both times we got the buffet and it was excellent. All of their salad dressings are homemade except for the honey mustard and truly, the ranch is to die for. I'm kicking myself for not buying a gallon from them. The buffet is... More

I thought the food was really great. It was more akin to a real home cooked meal not some commercialized restaurant. It's not 5 star dining it's a little local place with normal food, don't walk in expecting perfection and you will love it too. Some stuff you might love and other things you might not ... Eat what you... More

We didn't know anything about this restaurant before we stopped and we were pleasantly surprised! The workers were extremely friendly. They had a very nice lunch buffet of salads, soup, several meats, and vegetables. They also had desserts. The buffet was good and very reasonably priced. I would highly recommend eating at the Carriage House if you are visiting Townsend.

Ate dinner there, and had the buffet. The salad bar portion of the buffet was quite adequate, with a nice selection of raw veggies and pre-made salads, though lettuce was the only greens; addition of spinach or mixed greens would have helped. On the hot bar only the fried fish (which was supposed to be grouper, but very much resembled... More

Open later than most in the area we were desperate for a place to eat. Inexpensive buffet. Not a lot of choices, the fried chicken was good. That's about it
