My wife and I have been eating here for years and have never had anything but excellent service and consistently good food. We always stop at the Carriage House whenever we go to Gatlinburg and have stayed in Townsend several times over the years.

We ate here many times and always left full and happy. The All You Can Eat days were my favorite. I hope they still have it if I get to go back.

Yummy southern comfort food-chicken and dumplings, fried chicken, potato salad, three bean salad, carrot cake. No one dish was gourmet, but the meal as a whole was outstanding- fresh, hot, well prepared and with attentive wait staff. Closing this Monday Tuesday and Wednesday, to open...More

We have eaten here several times. They have a great breakfast but the lunch / dinner buffet is the best. It’s down home country cooking at its finest. My favorite item on the buffet is the fried catfish. Not greasy, not fishy just perfect!

Went once for breakfast buffet and once for Friday night buffet. Prices are reasonable and if the food is fresh, it is very good. If it has been sitting there for awhile, not so much.

Stayed at Tally Ho next door with motorcycle friends. Decided to do quick breakfast with the buffet, can't say anything good about it, biscuits old, eggs tasted like powdered eggs. Everything seems like had set out or leftover. If we ever go there again, will...More

Seated as we can into the door but had to wait for drinks (not even a water was brought while trying to decide). Another table seated 5-10 minutes after got their drinks immediately and started serving themselves from the bar. Only one on our party...More

A person can order from the menu or go through the buffet. Either way the food is well seasoned and if appropriate served hot. Love eating breakfast there. Their omelets are perfect.

As a last resort, we ate here....and we will never eat here again. The buffet was terrible-cold hospital like food. The green beans and corn tasted like they were straight out of a can--no seasoning , or flavor...We tried the chicken which was so dry,...More
