When visiting the Townsend area, be sure to stop in to the Carriage House restaurant. During the summer and fall season, they serve a buffet lunch and dinner. The Sunday lunch buffet is not to be missed, especially if you want to feel like you've just eaten at your grandmother's house! The food is hot, freshly prepared and, best of... More

We got to the Carriage House right at the beginning of lunch and decided to try the buffet. There was a small salad bar with the usual lettuce, coleslaw, cherry tomatoes looked like they were starting to spoil so I didn't try those, peaches, cottage cheese. Not really a good selection of toppings. The hot buffet had sauerkraut and sausage,... More

We had dinner here on our first night in Townsend. They had a dinner buffet for 11.99 but we chose to order off the menu. My husband had a chicken breast served over a rice pilaf, and I had the fried chicken. Both included a trip to the salad bar. The rolls served with dinner were excellent. We had more... More

We went here because they advertised a Friday night seafood buffet and my daughter wanted to try it, the parking lot was packed so our hopes were high. The decor is a little dated but it looked clean and the hostess was very friendly. We sat and ordered drinks and headed to the buffet. It consisted of a small very... More

We stopped at Carriage House Saturday morning on our way to the National Park. We have eaten here for years, and have always received good food, and exceptional service. I can honestly say after Saturday, it would take a miracle to get us to return. We waited 20 minutes to be seated, the restaurant was over half empty, so it... More

This is a family restaurant with good food. They have a buffet offered with desserts and off the menu items. We have never been disappointed by the service or the food. Will continue to come back. I believe they offer take out chicken too. They close after Thanksgiving for 3 months , this is their winter schedule.

Southern Buffet food. The Buffet was small with little choices. The fried chicken was good and obviously the main draw. The rest of the food was average at best. For the price I would go elsewhere. The servers were overworked for the amount of people at the restaurant. They worked hard but were stretched thin.
