    The service was excellent. The food was tasty but you are paying for the ambiance and view. I was a bit disappointed in my seasonal caprese salad- but I should have known the tomatoes were not going to be of perfect ripeness in late September.

    Epic meal! Truly a special dining experience and yes, worth every bit! Service was lovely from Bartender Jake and later, with Carson! We enjoyed Pheasant in Strudel- a unique and quite wonderfully inspired dish! Also, the Veal Piccata with basil Alfredo rivaled Italian preparations and presentation! Thank you!

    What a wonderful experience. I've always enjoyed lunch on the veranda. Since the veranda is closed for the season we opted for an early dinner seating. The waiter was amazing and steak was perfectly cooked and the morels were a wonderful added treat. I can also recommend the French onion soup. A perfect end to a perfect day on the island.

    My wife and I enjoyed a very nice dinner on the patio yesterday. The service, food, ambiance, etc. were all very good. Only issue were the prices... which were to be expected - quite high. But nothing in life is free, especially high quality.

    We have eaten here many times since 1976. The food is very good. This time the veal picata was somewhat dry. The spaghetti squash had an off taste- kind of a petroleum flavor.

    I had booked our reservation four months ago and called twice in-between to be certain we were all set. I have enjoyed dining here from time to time since 1980. This was to be a very special meal and a treat for my husband, myself and my 82 year old mother. Even the day prior,? my seating was guaranteed. We arrived and the main dining room was occupied by a wedding reception. We were ushered to a side room. The window seat (we requested) was freezing cold as the dloor was open. We chose a seat in the middle of the room. There was yet a smaller wedding reception which our waiter was responsible for in addition to our table. Fast forward, my whitefish was the smallest piece and most expensive I’ve ever eaten in a restaurant, potatoes were under cooked. $13 for hot fudge ice cream puff dessert you think they’d garnish with whipped cream and cherry. Waiter expressed that it was a very generous portioned dessert more than ample for two, no it was not impressive by size whatsoever. 20 min for second glass of wine. Food was not hot llike I’d expect for a fine dining restaurant. No refill on coffee either.

    We enjoyed drinks before on the dock, watching boats go by while we waited for our table. We were seated at 7:30. We had an unbelievable meal, with a fabulous waiter, “Carter from San Diego, CA”, who made this our best dining experience in many years. Good wine list. Good local beer selection. The Mediterranean Pasta & Diver Scallops were delicious. Visiting the Carriage House has made us want to come back and stay at the Hotel Iroquois.

    One of the best dining experiences ever! Sat outside, waterside. Beautifully set table. Great cocktail/wine list. Went with one (or two) drinks: great Bellini martini and well mixed Manhattan. We skipped appetizers (too much fudge during the day). Had a terrific Mediterranean seafood dish and an enormous bay scallops dish. Everything cooked to perfection. Topped off with their signature homemade lemon meringue pie. From the greeting to the finish it was a great evening in a beautiful setting. But the over-the-top experience was delivered by our waiter, Nashoba. Not sure we have ever had as good a server. He was the best! The Carriage House is a higher priced oasis at Mackinac Island, and worth every penny!

    We ended up dining at the Carriage House for three meals and each one was excellant. In addition to the food, our server, Alexis provided such great services that we requested her for our final dinner. Will most certainly dine there again when we return to the island next year.
