Beef Tenderloin, Crab Cake with Bearnaise Sauce and tender Asparagus were the stars here; also prepared expertly was Beef Short Ribs with Polenta. Hostess and wait staff were pleasant and attentive, and Sara who waited on us did an excellent job overall. A bit of a drive for us but we plan to return.

Perfect. The service Tina provided was personal and professional. Team effort in every way. Hostness was pleasant and helpful. Restaurant week was a great way to sample kitchens ability. Filet and short ribs preceded by crab and tuna. Excellent salads. Great old fashioned and wines by glass. Bread amazing. carrot cake delicious. PIANIST incredible.

Food was good. Waitress was great. But it took over 45 minutes to get our meal, and then it was not correct. Very frustrating experience.

We went for the Restaurant Week experience and I can say it was delicious! Not many other diners, so it was quiet. Our server was so nice and courteous. A little out of the way, but only 30 minutes from Frederick. Definitely try it out!

It’s always a good place to eat. The service was a little slower than usual, but the piano player and her selections were excellent !

The Carriage House was fully booked, but we still were seated quickly, the first thing to hit the table was the very popular home baked loaf of bread ( still hot )the lovely Valentines Day Special dinner was served quickly. It could not have been any better. Five Gold Stars.

We appreciated the excellent service. The food was good although my husband’s lunchtime special prime rib was very very tough and as a result he did not eat it. The restaurant kindly did not charge us for his order.

I had lunch with 4 friends. The Carriage House was lovely to look at and beautifully decorated for the holidays. The food was delicious ( I had the crabcake.) Our waitress was very nice, attentive, happily took pictures of us when asked. We all had a wonderful time. Thank you!

We spent an enjoyable evening dining at Carriage House for my wife's birthday. We have returned here year after year for birthdays and anniversaries as well as just to dine. Both my wife and myself find the food well prepared, service is always efficient and the atmosphere is lovely. My wife had the delmonico steak special and I had the chicken seasonal special, both prepared as ordered and accompanied by a couple of great sides. Their wine list is broad and we chose a lovely Shiraz to accompany the meal. Finished the meal with a piece of their red velvet cake which was good but the cake could have been a bit more moist. We'll be back for Thanksgiving and again for our anniversary at the end of December.

Excellent service even though the wait for our meal was a little longer than usual. It was worth it and we didn't mind. We always enjoy dining at Carriage House.

Food was fabulous. Pan seared scallops, delicious! Filet mignon was cooked to perfection and was melt-in-your-mouth tender. Great service. Will definitely go again.

Good food with very good service. The bacon Bbq shrimp appetizer was very good and the beef short ribs were good. The risotto with root veggies was ok but lacked seasoning. The blackberry pie was very good.

Loved the live piano music, not too loud but pleasant to have in background so you could carry on a conversation. Rose at the end for all the ladies was a nice touch even though they were a little limp. The filet was perfectly cooked but I should have chosen a different sauce, I chose mushroom gravy type and I didn't care for it, but they give you other choices. My daughters loved the crab soup and I enjoyed French onion soup flavor but there was something hard in the middle, not quite sure what it was and not sure it was suppose to be in there, it caught me by surprise. Waitress was nice and attentive even though it was a busy time. Pricing was fair

We had a great evening. Loved the soft piano music. The pace of getting served was perfect. We had rock fish and seafood scampi. Fresh and hot! We were celebrating our 57th anniversary! Awesome evening?
