Nice home town place.... we came later, made reservations, but service wasn't ideal for the bar. I'm sure Covid staffing plays into this a bit.

I ordered the Prime Rib, which was excellent. My wife had the Grilled Swordfish, which was very fresh and perfectly cooked. Our server was excellent as well. The only two things that we considered mediocre (not bad) were the Lobster Bisque and side of Rice. The bisque, though flavorful with adequate lobster meat, was a little too thick and had a heavy taste, and the for the rice, Basmati would have been preferred. Other than those two minor preferences, overall the food was excellent and we would highly recommend this restaurant.

Good menu (options were reduced due to Covid) enhanced with a well rounded specials list.
An enthusiastic and very hard working staff (an even greater necessity due to Covid)

My daughters and I have gone to the Horse N Carriage for several years.. It's our perfect place to meet and unwind after a week of work. The food is excellent and we can always count on consistent quality. It's a friendly atmosphere, not so large that you feel like just another person in a crowd. All waitresses are efficient and friendly. We love it and look forward to our time there!

My dad ordered the veal parmigiano and he said it was the worse one he's ever eaten. He took maybe 2 bites and didn't take the leftovers home and still paid 21.00 for it because he doesn't like to complain. If I was the waitress I would have definitely seen he didn't eat it and didn't take it home that he probably didn't like it and would have taken it off the bill but she did not. We will probably never go again sadly.

The onion rings were great as I had remembered. My girlfriend and me had not been to the restaurant in several years. I had haddock which was OK but on the best and she had the steak tips which were also not the best. The rice with the tips was not a hit with her at all.

Horse N' Carriage has been my favorite restaurant for more than 20 years! From appetizers to dessert, the food is always excellent - so good that we ordered curbside pickup weekly when indoor dining was not allowed due to the pandemic. Frequently, one entree will provide two meals. The waitstaff is also excellent! They are friendly and truly want their customers to enjoy their dining experience. Bar seating is limited, but are our favorite seats in the house as we watch Junior mixing cocktails while bantering with everyone. You can join their email list to receive their daily specials menu. I have a few favorites that I absolutely have to have when they're on that menu!
