The fish and chips looked delicious. I had the salmon and it was a little too done. Another friend had the chicken and pasta dish and enjoyed it. Chopped salad is yummy!
Service was fantastic !

My party of three sat in the front room between the fire place and the bar, we felt slightly closterphobic, but it went away quickly. the service and food was very good. 2 got the fish and chips, I got the grilled cheese. I was impressed and enjoyed the stay. The staff seems very midwestern friendly.

To make a couple of recommendations:
1. Dim the bright ceiling lights if not turn them off all together. The light fixture ambient lighting is very soothing!
2. Candles on the tables!
3. Frank Sinatra music!
4. Offer baked potatoes and asparagus with your filet!

You have a very pleasant restaurant and we look forward to your extended hours! Five Stars!!

My only concern was the noise level. There were only two tables in the room and it was very hard other conversations at our own table. ...not sure what to do about that....????

Service and crab cakes were great. Cute place. Was not expecting our date night to end up in a retirement community though. Don’t think we would go back.

Really nice restaurant, but it’s misleading. The establishment is in an retirement community. Decent food but not what I was expecting. Plus it’s not easy to find.

I must agree with those other reviewers who state that the Open Table listing for this "restaurant" along with the picture presented, give this listing what is likely an unintentional impression of a very fancy restaurant. This is - in fact, a restaurant within a retirement community. We reserved expecting a much different experience. Still we stayed for our Valentine's Day dinner and the food was acceptable, a bit pricey for what we received compared to had we actually gone to a fancier place. The service was fine, the atmosphere basically like you'd expect in an Old Country Buffet. We could tell others showing up for the Prix Fixe Valentine's menu were similarly disappointed, so it would be good if they updated their listing. I am sure based on lots of folks for who this is there cup of tea, they will continue to do well without lassoing in some of us who expected something different. Again, nice folks - just not as advertised.

A group of friends and I enjoyed another lovely evening at the Coach House Restaurant Friday. Great food, service, and live music.

We shared three wonderful starters. The Municipal Brew Works beer battered onion rings were so tender and flavorful. The Korean glazed fried cauliflower topped with mixed greens, carrots, radish, red cabbage and sesame seeds was exceptional. The delicate, house made chicken sausage in puff pastry, served with mustard sauce and topped with 80 Acres micro greens was delightful.

For my entree, I enjoyed the "fall-off the bone tender" braised pork shank very much. It was accompanied by tender acorn squash, barley, and apple with a hint of fennel and arugula, all accented by a lovely blue cheese cream.

The meal ended with a sweet and slightly tart pear and cranberry crisp with cinnamon ice cream from Hamilton's Village Parlor. Perfect!

This lovely meal was thoughtfully prepared, beautifully presented, and served by a wonderful staff. Another lovely evening of great food, conversation, and music at the Coach House Restaurant.

Typically we love the Coachhouse but this time we were very disappointed. I ordered Balsamic on my salad but got sweet and sour. When I asked the waitress she told me it was Balsamic. It wasn’t, I know what Balsamic Vinaigrette looks and tastes like. This wasn’t. My wife’s fish was way over cooked. Just a bad night I guess as there was a big event in the other room. So our meals didn’t get the attention they typically would. But we do love the Coachhouse.

My food tasted good but it was not hot. My mother hardly touched her food so I know she didn’t like it, even though she didn’t complain. We had to ask for more coffee twice before the waitress remembered it.

Enjoyed our meal very much. Staff was attentive but did not rush us, (a very good thing for us). Quiet, enjoyed that we could have a conversation and actually hear each other without hearing everyone else. This will be a monthly stop for sure.

My friends and I enjoyed a lovely evening of foods and wines at the Coach House Saturday night. The dining room and each table were beautifully decorated for this special event, the Harvest Moon Wine Dinner. It was a very welcoming and special atmosphere.

Chef Chris, Cody, Alex, and Hebert prepared a fabulous and unique 5 course dinner experience that was expertly paired with Lapis Luna wines. The food was so flavorful and beautifully presented. The wait staff were upbeat, attentive, and helpful.

The first course was tender escargot de bourgogne with fresh herbs, garlic and butter. The second course presented was carrot and golden beet salad with purple carrot, golden beet, walnuts and coriander yogurt dressing. The third course was a perfectly grilled venison with asparagus, tomato, blue corn eggplant, yellow bell peppers, and arugula with raspberry balsamic. The fourth course was a tender roasted stuffed rabbit with blueberry, sage, pistachio sausage accompanied by wild mushroom risotto. The fifth course was a decadent blackberry chocolate torte with blackberry preserves and creme fraiche.

We look forward to future dining experiences at the Coach House. We appreciate the spectacular menu offerings prepared by the talented Chef Chris and his team.

This is a club retaurant in a retirement community. Might be fine for those purposes, but for regular dining g no way. Food was not up to par of typical dining out experience at any level. Beware!!!
