Been going here for years, because it is convenient during our stay. Our waitress is friendly. They have a buffet for every meal, but we started ordering from the menu. We like their oatmeal and that is not offered on the buffet. Maine blueberries and...More

The restaurant was dated and really worn, especially the carpet. Bathroom outside scary. Food average. The staff seemed to gather in a side room and just sit. We waited for our bill. The salad had brown tips. I would not recommend

My wife and I have been eating here for years and have never had anything but excellent service and consistently good food. We always stop at the Carriage House whenever we go to Gatlinburg and have stayed in Townsend several times over the years.

We ate here many times and always left full and happy. The All You Can Eat days were my favorite. I hope they still have it if I get to go back.

Yummy southern comfort food-chicken and dumplings, fried chicken, potato salad, three bean salad, carrot cake. No one dish was gourmet, but the meal as a whole was outstanding- fresh, hot, well prepared and with attentive wait staff. Closing this Monday Tuesday and Wednesday, to open...More
