The Story of The Carriage House

Long famous for its Southern cuisine, The Carriage House Restaurant has been the site of many memorable weddings, rehearsal dinners, receptions and other special events since 1946.  In days past, folks clamored for the fried chicken and buttery, silver dollar-sized biscuits.  We still serve those staples, but thanks to Chef Bingo Starr our menu is delightfully varied.  The Carriage House offers a Blue Plate Special Wednesday through Friday.  The specials themselves vary from month to month, but can be generally described in categories; ‘Soup-Salad-Sandwich,’ ‘Southern Comfort Food,’ and ‘Fresh Gulf Seafood.’

Sunday Brunch is an incredibly arrayed buffet that not only carries their world-famous fried chicken, but specialties like Poached Salmon, Crawfish Etouffee, and Thai Curry Shrimp Bisque.

The Carriage House carries a regular menu of salads, sandwiches, entrees, and desserts as well.

Weddings and Other Special Events

The Carriage House is supremely suited for handling special events.  We often handle events as large as Grand Balls and as small as bridal luncheons.  Adjacent to the main dining room is "The Queen's Room," a smaller dining area that perfectly suits meetings, luncheons and other more intimate get-togethers.  We are happy to recommend a menu for your event, but Chef Bingo will delight in helping you customize something to more suit your tastes and requirements.

The antebellum homes Stanton Hall and Longwood may also be reserved for wedding celebrations and other grand events.  In fact, both historic sites have been featured at and websites.
