I've been coming to the Carriage House for years, loved it; quaint, lovely people, good food and service. It is no more. If I hadn't been here before the new owners then I must at least say the owner/partner was very nice but very busy....More

I can't agree with the self described "Blue collar" reviewer who posted earlier. He wasn't "Tricked" for God's sake. It's a new owner not MTVs "Catfish". I think any issues with the service will work themselves out as they get their bearings. Our support servers...More

The four of us decided to give this wonderful restaurant a try with the new owners. Gone is the welcoming fireplace, gone is the warmth, white walls, no art work...sterile and lacking in ambience. Food was very good, and that’s the saving grace. I wish...More

Food was great. Service fantastic but the second floor was SO noisy we were actually yelling across the table at each other to be heard. Management: please install some sound dampeners in the ceiling. Once you do, you’ll have the perfect restaurant.

The owners of Louie’s in Portsmouth just opened the doors on this new version of The Carriage House. We dined upstairs at the bar. The cocktails were delicious - we had a couple of margaritas and a couple of drink specials. For food we ordered...More

We were in Rye, NH for one of our first destinations up Maine's coast and stopped by the Carriage House for dinner. They were pretty busy... The service wasn't the best, frankly a bit "rude." We were super rushed during our meal as if we...More

I am local to Paul’s, my wife and I are frequent visitors. Downstairs by the fire is really nice although I prefer upstairs by a window looking out at Jenness Beach or just sitting at the upstairs bar. Great staff here. You can’t go wrong.

I'll driven by this restaurant for years and years and kept thinking that someday I'd actually eat there. It's cute on the outside but nothing that truly would indicate what fantastic food and service you'll find on the inside. I met a friend there on...More

This is an upscale beach view restaurant. Food is fabulous. Service is impeccable. Beautiful decor inside. Drinks are very good. Parking is very tight. Probably have to park on the road somewhere. For a special night out, this is the place to go.
