The Carriage House Philadelphia
A group of resident ducks waddle across The Carriage House's grassy front yard, hoping to be fed a few crumbs as diners shuffle in to fill up on homestyle meals or shuffle out— delightfully sated—possibly with a purchased bag of duck food in hand. Interacting with the environment is just one of the pleasant surprises at the restaurant—where diners enjoy meals at tables in the main dining area or in one of the private rooms overlooking a lake while enjoying entrees such as deviled crab, veal parmigiana, or Delmonico steak.
Lunch and Friday-night dinner buffets feature discounted daily cuisine specials, and sunset dinners every Tuesday–Saturday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. feature lighter entree portions with soup, a salad, sides, and housemade desserts such as apple crisp or bread pudding. A traditional three-course afternoon tea service brings an air of yesteryear as guests dine on sandwiches and scones on fine china. Guests can also book party rooms for celebrations such as birthdays, baby showers, or bathing in presents.
