We had our wedding 6 years ago on 6/26/10 so we went back 6/26/16 for anniversary dinner! The grounds and restaurant are even more gorgeous now! Highly recommend this place! Great food too!

This was my first time dining at the Coachman Lodge, and I was not impressed. The Clams Casino were undercooked and full of sand. The potato and vegetables that came with my entrée were cold, and the Filet Mignon was terrible.

The Coachmen is by far our favorite outdoor dining place to come in the summer. We always enjoy the weekly entertainment, the large bar area, seating to accommodate groups or a private dinner. The bar accommodates about 25 persons, so it usually easy to get a seat. The watistaff, hostesses and the owners/mangers are great to work with. We continue to recommend Coachmen Lodge to all our friends and family. Thank you for yet another great dining experience.

First time at the Coachman's Lodge. Sunday dinner. Upon entering I gave my name and reservation time to the hostess . Total lack of personality and almost abrupt. She didn't seem like she wanted to be there. Both my wife and I wondered if our total experience was going to be like that. Thankfully, our waitress, who we learned started 3 weeks ago was pleasant and engaging so we were able to relax. The lack of experience of our waitress showed in some of the little things, like removing appetizer dishes but her whole attitude of helpfulness and service shows that with time she'll be one of the best at the Coachman. The food came out hot and delicious. I had veal that was done perfect and my wife had stuffed sole and because they give you big portions, she was able to take some home for lunch the next day. We were in a room with about 7 other occupied tables ranging from two to 7 people. The room was very noisy. Maybe because the ceiling was low but it did make it difficult to hold a conversation. Will we go back? Well we are considering it for a family easter dinner restraurant. We'll see

I have always had fond memories of the Coachman's. This is where we had class reunions. Now, after 46 years (yes, I graduated in 1970!) I still love going there. I have introduced my daughter to this wonderful place and a close friend. Beautiful surroundings for weddings and parties outside. Good luck and have a great meal! thank you all.
I came here for dinner with my husband and grandparents after several recommendations. We made reservations and were seated a half hour late, which was fine as they appeared busy. Once seated, we immediately ordered. Our drinks ended up coming after our appertizer a half hour later. Our meals finally came an HOUR AND A HALF after being seated. We were told by the waitress that it was a busy night. I was surprised that after such a ridiculous wait for our food, a manager never even came up to our table to apologize. The food was really good but I am hesitant to go there again and spend another $200 on a meal that may take almost two hours to come. Very disappointing.
First time here since restaurant's under new management. Something was awry in the kitchen because our server seemed nervous and kept saying our food would be out soon. When it finally arrived the prime rib was delicious and chicken marsala was ok, and baked fish was good. Very noisy but it was crowded. We checked out the outdoor seating and it looked great and the grounds were beautiful.
Coachmen's Lodge - Outdoor Dining
After having enjoyed the Coachmen's Lodge several times over the Fall/Winter, we decided to try the the Al fresco dining at Coachmen's. Needless to say, it did not disappoint. I went with my wife, my mother and my youngest son (age 7). There was a Wedding Party that had just finished taking pictures and a Reggae band coming on to entertain the outdoor diners for the evening. Our server (Kate) was fantastic. Drinks did take a while, but she apologized several times (not her fault) and explained that things were a bit slower than usual due to the wedding. From appetizers (mussels), to the main course (Al Capone Sirloin for me) right through to the desserts, everything was first class. We were able to take our son out back by the pond for some between serving "entertainment" so that certainly helped take some of the wind out of his sails. We'll certainly be going back over the summer months to come!

Was pleasantly surprised having our first dinner here. We had been here in the past for Bridal/Baby Showers, but never dinner. The service was amazing, food was some of the best I've ever eaten and portions were huge. We will be back!

First weekend of outside dining jitters. Service confused & delays were apparent including ours.
Love the New Look
I've been going to Coachmen's for years. They've come a very long way from a rustic local family-style chicken restaurant to their current versions. I love the new upgraded dining area. Food quality was very good and portions are generous. Menu now includes some pretty sophisticated taste combinations that are executed very well. Duck Confit Poutine was a very nice turn on comfort food and was delicious, as was the Portuguese Fried Calamari, which had a moderately spicy sauce and Chourico. Escargot were cooked perfectly. Sea Scalop, Shrimp & Lobster over fettuccine was also perfectly cooked and a huge portion for $27. Cast Iron Sirloin Steak was delicious, with Cinnamon-Chipotle Rub and Espresso Kahlua Sauce. One of our steaks was under-cooked in the middle, which was largely a non-issue, as that came back home and got reheated for another meal. Vanilla Cheesecake, Molten Lava Cake, and Creme Brulee were all very good. Overall, a very good dining experience and an excellent value.
coachman better than before
The coachman has gone through an ownership change in the last two years. The new ownership has put new life in this neighborhood restaurant. New menu, new renovations inside and out. Last year they opened an outside bar and restaurant area that is fantastic. Highly recommend. If you didnt like this place five years ago, try it again. Not the same Coachman.

We went for Mothers Day. The wine glasses were large and you were given a good size drink. The food was good served family style. There was a lot of food served, too much. My party enjoyed their meals. I ordered steak and it was kind of grisly. I would not get that again but I would go back.
My wife and I just love Coachman Lodge, especially since it has been renovated and new owners. The ambiance is amazing whether inside or outside. Everything we have tasted is fantastic. My favorite, the Salmon and my wife the veal parmesan. The attention by all staff is very nice. The owner is apt to come by the table to check on everything. He is very attentive and you can tell he really cares for everything to be exquisite. This is also a beautiful place for weddings.
Great first impression
This was our first visit to this local reimagined restaurant. We are new to the area and were looking for a nice go to restaurant where we could dine and bring friends and family also for a great meal, reasonably priced , in a casual atmosphere . The Lodge embodies all three. We ordered the grilled sirloin tips and veal saltamboca, with an app of clams casino. Both meals were perfectly cooked with fresh side salads and seasonal vegetables. Yummy clams . Cocktails and wine list is varied and reasonably priced. We will be back.
I had heard of the restaurant but had never been there. I feel most restaurants have mediocre food. We were so happy to have two great meals. I am picky about chicken piccata and this was delicious. My bf had the seafood casserole and was in heaven. We were very pleased. Our waitress was good and the portions were large. Looking forward to returning.

Large portions ! Food was delicious ! Service was outstanding !
Karen was our server. As usually she does a great job. She should be employee of the month. Not impressed with the bread/loaf they serve. How about fresh dinner rolls or italian bread with a dipping sauce. Meal is terrific. I had pork chops and had some left for the next day. Never had a problem here ever. Great service, great food.
Hidden Gem in Bellingham
We had a special dinner for friend's birthday last Saturday. we made reservation for quiet corner table near fireplace hoping not too much noisy. When we entered main dinning room,the noisy level was unbearable. we asked hostess whether she doesn't mind finding less noisy room. She lead us to refurbished "NEW BARTELET(?)" room and it was perfect. Elegant with gas fireplace on, high ceiling, giant window and beautiful,full bloomed dark pink Geranium. It was perfect evening out with perfect friends. I am not good at remembering names but all staff were superb. We are coming back soon.
Great place to dine with friends and family. Food is great and the ambiance is wonderful.
Big menu and HUGE portions
Great menu selection - everything from raw bar to Italian, escargot to osso bucco...We enjoyed generous portions of calamari and escargot to start, and a delicious dinner of chicken Francese and prime rib. The prime rib was perfectly cooked to order, and honestly one of the best I've ever tasted. the fresh veggies that came with it were actually....FRESH VEGGIES! They were perfectly cooked- still lots of crunch left - and lightly seasoned and buttered. The chicken was actually 2 huge cutlets, nicely breaded and sauced....will definitely go back to try more..
Great Saturday night spot
Had a great dinner with friends. Sat in the bar area which is a bit mote casual. Server was great. Very attentive. Between us we had the lamb chops, salmon on cedar plank, baked haddock and chicken parm. Everyone enjoyed their meals. And some of us even got to take some home. The dessert cart looked great but we were all stuffed from the meal and the bread that was served
Went out with friends for dinner. Portions were big. Food was excellent. Service left something to be desired.Not up to par.

Excellent menu choices, little pricey but good experience.
This was our first time at The Coachman. We were seated by a very nice host who told us our waiter would be right with us. We waited over 10 minutes before our waiter appeared at which point we place our drink orders, appetizer and dinner order. It took the waiter about 10 minutes to bring Us our drinks. He forgot. The appetizer came quickly. We had to flag people down to have our water refilled. Our dinner arrived 1 hour later. Once again we asked for drinks and had to wait. Prime rib was good. Pork chops were ok. Pork chops were on top of potatoes and veggies covered in a sauce...looked like something you'd get in a mess hall. I looked at the reviews after eating there and found a number of people complained about the service. Definitely not worth the money.
Visited with 2 friends taking advantage of the Four Course Special for $21.99 on a Thursday evening. This special is only offered Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday. It was well worth it. We all decided on the Flank Steak which proved to be a sumptuous delight. It was cooked perfectly. I highly recommend it.
Highly over-priced and poor food and service
My dish of veal amalfi had no seasoning, not even salt, and was drowned in melted mozzarella; a real grease bomb. My wife's filet was mediocre at best and at $35 was about twice what it should have been for the quality and the area. We had to ask for bread and a second bread plate. Glasses were not removed as they were used. This was a total ripoff. We will never go back.
Valentines day out.
Karen and Ed are great. Lobster too pricey. Not a good value. Steak and Prime rib are good choice.

Everything was very good, but the stuffed lobster is out of this world.
Tonight missed the mark
Normally the food is excellent here, but tonight they missed the mark. The flank steak was carmelized so much it seemed to have a burnt plastic coating on it. The lobster bisque must have been the bottom of the pot. It was loaded with lobster, but I would have gladly traded the lobster for better flavor and far less salt. We'll be going back because this was the first disappointment in many visits, but it won't take many misses like this to cross the Coachmen's off our list. The restaurant was very busy, but that should not be any excuse for poor food quality or presentation.

Great value for the price with a nice ambiance. Love the fire places and wood stove which provides a cozy dining experience.
Never a disappointment
The quality and consistency of the Coachmen's offerings are the reason that this has become our number one choice in restaurants. It's about a 25 minute drive for us, but well worth it.
Peter was our waiter. Great personally and wanted to please us. I went with my wife and her braother and his girl friend for New Years eve. Great food, service and atmosphere.
