The Carriage House Restaurant located in the F.M. Kirby Carriage House at Paper Mill Playhouse features seasonal American cuisine, and we are open 2 1/2 hours prior to most performances. For pre-theater dining, we offer price fixed menus in the dining rooms, and custom crafted cocktails, fine wines by the glass, and appetizers and desserts at the Bar. Reservations are highly recommended — click above or call 973.315.1707 and leave a message to make yours today.  Newly opened in 2018, The Loft is located on the 2nd floor of the restaurant and is the perfect place for light snacks and custom crafted cocktails before the show.

In May of 2020 the restaurant opened for curbside pick up with an expansion to outdoor dining quickly following in June.  Soon after that Paper Mill’s outdoor Brookside Cabaret series brought Broadway talent and Paper Mill favorites back to the theater for live performance.  The cabaret series was so popular it was extended twice, once in September and again in October with the addition of weekly Rocktober performances.  Currently, the restaurant is closed for the winter.
