When we walk in, there are panoramic pictures and pictures that are a view from the sky of the Coachman over the years. They remind me of the pictures my aunt and uncle had taken of their farm every year in the eighties. The Coachman really hasn't changed much. The only difference are the cars in the parking lot in each picture. We get seated immediately and start going through the menu.
The restaurant is definitely a throw back to a previous era. There was a live band playing outside on the patio. We couldn't really hear it from our table. People that looked like the late 20's- 40's crowd kept going in and out the door to see the band.That did get a little old after an hour of it.
The server was very kind and knew what she was doing. It's always awesome to get a good server!!! The bathrooms were clean.
Some of the atmosphere does feel a little dates, but if you take that away, you loose a little of the restaurant's charm. If we end up in the Plainfield area any time soon and need to eat, we will eat at the Coachman again! The prime rib was worth it!
