We like this place for dinner, but had never been for brunch. We sat outside yesterday and got perfectly delicikous brunch: eggs benedict, another egg dish with delicious pork belly, and very nice huevos rancheros. Friendly, quick service. The one thing that could be improved is the coffee, but honestly, it's a minor quibble.

More than just the typical pub fare menu, with good food and attentive service. We had a reservation for a party of six, and they seated us right away. Located in Davis Square, so parking at peak times can be a challenge.

My friend took me here, insisting they had one of the best brunches. I totally agreed! We started off with some brunch cocktails, and I loved that they weren't just your typical mimosas or Bloody Mary, but other boozy coffee cocktails too! Their food options were the same- such a great variety! The service was very prompt and everything was... More

This is a staple of my experience in Davis Square. They consistently have excellent food of a variety that will please everyone, including dietary restriction options. I've taken to bringing visitors to the area here as a rule, since it does not disappoint. The local beer draft list is awesome, and they serve delicious cocktails. The wait usually isn't too...

Love the appetizers and menu items I've had. They have cellared beer selections, as well as a long list on tap. Burger is easily top of the list in the area, and I've been out for quite a few different burger selections. Nice enough vegetarian options as well.

Hubby and I came out for dinner tonight and wanted to try Five Horse for the beer. But good grief the flatbread pizza was phenomenal. I had the French Kiss. It was so good. And a great beer selection!!

Maybe it's my fault and I'm simply unlucky... The first time I came here to eat there was such a terrible smell that I escaped without even asking for a table... the second time we got a table and it was not smelly anymore, but the burgers were not properly cooked (generally "overcooked" even when a medium-rare was asked), and...

Went here on a Friday night for dinner. Wanted to go somewhere in the popular Davis Square area and this was recommended by my daughter. The staff was very friendly and accommodating including changes we made to our original reservation (and reservations seem to be recommended here). The first thing I noticed was that it was very loud, especially in... More

Probably the best food we had all weekend!! The carne asado taco and the tuna taco were just so delicious!! Someone took a lot of thought before preparing those recipes!!! Loved! And the wine was nice and cold!! We sat at the bar. The people and bartender were friendly. A pretty bistro atmosphere!

We really liked Five Horses and will return. We came for brunch with a party of 7, and everyone enjoyed their entrees. The service was very good and the ambiance was fun.
