I loved the Black Horse. The food was exceptional but they closed their doors permanently on December 31, 2016. It's a real shame. The food, service, everything was excellent.

Was a great local restaurant. Unfortunately, they closed after New Year's with no apparent reason. Too bad, as the food and service were very good.
