I think the space could use some reconfiguring. The band that was there last Friday night was really outstanding. Skilled musicians. Not enough room for the people dancing, serving, hanging out in the room. Husband ordered nachos and cheese, and sandwich. I had salad. Actually, arugula with teeny chopped pieces of tomatoes. The Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand was good.... More

Not the friendliest place around. The back room tables have white linen tablecloths, nice if you want a formal dinner. The front room is more of a bar atmosphere with the high tops pretty tight together. IMHO fairly pricey, $8 for draft beers. We went on half-price Burger night, but a McDonald's burger is bigger. Not only that but the... More

I stopped in with my daughters for a quick bite to eat on Tuesday night. I had heard good things about the place. I ordered tacos since it was taco night and a margarita. Both were fine but the taco reminded me somewhat of taco bell. My daughters ordered pizzas and caesar salads. The pizza was thin and tasty and... More

Ambiance is amazing, service is great, food is good. Tricia is fun on Fridays, and I wish they had trivia more often. Margaritas are a little on the weak side, which is fine by me because they are delicious.

Black Horse is a great place to grab a drink or visit for happy hour. For dinner on a weekend, however, there are not nearly enough servers. Our last visit took an incredible amount of time before we were even able to order and we had to walk up to the bar to get drink refills ourselves. We’ll be back... More

We have driven past this place tons of times and decided that tonight was the night. Walked in and the bar scene was packed. The restaurant portion was a little slow, but that is fine, its not a huge restaurant. We quickly were seated and drink orders taken. Then we requested to speak with the Chef. His name is Tim,...

First to say we did not eat here. Tony saw to it that we were having too much fun. Visited by chance at Happy Hour on Piano Bar and 1/2 Cost Burger Wednesday. Good size and value beers, great martinis and suppose the wine was fine also. Saw enough of it going down. Burgers looked a very healthy size and... More

Never had a bad meal. They bring you a delicious home-baked bread with olive oil and spices, always something different every time,to die for. The chef is fantastic. Truffle fries out of this world. Burgers delicious. my daughter had a plain risotto made perfectly. Lobster and crab raviolis in a cream sauce excellent. They have an upstairs and downstairs. A... More
