The food seems to be average. Nothing to special, but nothing wrong with it either. Waitress seemed overworked, but was helpful.

Felt like they changed chefs again. The steak sub that used to be tender, juicy and tasty was a disappointment. The meat was dry, the veggies almost none existent. Such a shame to ruin what used to be a great dish. Get rid of those dry brioche buns and go back to real buns for sandwiches. The new cole slaw... More

Being from the West Coast and our first visit to this area, we were looking for a cozy local place for lunch. Some of the reviews talked about long waits, since this is a bit off season we just walked in. Fantastic service and the lobster tools and Swiss pastrami melt were excellent. My husband RAVED about the Chicken and... More

Went for brunch recently with my wife and daughter. It was excellent ! We had visited a few times this summer and were never disappointed. The corn fritters are a must for an appetizer! Ashley waited on us at the bar and she is a true professional. I had the crab cake benedict, on of the best I have had... More

We visited black horse tavern on a Wednesday night and it was packed. We soon worked out why as we found the food delicious. I had the lobster pie which I may dream about, and my partner had scallops. However, our waitress wasn't very attentive, possibly because of how busy it was. When my partner ordered his scallops and she... More

Even though it was a busy day, the service was great and the food was delicious. We really enjoyed the Seafood Chowder and the Lobster Rolls were just right.
