Fun place to meet.

My brothers and our wives have been meeting at different Davis Square restaurants for the last few years and I think this is one of the more fun stops we've had.

This place certainly known for their beer selection. Not sure how many beers they have on tap, but it is a lot. The food was good as well. We had wings as an appetizer and I had a burger and their jalapeño mash potatoes Yum!! Great bar food and great place to hang out and meet for drinks with friends.

Place with tons of craft beers which attracts the 20 something hipster crowd. Food is standard bar food nothing worth mentioning. The servers were very good and pleasant.

This place came incredibly highly recommended and unfortunately I was very disappointed. As someone who worked in the restaurant industry for many years, I was completely offended and shocked by their terrible customer service and poor management. Their manager was condescending, rude, and completely unaccommodating. I will never go back.

5 Horses is a great find. In from out of town visiting relatives, the food was extraordinarily a very creative menu. We will make this a regular stop when in Boston. The service was very friendly and fast. The beer selection is outstanding.

I went to Five Horses Tavern for the first time with my boyfriend and another couple...we all loved it! The beer selection was awesome...many to choose from, a variety of types and price points. Our server was very attentive (albeit not overly talkative or engaging). This is a VERY busy place, definitely make a reservation as it seems most people... More

Grabbed some dinner here while visiting my friend and everything was delicious, their pretzel is a great way to start. Great draught selection and lots of tv's if you're trying to catch a game as well!

Went here a few nights ago & while the food/drinks were delicious I found an almost wishbone sized bone in the chicken on my pizza. I was able to catch it, but I could have easily choked & cracked my teeth. And it wasn't a bone in an actual chicken breast, but in a small piece of chicken on a... More

A group of us decided that we were tired of Redbones in Davis Square, and wanted a goos spot to eat before the Banff Film Festival at the Somerville Theater. The staff cheerfully made reservations for our large group, and we proceeded to eat and drink our way through the menu. The beer listing was 2 pages long, sorted by... More
