It was awesome. A little bit of a wait if you get there later & they waitresses certainly try to... read more

Excellent and innovative menu at Five Horses definitely merits a visit. The appetizers are tapas style, with excellent veggie apps that you rarely see anywhere else. You must try the skillet cornbread - hands down the best cornbread I've ever had. It is so sweet and rich you could eat it for desert! Also would recommend the ribs (which come... More

Went to visit Tufts and stopped for dinner after the visit. What a great surprise. The vegan tasting plate was unbelievable and some of the best Mac and cheese ever. Loved it hope to get back

Went here for brunch this past weekend with family and friends and after the great experience we had, it's officially on my list of go-to restaurants.To start we ordered cornbread and were pleasantly surprised to find that it wasn't your typical boxy looking cornbread, but instead, they brought out a hot skillet filled with a golden, thin layer of piping...

I ate dinner at the Five Hourses Tavern on a Thursday night with my family. The restaurant was crowded even on a week night, so I would recommend calling ahead for reservations. The wait staff was friendly and prompt at taking our order. Beer selection was good with several different varieties several breweries from around the country. The food was... More

Came here for lunch with friends on a trip to Boston to see a show. Has a varied and well priced menu. Had the tuna taco (so so) and the pork belly taco (very good) and a local beer - forgetting the name - which was excellent. Was there early enough so it wasn't crowded which was nice. They have...

If you don't mind yelling to the person sitting next to you to be heard, this is a great place to meet for dinner and drinks. Everything we had was very delicious and very spicy, but we like spicy. The ribs were awesome and everyone else at the table was very pleased with their meal. It is a tad on... More

Found this place by accident and so glad we did! Food was very good with nice portion sizes and reasonably priced. Eat outside or just inside the door with wide open windows. Enjoy the great drink selection in a comfortable, relaxing place.
