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.

Stumbled on this place en route to Saturday street fair. Didn't want to sit inside, though the venue looked inviting; just too loud for relaxed conversation. (Same story as in 95% of restaurants, especially those with bars.) Outside seating area was tolerable noise-wise. (Only an option, of course, in summer.) I had the basic breakfast of eggs, potatoes, fruit salad,... More

I went to Five Horses with the in-laws one day after work. It's in the heart of Davis Square - and there's a million amazing Boston bars and restaurants to choose from. I love that part of town - and every bar and restaurant has a unique personality. Walking up, Five Horses has the look and feel of a great... More

Great eclectic food and interesting drinks. Wonderful service. Food was amazing. Got the mushrooms on toast and the tuna tartare for dinner, came back for lunch the next day and had the English Pea salad.

Worth going for the absolutely amazing craft beer menu, including some rarities. Although the food ranged from very good to excellent, ignore the ridiculous suggestion of "tater tots" as a side dish (frozen, not homemade). Servers are somewhat condescending.

Food was good from chicken sandwich to duck sandwich and beverages. The service was good also it was far better than m3 right down the street. Cold breeze made it a bit bad. It was open for lunch.

I want to love this menu. Mouth-watering flavor pairings, inspiration from Mexico to Vietnam, and clever puns like the Pea Diddy salad. But every time I eat here, I'm sorely disappointed. Burnt buns, over-salted ingredients, meagre two-egg brunch plates. However, the beer selection really is excellent, and it's a great spot to enjoy a pint (or a pitcher) al fresco... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Davis Square. The craft beer selection is awesome and wide ranging with lots of local brews as well as delicious "visitors." The food is excellent. As a vegetarian I often have a hard time finding veggie options other than a portabello mushroom burger or a veggie wrap but this place has inventive... More

The menu has a huge assortment of beers, some with pretty interesting names. When our group arrived, close to 20:30hrs on a Thursday, we had a 10 min wait for a well placed table. The waitresses were very friendly and quick. In general highly recommended. It can be reached through a short 5 minute walk from the Red T-Line Davis... More
