Light Horse has a laid back yet upsclae vib. There's a great fireplace for the cold winter nights and outdoor seating when warmer weather arrives. Food is classified as modern American - I just classify it under great. All their ingredients are fresh, local and seasonal. The fish is excellent; try the raw oysters or clams in season, you wont...

This restaurant was superb in several ways. The food was delicious as the chef blended flavors in a subtle way. The calamari was served on a bed of quinoa and a balsamic vinaigrette.The absolutely huge pork chop had been marinated in hard cider and was served on a bed of cheese grits and black eyed peas...so yummy. The prime rib... More

This is an old standby for us when we're not sure what to do for Sunday brunch. The main reasons we like it are the authentic feel and the vanilla croissant french toast. The lobster roll is also great and features large chunks of fresh lobster meat The restaurant offers outdoor seating in a charming neighborhood. Dinner is also good,... More

Went out to celebrate a friend's birthday. The place is beautiful. It is located in a very nice neighborhood. The wine list and cocktail list is extensive and has very nice choices. Staff was very attentive, The bacon wrapped meatloaf is to die for. I am already planning when I am going back and it will be really soon!!!!!

I was here recently for a business meal with a colleague and a client. The food was very good, if not memorable, but the service was mediocre. I am fairly tolerant of service, but our server was only intermittently attentive and did things such as reach across someone to get a menu. At the price, which was fine, I expect... More

Nice neighborhood ambiance, great wait staff, excellent service and great menu selection and great prices. And the wine list is wonderful as well. I love it's proximity to the Statue of Liberty and NYC, but it's neighborhood feel. Great place.

We were recommended the light horse and what a great recommendation! We sat at the bar to enjoy a great array of draught and bottled craft beers, at great prices, with plenty of wine to choose from with a wide variety and price point! Seeing that the bar/restaurant was continuously full we opted to eat at the bar and were... More
