Mmm, Mmm Good!

Thanks to local knowledge I wound up having dinner at the Dark Horse Tavern. It's in a nondescript strip mall. You'd never suspect from its location or outside appearance how special this place is. There were four of us, and all the meals were delicious. The food there is obviously made with... read more

Always great food in this cozy neighborhood bar and restaurant. This popular restaurant has a good crowd every day. I think they have the best french onion soup in Syracuse.

This was our first time patronizing this place. Excellent from beginning to end! Happy Hour was fun with a FREE home made appetizer included. Yummy! We met up with some friends and enjoyed delicious dinners and desserts. The prices were reasonable, too. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Clean and welcoming, to say the least. All of us will... More

We were looking for an off the beaten path place to eat after the SU DUKE game and found this GREAT place to eat and drink. GREAT service in a packed place. All 4 of us had a different item and we are loved our choices. My lamb pops topped with scallops were so yummy. Love the concept of 1/2... More

Just had a GREAT drinking/dining experience at the Dark Horse!! We arrived on a Friday night, around 6:30--they do not take reservations--to a packed house! The bar area was full of happy people, and after getting our name on the dining list, we JOINED them!! I LOVE a busy bar, with a good wine and beer selection, and the DarkHorse... More

The Dark Horse never fails to please. We were here mid-week which gave a welcome relief from the packed house that this restaurant usually has. Took our two teenagers here for my birthday dinner and everyone left raving about their meal. Won't be our last visit!

Good menu, good service, great food. The facility felt a little crowded at first but we became used to the cosy feeling.

When we arrived at 6:45 on a Wednesday, the place was packed. It's in a small strip plaza that we missed at first. We had a dickens of a time finding a place to park and once we got inside, we knew why. We waited at the bar for about 30 minutes for a table. During that time, we were... More

I've been to this tavern several times and am never disappointed. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is fun. It's very small so get there early if you want a seat! The wait staff works together which is nice. You can ask anyone if you need something and they are more than happy to comply. Andrew served us the... More
