5 couples went here after doing the Brew Cycle ride (which I highly recommend BTW). We came here bc one of the women in our group has a gluten allergy and she did some research online and found that they have a gluten free menu). The food was good and our waiter was hilarious. I wish I could... read more

Excellent American food without too much frying! Extensive menu choice with lots of salads and lighter options. All very fresh and well prepared. Very friendly staff who made us feel welcome. Had a large range of gluten free options so great if you have any food intolerances. Good value for money

I LOVE going to this place because everything is Celiac Disease friendly. It doesn't hurt that the food is incredible, even for people who are not gluten free. I try to go at least a couple of times a year. The decor is beautiful as well - almost like a small french café.

This is the best food I ate in the week I spent in Riverhead. Friendly staff gave us some excellent food recommendations and were knowledgable when it came to the wine as well. Highly recommended.

We have eaten at Dark Horse before and were satisfied . This time we were disappointed . I had the lobster Toll and was disappointed . tasted like something out of a can . The French onion was VERY salty and the cheese on top was hard and not fresh . We even ordered desert and that was disappointing and... More

We had dinner at the Dark Horse on Thursday evening. There were only a few other patrons in the restaurant. Our server, Ross, was very friendly and engaging. The food was quite good, the decor was nice, the service was good.

Online the menu looks interesting but when we got there we found a different menu. The food was ok, a bit expensive for what we got. The place was empty and service was average. It looks better than what it is.

I had high hopes for the Dark Horse but they fell short. Not much of a crowd, service if friendly but bizarre? Entrees were edible but not enjoyable, a little bland and very salty; not my idea of good flavor. We were offered dessert but the server never came back to take our order (we would have had dessert) and... More

I ordered the flounder special, the few bites of it that were on my plate taste good but it was on very small filet (not enough) for dinner or the price. Other members of our party had bison burgers that they enjoyed. Another friend had the chicken pasta Alfredo it was just ok and the portion was small. I rarely... More
