Good but not great

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

We were going to this restaurant to hear the performer appearing there and I am so happy we did! The menu is fantastic with something for everyone. I had the Vegetable Dieci Strati which was delicious! My husband had the Chicken Fried Chicken which was phenomenal. We shared the brownie dessert with coconut ice cream. The brownie was good,but the... More

My husband and I celebrated his birthday with a delicious dinner, pleasant guitarist in the background, and a gracious waitress. The menu is varied enough to please both a vegetarian and a steak lover and the homemade corn bread is moist and just enough to complement a salad. We have been to this restaurant for lunch and dinner and have... More

This is a small, clean and well run restaurant in an otherwise lonely little town on the East End of Long Island. Food is good and the prices are not exorbitant.

We had a coupon for this restaurant and was pleasantly surprised with the atmosphere. Very pleasant restaurant. The entertainment was great too (music from the 60's to 80's) I had short ribs that were to die for. Price was right,entertainment was great, atmosphere was pleasing and great food.

Ended up eating here after trying to eat at Tweeds without a reservation. We were seated immediately. It was a Saturday night and they had live music. Sort of nice. Place was clean. Cornbread was good. Salmon was yummy. Husband did not enjoy the short ribs or the sauce they were served in. Staff was attentive.
