Nice restaurant

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.

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

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.
