“Jimmy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Jimmy the bartender is doing all he can to reduce the lunchtime crowds. He follows the strict rule of not seating any tables until all are physically present in front of his bar. We went elsewhere for lunch. Keep up the good work, Jimmy!!

“Best Steamers in Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Although it is truly a bar first and restaurant second, the food at The Dark Horse is always extremely good. The chef varies the daily specials which allows a different food experience no matter how often you stop by to dine. Regardless of my main dish, I always start with the steamers which are the best in town and NEVER disappoint! Enjoy the experience but be prepared to wait because seating is limited.

“Great Bar and Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

We love this restaurant for dinner. The bar business is always steady but you do need to get to the restaurant early in order to be seated. They do not accept reservations and the tables and booths are limited. The food is wonderful, however, and well worth a wait. This small bar offers top quality food, always fresh and always interesting. The cuisine is a mix of American and other international cuisines. There are normally nightly specials both for appetizers and main courses. This unpretentious bar/restaurant offers very good food and excellent service. Definitely worth a visit!

“Dark Horse Excells”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Excellent food and wait staff. The beers could be improved but the food is well worth putting up with the crowds.

“terrible service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Jimmy the bartender refused to put the TV on the Game 7 of the NBA finals. Instead, he kept it on a baseball game. No one was watching the baseball game, but he stil would not put on the championship NBA game. My friends and left to go elsewhere and will not return because of Jimmy the bartender.
