“Pleasant setting, very good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

We've eaten here for years and it has definitely improved in the past few. Good seafood and a pleasant place to come to by water. We tend to avoid Saturday nights as it is packed.

“dINING ON THE RIVER”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Food was OK but nothing spectacular. Decorating left a lot to be desired. View of the water is nice to have.

“Quaint Atmospher with Excellent Prime Rib”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

My husband and I had to travel this direction for a funeral and decided to make it a dinner date too. I searched on Tripadvisor and found Horn Harbor House and decided to give it a try. The drive from Northern Va. is a pretty drive. We found the restaurant with no problems. It was a Sunday afternoon when we arrived and the place was empty. That's cuz they weren't open yet!! So, we walked around the small marina and enjoyed the quiet of the water. It's a peaceful spot. At 5pm, the doors opened and everyone welcomed us so warmly! At 5:02, cars were pulling in at a pretty fast rate!

Our server called us Hon or Sweetie even though she was 25+ years younger than us. Everyone was greeted by name upon arrival and we heard conversations between diners and servers asking about everything from grandchildren to college. Even though we were obviously "out-of-towners", we never felt uncomfortable or unwanted.

I ordered the prime rib as other reviewers had mentioned how good it was. My husband had the crab cake. He said it was very good, with little filling. The prime rib was the best I've ever had...and I've had a lot of prime rib (restaurant and made at home)! I'm not sure what it was, but I think the way they roasted the meat in the juices made it very tender. The flavor was delicious. Not salty but really delicious. I couldn't stop eating it!

We couldn't stay long as we had to get going but everyone gave us a wave and said that they hoped we would come back in the Spring or Summer. We plan to take our kids for this "cultural experience" and we can't wait.

TIP: This restaurant is seasonal and closes sometime in November. Be sure to check their website for dates and times that they are open.

I think you could probably boat to this restaurant if you wanted to!

“Real nice restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

We had a great meal here. The Seafood Sampler appetizer is the size of a big meal!! Enjoyed the art and decor. Food has always been great here.
