I grew up in Amherst so high horse has a somewhat special place in my heart but trying to be objective this place is pretty average. Everything from the drinks to environment make it a very standard bar. The drinks are good, the food is...More

Went with two colleagues while in town for a conference. Neat ambiance-simple but chic. Small menu. Our server, Mary, was nice, but slow and didn't know many of the items on the menu, hadn't tried anything! We tried the pig tails (save your money -...More
