This is a staple of my experience in Davis Square. They consistently have excellent food of a variety that will please everyone, including dietary restriction options. I've taken to bringing visitors to the area here as a rule, since it does not disappoint. The local beer draft list is awesome, and they serve delicious cocktails. The wait usually isn't too...

Love the appetizers and menu items I've had. They have cellared beer selections, as well as a long list on tap. Burger is easily top of the list in the area, and I've been out for quite a few different burger selections. Nice enough vegetarian options as well.

Hubby and I came out for dinner tonight and wanted to try Five Horse for the beer. But good grief the flatbread pizza was phenomenal. I had the French Kiss. It was so good. And a great beer selection!!

Maybe it's my fault and I'm simply unlucky... The first time I came here to eat there was such a terrible smell that I escaped without even asking for a table... the second time we got a table and it was not smelly anymore, but the burgers were not properly cooked (generally "overcooked" even when a medium-rare was asked), and...

Went here on a Friday night for dinner. Wanted to go somewhere in the popular Davis Square area and this was recommended by my daughter. The staff was very friendly and accommodating including changes we made to our original reservation (and reservations seem to be recommended here). The first thing I noticed was that it was very loud, especially in... More

Probably the best food we had all weekend!! The carne asado taco and the tuna taco were just so delicious!! Someone took a lot of thought before preparing those recipes!!! Loved! And the wine was nice and cold!! We sat at the bar. The people and bartender were friendly. A pretty bistro atmosphere!

We really liked Five Horses and will return. We came for brunch with a party of 7, and everyone enjoyed their entrees. The service was very good and the ambiance was fun.

My husband and I decided to try out a restaurant in Somerville since we have heard so many good things about the restaurant scene. We settled on Five Horses Tavern...The atmosphere was decent a typical tavern type feel, although the music was loud which made it difficult to have a conversation while having dinner. Our waitress was super friendly and... More

Interesting menu able to accomadate 6 on short notice. The sausage and pasta dish was excellent. Also the mac and cheese got rave reviews. Large selection of beer but wines were disappointing in flavor and choice.

The menu here is really interesting. It's a lovely cushion of styles of food. I opted for the Kentucky style chicken, as a starter and it was 5 massive pieces, with an amazing 'dragon sauce' which was sweet enough and really delightful. ( I got extra and was happy to pay the charge) The corn bread was melt in your... More
