“Great food and brews”
Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

Very interesting menu, burgers were great (I loved the one with pork belly in it). Great IPAs. Mac and cheese was great to start. NY strip was good, but thin and over cooked.

“Good beer, nice plates of interesting food”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

OK - I admit we go here a lot because my wife loves their hamburgers. She always orders them rare and they never disappoint. I don't eat meat but there's always something interesting on the menu for me and it always tastes fresh. If it's not crowded go sit at the bar. One caution they sometimes have live music and it's right next to the bar, so not easy on conversation when that happens. Ah back to food and beverage. The have their own beer, a pretty good grouping along with some specials and a mix of guest brews as well. The service is usually pretty good but sometimes variable depending on where you sit. They do have wonderful 'endless' french fries although I have yet to order more than one refill, the portions are good, a lot of the recipes use locally sourced food, another plus.

“Excellent as always”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

We have never been disappointed by the beer or the food here. We had fish and chips that were lightly battered and cooked just right and eggplant parm which was one of the daily specials. Server was friendly with just the right amount of attentiveness.

“Wow, those burgers are great!”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

In a college town, there are lots of choices but not always a great deal of quality - the High Horse has one of the best burgers, if not the best burger, in town. The grass fed beef on freshly made brioche and home made pickles can't be beat - it's a little pricey and ambiance leaves a bit to be desired, but if it's a burger you're longing for, this is the place.

“Very long wait.”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

We were seated right away, but the wait for our food was over the top. It was at least 45 minutes. The food that finally came out was good. The atmosphere inside was dark. We were not able to sit outside as a party of six. Three burgers were ordered and were very good. The sandwiches ordered were also tasty. Skip the side of potato puffs. Very greasy.
