“Foods not that great business has changed long wait and your hot meal isnt always hot and very expensive.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

Don't like the long wait and the high prices if your food is supposed to be hot it should be hot.The fries are the worst not crunchy at all very dry yuck.

“over the top fabulous!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2014

We were recommeded to go to the Black Horse Tavern as was our last night and were told about their lobster. We were very, very happy we followed their advice(thanks David and Avril!) We had super service from the moment we stepped in the door. I wish I could remember our waitress's name but she was fabulous. We had Lobster which was definately our best Lobster ever!! The waitress even let me sample a dish that I didn't know what was at the time, which I also loved. When we were ready to go, the place was packed and busy. We paid and we asked if the buses still ran, and at this time of year they didn't run at this time. This person whom turned out to be the owner, offered and gave us a ride all the way to our hotel! we were so happy and appreciative!! Thanks very much Heather!! Wow!! we really recommend going here, for the service and the food, as well as the setting is very beautiful. We are definately coming back to Bermuda and back to our new favorite restaurant.

“The best lobster I've ever had.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2014

I don't want to tell anybody about this place, cause it's that good. We had an amazing waitress (Maria) who really took care of us, and all the food was amazingly fresh. I have great memories of Bermuda, and this is one of them.

“Delicious food but ok service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014 via mobile

Traditional Bermudian seafood at its best. However, service was ok...Bermudian waitress had to pick up the slack for the filapino waitress. I recommand the snapper dish...compliments to the chef...excellent food...too bad ther was no shark hash.
