“This restaurant aspires to be Chuck-e-cheese”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

Food is very "food chainish". Wait staff are usually very attentive or accommodating, unless of course you have had two beers and laugh too loudly. Saw a guy hauled out by cops because he was served two beers, questioned his food, got a little loud, but then was "escorted" out. This place has a reputation for a lot of police visits once the bar starts cranking. Stay away if you can.

“Good spot for family meal or drinks with friends”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

I ate here with a large group of family and friends. There is a good variety of food and lovely cocktails. It is family friendly. The service was fast and friendly. The staff were very helpful dealing with a large party. Would definitely go there again .

This place is just depressing. It is the opposite of high-end... The food is mediocre, the drink selection is poor, noisy, and obnoxious kids running around everywhere. The owners also own the Abington Ale House which is shocking to me because the AAH is great; totally different experience from the Charlie Horse

“Better than I expected!”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We were in a rush to get to an event, and starving, so we pulled into the Charlie Horse, which we thought would be just an average sports bar kind of experience.
Au contraire, fellow diners.
First surprise: several roomy dining areas, with ample space between tables - so, although it was crowded, it didn't feel cramped or too noisy.
Next bonus: Super friendly staff. Everyone was smiling and nice, and said "you're welcome," instead of "no problem." Great service!
Biggest surprise: really good food. Reasonable prices.
We don't make it down to that area often, but we'd definitely go back to the Charlie Horse!
