“Not always easy to get in...”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

the place is usually packed. The beers are terrific and there is a wide variety to choose your favorite (we love the Black!). The food is amazing and while they added seating, there is never enough. Sometimes we try, but give up trying to get in and find a seat. The Dark Horse is a huge success.

“Local beer, great food”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

We love Dark Horse, especially for it's atmosphere and beer. The food is not as great as other breweries, but is still really good. Their pizzas, especially, are excellent. My favorite brew is R.O.D., which is a red ale.

“A good beer and sandwich!”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

I had a chance to stop in at Dark Horse recently for a beer and a bite to eat. It was only a few minutes off the freeway at the Marshall exit.

The place is interesting, in that it looks like it may have been an old lumber yard before it became a brewery. The pub is decorated in ceramic mugs and graffitti, creating an interesting mix that is hard to define.

The beer was quite good, and the sandwiches we'd ordered were excellent, made with pretzel roll that used spent grains from their brewing operations.

I'd defintitely stop again if I was in the area.

“Best microbrew I ever tried”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

The Dark Horse Brewery is a really neat bar and worth getting of main street for. We had the Pale ale it was so yummy I had 2. The kitchen was being remodeled to accomodate their growing business, so the menu wasn't much when we were there.

“Great lunch - stopped in for the beer, stayed for the food!”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

This is quite the little gem, nothing fancy on the outside but when you walk in and see hundreds (maybe thousands) of beer mugs on the walls and ceiling you know you are in a good place. I love the Crooked Tree IPA, but had the Rasberry Ale the night before at a bar in St Joe, MI.
The sandwiches are to die for - calzones look over the top all hand made. The bartender told us her favorite was the bacon cheeseburger pizza and that sounds fabulous too.

The service was good, we went at lunch time on a Monday and sat at the bar. I could see issues if you sat outside because there was only one girl on for lunch service and she had the whole place.

We visited from Ohio and North Carolina, and when we are back in the area again for Christmas we are defintely going back.
