“Just Okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

Smallish sized pub with a bar with some seating on one side and restaurant seating on the other and on the patio. Nice menu with not your typical pub fare.

The food was good and tasty.
The portions were at best average and the prices were anything but.
(For those who can't read between the lines, you'll pay a lot but you won't get a lot.)

For atmosphere, they dimmed the lights--too low, I strained to read the menu even with my reading glasses.

Service was just okay. Waitress was not all that friendly, seemed to do us a favor to take orders. She did not return to refill drinks. Food did come out promptly.
I asked the waitress if the Rueben was a big portion, and she responded "You won't be hungry afterwards." If I was twiggy maybe. Unfortunately I was still hungry.

On a positive note, we were a party of 7, we were not rushed.

“Cozy little place, great service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

We went to Tarrytown for the Great Jack O Lantern Blaze and needed a casual spot to grab a bite with friends. This was the perfect spot. It's very cozy inside and the service was quick and attentive. The food was good, nothing fancy, the kind of place you get soup or a burger.
Glad we took a friends recommendation so that's why I'm recommending it here.

“No wonder it's been around so long!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

We've been living in Tarrytown for more than 30 years and Horsefeathers was a legend when we moved in. While we frequented Horsefeathers often when we first arrived, we haven't visited the place for a few years. The other evening we stopped by just looking for a casual meal and were delighted with the food and the service. The burger I ordered was perfectly cooked and succulent, the cole slaw was home-made (it definitely did not come from a plastic container and it had no sugary taste at all - tasting sugar in cole slaw is one of my pet peeves) and the onion rings were top notch. My husband's steak sandwich was also perfectly cooked and served with well caramelized onions. There is an excellent choice of beers served in well-frozen glasses, something you don't find too often nowadays. The service was professional and unobtrusive. Our only complaint was the level of noise - by all means keep the quirky and delightful murals and such, but please do something to lessen the din.

“Great burgers and cold beer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

Was told to try eating here during a recent business trip. It is a little hard to find parking and pay attention going down highway 9, you will try by it. Once you find parking get ready. It is a quaint old town pub, with great burgers, salads and dinners if you want. The chili cheese nachos were wonderful. Had a couple of ice cold ones too, from a great selection that changes with the seasons. Staff was good and service was quick.
