“Can't be beat for Beef”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014

In the several decades I have dined here, I've never been disappointed by the quality of the beef. This was true of a recent visit, as well. The Filet was perfect as was the Prime Rib ordered by my companion. Starters of grilled asparagus and a sweet potato soup were delightful. Have to mention the service; our waiter, Matt, was most extraordinary.
One minor-key criticism-no ramp for handicapped.

“Great Place to Celebrate”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2014

I see some negative reviews in here, but our experience was great. We were there to celebrate my daughter's graduation from Hood College and the evening couldn't have been more pleasant. The steaks were excellent.

“O”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2014

ld fashioned (meaning Good!) decor, wonderful food, excellent service and a deep wine list made our dining experience memorable. Very tasty beef with beautiful sauces, good seafood, and an unhurried, uncrowded dinner. Recommended!

“An oldie, but a goodie”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2014

As other reviewers have stated, Red Horse is not the fanciest place in Frederick. It's homey and warm. It's sentimental. Over the years the menu has gotten better, they have a good wine selection, and the staff seems to be formally trained. Service is very friendly, but professional at the same time. This goes for the younger staff members, too. This is a welcoming, family place. It's billed as a steakhouse, but the seafood, chicken, and pork are actually better than the steaks. French onion soup is the best in town.

“Not worth it”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2014

We went there for restaurant week. The interior is outdated, prices on the regular menu seemed a bit high, and their service was mediocre. For main course I ordered Squash Wrapped Flounder on Creamy Mushroom Risotto, it was nothing but steamed fish that lacked any spices with risotto that was not creamy at all. It looked and tasted like it was cooked the day before. My boyfriend ordered Stuffed Duck Cranberry, Walnut, Cream Cheese with Mushroom Risotto and Endive Salad, his duck was ok, but the salad and risotto were not edible. The restaurant was not crowded or busy, but our waiters needed an extra reminder with our drink orders. I would not recommend this place to anyone.
