Soup was not good. Deviled
Soup was not good. Deviled eggs were not worth it. Dates wrapped in bacon were AMAZING

Friendly spot for Friday fun!
Fun, friendly place for dinner. We ordered and shared several small plates - there was something for everyone to enjoy! The server and hostess were helpful, funny, and eager to please. Will definitely be back.

The food was imaginative,
The food was imaginative, well presented, and uniformly excellent. The cold gazpacho soup was very creative since it used green chiles and had a dollop of crab meat on top. They also served the largest asparagus I have ever seen. They were delicious grilled. This restaurant uses local food and it's apparent from the size and taste of the vegetables. I highly recommend this restaurant for people who enjoy fresh local food that is well prepared and reasonably priced.

Not your mother's bar food
What a pleasant surprise. The green gazpacho with crab was light and refreshing the Ciapinno was also delicious. Although this place is well known for the music upstairs, the food is far above the usual for a bar.

Nice evening with family
The light horse provided a very nice venue for an evening meal with my wife and in-laws. Good service, good food, good times.

Overall pleasant experience
We were meeting old family friends we hadn't seen in many years. Part of our party was late, but they accommodated nicely during the wait. The waitress was very friendly throughout the evening, helpful with food suggestions and there enough to be of service without hovering. There was a minor error on 1 order which she promptly corrected. The food was good, and I really enjoyed the spring vegetable hash. They also let us stay long after we finished eating to talk, even after the dining area closed. While the bar was right next door, the noise level was fine for normal conversation. Overall a nice and very accommodating experience.

great food, great upstairs bar
We came in at 9:30 on a Saturday night for a late dinner and drinks and were one of the only tables in the place. The food was delicious - scallops cooked perfectly, mussels in a yummy sauce, surf and turf burger had great flavor and was cooked just right. The waitress was great, drinks were made well and then we went upstairs for the rest of the night, where there was a live band and a bunch of bar games. Weird crowd but overall great experience.

Perfect every time
The Light Horse is my go-to spot when my hard to please family come to town. My mother loves the seasonal fare, local ingredients and wine list; my dad raves about the food and the service - and how he can actually hear us despite being in his mid-70's and a little hard of hearing. My brother gets a steak and a great beer list. Even my cousin, who can't eat gluten, was incredibly satisfied with their selection and her meal. Their menu is small, but there is something for everyone, and it will be delicious, trust me. Plus, it's right on King Street so you can people watch as you eat, and stroll down to the Waterfront afterwards (a nice post-date walk after all of those calories).

Great Date Night
Dinner was for two on a Saturday night @ 7:30. I had requested a quiet table when making the reservation on OpenTable, which was immediately acknowledged by the hostess when we arrived just after 7:30 (that earned me a few points from my date). We were seated at just such a table. Our waitress was attentive, engaged and knowledgeable, but did not hover. The food was prepared correct to our order and was very good.
It was a lovely evening. I frequent the Light Horse more for casual solo dinners, usually taken in the bar upstairs. I was a bit concerned that the noise would be an issue since it was a Saturday night - it was not. The music upstairs didn't start until 10pm (I checked), which gave the dining room (and the diners) some peace.

I had a brunch with a girlfriend and was pleased with our food. I ordered the mussels and the Market Salad. The mussels were great, the salad was a great size but could have used a little more flavor (enhance the dressing perhaps?). The brunch drinks are priced nicely, they have $5 mimosas and bloody marys, but the waitress failed to mention that the specialty brunch cocktails were $6 for Sunday brunch..I had to read the fine print of the menu to find that out. If I would have known that BEFORE ordering my mimosa, I would have most definitely ordered one of the yummy looking specialty drinks.
Overall, pleased and I will most likely return for one of the other cocktails.

Super night out
Proximity to so many other Old Town locations made it a great place to kick off a great evening - thanks!

Well-priced, yummy casual dining
We went to the Lighthorse with two friends from abroad as they wanted to try American cuisine. The Lighthorse menu is small but has something for everyone. We had burgers, all perfectly cooked according to our individual liking, with home-made sweet potato fries on the side, which were delicious! The side order of mustard greens was also well prepared and generous in size. Good selection of wines by the glass, everything (food and drinks) was reasonably priced (which can't be said of all the restaurants on King Street), and the service was swift, friendly and attentive. This is a good place to go for a casual meal. The ambience could be made a little more cosy by some candles on the tables perhaps.

The wine list was really lacking.
The wine list was really lacking. The main entrees were excellent, but the special was overcooked.

Hit the spot!
Went to a late afternoon concert with some friends and wanted to get an early dinner with them - this was great. Varied choices, good execution and presentation - glad we came.

We wanted a nice anniversary dinner but this was more appetizers and small basic menu. Si we has a beer and delicious snacks but not dinner. Place is more appropriate as a bar or simple food rather than soecial occassion.

My party of 4 had the last reservations for brunch on a Saturday. All employees that we interacted with povided great service. Collectively we had the crabcake sandwich, lamb ragout & grits, the corned beef benedict, lazy deviled eggs, bacon wrapped dates, crab & marscapone fritters, tomato bisque, brussels sprouts, and garlic kale. The food was excellent. Our least favorite item was the crab fritter. It was just ok. The food was fresh and of quality ingredients. We will definitely consider coming back.

Nice fine in Old Town
Excellent food, nice atmosphere, good service. Bar upstairs, restaurant dowstairs. Happy hour until 7pm, applies for both restaurant and bar. Ate there on a Tuesday night, around 7pm, only one other couple eating dinner. Free street parking after 6pm.

Always a surprise on the menu
I visit occasionally and while I may order the same entrée from the menu, the accompanying sides usually change, so I am never quite certain about what I will get, but it is always beautifully presented and combinations that work well together. I never leave hungry, either!
Tonight I had the mac & cheese appetizer, which was very nice, followed by the Scallop Entrée. I had to mix everything together to get the full flavor of the dish, which disappointed me because everything was so beautifully placed on the plate.

Great Burgers and More
For some reason this place has never been on our radar screen, yet we had a great dining experience. The menu is not huge but there is a nice selection of app's, salads, burgers and other sandwiches, and a few main course entrees. The two burgers at our table were piled high with "stuff" and were perfectly cooked to the ordered temp. The Flat iron steak was tender and flavorful, also cooked perfectly. And the bourbon pork chop was also done well. They have a good wine list and the overall prices are reasonable. The service was a tad slow but they were busy. Don't pass this one by.
