Diner Reviews
  • "My wife and I had a wonderful meal. Drinks were great (pomegranate martini and half bottle Moscato) Fried asparagus for appetizer. Fresh tasting and crunchy coating made it a great choice. We each got a different cut of prime rib. One end cut which brought back wonderful childhood memories and was great and one regular cut which was huge and also wonderful. Our server was very knowledgeable and attentive (been there 22 years). Pretty expensive but a great special occasion dining spot."

  • "The restaurant is lovely inside. Unfortunately, the bus personal were more personable and attentive to us than the waitress. Food was okay, overpriced for the quality. The coconut cake was delicious. We had been wondering about this restaurant for years, finally tried it and we were very disappointed."

  • "Good crowd on a Saturday. A few specials besides the regular menu. The steaks were soooo good, the wine flowing, and the service was great. Just a good place for consistent food and service!"

  • "Bad parking. Bad check in procedure. Even with a reservation, they mistakenly told us we didn't have one and nearly denied us a table. Good service for only first half of meal. Waiter becomes very inaccessible for second half. They failed to cook to specifications for my order. Even after being given the opportunity to fix, they undercooked the steak again. They misled us making us think the salad was included when it was not. Several waiters kept asking us if we were done, if we wanted the check. Keep in mind our plates were only half empty and we were still actively eating. Very pushy and anxious to get our table cleared away. Good atmosphere. Decent variety in food selection. Plates' cost averaged $40."

  • "The service was awful. My salmon was raw, veggies cold. My husbans veggies also cold. My friend asked for mashed potatoes she got baked potato. She asked for well done she got medium well . Her husband asked for baked potatoes and got mashed potatoes. The waiter never came to ask if we were ok.Ah! My plate was chipped in one corner. The only good thing was the salad. I was just wondering since the restaurant is in Frederick and we are minorities. Naw! Well the waiter was the only minority that night. Just wondering."

  • "We went out last minute for our anniversary/birthday/valentine's celebration. We had been to the Red Horse before and really enjoyed it and we enjoyed it again. The food was excellent. The service was great. It has a nice cozy feel but is a little dated if you are hoping for trendy and modern. I actually like that is comfortable and homey with fires going and nice woodwork. The tables are nicely spaced too you don't feel you are right on top of other diners."

  • "The Red Horse always shows well. This was a busy Saturday night due to the fact that there was a "spill-over" Valetine's Day crowd due to the weather, but the staff of the Red Horse handled this perfectly. My wife and I sat a the bar for a couple of minutes while our table was made ready. We asked the staff to surprise us with a bottle of wine to go with our meal and that was well done. My wife and I both had steaks and they were grilled perfectly. I highly recommend the Red Horse for a great meal for two or for a family reunion. A Great Night!"

  • "Brought my wife here hoping for a wonderful steak dinner. What we found was a restaurant that never left the 70s in its décor, to the point we started calling it grandma's rec room! This restaurant definitely needs a remodel, and then it needs to decide what it wants to be when it grows up. Fine dining it is NOT when you have big screen TVs mounted on the walls, although it's definitely not somewhere you'd want to go to watch a game. The service was mediocre at best, as if the waiter was doing us a favor to check on us and bring us our food. The steak was pretty good, but the mixed veggies that came with both of our dinners (vegetable du jour) were straight from the frozen packet they came in. This restaurant is a "one and done" for us."

  • "Filet was like a chuck roast. Terrible quality meat. When sent back, they brought same sides reheated to SUPER HOT in the microwave, and another steak that was just like the first. Tough, unattractive and taste like meat from a department store. Broccoli tasted like someone's musty basement. Not a good experience. Will never go back."

  • "Great valentine's day experience for me and my girlfriend. The service was great, server recommended the prime rib, which both of us got and it was very good. Crab dip was great, actual crab meat in it, could have been alittle warmer but it was good. Overall, great experience and would be going back another time."

  • "My wife and I made a last minute decision to go out for Valentine's Day. Even though it was late the staff at the Red Horse gave us very good service and very good food. Although the atmosphere is a little more rustic than an upscale Steak House, it is inviting and comfy cozy. We have booked their banquet facility for a rehearsal dinner that is on the horizon."

  • "Excellent service and good atmosphere. The food was good, but a little bland and a bit overpriced."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "The food was good, service was a little slow. The ambience needs some work. The décor is very dated, and the room is so open that you can hear individual conversations from the tables. There was a group in the room that was louder than a small table would be, and because of the room size the sound was amplified. The steaks were very good, although mine had to be sent back and corrected for proper cooking. A little pricey for the dated décor."

  • "Went to the Red Horse looking for a good steak dinner. This was my first visit to this restaurant. The staff was excellent and attentive. The rest of the experience was disappointing. The Filet Mignon was just OK and pretty bland. The sautéed mushrooms seemed reheated. The "vegetable du jour" was a cauliflower medley (really?) and also seemed reheated and old. Baked potato was overdone and probably sitting around all evening. Always wanted to dine here, but will not return. Oh did I mention...way too expensive."

  • "We were there on a Thursday and were one of four tables in the room (room without TVs). Therefore, it was very nice since the noise level was low. Service was terrific and the food was very good. Prime rib was great and the filet was somewhat lacking in flavor. We've been to the Red Horse numerous times and have anyways had good meal with excellent service."

  • "Had a great dinner for our anniversary. The surf and turf was excellent. The service was great with Don who went out of his way to make our dinner "special"."
    Dined on 1/6/2014
  • "I took my fiance there for dinner and overall the experience was good. It has a cozy atmosphere with a real fire place going on a cold night. They also have a window into the room where the steaks are cooked which was different. While the food was good I did feel like they are a bit over priced."

  • "Recent menu change is an improvement. Entree was served before salad was finished. This is unusual for this restaurant, but I think it was because they have not adjusted to the time to eat some of their new menu items....for instance the wedge salad is huge and takes a while to eat. Otherwise service and food was great. Best prime rib in town"

  • "My husband and I were driving up to Frederick to see a concert at the Weinberg Center, and decided to stop somewhere in town for dinner. We had never been the Red Horse before and we were very impressed. The menu was varied, our service attentive and pleasant, and the food was excellent. I highly recommend the seared scallops- they were some of the best that I have had! The restaurant was a little dark and it definitely has a rustic theme, but we had a wonderful time. The desserts were also outstanding- especially the chocolate lava cake. We would definitely go again the next time we are in the area!"

  • "My wife and I visited the Red Horse for the first time this weekend, and were pretty disappointed. The food was bland, and for a place that bills itself as a steakhouse, the steaks were mediocre -- I don't consider a $30 steak "premium," but at that price point it should at least be better than what you can get at Giant. Not so here. Even the french fries, which my sons had, were dried out and tasteless. The atmosphere was relaxed and pleasant. The place is decorated nicely, just what you'd expect: kitschy and clean, kind of feels like you're in someone's living room that could stand an update but is comfortable and welcoming anyway. The service was good, attentive and polite without being intrusive, but couldn't save the meal."

  • "The food was excellent but I had mentioned when I phoned in to confirm that it was my brother in laws birthday. It seems that was forgotten. So we didn't really get to sing or publicly acknowledge his special day. In addition we think the waiter got my husbands soda mixed up. It came back tasting like raspberry and had a lime in the bottom. He wasn't sure what he got. He doesn't drink alcohol, so that was a bit scarey because we weren't sure if there was alcohol in the glass or not. (after he drank most of it) Other then that, we love the Red Horse and go there for almost every special occasion."

  • "Awesome place! If you want a great steak this is the place to go. I had the New York strip and it was cooked to perfection and had the best taste. The meat is excellent and very tender. The atmosphere is wonderful. It was a special occasion for us, we had a few friends visiting and this was the greatest place to spend time catching up."

  • "This was my second visit to this charming 1968 built facility. The food was truly impressive. The steaks were aged well and cooked to perfection. The sides were all home made and perfectly cooked. The ambiance is old school steak house. The place was built in 1968. All wood decor gives it a comfortable patina and a nice change from the chain restaurants, The servers were attentive and well versed in the offerings. Great location in Frederick, Md. Met my son and wife from DC....My wife and I rolled from Harrisburg. A great midpoint and future meeting spot for us. Priced well for the portions and quality. I'll be back."
