Absolutely amazing experience. Great menu, delicious cocktails. Great value fir the money. Perfect for a date, birthdays, or just everyday dining. The staff accommodated COVID safety protocols and were courteous and professional but not over-bearing. This is my favorite restaurant in Davis Square. I can’t wait to eat here again!
Really disappointing Experience today I had after bragging to a friend how good our food was on Monday we came today and got the exact same food and the wings were completely dry and made a completely different way. I asked specifically for extra limes and the waiter couldn’t even do that the wings came completely dry and cold hard limes on the side which I thought was the whole point of having drunken wings with lime. The servers could’ve been completely more friendly as well since we made it clear what we wanted and as they had said before the place was pretty empty so it should have been hard to get an order right. Felt like we got a lot of attitude and after I had just gave such a credit to the restaurant earlier this was wish a disappointing experience. Guess some places are hit or miss....

Great staff, food and cocktails! Went on thanksgiving and the thanksgiving meal was phenomenal. The servers and bartenders are friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this restaurant!
Nice Thanksgiving dinner
Ate outside, had a great brunch and the drinks were delicious!
great time as usual, just wish we had more time then 90 minutes
Excellent burger! I’m talking top 5 burgers in Boston.
Incredibly helpful and attentive staff.
Best brunch we've had out in... well, for sure for 2020. The quality of brunch that we couldn't just do at home.
Five Horses has such a great vibe, and the food was incredible! Everyone in our group loved what they ordered.
Cornbread was raw in the middle and over cooked on outside/edges.
The service was unbelievably slow. It took them 45-an hour to bring the cornbread out then another 40mins for our food. We watched two tables that came in well after us get serviced and their food way before us.
At one point our waitress just stop coming to our table and another waitress started helping us. The service made this a weird and disappointing experience for my wife and I.
My husband and I went for brunch delicious food I had fried chicken sandwich which was delicious and crispy as well as moist , my handsome had the southern comfort which had fried chicken , brisket and fired egg on top with grave he said that was good but gravely was a bit spicy but over all a good dish five horses has delicious brunch
The food was delicious, our waitress Natalie was so friendly, and overall it was a great experience. We'll be back for sure!
Usually a good experience eating at Five Horses Tavern, but this time we had the worst service I have experienced in a very long time. Waitress was more interested in socializing with her colleagues than attending to diners. We had to ask for water several times, she misunderstood the order that was put in (was only two of us), and we repeatedly asked for basics, such as silverware and napkins. She seemed young and completely inexperienced. The poor service negatively affected the overall experience.
Our server was awesome. Food excellent! Can't wait to try the beer.
Fantastic fish tacos and wonderful / friendly service. Will be coming back !
Great patio seating, away from the sidewalk so that pedestrians aren't breathing over your food. Server stayed far away. Some loud cars passing by here and there, but to be expected. Great Sunday menu accommodating both brunch and lunch.
Five Horses has good food, a really fantastic beer selection, and a good vibe. The service staff has always been friendly, knowledgeable, and just cool. They usually have good specials, so don't forget to ask/look for those. The shakshuka is my favorite, with green curry or the power bowl as close second choices if I want something a little healthier or vegetable-heavy. You can't go wrong with the friend chicken or mac 'n' cheese options here either. There is something for everyone.
Sat outdoors, great service, excellent beer list
My handsome husband and I came to five horses for brunch the Service was excellent and our waiter was very nice I had the Mac and cheese it was delicious , my husband had the Nutella Belgian waffle it had strawberries and homemade whip cream with Nutella on it to it was also delicious I highly recommend five horses for brunch
Went for brunch for the first time. The food was absolutely outstanding. I moved up here from Nashville, TN and thus ordered the Southern Breakfast (Biscuits, Sausage Gravy, Fried Chicken and Eggs) and it was incredible. By far, the best meal that I have had out since moving to Boston a year ago. I will be back.
The food is always reliably good at Five Horses. I can say I have been there for brunch and dinner, as well as drinks and snacks. They never disappoint.
Never disappoints! Food, drinks, and atmosphere is everything you can ask for!
Outstanding meal. Wings and cornbread were both exceptional. Had Mac and cheese as my entree; delicious. Good service & good outdoor seating situation. Will return!
The food and service was outstanding. The tavern burger was cooked perfectly to my requests and was very delicious.
The green curry was, surprisingly, quite good. Went well with a hefeweizen.
Made reservations for inside but my friend didn't want to eat inside so they were happy to seat us (due to availability) outside. I highly recommend the chicken Sammy sandwich-they have the best rolls I have ever had!
Pricey American pub food, solid beer selection, nothing to write home about
Great setup with indoor / outdoor seating available - we had a table near the open front windows looking out onto the sidewalk and the environment was perfect. Good food and good cocktails, along with an extensive beer list. Excellent service.
Great place and been many times prior to the pandemic but seems they just haven't got their stride noe that they're back.
I am so glad five horses is back open. The food is great and the service is always fantastic!
We went there and no one was there It is not open
We made a reservation on Open Table for my friends birthday brunch and when we got there- the restaurant wasn’t even open for business. Truly disappointed
Excellent tacos, chili and beer. Great athmosphere, too.
There were four of us having Sunday brunch. Reservation process was easy and table was waiting for us. Food was delivered after a smaller-than-typical wait but that was okay because the dishes at FHT are unique and varied. The server did forget a couple one beverage and one small item but that was corrected quickly. I had the three-egg omelet with thyme biscuit which were delicious. Their bar and beer selections are excellent.
We tried some unique menu items and we were not disappointed! What a great menu to tantalize the taste buds!
Service was slow on a fairly slow night. Food was good and since it was not too crowded, the noise level was manageable - we could hear each other talk.
We were pleased with the service. The food was very good. The fried chicken was a big hit. The power bowl was very good, the only negative was when adding fried chicken it was cut up in small cubes taking away from the experience. This was unexpected and a bit disappointing. The beer drinkers in our group enjoyed the selection and those that were not were able to enjoy wine and mixed drinks. The biggest issue we had was the noise level. It was extremely loud and difficult to hear each other. We were a party of 6 and even people sitting next to you or across from you were hard to hear. All in all it was a great experience and we would go back.
Great food and nice atmosphere. If you go on the early side, a mix of families with young kids combined with larger groups.
