    It was good, but the restaurant was extremely hot and crowded. Felt too close to people next to us. Food was really good though. They only had one hard cider from their menu which had like 4 or 5 listed.

    Our large group of young people, many with physical and intellectual disabilities, thoroughly enjoyed our brunch! Our server, Elka, could not have been more accommodating. The food was delicious and the restaurant is very comfortable. They are also fully accessible! Thank you Five Horses!

    Fried chicken sandwich was fantastic and the cheesecake was phenomenal. Cheddar jalapeno mashed potatoes and the tropic thunder cocktail were average at best. Our server was very good but the host/server forgot both to bring an extra fork and later the bill when asked. We dined outside and it was extremely enjoyable.

    Seated right away, server was very helpful. Had mix and match taco’s, only negative was the mahi was rather salty, the shrimp were the little ones, but there were a bunch. Corn bread was great and chicken tends also. Food was very temperature hot, which was better than getting food that has been sitting.

    Usually love Five Horses but the raspberry goat cheese salad was mostly greens. Hamburger okay, even though I ordeexrare, there wasn't any grill markson meat, and salad greens doused in dressing which made it unbeatable. Service good and will give another chance.

    Fun place with an awesome draft beer selection and a great vibe. Unfortunately it's also really overpriced. 5 of us ordered 3 alcoholic beverages, 1 app, 5 entrees, and zero dessert, and the bill came to $156. Add 20% tip and we spent nearly $190, or $38/person. For a tavern dinner. To me, that's outrageous.

    Food was excellent! Server seemed to forget about us. Half our party ended up leaving before he brought the check. Not the best ambiance on the patio in a busy square between the sidewalk and the steeet, but liked that we could have our dog out there with us. If we weren’t with the dog but still in these Covid times, would be nice to sit in the restaurant area that is completely open to the outside.

    I love the location of this place and the open doors! The tacos were cold and the wings were lacking in flavor which was unfortunate given the price of everything. They have a great drink selection at moderate prices. Worth trying out!

    Our server was absent at times. We were seated in the path of the door which made us too cold to enjoy our meal. We ordered a burger and it did not even come with fries, that was strange. Overall we were rushed, before we could even leave, the staff brought over ppl to sit at our table and we couldn’t even get out of our spot.

    We were looking to find a place close to friends who came into town for the marathon and, after a bit of searching, found FHT. We had drinks and appetizers. The hummus was great but the pretzels were a little overcooked. The mustard served with the pretzel was outstanding. We will try it again.
