About the restaurant
Huszar is a charming, family-owned restaurant and tavern featuring homemade Hungarian Old-World Cuisine, specialty craft beer selections, exclusive wine imports, and a full bar.

"With Huszár, we reach back to our roots. My mom would often tell stories of her family life in Hungary, and my dad would often reflect upon his military service there that he was so proud of. However, it was the stories of my grandfather being a proud Huszár, handpicked to serve as an elite soldier on horseback, that I draw my inspiration from. Their stories instilled me with a deep pride in my heritage."

Here are our hours of operation:
Tuesdays - Saturdays 12pm - 8pm
Sundays - 12pm to 7pm

First time here, for Mother's Day brunch - my family and I liked it; the brunch selection was unique and broad; all family members found something they liked. Service very attentive. We'd come back, and would recommend it to others.

As always the food is hot and delicious, and the new summer drink menu looks delicious. We tried Ducky’s first wave. 😋😋😋 we can’t wait to try another. Renee, Rashella, Nico, Reid, and Scott made sure everything was perfect. Sorry if I forgot anyone.

Pleasantly surprised. Over the last several months we had started to pick other restaurants over PF Changs because we felt the portions were getting smaller and smaller. Last night's dinner changed our minds. The portions were hearty, the food was tasty with some zing and the service was extremely efficient and friendly.
