Cute restaurant! Our server with different colored hair (sorry I forget your name) but you were such a lovely waitress. Thanks for enchanting our night even further than the ambiance of the restaurant itself. They have lit candles at eacg table and it was very quiet this Friday night. I had a delicious cocktail and a burger which was also very yummy.

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

Food delicious, seemed prepared and held in warmer. Sauces excellent that were added to the dishes. Cream of onion soup was very different. Desserts limited at end of day, ordered apricot cookies nothing exceptional to finish off the dinner experience

Super cute restaurant! Our server was great, funny and quick. We enjoyed our drinks a lot and food though we didn’t feel the cost necessarily matched the value of the food. We do want to come and try dinner though!

First time here for brunch, and it was quite good. I am gluten free and I did find enough that I could safely eat.
