The service at The Red Horse was good but, the food was sub par. Our salad was wilty, the steak was under-cooked, and the mashed potatoes were dry. The oysters Rockefeller were small, dry and overcooked and the bread was not anything better than a cheap grocery store loaf. The restaurant has not updated since I went as a child. It is stuck in the 1980's. Disappointing date night.

A dated, but very clean Frederick classic. Clearly stuck in the 1980's decor, but well maintained and very well kept.

Food was prompt, well presented and very tasty.

The owners should consider a revamp, ditch the wood and old time chairs: keep the food and service.

When the Red Horse was in Hagerstown MD. my wife and I loved it. We decide to visit the one in Frederick MD since the one the one in Hagerstown has closed. We drove an extra half hour to get to it but it did not disappoint

We had our first meal at Red Horse for my husband’s birthday. The appetizers were amazing (seared ahi tuna bites and shrimp cocktail). My filet mignon was very tender and cooked just right but not as flavorful as I’d hoped. I’m from Texas, so I have high standards for good steak. This was close, but not as good as steakhouses back home. My husband felt the same about the crab cakes: good, but not fabulous. It was really nice that they gave my husband a free dessert for his birthday. Service was attentive and we liked the quiet retro ambiance, so we might go back and try other items.

The staff here is always great. In addition to the good food, the cocktails are generous as well.

We ordered the surf and turf. We expected the steak to be a filet. It was New York strip steak and a bit fatty.

I think you would have to go pretty far to get a better steak. Always a very pleasant place. The open ceiling with all the wood is not only attractive, but seems to keep the noise down and the fireplace is quite inviting. The service is always good, but this night the busboys were really exceptional. Very professional and attentive without being the least bit intrusive. It seems like little detail, but when even the little details are taken care of so well, it really makes for a very enjoyable meal.
