Five Horses Tavern - Davis Square Ratings and Reviews
Went with a group for brunch. The french toast sticks are AMAZING. Everyone enjoyed their food; we all went around tasting each other's plates. Very friendly server. I've been here for dinner several times as well and the food is always amazing. Definitely one of my favorite restaurants in Davis Square!
A nice spot in Davis Sq. Busy and vibrant at 6p on a Friday. Three person party at hi top table near the front window. Great beer and drink selection. The potato tacos and the Cuban sandwich were delicious as was the white bean hummus. Brussels sprouts appetizer had a nice kick, but needed more Brussels and less bacon. Server was attentive and friendly.
We were a huge party of 12 for brunch and had absolutely no issues - the mimosa flight was ah-mazing, as was the sangria, bloody mary and the beer selection never disappoints! Our server was courteous, knowledgeable and had a great attitude - we never felt rushed and he checked in with us throughout the 2.5 hours that we were there! And this is why Five Horses Tavern will remain one of our top brunch spots in Davis Square!
We had a 2 year old with us and I wouldn't say it was an ideal place for families with young children; no children's menu and no activities provided to keep the little one entertained. It is definitely a hip, young-professional's type of restaurant located in the heart of Davis Square..
Handmade pretzel is great, mustard a bit spicy but delicious, and the boursin-like dip is very good. I had a kinda Cuban sandwich which was a nice interpretation of the sandwich, and my companion had the Tavern burger, cooked to perfection and delicious with cheesy grits.
Five Horses is a decent Davis Square spot. I was a little bummed out the most recent time I went (this past Saturday) because my boyfriend and I asked for a high top next to the window and were told they were reserved for parties of 3 or more, and shortly afterwards a couple was seated at the same table, alone. Our server was a little inattentive but he had a LOT of tables so that's forgivable. Overall nothing to keep me from going back, but worth noting.
Wonderful ambiance! Make sure to notice the cool chandelier in the entrance. We went for a pre-theater dinner and chose the perfect place! The grilled fish tacos were yummy and the perfect amount to eat after sharing the pan roasted brussels sprouts and beyond fantastic cornbread The cornbread could basically be your dessert :-) and everyone who works there seemed happy and they all worked as a team! Will definitely go back :-)
I had a great dinner with my friend here, but it was kind of an odd group the night we went and the service was really slow for drinks. Also my ex boyfriend walked in which was awkward*. There was a random woman downstairs who was barking....
*I know the restaurant cant control that but I hope it made someone laugh.
Five Horses never disappoints! This is a go-to for my sisters and I to grab some american comfort food that is always delicious. We can't go without ordering the corn bread and of course the tater tots! We have celebrated birthdays and other events with family when looking for a delicious meal with a good atmosphere. Nothing too fancy but quality food and drinks. highly recommend.
