Five Horses Tavern - Davis Square Ratings and Reviews

Five Horses is my favorite brunch spot in Davis. Whether a party of 2 or 8, they always make me and my friends feel welcome. The brunch menu is amazing and each time I go back, I feel the need to try something new. The brunch cocktails, including the mimosa flight, are a wonderful compliment to the food. Five Horses is now my go-to brunch spot. Love love love this place!

We've probably eaten here 20 times and it's been great every time. Cool, casual place with a diverse menu that has a lot of fun choices and a helpful staff. We went this time for brunch, but have also gone for lunch and dinner. Noise level is high, but in a more fun way than an obnoxious way. Davis Square is also good area to walk around before or after.
Pretty much everything about Five Horse ...
Pretty much everything about Five Horses was great during our visit. The wait staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The food came quickly and there was no wait time for drinks. Our seating was comfortable and spacious, and we were able to hold conversations, even with what appeared to be a full house. We were celebrating a birthday and everyone had a terrific time. There were many patrons enjoying themselves by the bar, but we didn't feel rushed to give up our table and had adequate time for dinner and drinks. All in all, a really great time. Tip - the scallop risotto was fabulous and should be a regular menu item.

We had a booth for 8 tucked in the back, perfect for our group. A collection of vegans, vegetarians and carnivores....every one of us found exactly what we wanted. Plus, one diner, our thespian son, was served before everyone so he could be stage-ready when we arrived to Tufts for the play. Warm, cozy, very VERY accommodating and the food was perfectly prepared and so delicious. This will be our new go-to in Davis Square, not just for special occasions but for a lovely setting to enjoy a wonderful meal. So happy we found you.

Five Horses Tavern offers a classy but fun experience. I took my friends here for a special reunion, and it was a great place! Great beer selection; love the flannel theme among the wait staff. Great service. Great area. GREAT all around, though portions could have been a little bigger!

Had dinner with my girlfriend. The service was okay, it seemed that everyone but our waitress was bringing out our food. One of the servers spilled some of my beer on the table as she handed it to me then didn't bother to clean it up. My girlfriend received an old-fashioned with no cherry. We asked for one but never received it.
The pork belly tacos were dripping with juice to the point of nearly being soggy. They were delicious, but I had to hurry and eat them.
The drunken wings, as always, were awesome.
Overall a decent night with a couple hiccups.

Waitress didn't know the menu well enough to waitress. Asked about ribs special was unsure of what that was and had to look at the menu. But pushed drinks, 1 was enough. Beer on draft wasn't great, tasted old. Didn't feel great after. Not the best place for a special date. Crowd looked like a college scene and age. Disappointed in overall experience.

Sunday Brunch menu is great. Large portions so come hungry. Make a reservation if you have more than 4 and don't want to wait too long. Pitcher of Bloody Mary's was worth it (ask for a little less ice). Drink menu is extensive. Something for everyone.

My third visit to this new favorite dining destination. Casual but nice, vibrant, sometimes loud atmosphere but generally fun. Food is somewhat eclectic, elaborate pub grub with a terrific draft and bottled beer assortment to choose from. Menu offers some very interesting gormet ideas. Beers are always changing and include numerous locals like Trillium! Service is generally prompt but it can get hectic. Some areas of the restaurant are tight seating but the booths are spacious. If you are a beer fan and want to eat a decent meal with your craft beer, this is a great choice.

Food was good and came out quick. Service is really
Lacking though. Our waitress was definitely trying to rush us out of the restaurant which became apparent when she almost took my plate away while I was eating. Our waitress definitely put a damper on our experience here.

Five Horse Tavern is a vibrant dining and bar restaurant. People of all ages can patronize the restaurant and feel comfortable. The menu is very diversified and includes any vegetarian and vegan entrees. The servers have always been welcoming and on top of our table every time we have been to this restaurant. The beer list is quite extensive, so any been enthusiast will enjoy the options available. The restaurant is also very accommodating for families with small children. Plan for a vibrant experience if you are there during dinner hours. Also, one should always order the tater tots! Give Five Horse Tavern a try. You'll want to go back.

Food is very decent here and somewhat eclectic for a pub-like eatery but the main attraction for me is the great beer list including a lot of local brewers like Trillium. It might be considered fun for those looking for a crowd and high noise level but it's a bit much if you want to enjoy conversation. It's a busy place. Too crowded and hectic to bring kids here, this place caters to the 20 and 30-somethings.

Unexpectedly good find in Davis Square. Menu has creative takes on standard bar/comfort food and great beer selection. Wait staff were knowledegable about beers, professional, and quick. Sunday evening not too loud or crowded. Definitely will go back.

Really tasty food, awesome cocktails. Fun seeing full of hipsters and foodies. Got the tacos. Was a little disappointed at how meager they were for the cost. They tasted great, though. I was really glad that I ordered an additional side, however.

This was a great place for drinks and dinner before seeing a show at the Somerville Theatre with a group of friends. The waitstaff were friendly, there was a great selection of food on the menu as well as gluten free options. The local beer selection was great as well, we noticed they offered a pitcher of sangria but after we ordered our drinks, I think we'll get that next time! It is always packed but it is worth the wait for a table.

Incredible craft beer menu is worth the trip. Brussels sprouts are a must. Entrees are hit or miss, but I have definitely had some good meals here. Waitstaff is on the ball and professional. The restaurant is comfortable and well appointed.

We waited 20 minutes before our waitress took our drink and food order, and another 15 minutes before we got our drinks. The food was expensive for the quality of food. This was my first time there after being told it was a great place, not impressed by service or food.

The food was amazing and the only complaint that I have was they were out of The Breakfast Club. My boyfriend was disappointed and chose Shakshuka by default. He was very happy with this decision and cannot complain that he tried something different on the menu.

I have come to Five Horses a number of times, but on this occasion we were there for my fiancee's birthday with a party of 12 and they could not have been more accommodating. The food/drinks are always excellent, but the service was particularly fantastic this time around with our large group, and when I asked our waiter about bringing a dessert w/ candle for a birthday song they were more than happy to oblige.
