I loved this place! Sit up at the bar and watch the magic happen. The bar staff produce a range of different and interesting beverages. Come with friend or just sit by yourself you won’t be lonely.

A place for beer lovers, but even non-beer drinkers will appreciate the casual pub food. Surprisingly kid friendly for people with young children.

I had high hopes for the High Horse when they first opened. I like that they have outdoor seating (at least in warmer weather) I wasn't terribly impressed with the menu. I ordered a burger which came to me well overcooked (I ordered it mid-rare)...More

The high horse is a restaurant and at night the upstairs is a bar. The restaurant serves burgers, salads, sandwiches, steaks, ect. that are all locally grown. It has a nice atmosphere, very relaxed and not too hipster. The burgers are really good and made...More

Initially I was impressed by High Horse's menu. However, having ordered a burger on multiple occasions, I've realized that they are incapable of cooking a burger to order. I always order my burger medium rare and have gotten it back utterly raw, and overcooked all...More
