“Very good food and service. Was better, but still very good.”
Reviewed 21 August 2014 via mobile

Staff and food are very good. Especially in an area where there is little to no choice. Only negative is that many of the exotic and wild fare such as Elk and ostrich have been removed and replaced with more generic items.

“Delicious dinner”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

I recently had dinner here with a friend, and was pleasantly surprised at how wonderful the food was! I ordered the lake trout and it was wonderful -- cooked perfectly and tasted very fresh. We shared an order of fried asparagus as an appetizer, which was also delicious. Our server, Faye, was friendly, polite, and attentive. She checked with us at exactly the right times and she was very professional throughout. I would look forward to dining here again the next time I am visiting the area.

“Outstanding!”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

The food is very upscale but you can fine dine without overspending if you want. The chef had some very interesting dinners on the menu. They use local produce and there were menus for Vegetarians and gluten restricted diners. Other than a very noisy child/children (occasionally running around the corner) it was very cozy-the restaurant can't control the kids but the parents should have! Meal was delicious and reasonable.
Don't know why we haven't eaten here before but we will visit again.

“Just So-so This Time”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

My husband and I last went to Black Horse Restaurant when we were visiting a B&B in Adamstown. When we went three years ago, the food was delicious. This time...not so much. I wouldn't complain about the decor because that's not something that bothers me...but it was a bit dated. The customer service was fantastic...The food LOOKED & smelled delicious, the plating was magnificent, but the taste??? Everything was VERY bland. The honey-chipotle wings just tasted like honey...no chipotle, no seasoning. Everything else we got...mussels & linguini, steak...all very bland. Cooked well, but not seasoned well. I don't know what changed since the last time we came, but the next time we are in the area, I don't think we'll be back. For the prices they charge, I truly expected more...

“A great find!”
Reviewed 9 July 2014 via mobile

We have spent a lot of time in this area, but have never gone to the Black Horse until recently. So glad we finally discovered it!
We have been there twice so far and the food was great both times. The crab cakes are wonderful!
Highly recommended for a special occasion or nice dinner out.
