Serving consistently good food in downtown Riverhead. One of a few restaurants open for lunch. Worth the trip.

This was the final Stop on our wine tour. We stopped here for dinner in their private room. It was the perfect ending to a great day. We had beer and wine with a three course dinner in their large private catering room.

We were in the area and, never having tried it, stopped in for a quick lunch. I ordered the 14 oz. chopped bison steak with waffle chips and American Cheese. It came on a small bun and was enormous and perfectly cooked. I would order it again in a second. My wife had apple squash soup and a salad and... More

After having lunch at Dark Horse with a friend who is gluten intolerant (and who LOVED the menu), I asked about catering. They do it, and they are so good that I will never use anyone else. The food was delicious, and all I had to do was pop things in my oven. Dark Horse has catered any number of... More

I was glad to find gluten free options clearly labeled. The fried calamari was delicious. The pizza crust was a bit hard, but getting past that I was able to eat about 1/2. My husband had the Merlot steak. It came with collard greens and mashed potatoes. The live music - a man on keyboard - was a nice touch.... More

We asked for a beer list, the waitress named the styles of beers without telling us who made them, which was very disappointing for a place that had some craft beers on tap and we're into craft beers. One person of my party ordered the corn chowder (in October) and was told it was out of season even though it... More

It was a fluke when I first walked through the door a couple years ago, and only travel out east when I want to spoil myself. Was last there 25 Sep 16. As always awesome!

The food is not good. It is not prepared or served properly. I got a toothpick in my drink. I did not like the attitude when I had the problem. I would not recommend.

We had been there three times previously and everything was average or above. The menus we were given at the restaurant this time barely represented the menu on-line and the chef who prepared our entrees was not too familiar with what was on the menu. The waitress did not give us cornbread normally a standard until we asked for it.... More
