Black Horse Tavern & Grill plates palate-pleasing portions of hearty American favorites in a mood-lit tavern setting. Start things off with an appetizer such as the tavern hush puppies, a blend of mashed potatoes and jack, cheddar, and parmesan cheeses, coated with panko breadcrumbs and fried to a golden brown ($6.99). Half-pound burgers ($7.99+) cheerily anticipate tongue-borne rollycoaster rides, while sandwiches such as the house-favorite hanger steak ($8.99) envelop meat in toasty french rolls. Entrees include the bacon-wrapped meatloaf, which proclaims savory judgment from atop a mountain of mashed potatoes, steamed vegetables, and cornbread ($9.99), and mouthwatering steaks ($11.99+), the meaty jewel in the menu's crown. Lunch and breakfast choices feed appetites throughout the day so stomachs don't lose interest and secede from the body.
Diners can plop down at a cushy booth or sidle over to the bar for a libation. The rich brown tones of the tavern's floor and furnishings leave visitors surrounded in dark woods, like camping trips that don't use the buddy system to keep track of everyone.
Black Horse Tavern & Grill
At Black Horse Tavern & Grill, the decor is not surprisingly centered around framed pictures of horses and horse head statues—all black, of course. The equine-heavy furnishings surround the eatery’s main star, the bar—also horseshoe shaped—which sits in the center of the room. There, bartenders pull from taps of Blue Moon, Stella Artois, and a handful of craft brews. Back in the kitchen, chefs celebrate all things American with large-portion entrees that include made-from-scratch fish and chips, potato croquettes, marinated hanger steak, and bacon wrapped meatloaf paired with mashed potatoes smothered in gravy. A number of flat-screen TVs are tuned to the day's big sporting events, and the bar supplies handheld electronic trivia games that can be played against strangers or your split personality.
