The Red Horse
Awesome food and ambiance our server was very attentive as well.
I had not been here in years and was skeptical after reading bad reviews. The service and the food was still as excellent as I remembered. We were on the bar side and it was New Years Eve so it was a little loud. Would like to see the decor updated, but leave the wood finishes.
We had been here before a couple years ago and i don’t remember it being as bad as this time. We went for nye with the kids. First, one of the busboys was chewing on gum so loudly you could hear him across the restaurant. Our waitress seemed good at first but as soon as we got our food she disappeared! I ordered surf and turf and the only edible item was the lobster, the steak was too tough and fatty to even chew. My husband got the prime rib which was much better. As for the ambiance, it is an extremely dark restaurant. They only have small orange lights on the chandeliers above the table. We could hardly see the menus and the kids couldn’t even see to color their kids menu!
The Red Horse was fabulous service was great and the food was delicious. Will definitely go again Ken and his team always do a good job. Looking forward to 2020
Restaurant is something of a time capsule -- very much a 70's vibe with lots of aged wood decorating the walls and ceilings. The menu reflects many dishes that have remained popular since that time too. It was very pleasant to have a meal in a quiet room with tablecloths and candles. A good experience - the quality of the food was fair for the price and we had a great server.
Fantastic service and food was top notch. We just moved to the area so we will definitely be back
Price was very high for food that was not that tasty not cooked as ordered.tough steak
The restaurant itself is very nice however the food is way overpriced. The $30+ steaks were just ok, the fried pickles breading tasted old and the calamari was not cooked long enough.
Definitely not worth the $300 we paid for 2 couples with tip.
Waiter cleared the table before we were barely finished.
Excellent food, servers and Chefs. The prime rib was to die for and the quantity and quality was very good. I cannot say enough praises.
Great atmosphere and wonderful service! Came here for my husbands birthday and it was a delight!
Food is much better than other hotel restaurants. Ambiance is elegant with fabric tablecloths and candles. We were disappointed though because the wait staff refused to sing Happy Birthday to my birthday celebrant so we asked fellow diners to help us do so. And they did! Minimum 15% tip to the wait staff for their unkind gesture.
We came for a special occasion. It was wonderful. The food was excellent the owner of the restaurant came and greeted us and they brought out cake with a candle in it for our birthday boy.
I could not of asked for a better experience
The restaurant was lovely and the service was impeccable. The food was delicious with the sole exception of my fathers steak but our wonderful waiter took care of the problem expertly and made sure we were more than satisfied when we left.
Fantastic service, food quality and ambiance. As always! A sure bet for great steaks and seafood in Frederick!
Fabulous, everything. Highly recommend and will return. Thank you.
Waitress service was not good. Other than that restaurant was very good.
Great service and overall a nice place to go. Food was ok - not great, not as good as would be expected for the price.
The steak was great and service was awesome.
It is a bit warm inside but not uncomfortable, just don't think it'll be cold
The waitress was extremely nice and the staff was very attentive; however, the food and atmosphere was just not pleasant. We sent the appetizer back and our steaks were not cooked to order. The place is old and even smelled musty. The prices were extremely high for the lack of quality.
Food was very good. Everyone enjoyed their meal. We had steaks & fish
Always a good meal here. We came to celebrate Fathers' Day. Red Horse does well with beef and most of us had the rib eye steaks. Service was good, our orders were delivered accurately and the food was prepared properly. Quieter and less crowded than the chains. Come here to celebrate your next special occasion.
It was very dark inside; fortunately we sat near the window. The medium sirloin we ordered was cooked well done and the duck didn't have much flavor. This was my first time at the restaurant and, to be honest, my high expectations were not met. Service was excellent though.
The overall service was very good, and our waiter (Don) was excellent. The steaks were extremely tender, flavorful and cooked to perfection. Those in our party that had crab cakes and scallops said those were very good. The spinach salad was as good as it gets. Everyone seemed please with their food.
Conversation was easy, possibly because it was only half full. I had not been there for 20 years and felt comfortable with the ambiance, which seemed unchanged. Parking was easy.
We couldn't have asked for a better meal. Waitress was friendly and staff was very friendly. We were celebrating our 46th Wedding Anniversary so even though meal was little expensive, Well worth it.
I have had better steaks at Costco! Also I was told pink was medium rare and it came out half raw. We enjoyed the waitress and staff.
We've been coming to the Red Horse for special occasions for many years and have always had a delicious meal. This past visit was on Sunday and there were hardly any other people there. Our server was very pleasant and attentive. We'll continue to come here.
The prime rib was wonderful and so was the service! Colleen was a great waitress, paying attention to the smallest detail! Thank You!
Great steaks, decor is very dated, excellent service
Don was a fantastic server for our birthday celebration. The food was incredible. Filet and Ribeye was cooked perfectly! Looking forward to our next visit.
We came here for mother’s day dinner and to say we were disappointed would be an understatement. My parents used to come here frequently for a special occasion meal but they both agreed they would not be coming back in the future. Every time we placed an order, the waitress would come back and tell us they were out of something (mashed potatoes, calamari, cheesecake). I ordered a side salad instead of the vegetable and I’m glad as did as the vegetable of the day turned out to be two stalks of asparagus and then what looked like leftover green beans. Though it is worth noting that they forgot my salad and still had the nerve to charge a $4 substitution fee (which was not mentioned when I ordered). The ambiance also left something to be desired as they had bus boys breaking down tables and lifting chairs over our heads to move them to the next room. They did comp our drinks (after we had to ask given they were out of everything we ordered) but it was too little too late. We will not be returning.
Mother's day is always a balancing act. We had a large table. Our head waiter at times seemed to disappear but they had a great support team that helped fill in the gaps. The Apps were all on point. The cocktails were not only good but made as requested which on one is tough. Entrees were good, well seasoned. The shrimps were large. The steaks, their signature, were cooked spot on. The prime rib though was over cooked, that said they au jaus was not over salted which is a huge bonus. The cheese cakes and lava mess was a nice end. All that praise said Red Horse is quite pricey, but for special occassions, what does a little extra cash mean if you make two moms happy having thier family around the table for a good meal! Nicely done and thank you!
Went for the Prime Rib,but forgot it is weekends only.
Food was fine though a little pricey,
and it looks like they are in need of some marketing,
we where the only people in main dining area all night,
but have had the Prime Rib before and it was excellent,
so will be back for that some day soon I hope!
In some ways the Red Horse is a time capsule of the way nice family restaurants were when I was a kid. The decor and overall ambiance is circa 1977 with bad carpeting, wallpaper and knotty pine siding to complete the look. Thus, after we settled in, we were not expecting much. To our surprise, we had a very good meal with high-quality steaks that were well-prepared and delicious. They oysters were also very good (large and meaty local type) and the escargot was delicious (once a pinch of salt was added). The crowd there is pretty quiet and verges on the older side of middle aged, which may explain why they avoid a lot of salt in their cooking. Also, the bar is dated but solid and Don the bartender was tremendously good at serving drinks and food (very nice Perfect Manhattan with Jim Beam on the rail). Yes we will be back... we won't get overly dressed up, but we will have good steaks and seafood in a comfortable family restaurant.
Walked back into the 50's. Swinging saloon doors, wagon wheel chandeliers and a window allowing everyone to watch the grill master. Since we had steaks and chops, his work was critical. Loaded tater tots with spicy ketchup were just enough to start. Steak was tender and cooked just right. Garlic mashed were lumpy enough to be homemade with just the right amount of garlic. The vodka martini with blue cheese stuffed olives was perfect and the wine selection was adequate. Food and drinks were great but our waitress made it an overall enjoyable evening. She was friendly, efficient and helpful. We'll be back,
Very good "traditional" steak house. Not many of these wonderful places left. Large well-prepared steaks and chops served with warm bread and traditional sides. Western Decor. Highly recommended.
From the moment you walk in you're made to feel like you're an imposition on everyone there. For the outrageous price, I'd expect better service & friendlier people. You'll be sorely disappointed.
Nice service and setting. The portions were large and visually appealing. I would recommend that the steaks be better seasoned. They were tender and had a nice beef flavor. They just needed to have some pop to them.
Food is VERY overpriced. It's not that it's bad, but next time I'll go to the Outback or Texas Roadhouse and spend half as much to get a better steak. The sides were pretty unimaginitive for that price point (potato of choice and steamed vegetable medley). The place was nearly empty on the Friday night of Valentine's Day weekend, and it's pretty clear to me why.
