Really friendly service sets this apart, good old fashioned hospitality. Urban style tavern with good 'standard' and traditional food options done well and prepared quick.

Getting somewhat overpriced for what is delivered and service is Ok without being noteworthy. Quality of food fair and not a lot of choice.

The restaurant, One Good Horse, has a feel reminiscent of the by-gone era of early 1900's horse racing days. Its early 20th century-infused decor holds an echo of the times when prosperity and the great horses had people flocking to the races; taking their chances on the big names and champions like Phar Lap, Seabiscuit and Cardigan Bay.
