This is one of my "go to" restaurants in town. The food is always yummy and the service is always outstanding. I recommend the Sea Bass, the Burger and always get the soup of the day. Vegetarian dishes never disappoint.

It had been many years since I had dinner here. There were no white tablecloths on most of the tables. The menu itself was disappointing. It would have been nice to have warm bread. It would also be helpful to exchange a side dish for another. The Kale was the best thing about the meal as far as the food... More

Reserving for dinner was easily done on the Open Table App. The bar as you come in is very busy, so head back to the bar in the off to the left of the dining room in the rear if you have to wait to be seated. The service is always very good at Equus and the adjoining bar, Jack's.... More

Jack's lounge, as it's referred to now, offers a wide variety of surf and turf options. I had a delicious bone in pork chop sitting atop a bed of pureed sweet potatoes next to grilled brussel sprouts. my wifes grouper was the daily fish special it was so good she would not share! The waitstaff made you feel at home,... More

We met some friends at Jacks for drinks and dinner. The evening was fun, the food was great and the drinks were perfect. A little expensive, service was excellent. Small place and could get crowded, but not when we dined. Worth a try!

My friend and I asked for a recommendation for dinner and were steared to Equus. Our waitress was very helpful and has been with the restaurant for 27 years. We were younger than the average age at the restaurant but pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. They are famous for their mushroom soup and we enjoyed a bowl... More

My friends and I visited on a Wednesday night. We were a bit surprised when we walked in the door because there were so many middle aged men - it felt like we were going thru a "meat market" gauntlet but we were seated immediately (we had reservations) and ordered wine and cocktails. Everyone was very happy with the drinks... More

I reviewed the restaurant before they were consolidated into one restaurant going with both names. It's still a very friendly place, fantastic service, and excellent food with a price range that you can live with. Everything from prime-beef burgers to sea bass entrees, and there's no pressure to order off the top of the list. Good selection of beer on... More
