Nice family dinner outside. Arrived early without a reservation and we were able to be seated. Menu is limited. We each ordered something different from the menu, short ribs and mussels were the win. Lovely service from Laura and Missy the manager. Love the outdoor seating and atmosphere but there were a few misses, need another visit!

Darling restaurant. Decor very fun - I sat in a refurbished church pew. Excellent service. Staff attentive at just the right level.
Delicious meal. Will definitely return. Told our hotel to add Diving Horse to their recommendation list.

We had a delicious dinner on Memorial Day 2017. Wonderful service and creative offerings. Definitely worth the trip from Sea Isle City even with the bridge out of commission.

I ate at the Diving Horse several times this past summer, and I will continue to come back when I am Down the Shore. There are two different seating atmospheres - home-style/casual on large tables outside where you cozy up with others, or more traditional seating inside. On each occasion I ate inside. If you've read other reviews you know the portions are not large. However, the Diving Horse is more of a fine dining (don't mistake for "stuffy") experience and as such the portions tend to be more "normal" sized. I prefer to walk away from a meal satisfied, not stuffed. The menu is online (with prices), so the expense should not come as a surprise. Also, the place is BYOB (again as stated on the website) so you know going in you have to come prepared - which is great. The food was awesome - from entrees to desserts! The service was friendly, and the food was prepared and served in a reasonable amount of time. Treat yourself to the Diving Horse - at least once!

The food and service is excellent but the price was outrageous. I'm glad we ate there and would love to return but I need to pay the mortgage next month
