This tavern is more restaurant than bar, and it has some distinctly laid-back, neighborhood vibes. Imagine a Blue Ribbon Brasserie opened by your parents. That’s Jack the Horse. Service is friendly, and they serve things like roast chicken, oysters, and steak. When you want to have a low-key night and spend a decent amount on a good dinner, this place is a solid option. It’s also an ideal place to bring your parents.
