Dark Horse is a great place to visit. The place is a little on the tiny side, but the atmosphere is good. The food and beer is even better though. Since they frequently do interesting brews that are out of the ordinary I would recommend checking the place out. The staff is friendly although I have been there when they were understaffed and it was difficult to get food, but overall this is a pretty sweet place.

Stopped on on our way back to Chicago. Easy to find off 94. Cool little place. Mugs everywhere. Good DH season selection and great food. Glad we stopped in.

Visited 06/21/2013. Beer Trip 2013 stop #3. The place is cool, the mugs are a nice touch. We Find plenty of great beers on the menu. The beer garden looks tight and the waitstaff is attentive. All around the best atmosphere and beer combo we have found yet. The store is sweet too. Will definitely be back. Dark Horse Please Expand your distribution into Iowa .... Please. Well on to Arcadia Ales in Battle Creek.

Let me preface my ranking here. I LOVE DH beers. I know two of the brewers. However, I have to be honest about my experiences here. Service is piss-poor. The staff come across like you are an inconvenience to their lives if you ask to be served. Beer tap selection is average for what they actually brew. Iíve found their general store to be more gratifying in landing their beers than my experiences in the bar. Overall, itís a brewery that I regularly visit, but you have to know what youíre getting so you donít walk out wanting to punch someone in the head.

Ambiance is awesome. Basically in a little barn with a small wooden bar, everything is wood and cajun looking, including the widdled mugs hanging from the ceiling. Service was excellent. I forgot my id at Bells, went back to Bells to get it, by the time we made it back, Dark Horse was closed, however the bartender kept it open just so we could have some beer and even hooked me up with a growler after the register had been cleared. Selection was good, with some one off, but I had hoped for a little more. Beers were very cheap for the quality. Overall a must stop in Michigan.

The feel of DH is unique with a bar, beer garden, skate park, store and skate shop all on the same property. Awesome vibe and sense of humor around the bar, (Tap Rumors board in the rest room was cool and try playing AC/DC on the juke box!). Plus the entire ceiling being mug club mugs was a cool sight to see. Service was good with a few staff answering my questions even while in passing. Great selection of brew in the store and decent selection on tap, (although I would have hoped for a couple more one offs available). Food looked outstanding though I didn't sample anything.

The mugs on the ceiling dominate the place, and probably make it seem much smaller than it really is. Lucky to get a table on a busy Friday night. Service was decent, but our server didnít really seem to know much about beer, which is disappointing. There was an event going on outside, but we were finally able to go out back. Huge beer garden--probably a big hit all summer. Beer selection was just ok, as I was hoping for more than two(?) off-beers. Great place to people watch, and everybody was very friendly. Age range of patrons was probably 1-88! Good to see that

Ambiance: Always crowded and often hot. Could use updating (bathrooms, strange hodge-podge floorplan). Still has a hometown dove bar charm though. Service: spotty at best. Everyone Iíve had serve me is certainly honest and thatís appreciated. But, sometimes Iíve had to wait 15 minutes for water, with the waitress passing me by several times. The merchandise store is lacking in customer support and friendliness as well. Selection: beer selection is good. 75% of stuff available in bottles/on tap elsewhere with the rest being specialties and one-off experomentals. Food: whoa what a delight. Stopping here over the past 5 years or so Iíve watched the kitchen go from good to great. Menu consists of pizzas and sandwiches mostly but the ingenuity as well as quality that go into each selection is amazing and the results are awesome. Value: nothing to complain about here, everythig seems reasonably priced in my eyes. Overall: one of my favorite places to stop in southern mid-Michigan. Recommended for the food first (only slightly) and then the great beer.
