The food was excellent and the service is top-notch. The manager made a point to come over to our group to welcome us and ask how everything was. I will definitely be back.

Tasty food, overall prices are great value compared to experience. I hope they don't hike their prices like all other restaurants and make it unaffordable and out of budget for it's customers.

About the restaurant
Horseshoe Grill in North Reading has been family-owned since the 1920s when it was originally a supper club for members only. That changed in 1957 and, since then, patrons have come from all over to sample the famous ribs that have made Horseshoe Grill an institution. The relaxing atmosphere inside makes it the perfect place to get to work on a rack of ribs, lobster Rangoon, Thai chili calamari or nachos. There is lighter fare at Horseshoe Grill too like the Asian chicken lettuce wraps, cheese quesadilla, ahi tuna and summer fruit salad. There are gluten-free options on the menu too.

We went to Dave & Busters for a night of dinner and gaming. The food is what you'd expect from a typical bar menu (chicken fingers, burgers, wings, fries) along with some healthier options (salmon, salads). The food was nicely presented and hot, although a bit on the salty side (but nothing out of the norm for salty-fried bar-menu items). The wait staff was attentive and helpful. The dining area is a bit dark (punctuated with lights from the HUGE wall-size TVs playing live sports), but we expected this. Overall, a fun night!
