Stopped at this beautiful location on the way home from Huntington. Location and patio are the only good things about this restaurant. There were five of us. We asked the waiter about a drink menu, beer list, wine list or something. He told us we could go to the bar and figure out what we wanted because they didn't have... More

Went here with family and on this particular day they seemed to be off their game a little. Usually things are really top shelf, but not this trip. However, this will not prevent me from returning every chance I get. Service seemed a little slow, and part of my food was not as warm as it should have been. Maybe... More

We visit here about once a month. We like the views of the Ohio River and the food. They have a wonderful and varied menu. It's all so fresh tasting. Their fresh salsa is awesome!! They have a little bit of everything. But you have to try the corn muffins! Their sweet tea is fabulous.

This is probably my fifth or sixth time to the Wild Horse in Pomeroy and this time like all the others was good. The location has a nice view of the river. If it's not too hot or cold you can sit outside under their covered seating area and have a nice view of the river. If not, inside is... More

My family had lunch here. We enjoyed it very much. There were lots of choices on the menu to accommodate any appetite. Prices were reasonable and the staff was very nice and helpful. Would definitely put this on my must stop here list the next time we are in town.

A jewel for Meigs County. Totally great place to relax by the river with a good view and outstanding chimichangas. Friendly staff!

Waitress did not notice I didn't eat any of my meal. Asked if I needed a to go box. Manager comped the steak but still charged for the baked... More

(I don't know why TripAdvisor calls this "Wild Horse Mercantile Co." My receipt states "Wild Horse Cafe," and the address is the same. My wife and I drove from Lancaster specifically to have a meal at the Wild Horse Cafe because of its great food and its great view of the Ohio River. We sat on the shaded porch and... More

We decided to have lunch here today to celebrate Father's Day. While we don't live far away it's not often that we make a trip on a Sunday afternoon to go somewhere to eat. With it being Father's Day we had to wait a bit for a table for our party of 6 as there were several others waiting as... More
