Have You Dined at Sly Horse Tavern Lately?

Sly Horse Tavern, Crofton MDLunch with friends under an umbrella outside the Sly Horse Tavern on the Village Green is one of my favorite things about living in Crofton.  It has been for years… no, decades.

Some people go to the Sly Horse for their food, but I like this restaurant more for its ambiance.  There’s really no place else like it nearby.  And I can usually find something on the menu to tempt me.

In Winter, Sly Horse is the place I go for my “fireplace fix” since I now live in a home without a fireplace.  But I enjoy the relaxing environment of dining outside in such pleasant surrounds when the weather is nice.  Even when I opt for air conditioning on a blistering hot summer’s day, the view of outside diners from a cozy wooden booth in this Williamsburg style tavern is very relaxing.  And I nearly always see someone there that I know from the neighborhood.

Dining at Sly Horse Tavern Speaking of “tavern” – My personal preference would be for a more 21st century “tavern-like” menu – you know, burgers and reubens and the like (similar to the menu at Olney Ale House in Montgomery County) – but Sly Horse feature more elaborate items such as “Marinated Grilled Salmon Topped with Dill and Cucumber Creme Fraiche.”  Even though that’s not my personal taste, their selections obviously appeal to a lot of other people because Sly Horse has been in business since 1985.

The Village Green, where Sly Horse Tavern is located, is just inside the main gates of “Old Crofton,” across the street from Crofton Country Club in a Williamsburg-style “green” which houses small businesses and professional offices.  The restaurant itself looks much like Raleigh Tavern in Historic Williamsburg – a lovely place to hold a private party, such as a rehearsal dinner or holiday office party, and they offer a catering menu for events off the premises, as well.

If you live or work anywhere in the Greater Crofton area and haven’t yet tried dining at the Sly Horse, I highly recommend it – especially on a beautiful summer day or evening.
