I like both, though it's been a while since I've been to Standard Tap. At Dark Horse, I especially recommend the crab cakes, grilled veggie sandwich, and mac 'n' cheese. Nice salads, too. They have a dining room which I believe is kid-friendly.
Late response. Glad you went to and had good experience at the Standard Tap. That's my favorite neighborhood pub, for 7 years! Food is always excellent. If you are ever in town over the weekend, you should go there for brunch (Saturday and Sunday).
