Put a list of hosts in a txt file. Replace MyService with the name of the service you want to restart.
$hosts = Get-Content MyHosts.txt
foreach ($i in $hosts)
{
Write-Output "restarting service on $i"
Get-Service -Name MyService -ComputerName $i | Stop-service
Get-Service -Name MyService -ComputerName $i | Start-service
}

Hello mjm21 and OriNetworks,

Here is a slightly different method. Let me know if this works better, its based off of another question I helped with

http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/Windows_Server_2008/Q_28523050.html

$hosts = Get-Content MyHosts.txt
foreach ($i in $hosts)
{
Write-Output "restarting service on $i"
Restart-Service -InputObject $(Get-Service -Computer $i -Name MyService)
}

Just an fyi: you would need the proper rights on the remote system to restart the service possibly by being a local administrator in order for this to work. Thanks Joshua for the enhanced version.
