Somewhat off-the-beaten-path, even though it is in Shopper's World Plaza. Stuck in a small corner, you might miss it but it is the only food establishment and brewery in the plaza. It's roomier that you will expect and it has 2 distinct sections -- the...More

I am a pretty regular visitor to this microbrewery and restaurant. The beers are good, food nice and prices reasonable.

John Harvard's is great for a group of any size and the staff are friendly. Recommend the buffalo chicken wings!

We're happy to have rediscovered John Harvard's ale house. Food is good to great, and the draft beer selection is excellent.

Visited on a busy Saturday evening, a party of Seven. We all ordered burgers and beers on tap. Burgers were very good, onion rings were considered a star. Beers were enjoyed. Atmosphere is somewhat like a large beer hall and uninviting. Service was merely OK,...More

Visited earlier this month and we needed to find a good place to eat at 9:45. They were open and amazingly were pretty packed with people either eating or watching the game. The food was pretty good. I had the salmon and it was good...More

I did not know what to expect when John Harvard’s Brew House was recommended. Excellent recommendation! Very big restaurant with many tables and different rooms. The Shepard’s pie came out piping hot with a big layer of mashed potatoes on top of the meat and...More
