I have gone to this restaurant multiple times. Never had a bad meal. The portions are generous and made just as you order them. If not, they do not question and take it back and make it to your perfection. With a smile! Beers are awesome...

I was here in mid January with a couple of my former students for lunch. The food was excellent and the beers cold and a great variety also. They did not rush you as we were catching up on old times and just wanted to sit and relax while we were eating. The atmosphere was pub style which I liked... More

For me this place is good value for money and always consistent It is child friendly and has a children's menu. I don't drink beer but am told by my fellow dinners that it is excellent.

Ordered a neat martini and bartender delivered a 1/2 filled traditional sized martini glass. I asked how it was made and they make a 2 oz martini. I sent it back and ordered a burger which was so-so - not great, just average. Wouldn't go here again.

So I've been here for 8 months and shopped in this mall dozens of times but somehow never noticed this place. Turns out to serve an interesting selection of beers and pretty good food too. Good place for groups in particular

Have visited twice recently for mid afternoon beer and appetizer. The food is good. Had very good service at the bar on one visit. The other time we visited we were seated at a table and waited and waited for our food. Finally our waitress cheerfully and apologetically told us our order had gotten lost in the system, so we...

A great brewery and restaurant. I typically buy growlers from this place to bring the beer home with me. In addition, food here is great. Dinner menu has tons to choose from appetizers are fantastic. One of my favorite places. Great staff.

For ten bucks you can't go wrong fries were thick and delicious! A bit noisy near the pub but fun just the same!

We have never had a bad experience at John Harvard. Their staff is very friendly, their food is delicious, but more importantly, their beers are amazing and since they are always changing, you can try something new! My girlfriend and I came here for lunch and, despite it being the busy lunch rush, we were sat at a table in... More

Obviously a popular place to eat on Saturday night but we didn't have to wait long for a table. It's a big place, a lot of people so not exactly small intimate dining. Don't go here if that's what you're after. It however is a great place for families, friends and not so noisy you can't have a conversation. Good... More
