We were actually trying to get to Jack Abbys which has a great reputation, but do to a lousy GPS signal and snowstorm we ended up very hungry at John Harvards. First it's located in a strip mall. Which is fine. I was immediately surprised...More

Convenient location in Shoppers World, great atmosphere and history in the stained glass and storyboards. Can see the beer storage behind the glass walls and sometimes the brewer is at work in the room behind the bar. Typical pub food, good seasonal craft beer selection....More

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

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

I hadn’t been to John Harvard’s in some time, but was in Framingham one day and decided to stop in for lunch. I took a seat at the bar – service was good, as was the food (Santa Fe Salad, $13.98). But then, I’ve always...More
