    Pheasant Run Resort has something for everyone.....but, dining at the HARVEST REST. is always special. This has become one of our regular fine dining restaurants, and the Jambalaya Lounge at 10 p.m. is great for dancing.

    Whatever the special occasion or just a nice dinner for two.......this is the place. The restaurant itself is simply wonderful. The hostess, Michelle and our favorite waitress, Nichole always make our evening dining (5 Stars +). Tonight we dined on prime rib for the first time....it was simply the best. Of course, if you decided to make it a weekend .... the golf course is a real treasure....we love playing 18 holes. Late night....go over to Jambalaya for dancing to DJ or on occasion live music. The resort has much to offer......theatre, comedy club, shops, etc.

    I'm not sure how they did this, but they managed to allow me to make reservation on a day they were closed. According to the Pheasant Run, they don't keep consistent hours during the summer, it depends on how booked the hotel is whether they open the restaurant. Great info to know AFTER I booked the reservation and arrive at a closed restaurant!

    The food was good, and the presentation was nice! Our waitress was always on top of everything! I requested that the waitress say something to my sister in law because it was their 50th anniversary and she greeted us at the table with that message! I will return.Also, our waitress even gave one of the desserts on the house for our celebration!

    Dined on 8/7/2014
    I wish I could review this restaurant, but after taking my reservation via OpenTable, it ended up not being open that day! And not due to an emergency closure, it appears to just not be open on Thursdays. This is not what it says on their website, and wasn't what I was told by the Pheasant Run representative when I called because the doors were still locked when we got there (a bit early). This was a complete disappointment as it was my aunt's birthday and we were seeing a show at the comedy club next door that same night. Because we didn't realize until so late what had happened, we couldn't leave the resort for dinner and had to eat at the only restaurant open at the resort. It was good, but not exactly what we were looking for.

    I thought that the atmosphere was sophisticated and classy. The food was good - not great, but good. If you decide to dine there I'd recommend the beet salad and the baked Brie. The tuna I had was cooked well but overran with spices and sauces. It was like having barbecued ahi tuna. Risotto was good but had been prepped for awhile - so it tasted a little warmed over. Overall I'd say it's a decent experience. The prices are well on the high side - so be prepared.

    The food was waaaay overpriced. Not many things to choose from. The hostess was super rude. I ate my soup and the bread they served. My steak tasted old. The rest of the food wasn't worth eating either. Won't be going back.

    From the greeting at the door and inquiry as to our time frame needs, the staff was superb! As a 4 yr anniversary dinner i could not have been more pleased. The Salmon and Filet of Beef were done perfectly and the portions were larger than I expected. At no time did I feel rushed and the waiter was charming and polite. Next time I am in the area, I will definitely eat here.

    We often eat at Harvest when we take in a play at the Fox Valley Rep. It's a quiet restaurant with very good food. The citrus/miso salmon was very nicely prepared and presented. My husband had the shrimp special in an asiago broth and said it was also very good. Service was attentive, but not intrusive. Good wine list and ambiance. We are repeat customers and will return again.

    Went here for an anniversary dinner, and it was an amazing experience. Called ahead to have the bottle of wine on ice, and they were very knowledgeable of the menu, and what wines would go well with our tastes. Completely made her night to have a bottle chilled for us on our arrival! Food was amazing, the lobster and shrimp bisque was unbelievable, and they even gave us a dessert on the house for our special evening! Definitely would come back again as this night out was one to remember.

    Pheasant Run is a resort. The Harvest is a wonderful dining restaurant in the resort featuring excellent food options from appetizers right through the delicious main course options. Tonight we dined on the Beet Salad and the Salmon which were excellently prepared. Many of the staff have been working at the "Harvest" for well over 25 yrs. They are the best and we tell them so each time we come in. We love dining here....try it....I'm willing to bet you'll love it also.

    My sister and I celebrated our birthdays at the Harvest. The food was mouthwatering. First, we had the beet salad, which the restaurant thoughtfully split in two, so we both could enjoy it. We had the prime rib, and the ravioli w/sea scallops. The prime rib was cooked to perfection, and melted in your mouth. The ravioli and sea scallops were luscious and flavorful. For dessert our waiter brought dessert for our birthdays, and with coffee was a perfect ending to our meal. We will definitely be back the the Harvest and not just for a special occasion!

Valet brushed off car and put snow brush on passenger seat when he started the car and it was covered with snow that we had to brush off before my wife could sit down. The beginning and end seat the mood for a bad evening.

    Wonderful evening of dining. In addition to the restaurant itself (great food and service) the resort has so much going on. After dinner Jambalaya Bar is a lot of fun (DJ and live band on occasion) for dancing or just one more cocktail. Highly recommend the resort for fine dining at the Harvest Rest. and a night out of fun.

    Harvest Restaurant food quality was fair to poor. I ordered Halibut When it came it really smelled fishy. Our wonderful server, Jeanette, readily took it back & brought me prime rib. It smelled delicious but was not chewable. The next night, I ordered pasta, which was edible but not special. Also, the Caesar salad dressing had barely any taste. Maybe new recipies or a new chef!!!! The rooms in the tower were clean & comfortable but the maid didn't replace towels or make the bed nicely or replace used coffee including not cleaning the pot after use. We won't be back :(

    Dined on 2/1/2014
    The service started out great but due to a 25 private party that ordered off the menu we had a forty min wait for our dinner from soup. To meal. We had to say we need to cancel as we had tickets to a musical. Need less to say we have to rush eating. Took off 2 drinks for our wait. My husband asked if he coukd switch out the potatoes for mushroom risotto said no problem. Well it was unbelievable what they served him. It was not mushroom risotto. This was to be a birthday celebration no time as would be late for the musical. We don't get out often as we have a special needs son. 2 drinks on the house that we really didn't want isn't compensation. Disappointing. Manager was aware.

    The service at this establishment was horrific. We are a young couple but usually always tip well even if the service is mediocre. Server only came by to give us our food. Never checked backed, never asked if we needed anything else. Just rude. Food was ok but portions seem under par. Will not go back nor will I recommend to anyone staying or around Phesant Run.

    This place was definitely not what we expected. We were out for a romantic evening with good food, good wine and great company. Upon arriving we were one of 5 tables of people. Found this very odd for a Saturday night. The atmosphere made for a very uncomfortable evening between me and my date. For the amount we paid for our dinner we were less than satisfied. Needless to say we will not be going back.

    We had an early reservation time so we were seated immediately. Our server, Nicole, was very attentive, informed us about the specials for that night, and asked us if we had any questions about the selections. As we had tickets for the play, Nicole paced our drinks, salad, and entrees so we could enjoy our dinner and have time to pick up our tickets and get to the theater without rushing. My husband's steak was "grilled to perfection"--no pink and not burned to a crisp! I chose the mahi, salmon and shrimp special. It was delicious. I enjoyed every different taste the chef chose to complement each fish. Thoroughly enjoyable time!

    Met another couple and picked Harvest at Pheasant Run because it was halfway for both couples. Food selection is ample, although not especially creative. Meat dishes a bit overcooked; fish dish was good.. Service was very good and no difficulty carrying on a conversation. Because, here's the thing: we were the only four customers from 6:30 to 8:00 on a Thursday night. Yes, food is a bit overpriced; and Harvest is inside a hotel/resort/convention facility. But something is wrong with the way this restaurant is being marketed. The food is good enough to please many more people than are showing up. It's unfortunate and one must wonder how long Harvest can survive without patrons.
