This was our first time to go out to dinner since the COVOID out break. We were very happy with our experience and felt very safe with the precaution they have in place!

Overall entrees were quite good (veal chop and scallops). Cold bar seafood was not great-shrimp and mussels were overcooked. Good wine list but a bit over priced.

Everyone who worked there was very kind, so that was not an issue. We waited 20 minutes for a table (granted it was Valentine’s Day) but then proceeded to wait an hour for our entree. Luckily it came with the cold bar so we had little picky things to hold us over. Once our steaks came, I was incredibly disappointed at the taste. It was so blah, no flavor whatsoever. Boyfriend and I decided to take them home to season ourselves after a few bites. Not sure I would come back here considering I was underwhelmed with a $75 meal.

The food selection was excellent but I like my food hot and the eggplant parmesan was lukewarm and my pasta was the same way.I took the psta back and the cook put it back in the pan to try to heat it. Disappointing!

We went to visit our daughter and her husband near Johnstown PA. I chose this restaurant because of it's location. When we got there, we were happy to see that there was plenty of free parking available, even though it's located in the Holiday Inn in downtown Johnstown. We had made a note on our OpenTable reservation that my daughter has a physical handicap and we wished to have a secluded table where she would feel more comfortable. They seated us in a very cozy corner, next to the windows where we had a lovely view of the city. The menu was pricier than I expected, but everything we ordered was served hot and delicious. Each of us enjoyed our various entrees. Our server, Chloe, could not have been nicer. She went above and beyond for us, and made our meal extremely pleasant and comfortable. We would definitely dine in Harrigan's the next time we're in Johnstown.

Killer food and very attentive service. Great drink and wine selection. Definitely pricey for the area but the food is worth it. Great seasonal specials and the scallops were amazing! If this restaurant was not in Johnstown it would be packed every night. Hopefully this town gets it together so this place will thrive for years to come

The wine was escepcial! My family and I enjoyed a quiet lunch, and although we wished we ordered from the mouth watering dinner menu, the food was light which allowed us to enjoy the wine! Will be back to have one of those funnel cakes!

Great Mother’s Day spread. Higher quality food than what we expected for a brunch buffet. A little noisy and desserts seemed a little mass produced, but overall food quality was great! Service was even better!!

Holiday buffets at Harrigan's are always special. We especially enjoy the amazing appetizer selection and this year the lamb from the carving station was one of our favorite entrees. Thank you to the chef for another delicious meal.

Perfect location for Easter Sunday lunch. We are extremely busy and unfortunately often do not have time to prepare holiday dinners. With most of our family out of town this year we were looking for a Holiday meal together for just my husband and me. Everything was excellent. The food variety and quality were outstanding as well as the service. I also appreciated the special touches with the Easter decor. We will absolutely keep Harrigan's in mind for future dining.

Although we moved back to the Johnstown area 9 years ago , we rarely dined at Harrigans . After a friends recommendation we made reservations on line for our anniversary. I was pleasantly surprised when the manager called the night before to ask me if i wanted anything special from him and his staff in honor of our anniversary . That was a special touch that I never received from any restaurant that I had dined at. The service , ambience , food and the personal attention from the staff made for a pleasant dinning experience and wonderful celebration of our 56th anniversary . Summing up , we've dined in some of the better restaurants in the metropolitan NY / NJ area and Harrigans meets there standards .

Service was atrocious and finally when I asked for the check the waitress asked if I can take the check and pay upfront because she was too busy and when I talked to the so called manager he didn’t see any wrong doing is asking customers to take their checks and pay upfront in a supposedly upscale restaurant.
Manager and crew worthy of Burger King or Wendy’s

Food was great. service could have been a little better, had to wait longer than expected to get refills on drinks. Took about 45 minutes to get our food but that was not a problem, we were enjoying the great piano music. I would def. recommend this restaurant.

Pleasantly surprised with a complimentary bottle of champagne for our 50th anniversary dinner. Seated at a table for two that was nicely set especially for the occasion and located away from the main crowd. Waitress was friendly, did a very nice job of handling everything, and was available when needed. Only issue was that my wife's Filet Mignon was about 3/8 inch thick and overcooked and they did not have the Chile Remoulade available that was described on the menu to top the Filet. Otherwise, a nice evening.

I’ve already wrote a review about how bad the service was. Our server didn’t Introduce herself. She’s bad language at the table and two children were present. We had to ask her for our drinks and ask for refills that we did not get in till after our meal. She bumped into my chair twice and left my coat on the floor. We were told that we got rolls with our meal but after asking her twice we finally got them after we finished our meal. We were told mix vegetables carrots And asparagus will be served but we never got the asparagus. I thought that a restaurant locked out dated and old. However it was clean the food was just mediocre

Although good we probably won’t go back. The hostess was absolutely awful. She was not welcoming whatsoever and told us to “stand over there” because our table wasn’t ready, although we were 5 mins early for reservations we had made. I went and complained about her attitude to the front desk and they were apologetic and even though they took my name and number for the food and beverage manager to contact me here it is 4 days later and nobody has even bothered to call to discuss the matter. I guess they have enough business that they can spare to loose 5-6 people at one table for brunch. On the plus side the food, server and music was awesome. I just don’t know why businesses/people think they can treat you however they like and you will just automatically come back. My husband and I work extremely hard for our paychecks and it would be nice to be at least have a hostess say “good morning...welcome to Harrigans” with a smile...maybe it’s me.

We’ve been to Harrigans before, enjoyed it before, and came back. The food was very good. It’s not your typical hotel restaurant. The menu reflects creativity. The preparation is excellent. The quality is excellent. This time they had a piano player during dinner. She was perfect and enhanced the experience. Two downs: our waiter moved way to slow but fortunately we were not in a hurry; and, Johnston continues its unfortunate descent to irrelevance.
