Food was great. Inside was a bit noisy for what we wanted.... but understand it is more a pub/bar. However the server got us a seat outside and that was fabulous. I would go back

We decided to pick Harvey's because they had GF bread! I was recently diagnosed with Celiac disease and I was afraid a reuben was out of the question but i was wrong :) my BF said his meal was delicious and his only complaint was the drinks were small.

Went to Harvey’s for dinner with family on New Years Eve & wasn’t sure what to expect. Was pleasantly surprised, great festive atmosphere, service and food!

Pork belly tacos were not the best...steak tacos however were very good. Waiter was just ok....bartender Matt upstairs was very nice and served up excellent drinks.

I've been to Harvey's a few times now. Always enjoyed the ambiance - fun but not too loud to be able to talk with your dinner companions. It is a pub and I would suggest sticking to Pub fare when ordering. I have had the meatloaf and fish and chips in the past and they were outstanding. This time two of us tried the steak with shrimp and both were not good. the strip steaks were exceedingly fatty yet overcooked and dry (as was the shrimp) - we simply didn't eat them. The salad and mashed potatoes were delicious and other companions stuck to the Irish Pub fare and were very pleased.


That being said - I would definitely go again and refer it out to friends. It's got a great ambiance and rally nice staff. Good Location as well.

Food was good and staff super friendly. I made a reservation and was seated like a foot from the bar which was a little disappointing cause it was a date.

This was our second time at Harvey's and both time we ate on the roof top which is very nice. Our first trip got 5 stars, all of us loving our meals. However this time the service was extremely slow. We are never really in a hurry so if we noticed it that's not good. Additionally one person had salmon which was very dry, and I had a steak & fries dish that was not hot when it came out and was cooked a little more than I wanted it. One drink had to be returned as it was mixed with water & not tonic. In the defense of our server, she was pleasant & they have a couple of flights of stairs to climb to get to the roof top. We didn't complain about any of this, and still gave a very good tip. No thank you was given. I said I'd recommend hoping we just hit a bad night at Harveys!

Our waitress was very nice and the service was good but the food was very mediocre. The wings were just okay, as was the burger and the salads. My son had the salmon which he liked but the veggies that came with it were overcooked and not very good. The mashed potatoes that I got with my burger were not very good either and it's kinda hard to mess up mashed potatoes. Overall disappointing meal.

Reserved a table for 8 - staff was very amenable/attentive/accommodating & super friendly. The menu was interesting - food was delicious. We were a mixed group of adults and kids age 9-20 - all were well satisfied and pleased with the meal/experience.

I was very disppointed in the quality of my meal. Also, service was just ok. I ordered a drink and never received it. Atmosphere was ok. More of a bar instead of a restaurant.

The only problem with this restaurant was we had a high top table, chairs with no backs and too close to other tables. This after making a reservation 2 weeks in advance? Staff was accommodating and gave us different chairs. 10 min later a couple walked in and got a better table.

We were trying someplace new in Saratoga and decided to go for some good pub fare. We could not have made a better decision for our Sunday night. Turns out Sundays and Mondays are wing nights and wings are a dollar a piece. My God, if you are what you eat then I am a giant garlic Parmesan chicken wing. They were the best wings I’ve ever had in my life. They were smoked, crispy, and so flavorful. The garlic parm sauce was just the right combination of cheese, garlic, butter, and salt. Coupled this with their beer selection it was one of the best meals we have had in weeks.
Aside from the food and drafts, we also had some craft cocktails per the suggestion of the bartender that night. Crafted with elegance and flair (they lit an orange peal to make a flame when they served it) everything was made perfectly. To make this the best spot they also had a DART BOARD. Amazing date night. It will be a new regular spot for us.

A little disappointed that they had taken Bangers and Mash off the menu. But the Shepherd's Pie was great. This is a moderately-priced restaurant with good, quality food and service.

Made reservation ahead of time. We are elderly. Would not give us table with comfortable seats. Had to have high ones yet others were empty. Steak ordered medium rare. It arrived almost well done. Very very noisy. Waitress was very good.

My boyfriend and I have date night once in awhile, and I looked up best restaurants in Saratoga & Harvey’s was one of them!!! First time coming here, the place was awesome, the building is beautiful inside & out. I wished we’re on the outside paddock but sitting inside was great. The food was absolutely amazing, my boyfriend & I will definitely come back!

Horrible. No, and I mean no service for the entire World Cup game... 2 hours. No table put aside for my reservation and they allowed anyone to just take tables. Will never go back!

We made reservations for 1130AM Sunday, along with multiple other people using open table and when we arrived it wasn't even opened. We called 3x finally someone answered. We walked in and the waitress was just annoyed or something; it made us feel uncomfortable so we left.

Our order didn't go through. When it finally came my extra crispy wings were barely cooked through and my sons meatloaf was disgusting . People who ordered after us came and went before we ever received our food. Certainly no Irish Times. I will not be going back.

We were looking for somewhere downtown for a light dinner and Harvey's was perfect. Good service, good food, and reasonable prices. All the waitstaff were friendly and professional, plus we got a free margarita sample - pineapple jalapeno. (Try it, you'll be pleasantly surprised!)
We also want to complement Harvey's for their staff who found the hat that we left behind, but only realized it when we were 2 hours away. A call to the restaurant resulted in their finding it and insisting on mailing it to us, much appreciated.
We will certainly visit Harvey's again when we come back to Saratoga Springs.

Every time we venture to Saratoga Springs, we go to Harvey's!! The hot wings are to die for and the blue cheese dressing is definitely a real treat! Every time we've had a meal at Harvey's, the wait staff is excellent, the food is excellent and we always have a great time!

It was sad. Clearly frozen food, dirty kitchen, rude service. Hot plates like they either came out of a microwave or were sitting under a lamp for several minutes. Would not reccomend. Good bar.

We didn't have a great experience. This place is good if you're looking to watch a major sports game. Otherwise, you'll be disappointed both by the service and ambiance. The wings were excellent and flavorful, but my $15 mac&cheese was very bland as were the chicken tacos. I very rarely leave an unfavorable review for a restaurant, but we were hopeful for a special NYE experience and were completely underwhelmed.
