This was our first time back since the pandemic (once a year lunch stop since 2008) and it was as great as we remember it to be. Service, food, beer, and seating were all fantastic.

Everyone was friendly and helpful, we initially reserved outdoor table but changed our mind. Staff easily moved us with no issue and we had the best waitress . Upbeat and helped with draft selections .

The server was lovely and knowledgeable. The menus all had different things crossed out on them making it hard to tell what was available. The portions were generous but the food was nothing out of the ordinary.

Limited menu but quality food. Loved the outdoor dining option, and all four beers in my flight were excellent. We were not rushed through the meal, which was much appreciated. I wish the gift shop was better stocked. Some of the most popular sizes/designs were unavailable.

Great food, They were flexible at moving our two parties together which was really fun and helpful! It was trivia night, which was fun! One group did great and was competitive while our other group was just going it for fun (don't know random trivia) but we were welcomed just the same and had fun too!

It was our 3rd visit to Harpoon. I had the fish and chips , very good. I love the Boston Irish Stout. My husband had the pulled pork and corn bread that came in a parfait glass because they were out of the brisket. He was not impressed. The service and our waitress were very good.

Had two reservations, one for five people the other for four people. Which means, we had two tables reserved. We asked if we could sit together and they said no problem but we would have to be out in an hour and a half. We would try our best but that ultimately would be up to the server. If we had two tables reserved, it was a bit confusing on why they couldn’t push the two tables near eachother together (literally behind us), then rearrange the reservations coming in after to different tables. But ok, that’s fine. We were constantly reminded throughout your meal that we need to be out at 4:15. Ultimately, that cut our bill which could’ve been $400+ down to $156 because we only had the chance to order apps.

Apps were fine. Only suggestion would be to layer the nachos.

They were out of my favorite fish sandwich. When we ordered we were clear we wanted the salad first then the meal. Also our table was too small for more. The food came out right after the salad and the hostess put the food on the next table and said she’d have to move us. Then came back again and said we had 5 mins to eat our salad because someone was coming to that table our food was on. Finally our server came over and grabbed the food, returning it to the heat lamps until we finished our salad.

Had the fish and chips. Fish was fried just right. One large piece with chips. Beer was just what I excepted had the hazy IPA which was tasty and smooth, a great summer beer. My wife enjoyed the Camp Wannamango. We will be back.

Is been great but very disappointed at the fact that we had lunch Sunday June 27th and we were told that there was no summer menus yet? (1st week of summer???) all I wanted was pizza! Last time I check pizza and beer goes together

We were disappointed that the hostess would not seat us outside even though there were a minimum of 3 open tables available outside in the deck are for the entirety of our meal inside - this does not include the numerous picnic tables on the lawn that were available. In addition, we had a toddler with us and the servers said that there was no orange juice or milk available for him even though Harpoon was serving mimosas and french toast... both of which require Oj and milk respectively. We hope that Harpoon returns to the friendly environment we know it to be.

Although the brewery was 'slammed' with customers on a beautiful Saturday, we were seated immediately for our 2:00 reservation. Beer was delicious, and our server suggested a taste of a new beer which my husband loved! Food arrive hot and scrumptious. The menu is a wide variety of pub style food . Harpoon Brewery does not disappoint!

We love the beer at Harpoon and the atmosphere is lovely. My husband and our guest both have severe hearing loss, so it was hard for them to hear our conversation, but the service was very attentive, the beer was delicious and the food was very good. There's not a lot you can do about noise when there are people enjoying themselves.

We love Harpoon; it is a fun scene, particularly outside when the weather is warm, and the food and beer are outstanding. The maple sriracha wings are fantastic and the fried chicken sandwich is a mainstay of the menu.

I marked down the service to "good" for this visit. The waitress was very pleasant and attentive, so that wasn't the issue. The problem was course timing; the appetizer and mains all came out at once, which is problematic with hot food. Not a catastrophe, but still annoying when you're trying to have a relaxed dinner and a few beers.

Nothing comparable on Thursday evenings around here when singer/songwriter Jason Cann performs with other musicians. Many in audience dance.

Solid core staff appreciates customers, waitstaff friendly and efficient.

Great place to gather with friends!
