Harvest Moon was the perfect place to see Rutger's basketball in March Madness. The food delicious, all safety precautions in place, our server so attentive and nice.

Service was very slow. Wait staff was not personable at all, seemed like they wanted to be anywhere else but there. Food was mediocre at best. Country music was playing through the speakers on St. Patrick’s Day, no ambiance at all. Just over all disappointing.

Great Brussel Sprout app, mediocre burger....no flavor and dry.... if you are a brew pub and can't do a better burger then you have a problem

For a nice Sunday evening meal the Harvest Moon delivered a great experience. The crowds seem to avoid Sunday night so it was not crowded. The staff were very attentive and the food was good.

Food was good. The waiter was kind. One of our guest ordered the chicken and waffles and received potatoes as the waffle. Not sure if this is the intended entree, but wouldn't have ordered that if known it would be potatoes and not actual waffles. Was not told there would be a substitute. All other entrees were enjoyed.

The service was extremely attentive and the food was delicious. Crispy brussels sprouts are our favorite. And the scarlet IPA beer was yummy! Thank you for a great experience!

I absolutely loved my time there. We were there for Valentine’s Day eve and had a delicious dinner. We also ordered a flight of beer and loved the offerings. Our server was great and we were seated far away from people. Will definitely be going back.

Wouldn’t go here for the food but if you’re looking for a place to stop by for a drink then this place isn’t bad. Service wasn’t great especially since it wasn’t that busy. Overall not a great experience and I wouldn’t go back again

Inside and outside dining. We still aren't comfortable eating inside so took advantage of the outside tent. Enjoyed a lovely meal and were warm (also dressed warm too).

Hadn't been there in years but food was still good and selections were decent though a little sparse at least for lunch. There was a private party upstairs so we opted for bar area. A bit cold in the winter in that area but otherwise enjoyed and will go back again.

First time here and we enjoyed everything. The Irish potatoes were a very yummy appetizer and our entrees were delicious. We ordered the pork chop and the Pad Thai with shrimp and would highly recommend both. Will definitely dine here again.

This is a fine place. Good food, good service, and good atmosphere. We went for Sunday brunch and we were thankfully that the noise level was quiet. Although there were plenty of people, the noise wasn't too loud for conversations.

Food was very good and service was excellent.
Only disappointment was that they were not seating anyone upstairs due to a private party, downstairs was quite loud, and there were not many spaces for party of four. I wish they had informed me that upstairs was not available as I would have visited at another time. Our occasion called for a quieter more comfortable setting.
