    John Harvards is a local restaurant that I wanted to try out for a while. I ordered the Shepherd's Pie which tasted alright but the quantity was too small for the price. The rest of my party ordered other items from the menu which looked really good like the burgers and artichoke dip. However, what really sold it for me (and the main reason I came) was for the craft beer. I tried the pumpkin spice beer during the happy hour and it was the greatest thing in the world. Definitely one of the best if not the best beer I have ever tried and well worth the price at $4 per pint. It even had a cinnamon sugar rim around the top and went down very smooth. I will definitely be returning to try their other selection of beers.

    Love this place for a game and a bite. Pumpkin ale is a must and their warm pretzels with dipping cheese make anything enjoyable. Lots of flat screens to catch you fav sporting evet and more than enough seating in the bar or the restaurant.

    John Harvard's is close to my home so we are able to come often. So happy they honor the open table reservation. The sauce they put on the calamari is very good and should be used in other dishes.

    This place was empty at 830 on a Saturday night. We met some friends for a few beers. Very surprised to see only a handful of people in the dining room.

    This was not our first time here. The food, drinks and service are fabulous. We usually go with an appetizer that may be shared. This time we took nachos. Enough for at least 5-6 people. Some took burgers. They are ALWAYS cooked the way you want. One took a veggie burger, which she said was great. Our sides were either a salad or cole slaw or fries. All of them were super. The cole slaw was not drowning in mayonnaise. Perfect. Just wish they would add sweet potato fries to the menu. They would probably be outstanding also.

    John Harvard's was nothing short of accomodating, friendly and helpful. With a group if 12, it is hard to please everyone but the staff achieved the impossible!!! Great job and thanks for a great night!!
