Decent place to sit down for a drink as they have a good happy hour. Staff was reasonable friendly but are somewhat reserved, not outgoing. Sandwiches were good and prime rib was very thick however Cesar salad turned out to be a house salad.

Harp & Dragon is a friendly, cut epub I'd be glad to frequent. I came here for dinner and drinks after hearing about it from friend who lived in the town, and I'm glad I did. They have a pretty good beer selection and their food menu was also unique. Nt every pub you visit has good drinks AND food,... More

Lots of teachers and area workers frequent the place during happy hour. A fun little hometown bar. Food is very good also. Can get very crowded but after happy hour place seems to empty out.

Food is good, small menu for a Irish bar. Waitresses make u wait too long. (Some of them) Price too high for a small portion. Others Irish bars serve you more for the same price. Sometimes they over cook the fries. Beside that it's good eviroment.

Ray & I ,with another friend went to H&D for lunch today for the first time. I walked into the dining area and looked for a booth...there was only one - which was occupied by a single guy on a laptop. They had these high tables with wooden stools. ( Not senior friendly). So, we ended up near the entrance... More

The atmosphere is the real selling point for the Harp & Dragon. The restaurant has some interesting architectural details and I really like the bar with lots good beers on tap. The food is average pub fare with no special twists or flare. It is a great place to meet your friends and family in a relaxed setting that beats... More

We had a great time at this establishment and the food was some of the best we ever had. My wife got a cup of the New England Clam Chowder and I got the bowl-lucky me because mine came with a tasty fritter right in the middle of the bowl. The soup was outstanding, I will definitely come back just... More

Took forever to get wait staff, food took a long time to get to the table, was luke warm at best, and not very good. I mean, how can you screw up corned beef and cabbage?

Stopped in here for what we hoped would be a quick lunch Sunday afternoon. Items on the menu were not available ( turkey for the turkey cranberry sandwich.) .Food took forever to come, and was ok at best. The server recommended the potto salad side, but it wad awful. Tasted more of vinegar than potato. Portions were scanty, although prices... More
