This place is a brew house and you know it from the moment you walk in and you sense the smell of the yeast which is quite strong inside. They offer a full bar with whiskeys and wines but the only beer you can purchase is their own. On the day I visited they had a nice selection of about... More

Ate here a couple of times, there beer is very good. The food is good, but not sure I would continue to go back. Nothing special.

I have been there a few times and every time I have found the food just ordinary fare. The beers are good but not outstanding. Too many other good places nearby to go to.

Been here a few times over the years and it's always a good time. Good food. Great beer. They make all the beer they serve in house so it gives it a little something extra to grab a drink here. It's my go to place when I want to just relax and have a good time

Traveling on business and stopped in based on a recommendation from my hotel. I had a guest from England with me and she loved the beer, me too. We each had a dinner size salad which was prepared with care. The curry pumpkin soup – A+

Six of us were looking for a place to get a bite to eat on a recent Friday evening. Since half of the group was from the Boston area, they recommended we try John Harvard's. Since we were on Long Island for a wedding, we weren't looking for any four-five course dinners since we knew we were going to have... More

Tried it for the first time and pleasantly surprised. We had the chicken pot pie and the grilled meatloaf and they were both excellent. Wide varieties of beer that were great and our waiter provided us with samples of a couple of them so we could get what suited us. As for the waiter.... We had Earnest and he was... More

I was a guest there for a High School Graduation Brunch and was very impressed with the food menu and and the micro-brew menu. Both had a good selection. I was very impressed with the cleanliness of the restaurant and the outside area. While we were there it was a little slow and the wait staff were kept busy cleaning... More

Beer is good and nachos are yummy. I may be a little bias but that bartender Sean sure is a cutie ;)

John Harvard's used to be my Cheers. This was 16 year ago when it first opened. We went a few times a week. Then it started to go downhill and we stopped going. After many years we heard they were under new management and decided to give it another try. We went for dinner. I had the grilled meatloaf, served... More
