Good food, very slow service

We eat here a couple of times per year, and really like it. It is busy but not packed, even on a Saturday night. It's a nice atmosphere, too, very casual.

I have been several times to Boston Beanery but this most recent visit left a poor taste in my mouth. It started from the time we walked in the restaurant. No one greeted us, bartender took forever to get us drinks, & dinner service was mediocre at best. Unfortunate because the food was good.

Not what it used to be. Used to have a lot of regulars come here and now not so much. It used to get crowded and now it rarely is. That is telling. Perhaps that is why its ranking here is decreasing.

Restaurant in a good location. Menu was typical run of the mill American Bistro. Was very loud while we were there. Service was just OK. Food was good.

Stopped on the recommendation of the Sleep Inn fellow. I asked for a locally owned (non-chain) place to grab eats before checking in. Easy to get to from 81. They offer local beer. We are at the bar and the staff was helpful and friendly (on a Wednesday night). Dan enjoyed his sugar glazed salmon, mac n' cheese with broccoli.... More

Quite a nice selection of beers at reasonable prices. Tried the lobster bisque which was tasty. It was sans the lobster, will have to wait for Boston for that. Cute strip mall establishment with friendly staff and neighborhood beer drinkers.

I had a great meal at the Boston Beanery- nothing fancy, just really good food. I used to go there in my college years and it hasn't changed a bit.

Great place to hang out in evening. Suits the budget and great service. Very near to the suites located in Harrisonburg.

My husband and I came upon the Boston Beanery by accident, while looking for something else. The pepperoni pizza was yummy and so was their chicken salad. Nice atmosphere, good food, & service. (Emma was a great server!!)

My husband and I had been driving all day and wanted a good dinner we could eat in our hotel room. We ordered from the nearby Boston Beanery. My husband picked up the food within 20 minutes. It was hot, fresh and very good. I would highly recommend.
