Something a little different from the ordinary!

In the land of chain restaurants I love eating at American Harvest. Hand crafted, locally produced food. Looks wonderful ~ tastes great!

This restaurant is impressed with itself. Menu is interesting but limited but the wine, beer & spirits list is extensive. It is more of a bar that serves snobby overpriced food. They use as many local products as possible, which I applaud. For appetizers we shared the dates (which should be under desserts) and the potatoes & cabbage. Both were... More

I visited here in January 2015 after reading positive reviews on TripAdvisor and their menu. First of all - yes, it is in a strip mall. But don't let that keep you away. It's a little confusing to find, due to the strip mall location but definitely worth the effort. My server was knowledgeable about the menu and the menu... More

My husband and I frequent this restaurant 2-3 times a month. We especially enjoy their Sunday brunch, it is the best in town. However, the service here leaves much to be desired. I cannot tell if it is because there are too few servers, a less than clear division of duties or lack of process organization. From what we call... More

When we made our reservation we told the restaurant that one of our guests was on crutches. We were seated at a table the furthest from the rest room and the maitre d would do nothing about it. What a jerk.

Stopped in for dinner the week after Thanksgiving and a good 30-40 were enjoying their Christmas party along with what looked like a full restaurant. As we had no reservation we thought we were out of luck to dine. 5 minutes after walking in we were at our table and 15 minutes later we'd ordered and were enjoying drinks. Service... More

A nice change if pace from much of what we'd gotten elsewhere while visiting Springfield, but needs a little more polish to be worth a return. Kitchen needs more consistency and drinks list needs new ideas.

We made reservations well in advance and were seated immediately. Our waiter was super nice, extremely helpful and always responded to our thank yous with your welcome which is becoming very rare. The food is spectacular i ordered things i normally would not eat but had to try it their way and was pleasantly surprised! My wife has a gluten... More

Jordan and Aurora, you never fail to impress my palate! My husband and I dropped in for a quick bite before heading out of town. We sat at the bar, as we usually do, and found ourselves welcomed by Andrew, who took fantastic care of us. During this visit we had the homemade pork rinds, which my husband LOVED, general... More

Having had a heart attack several months ago I am on a low sodium diet and we have to be very picky about where we eat out. American Harvest came to mind because we had not been there and it is very similar to my other favorite restaurant in town. At 6:00 p.m. on a Saturday night we walked right... More
