Great spot for brekky / brunch. First class service - staff friendly & very good. Quick service with a smile. Food very good. Had a banana smoothie & eggs with bacon. Not the cheapest restaurant out there - but a great spot for a treat & would be great spot to catch up with friends. Can eat inside or outside... More

I always look for a venue that serves creative breakfast dishes in addition to the old favourites and Harvey's didn't disappoint. Try the Potato and Feta Rosti with Creamed Corn, Salsa and Poached Egg - delicious. Parking can be tricky though there is a parking station just a short walk away should you not be able to find a street... More

There was a nice buzz in the resturant when we arrived. We found service was great and the food was simply amazing. We would definately go there again. Great value for money.

Harvey's was accommodating of our group of 10, and were quick and efficient with service and food preparation. The food itself was very bland, we had an assortment of meals and each were small and very over priced for what you got. For a 'James St' brekky it was very disappointing.

Another Brissy institution and always delivers. The grass fed eye fillet is a highlight, one of Brisbane's best steaks. Well done folks!
