Family-owned with a warm, welcoming atmosphere, Harlequin enjoys a broad local following. My evening was most enjoyable thanks to good service. My jumbo shrimp cocktail was tasty, but misleadingly named. I really was surprised that it was my appetizer when I saw these six small shrimp arriving. My side salad was OK, but nothing to look forward to. My filet,... More

The Harlequin is a local treasure. The steak and baked potato dinner is super. When you add the amazing salad with the house bleu cheese dressing, it is even better. The kibbee appetizer is also wonderful !

While in town visiting my father he took me here. Said it was one of his favorite places. The service was great, the food was great. A little pricey but worth it.

I've always heard about the harlequin for steaks so finally we decided to give them a try. Early on Saturday evening we arrived and were warmly greeted by the host and promptly seated . Our waiter was prompt and polite. We started with the baked stuffed mushrooms , they were perfect. Then came the salads. It amazes me how a... More

How special to be at this restaurant for Mother's Day. The atmosphere is so warm and unique and the food superior to none.

Ten of us, age 19 to 72 ate there. Some ate the rib-eye and thought it to be good. One ordered a pork chop. I was probably an inch and a half thick. He ate two bites and didn't like it. He didn't say why. His wife tried it. She didn't like it. When I asked why she made a... More

I ate at the bar with a co worker on a business trip. Great service and the steak was very good too. Might not be the very best steak I've ever had but I would not complain and will be back when I'm in town again.

Good food, I had the crab cake and shrimp. The portion sizes seemed small to us. The server was very attentive ! The wine was perfect!

I'm a steak girl , like Vic and Anthony's steak and this place was mediocre, I could have made the salad better at home. My food wasn't hot, the waiter took the steak back and put in on the grill telling me that it would take too long to cook another. Wow... So I had to try and eat an... More
