saturday night..dinner for two, middle aged couple. got some drinks which were a good value with a wide selection. Got a fish sandwich dinner and guest had a reubon, fries came with both. My fries were good but could have had a bit of extra...crisp. Fish sandwich was good but i think they bun could have been wider to better hold out to the sandiwch. The bun was kinda long and narrow. The cocktail sauce was legit with a nice kick and the tartar was incredible. Like so good we got more for the fries, the reubun..like seriously EVERYTHING. my guest liked her reubon ad shes a tough critic on food. Vibe was good Service was freindly, could have been a bit more attetnive but times are tough. We ate inside but the outside patio looks like a great spot once open. Would go back for sure.More

Definitely recommend the Harmony Inn! We had reservations for 4 @ 7 pm on Saturday, they were very busy, but we were seated promptly. The hostess was friendly and courteous. The food was absolutely delicious! And our waitress was one of THE BEST servers we...have ever had! KUDOS to Michelle!!! She was friendly and efficient. She has an OUTSTANDING personality! It was such a Joy to have her wait on us. She loves her job and it is reflected in the service she gave. We started off with the soft pretzels and the potato pancakes for appetizers. More than enough for 4 people to share! Very good. I should have asked for more of the apple chutney to go with the pancakes, but we used some of the cheese and the mustard from the pretzels, which was also very delicious! My husband had the steak spaetzle, it was done to perfection. and delectable! Two of us had the Chef's special, a pan-seared Parmesan-crusted Walleye... and it was ABSOLUTELY EXQUISITE! Perfectly seared and seasoned. We applaud you, Chef, for the excellence of your dish! All-in-all, it was a wonderful evening out for the four of us. We will definitely return and we HIGHLY recommend others to patronize!More

This place was utterly chaotic and understaffed with very poor service and mediocre food. We arrived on a beautiful afternoon. There were a lot of empty tables for two and one or two tables for four. I had to search for the hostess who was...all the in the back and not near the posted sign. She told me there was an hour wait. I gave my number and was told I’d be texted when the table for four we needed would be ready. 75 minutes later I was texted and we were seated at one of the tables for four that had been empty since we arrived. I don’t understand why we could not be seated or why that didn’t join two tables for two to accommodate us. In the meantime, while we were waiting, I tried to get beer for our group. The woman behind the bar outside looked at me a number of times and never bothered to ask what I wanted. When she left and was replaced by a colleague, I was able to place my order —. It just took 20 minutes to be served. Eventually we were seated. It took a while to even have our orders taken. Our waitress clearly was out of sorts and put two items on our bill that we didn’t order. I gave her a 20% tip because I felt sorry for her. Management here is arrogant and I felt she did the best she could under the circumstances. I likely will not return. This is either a one or a Two star experienceMore

We stopped to eat here on our way to Pittsburgh and it was well worth it. The food was fabulous. I got a steak with asparagus and mash potatoes. It came with homemade herb butter that was fantastic. My wife’s steak salad was very good...too. The service was friendly and prompt. I would definitely eat here again.More

Management and staff needs some serious work. We went on a Sunday afternoon to sit outside and listen to the live acoustic music. Atmosphere is always nice and music was fantastic. If you are sitting at the bar to order drinks, maybe not so bad...but table service is just horrible. Some of the servers are at least nice and apologetic about the horrible service while others just are down right rude. I completely understand that restaurants are short staffed but when we ask for water literally 5 times over a 35min period and get nothing, it's bad. Service has been bad there for years so this is nothing new but it's become almost unbearable to the point where we will stop going and find other places with live music on a Sunday afternoon. Too bad because Harmony Inn is such a charming place but has been ruined by what appears to be poor management and inexperienced staff. I honestly do not typically take the time to write a bad review but something has to change here.More

Went there on busy Saturday for dinner, wait time was about 40min. They have great beers on tap and so the wait wasn’t too bad! Attentive service brought us the bratwurst and Ruben we ordered. Both came with fries not very crispy. The mustard sauce...with the bratwurst was too strong. The Ruben was ok. Very good service and beers, average food left us with not too good overall experience. However we didn’t have to pay for the bratwurst as we weren’t happy with the taste! The patio is really nice and maybe on not so busy time the visit would have been resulted in better experienceMore

This used to be our favorite place. Now potato pancakes taste and look like frozen hash browns with an outrageous price increase. Our favorite chicken spaetzle used to come with a side now that only comes with a price increase... not to mention the taste...was just so so. Some warned us of the changes and we had to see for ourselves. So disappointing, have to find a new favorite placeMore

Used to be a family favorite but thier new menu, that removes all the German staples, is just pretty average and really overpriced. Harmony Inn isn't the only show in town anymore with other breweries popping up. They need to fix their menu and take...a hard look at their pricing before I would want to visit. There is nothing on their menu that you couldn't get at a sports bar.More

They now have very little German food. At 5:00 on a Sunday, they were out of all pork items and about 70% of other menu items. Blame COVID if you want, but how can you not have potato pancakes? The food we ordered was very...poor. The prices are high -- $100 for 4, and 3 of the 4 had a sandwich. Service was fair. It is a shame, it used to be a very good restaurant.More

Fantastic food and atmosphere. An added bonus was meeting the chef in person who took to sit with us and tell stories. Our server had an excellent attitude and a lot of patience with a hard to handle crowd of 6. We will definitely come...back for more food and great time.More

Haven't been here in 2 years. They just opened back up and changed the menu. Not the same stuff. Hopefully the menu comes back. Service was not the fastest but we were not in a hurry. We will most likely never be back to this...part of the country so we won't be back here. Shame we love this place.More

Everything was very enjoyable. The service quick and efficient. Our dinner did not come with sides so we opted for an app of potato pancakes, which were wonderful. We both had spaetzle and it was delightful. German chocolate cake was good but not necessarily over...the top great.More

Small plate with only 6 small shrimp was $30 and small plate with small chicken breast was $20 and neither included a side. Dinner food was ok, nothing special considering the high price. Get a sandwich or burger for a better value.

Cool place. It’s supposedly haunted. Nice outdoor patio with fire for spring, summer or warm fall nights. Lots of events at the bar area. Can get a growler filled for about $25. We had the hot honey garlic chicken wrap & the beef brisket grilled...cheese. Omg that chicken wrap was amaze balls! My son got ice cream & we got the PB pie. I had gotten the turkey pot pie on a previous visit which was superb. Parking is very limited so find a spot early. Cool little town. Wish they’d make a room or 2 into bed & breakfast type rooms.More

From the moment we walked to the door until we left we encountered friendly employees. Our server, I wish I could remember his name, was great. We started with the pretzel appetizer and was very good. There were four of us and we each had...something different, everyone thought the food was great. Potato pancakes were wonderful. We topped it off with apple dumplings, blueberry strudel, and the chocolate brownie, all wonderful. The Harmony Inn was clean, well maintained and had a lot of charm. I would advise making a reservation, we were there at 4:15 and the already had a crowd.More
