“Ok food....less then ok service”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

The restaurant closes fairly early during the week. We ended up there about 30 minutes before closing...and it showed.

Everything was cleaned, plastic wraps on all condiments and we were clearly not welcomed there at this time.

The food was ok, but service and attitude was bad.....the cashier had friends in the restaurant hanging out near the cash register and they were talking in english ( we are french ) as if we could not understand them.....they wanted us to go away fast so "she" ( the cashier ) could go out fast and party with them......

First customer, last customer or any customer should have the same experience.... and it was 30 minutes before closing time...not 5 !

Did not go back and will not go back.

“One of the best fast food burgers”
Reviewed April 29, 2012

Harveys never disappoints. Grilled not fried and garnished the way you like (not like the popular burger joint) Love love love it :)

“Canada's top hamburger chain”
Reviewed September 11, 2011

Harvey's is a Canadian burger chain with locations in most Canadian provinces and cities. What makes it special? It's burgers are cooked over wood charcoal and its french fries are hand cut (or used to be).

Diners get to choose toppings at no extra cost: mustard, Ketchup, onions, hamburger relish, hot peppers etc. In recent times they have added boutique beef burgers - like the Angus. Sometimes they are co-located with Swiss Chalet chicken restaurants in smaller cities, in shopping malls and airports.

As an Canadian ex-pat, no trip to Canada is complete without a visit to Harvey's. You'll find Harvey's locations most prominently in Ontario and Quebec.

“FAST food (literally)”
Reviewed July 15, 2009

Harveys 50th birthday gift to their costumer was awesome! If you bought a burger they gave you a gift, the gift was a free original burger on your next visit. That means if you have no money, and your hungry... (gift only handed out in the month of july, 2009) head to harveys. Their burgers are pretty good, but burger kings is better. I like that you see them making your burger, and you get to pick what you want on your burger. Their burger's are not that expensive.. and the burgers are cooked fast, but well done.
