The food is just okay here - nothing to write home about but okay for an evening out with friends. However, you had better be prepared for a LONG evening out and not have anything to do after - the service here always takes forever. It doesn't matter how many people you have (2 or 10) or how complex your order, plan to wait about twice as long as you would anywhere else. At least. We're tired of waiting, and likely won't be going back.

We have been to the Harp many times. Both our lunches with friends or dinner as a couple have been an enjoyable experience. The Reuben is great and we love the pita crab melt.

Three of us visited for the first time. Service was slow and inconsistent. We had to ask for things 2 or 3 times. Ketchup was served for chili sauce. Later learned they did not have chili sauce. Service was awfully slow. Salad was served with no dressing. Had to request it. Baked potato was hard and served with 2 pats of butter. Had to request bread and it came with 1 pat of butter. We were very disappointed especially with the advertisement in the Sunpaper. We thought we had hit upon something special. Manager made some adjustment to our bill. His remarks were awkward like "I see you ate all the food." The problem was getting the food in a timely manner and correct.

Our family enjoyed a casual dinner at the Harp after a day of activities. The food was good. The service was great. Our needs were met without being intrusive.
