You can graduate from Harvard before you get your food. Our waitress was nice enough but service was slow. It was not busy. This was my second time here and both times it was slow. The place is really cool, decorated with antiques and it is a perfect location with the slopes in sight and the food is good. It... More

Great food, good for families and adults alike. Had three young kids, and they walked away happy and full. Highly recommended.

While at Jiminy Peak I will treat my son and I to a meal at John Harvard's We like it as it's usually not as busy as all the other areas Jiminy offers for food.. We had great service and the burger we both got was awesome.

Stick to the basics and you'll be happy...burgers and sandwiches are good. They have beer on tap from their brewery so you get some unique flavors. I wish they had a few more TV's at the bar.

This place has no charm or atmosphere. Nothing about it says Apres Ski. The food is ok. I found it to be the same quality as the cafeteria style lunches on the Jiminy mountain, which I enjoy. Considering this the "best restaurant" at Jiminy, I expected a lot more. Service is horrific. Spent ten minutes trying to get anyone's attention... More

Tried to call on a Sunday evening to see what time the kitchen closed. Got a recording simply saying the dining room opened at 5 pm 7days a week. Arrived at 8:40 and was ignored for a bit. Waitress passing by kept looking at her watch was clearly annoyed by our arrival. When asked she said kitchen closes at 9.... More

I ate here with my family of 4 and none of us were overly impressed. The prices are extremely high for the quality of food presented. I would not rush to go back next time we are at the mountain.

Our entire group of 12 ate here on our second night at Jiminy Peak. the location was great. Just a short walk from Wyndham Bentley Brook resort where we were staying. They have an extensive menu from a burger to a full dinner. Prices were reasonable and the food was good for a ski resort.

We went to John Harvard's with a party of 9. We waited for 1 hour to sit down even though there were tables large enough open. The bartender was more focused on talking to her friends that making drinks. The service was lacking, the food arrived cold, asked to speak to the manager, she blamed a salad order with one... More
