Read the reviews.The place is large and the wait staff very efficient. I ordered the Oriental Salmon and it was cooked to perfection. I was as impressed by the service and food as the reviewers stated.

I have only been to John Harvards during the "off season", and the ambience is casual, but nice. Had the best hamburger ever a few weeks ago. Pizzas are also very good. Nice beer selection. Very large portions. The wait staff is very friendly and...More
