John Harvard's Brew House Tips (8)

John Harvard's Brewhouse: Chicken Pot Pie to die for

John Harvard's is tucked in the basement of a building at 33 Dunster St. It's dark, but cozy and always crowded. Of course they make their own beer and the beer menu changes just about daily. The food is pretty good too, but stick with the comfort food like the chicken pot pie and the meatloaf. Most of the steak dishes are pretty good too.

The service tends to be a bit spotty though. Not that it takes too long to get service. For me it comes too quickly. More times than not, your dinner will come while you're still eating your appetizer which always ticks me off. In some cases we have received the appetizer and the entree at the same time! I don't know if it's management policy to get the tables to turn over more quickly or if the waitstaff simply isn't trained well enough, but it is a problem. Try ordering you appetizer then order the entree when you get your appetizer.

Favorite Dish The BEER!!!

Also, the chicken pot pie is very good!

John Harvard's Brew House: Burgers, steaks, fish and chips

John Harvard's was a fun noisy place perfect to go with your friends for a beer or with the family. They had a good selection of typical American cuisine, like burgers, fries, steaks as well as things like fish and chips and salads. Inside the atmosphere represents the founding of America, it has pictures as well as decorations that are indicative of this era. It's darker like a pub but and a bit loud, but the decor was nice and the service was good.

Favorite Dish I had a bacon burger and was definitly satisfied with my meal it was huge! I think it was about 8 or 9 dollars it came with the choice of fries, salad etc. We also got the beer tasting platter which came with 6 small glasses of different beers I would definitly suggest this, it was perfect for three of us.

John Harvard's Brew House: John Harvard's Brew House - Cambridge

I have been to a few of the John Harvard's locations, particularly Harvard Square and Manchester, CT just off I-84. I really liked the Harvard Square location with its huge dining area, friendly staff, and great food. The Manchester location seemed to be a poor imitation of the original. Both had good beer and above average food.

They have five regular beers on tap (pale ale, nut brown ale, light lager, Irish stout, and IPA), and they offer about seven seasonal beers such as Oktoberfest, Winter Ale, and Summer Blonde. Their menu contains a huge selection of appetizers, salads, burgers and sandwiches, pizzas, as well as a few steaks and seafood entrees.

I like their "Did you know" section that informed me that it takes Anheuser Busch 15 minutes to mass produce as much beer as the average brewpub crafts in an entire year!

James (John) Harvard: James (John) Harvard

Very nice and cosy restaurant-pub with their own brewery. Pretty cheap (located in student district) but very decent.

Favorite Dish Chicken pot: it's a bowl inside of which there are hot, delicious and tender chicken pieces, mushrooms, vegetables - all mixed with melt cheese like in cheese soup. And on top there's pastry with cheese cover... M-mmm...
Cambridge red beer: they brew it themselves.

John Harvard's Brewhouse.: John Harvard's Brewhouse.

This in one member of a chain of brewpubs around the northeast of the US. Though not a big fan of such operations normally, the make some great beers and have a knack for creating a English pub decor too. Certainly worth a stop if you are in Cambridge and wanting a beer. ;)

Favorite Dish The Milk Stout is quite nice and be sure to try anything they have that is cask condtioned.

John Harvard's Brew House: Great food and beer

One of my favourite places in Boston is John Harvard Brew House in Cambridge. A basement restaurant with a large menu and a microbrewery that change their beer selection often. The lunch menus consists of Tavern Tapas, burgers, sandwiches and wraps, gourmet pizzas and deserts.

They have a great selection of beer, brewed on location, and the change their selection very often.

Favorite Dish For my first lunch in Bean Town I made a brave choice - a BUFFALO CHICKEN WRAP. The battered chicken breast is fried golden and tossed in what the tavern calls "a Buffalo sauce hotter than hell." Wrapped with diced tomatoes, red onion, cheddar cheese, ranch dressing and fresh field greens it was wonderfully succulent. As you understand a great choice and it was made even better with a pint of Barder Pale Ale

John Harvard's Brew House: Medieval Atmosphere

What I like most about John Harvard's is the atmosphere. The pub has rustic wooden tables and walls, and also stained glass (such as in the photo - it's hard to see though JFK and Jerry Garcia are two of the faces).

Favorite Dish Their web site provides a menu - it's pretty much American fare. I've had mostly the sandwiches and they've been good.
