I go to this place regularly. While the food is ok, it's pretty standard fare, the beer is very good. They have a nice variety of craft beer on tap (brewed on-site). Good place to watch a game too.

Decorative bar with steel brew barrels. Good selection of craft beers. Decent prices. Good portions. Bar, high tops, tables and booths. Good for solo, friends, and family.

I ate dinner at John Harvard's with two business colleagues whilst visiting Framingham. This American Brew Pub / Sports Bar is quite large with a typical American Bar ambiance. The large brewing vats dominate the area behind the bar. The menu as well is quite...More

John Harvard's is definitely a place for the young beer lovers! Unfortunately I am neither. I found the service to be adequate, but not great. When we arrived at the "hostess station" there was no one there, which was unfortunate because there were 6-8 others...More

Good pub food and fresh beer. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Nice seasonal outdoor seating area in the back parking lot, away from the busy mall it is in. Value is good. Wish they could have more healthier options for appetizers and salads. JH is...More
