This is one of the restaurants right inside the Kennedy School, so you can't beat the location when you don't want to go far. The restaurant has a good feel to it. There is a section of seating outside. The staff was nice and fairly...More

We were seated outside in a courtyard area. We ordered two pizzas and the Dagwood Sandwich (which truly is a Dagwood ... see the picture, it was too tall to eat). We were told the Pizzas are cooked in a different kitchen, so the food...More

I'll admit it, I was reluctant to try The Courtyard. Pub food? Not my favorite. When we saw the menu, however, we had another thought. Curried Butternut Squash Soup? Entree Heirloom Tomato Salad? We were all in, and were not disappointed. I had a Terminator...More

We visited based on a recommendation from family. We had never been to a McMinamins property before. We enjoyed cool drinks and nibbles in a casual environment. Afterwards, we explored the property and discovered some of the amenities and decided we would be back on...More
