somethign happened with our order.... I don't know if the server forgot it or if the kitchen failed to notice it? but one persons mac and cheese was dried out and the two orders of chicken piccata were rubbery, like they sat too long under a heat lamp. Usually the place is great!

Food was delicious, restaurant was quiet and patrons were spread out. Reasonable prices for portion size and flavor. Service was a little slow, as to be expected with short staffing due to pandemic.

We ate upstairs where the noise level was much less than downstairs.
The sashimi tuna salad was perfectly done and the squash soup was very tasty.
All of the portions were ample and the service was attentive.

What a great night! The homemade empanadas, piping hot, we had chicken with the fresh lettuce, tomatoes and sour cream were a home run! The cheesesteak was delicious, fresh snd crunchy peppers, cheese and the perfect soft roll was yummy. They have a great selection of micro brew beers and a full bar too. Our waiter was on top of it - customer service was great! We went on a Friday and they had a guitarist playing which added to the ambulance!

It was very hot and no A/C. We asked them to turn on the fan above us and it took them an hour and a half to turn it on. The steak was very fatty. It took a long time to get a glass of water but the server was very nice.

I booked for my bestfriends birthday. Never been there but heard good things sbout the place. We arrived a few minutes prior than our timed reservation. We were greeted by a gentleman who asked if we would like to be seated inside or outside. We choice outside, he explained that we could pick a table and someone would be with us shortly. We sat at that table for about 10 minutes as workers came in an out and no one paid us any mind, so we left. I would most certainly understand if the place was suoee busy, but it was not and for that I will never go again, and my word of mouth will reflect just that.

The place doesn’t resemble a brewery. It looks more like an Irish pub. There were very few people when we came in - it was a Monday night. There was six of us and they seated us at a table fairly far enough from everyone else. However later on, a couple was seated very close to us, definitely less than 6 feet. The waitress took our order pretty quickly after we were seated however our main courses didn’t come out for at least half an hour or maybe longer. That part was very frustrating. And while waiting, the waitress didn’t stop by to check on us or to give us an estimate of when our food would be coming out. Despite all of this the restaurant charged an automatic 20% gratuity - definitely not commensurate with the level of service we were provided.

Service was very slow. Wait staff was not personable at all, seemed like they wanted to be anywhere else but there. Food was mediocre at best. Country music was playing through the speakers on St. Patrick’s Day, no ambiance at all. Just over all disappointing.

For a nice Sunday evening meal the Harvest Moon delivered a great experience. The crowds seem to avoid Sunday night so it was not crowded. The staff were very attentive and the food was good.

Food was good. The waiter was kind. One of our guest ordered the chicken and waffles and received potatoes as the waffle. Not sure if this is the intended entree, but wouldn't have ordered that if known it would be potatoes and not actual waffles. Was not told there would be a substitute. All other entrees were enjoyed.
