I used to go to college near this place and I have visited it often. So, I believe my rating better represents the place than the raters before me. This is an ok looking resturant, dimly lit, cool stained glass, and a good amount of TVs in the bar area. The food is usually average to above average. The beers are constantly changing, so you may catch good stuff or bad stuff. Usually the good stuff comes out in the colder months. The make a great imperial stout, barely wine, a strong holiday red, belgina style dubbels and tripels. However, I cannot recommend anything good that is made in the warmer months. So, if you catch it at a good time enjoy, otherwise go for the food.

[this place has improved a great deal in the last couple of years - especially the beer -vthey have changed brewers twice, but the quality continues to improve - and their happy hour (with half price pints and appetizers) now gets me in here at least once a week - this place is not quite a must stop yet, but itís getting there] Just to give you folks an impression of how bad the beer in this place is - I live about a ten minute drive from it and only visit it a few times a year. Every beer Iíve ever had here has tasted like piss-poor homebrew. The food is actually quite good, so, as a restaurant, itís worth visiting if youíre in the area........just donít drink the beer.

Well this is the second John Harvard location Iíve visited (Union Sq in Providence was the first) and it may well be the last. Boring, pedestrian beers which like the Rock Bottom chain are named differently (and confusingly) at every location; the names are often the best things about them. Awful location along a 4-lane divided highway in the middle of Long Island sprawl, but it was just a few blocks from our motel so wtf. Dark, dark interior, "classy" painted signs around, careless if efficient service, food was surprisingly good. The only beer at this location Iíd think about having again was the cream stout, and even that is nothing to write home about. Even WITHOUT mentioning Southampton there are better brewpubs, and places to drink on Long Island
