We are from CT. My husband and I went to the Mass. State House today. I'm GF, so my Find Me GF app said Harvard Gardens was a great place. It DEFINITELY was! I had the Beacon Hill Cheeseburger with herb roasted potatoes (off the GF menu) and my husband had the steak tips (regular menu). My burber was very juicy and delicious! The roasted potatoes were good as well. My husband said his steak tips were good. When we come back to Mass, we will be back! More...

Harvard Gardens came in clutch for my proposal. I proposed to my girlfriend at the end of April and I needed somewhere for my 40 guests to go after I proposed. I called Harvard Gardens and talked to their manager Mike who was more than willing to have a section reserved for me and my 40 guests. They let us come and put up decorations and even let us stay longer than we originally talked about. Everyone had a great time and they had good food and drinks. My now fiance was impressed that I got a bar that was willing to have all of us there for this special occasion. I would definitely recommend this place to others and I will be going there any time I'm in the area. More...

Group of 11, eated promptly (with reservation), drinks ordered and food ordered shortly thereafter. Service was excellent, correct and food was delicious. This is a bit of the old world, wood and leather and history all around. Great memorable meal. More...

This place was recommended by a friend and it was great! The food is what you would expect from a bar but with a twist! We got the clam chowder, the fish and chips, high society sliders, and the Smithfield Nachos. The atmosphere was nice and the food was reasonably priced.We were surprised at the portion sizes. For one, the sliders were really really interesting as they are served with a quail egg on top! The clam chowder met our expectations, however, we are not from New England, so there is that. The fish and chips were large enough to share for two people, however, not knowing that, we also got the Smithfield Nachos. The nachos were nothing to "write home about" but were by no means bad. I would recommend this place if you are near Beacon Hill by The Esplanade. More...

The only place with gluten free options we could find after searching around for about an hour. This was in October(ish) 2018. My friend texted me a few mintues ago (April 2019) saying that he was just in the same situation and he, again, ended up here. All gluten-free roads lead to Harvard Gardens. Great food, great atmosphere. More...

I'm at MGH a lot and I have resisted going here for a long time because I thought "If you're right by MGH, you probably don't have to be good. People will come because of the convenient location no matter how mediocre the food is." Boy, was I wrong! I wish I hadn't waited. Great food, great service. I had the grilled cheese sandwich - aged chedder, tomato, pesto, really good bread - and it was delicious. Also had fries and kettle chips and both were excellent. The staff was attentive, friendly, and fast. I'll definitely be back. More...

This place was awesome went there twice while I was in Boston as it was just down the street from my hotel the Liberty. Went once for lunch the food was amazing but they did give me a lot of food. The portions were very large but very good. The second time I went was in the evening for late-night drinks. It was very quiet and wasn't crowded. The bartender was very nice and friendly and knowledgeable about the area and interested in talking with us. More...

Harvard Garden is the Most greatest Pub/Restaurant is Boston. Scenery was very Romantic, Laid back and Historical. Great Service especially a waitress name Elizabeth, she was so very nice!

Definitely will be coming back again and be recommending it to anyone and everyone. More...

My wife had the Grilled Chicken sandwich and I had the Beacon Burger (not Bacon Burger, but has bacon aioli and I added strips of bacon) and we both feel we "Won". My wife said it is one of the best chicken sandwiches she has had, ever! My burger was well seasoned and very tasty. I would definitely recommend Harvard Gardens if you're in the Boston, Beacon Hill area. We had a great server named Ellie, she was fun and personable and gave great suggestions. She suggested the brownie Sunday for desert and she was right. The brownie melted the ice cream too quickly, but what do you expect!? More...

30 July 2017

Decent after-work bar and restaurant with moderate acoustics, not nearly as loud as other places along Cambridge Street. Beer list is short but has some interesting, if predictable, options beyond the standard industrial lagers. The cocktail section is much more interesting, and the food is quite a bit better than you might expect. More...
