We stopped in for lunch yesterday to give The Harp on Church a try. I had the Irish Reuben with potato salad. The sandwich was delicious.....nice lean tender corned beef and plenty of it! Best one I've had in a long time! The potato salad had a hint of horseradish I think......not my favorite, but it was good. My husband... More

We brought some friends for dinner. It was their first visit and want to go back. We have had several of the menu items on past visits and none have disappointed us. Our favorites are the Harp salad with skinny fried onions and a wonderful dressing and Irish pizza with unbelievably thin crust, carmelized onions, thinly sliced red potatoes, and... More

We went here for the first time Saturday night, the place was packed. We sat at the bar, I think they only serve beer and wine, never saw mixed drinks being made. I had fish & chips, 3 large pieces of fish which was very good, not impressed with the fries. Husband had shepherd's pie which was very good. No... More

Harp on Church is slightly away from the other restaurants in the Main Street area of Downtown Willimantic, which is perfect because it means easier parking. There were 3 of us last night and we went to Harp a little before 8 PM. We were able to find a table. There were still plenty of spaces at the bar. Ordered... More

Cozy restaurant, fun bar, but for someone with celiac there aren't many options and they are often out of the few things they do carry.

The place is small but food and drinks are very good. Great place to meet and enjoy some fine people. A l little bit more of a crowd wit the college students back.

The Reuben's are the best! Calamari Salad (sad to say, not always available) but if it is, order it!

I LOVE this place! The food is amazing - very skilled chef, very creative menu. The beer selection is good as well. Small and quaint, you may have to wait for a table, but the quality of food is so worth it!

Tucked away on the sides streets of willimantic close to ECSU and QVCC this little Irish pub is more than meets the eye! As I regularly go there and almost didn't write a review because I want to keep this place known to myself I realized it should be known! The food is irishly unique from Irish pizza and garlic...
