Review of The Harvest Grille

The Harvest Grille
Ranked #1 of 3 Restaurants in Jefferson
Price range: US$7 - US$32
Restaurant details
Reviewed 20 December 2015

I've been going to The Harvest Grille since they opened in Sterling and after they moved to Jefferson.
Tim and Susan are really nice people who care about their customers, have a lot of experience in the restaurant business and do a great job with a wide range of offerings and daily specials, including gluten free and vegetarian choices. Susan makes most of the desserts and Tim and Brendan work out the specials. Their staff are very nice and try to make their customers happy.
It's true that they had to work out some logistics with moving to a much larger facility but they have been mostly worked out now. And, they have maintained their focus on and continually provided a high-end selection of meat and fish offerings in both their lunch and dinner menus as well as their daily specials. I've attached pictures of just some of what I've tried: Haddock Francese, Haddock Fish and Chips, Brendan's Mile High Meatloaf and Salmon Encrusted with Panko served with Horseradish Sauce.
Missing pictures: Blackened Haddock with Hollandaise Sauce and Sweet Potato Fries, Steak Au Poivre and Tim's great selection of soups (Clam Chowder and his gumbo are my 2 favorites!).
If you want some excellent fish, Angus Steak prepared your way, Clam Chowder that beats Legal Seafood (IMO) and owners who will greet you and work to give you the experience you want, treat yourself to a visit; especially lunch for an even more personal experience. And don't forget Susan's desserts; seasonal as well as original offerings.

Our first visit went like this:
Greeting was excellent.
Decor was very nice.
Waitstaff attentive and courteous.
Stuffed mushroom appetizers were superb.
Stuffed haddock was ok but my baked potato was over cooked.
Baked haddock with mashed potato was excellent. Price was modest.

This restaurant is now in Holden Massachusetts. Despite some less than stellar reviews , my wife and I decided to give it a try and were very pleasantly surprised by our experience. We shared two very nice appetizers and then enjoyed two above average Seafood entrees- Stuffed Haddock and a Seafood Trio. Well prepared and well proportioned. The service was also very friendly and prompt and our bill was very reasonable. Our overall experience was quite good and we will definitely return.

Have been here twice - opening night (total disaster) and again 2 months later to see if it had improved. Well, it hasn't improved. Food unremarkable. Service slow. Had to ask individually for each glass of water. Acoustics in this place are dreadful. Anyone with hearing loss should NOT go here unless they are dining alone. The only thing I enjoyed on either visit was the rolls. The rolls are excellent. The butter was OK too. That was about it. White wine served at room temperature on one visit.
