The first Disappointing time at Harvey's in 19 years. I have loved going and enjoying Harvey's sense my nineteenth birthday. (legal drinking age at that time) Last Tuesday I went in for my regular Wine/cheese burger and fresh hand cut onion rings(The very best in town bar-none). I went early so I could enjoy the fine meal before the USA Soccer game started. I never made it to game time, 1:00PM. The new bartender was working, a very nice young lady. I believe her name was Tina, it was her second day I think. Laurie was on-line at the grill. A usually nice lady with tasteful "English Rose Tattoos" at both her fore arms. Laurie had brought her ten year old boy with her today. I never did catch his name but, it mattered not. He was obviously raised properly, very respectful and quite and kept himself occupied at a booth reading and what-not.They were offering a Patty melt for their Special of the day. I thought I would give it a shot with my onion rings. I only eat my beef rare, I mean to the point that a good vet should be able to save that animal rare. It was not to be this day. My melt arrived medium at best. When I mentioned that I would like another one made rare. Laurie said "No that it was rare in the middle". I said I would not pay for it then at which time she reminded me that I already had.(Pay as you order type of service). So I decided to just enjoy my onion rings which again are always excellent. Laurie then pulled my basket a couple of minutes later and asked me to leave which I did as soon I I finished my beer and left a tip. I have not been back and I miss it. I would go a couple of times a week prior and always tipped 20% or better and had been know to giving a five spot to the cooks that took care of me on the side.
I've had some good times here and it used to be my regular bar. Unfortunately, we boycotted the place and haven't been back in 6 months. There are some VERY rude employees here. Most notably, the skinny man with dark hair who I believe may be a owner or manager - he works the door and sometimes the bar. This man NEVER smiles and has been nasty to me more than a few times, unprovoked. Secondly, the bartender who has black hair and is either skinny with a gut, or pregnant (not sure which). This bartender got an attitude with my girlfriend after she accidentally spilled a drink. She told us that she would have kicked us out, but since we were regulars we could stay. We're not regulars anymore - we've taken our business elsewhere. It's pretty rare that you have such nasty attitudes in employees. I know this bar has an "edge" to it, but when you're provocative to your customers and it's not justified, you're only shooting yourself in the foot. I give this place 2 stars as opposed to 1 because the man doing Karaoke is AWESOME, the drinks are very cheap, and the food is good. However, if you're in the area, take your business elsewhere - I'd suggest Wagon Yard on Bell, or The Loft further south on Cave Creek.
Where do I start....hummm....I give the patrons 5 stars...a very relaxed atmosphere..lots of fun....however I give the owners a minus 1 star!!!!. The place smelled like urine and dirty mops,(badly). We weren't there 30 minutes before an elderly man approached us and introduced himself as " the local pharmacist "... After we got rid of Dr. Feel good we left...still a very nice place though.
Lived in Phoenix in the nineties, and this was my favorite place...Hot Ice my favorite band. Glad to see Chars still in business!!!! I'll be visiting in April and hope to come visit! firstname.lastname@example.org
From the valet parking people up to the restaurant staff very friendly and excellent service. The exquisite meat and super good salad bar, not had much time to visit a restaurant of this quality.
We had dinner out side it was very nice. kids loved it so that's a plus. only problem was the wait, it took a while to get our food but I guess it was worth the wait.
One of the best places I've eaten at. Every time I'm in Phoenix this is my go to spot. Great food, great people, great sports. An all around great place.
The tacos, burritos, tortilla was awesome, if you were looking for a nice Mexican restaurant i highly recommend this one for you.
Delicious. Nice atmosphere, great service. A bit pricy, bit worth it.
It really is The Ultimate Karaoke Experience
