Must be today was a day of rest for Harlan Social. The staff wasn't exerting itself. A laconic welcome. A 10 minute wait for a poorly trained waiter. Soup served after the main course (and it wasn't hot). Wedge salad would have benefited from a salad spinner (though comforting to know they washed the lettuce). Chicken sausage soup would have...

Nestled in between apartment complex and fairway shopping center, Harlan Social is fun restaurant with creative food. Featuring open kitchen with tv-ed bar, restaurant offers choice of ambiance for dates, families and business. Consistently excellent.

They have a fantastic brunch menu and deal with bottomless mimosas, Bellini or bloody Mary's! The staff are very friendly and helpful and usually do anything to help!

The food was very fresh and artfully presented. The restaurant was so crowded when we were there, but we were served right away. Even though it was packed that night, we enjoyed an intimate setting and were able to converse. Our waiter was delightful! I highly recommend this restaurant for an excellent dining experience!

I have eaten here for lunch quite a few times, but never for dinner. They have a nice salad selection, I have liked every one I have tried. Most recently I had the fried chicken sandwich which was messy, but soooo gooood. It was sort of like a fried chicken BLT. It came with fries, they were good too. They... More

3 of us went for dinner and it was unanimous that it was good, but needed to kick it up a notch. The chopped salad was very good and the homemade chips were great. Entrees didn't live up to the starters though. My burger was messy, hard to eat and didn't have that fresh off the grill taste - average... More

I've eaten here a half dozen times and the food is so good! The burger, salmon ratouille with egg are so delicious. I live in New York and whenever I get the chance, I go there. We ate in the bar area and the bartender was so nice and very helpful with any questions you may have regarding the menu.... More

I have been to Harlan a few times, most recently in September 2016. Do not really know the rest of the menu but the burger has never disappointed. They have a wide selection of beers and other liquors.

Spent a Monday evening with friends living locally. While the access is through an industrial area just South of the train station next to the Fairway grocery store, the restaurant is in a new contemporary building and the ambiance is informal and modern with the wine bar separate from the dining area. Service was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. I savored... More
