John Harvard's Brew House

The John Harvard's Experience

Enjoy slopeside dining at John Harvard's Brew House, located in the Tamarack Club, serving a wide range of "comfort foods" for lunch and dinner daily. The Bar features 12 beers on tap including our own John Harvard's microbrews, Ellicottville Brewing Company and Southern Tier Brewery.

You will find a selection of some of our own ales and lagers, brewed right here in Ellicottville. They are brewed according to the recipes of William Shakespeare (we believe). According to legend, the recipes were brought to America in 1637 by John Harvard, after whom Harvard University is named. Here you'll also find a menu of honest food, prepared from the freshest ingredients and with the same care and thoughtfulness as our beers.

We offer services to our guests such as take out cuisine, summer time poolside service, room service at the Tamarack Club and nightly dinner specials. Our summertime outdoor patio overlooks the pools and the golf course.

October Local Harvest Menu

Enjoy special additions to our menu during the month of October featuring warming fall dishes paired with local craft beers and wine.
