Atmosphere- Like the dark cherry finish on the bar tables and bar. Were already decorated in Christmas regalia. Harrison's brews all their tap beers right on sight. They have a big glass enclosure at the south end of the bar where you can see the brew kettle in all their immaculate glory. The bar also doubled for a cigar lounge which helped to the classy atmosphere.
Quality- The only beers they had on tap were the ones they brewed on site. I thought this was very refreshing to not see any Miller and Bud signs anywhere in the bar. But you could get them buy the bottle. All the beers I tried were excellent except there LaGrange Light.
Service- My server was a attractive older Dutch woman, this does not effect my scoring tooo much ;). Who was very attentive and was always there to refill; my beer when I finished.
Selection- As good as there home brewed beers were, The selection was to what they brewed and the bottles of Miller and Bud. But I still think there selection was average considering there range of home brewed beers on tap abd there quality.
Food- I had two appetizers of cajun popcorn shrimp with my date and had pecan crusted catfish with a mayo-mustard sauce. This was an choice considering I always go with steak at a place like this. They had a 32 oz. porterhouse, an aged cognac steak along with many other excellent cuts of meet and fish dishes.
For what the menu advertised with their steaks, i am defenetly going back to try out the rest of their beers and other selections on the menu. About $19 for the steak and about $30 for that 32 oz. porterhouse, hence my resonable price rating.

Go into Harrison's and it's obvious right off the bat that they're going for a slightly more upscale look and atmosphere than your average brewpub. They somewhat pull it off and somewhat not. The food is above good, though nothing what you'd expect based on the looks. The beer ranges from average for that style to actually very good. I especially liked their "Red" beer. All in all, I would recommend this one to any brewpub loving person, but I would warn them not to get taken in by the atmosphere.. it still is just a good brewpub that tries to be more than it is!
