This is my first review, but I wanted to write one for the Harmon that was at least within the last 3 years. I had a great experience the few times I've been to the Harmon. The food has always been good; last time I went, my burger was cooked just like I'd ordered (medium rare) and the garlic fries are almost to die for. The atmosphere can be louder or quieter depending on time of day, but even in the late evening, it's not so loud that you can't carry on a conversation with your table-mates or so quiet that you can't drop a spoon on the floor without heads turning.\r
We had our waitress running back and forth for a million different things and a few people showed up to our table to join us late. She took each new order and request with a smile and as much speed as she could (it was a busy night there). We had things on separate checks and basically didn't make it that easy for her but she was pleasant and fast.\r
I don't drink alcohol so I can't testify to the beer, but combine the compliments from the last few reviews about the beer to my compliments of the food and service and you've got a great resturant for a night in Tacoma.
Pros: Food, neat atmosphere, sporting events on TV, service
