We could tell everything was made fresh and the flavors were superb. Clean facility and inviting decor. Our waitress was friendly and prompt with her service.

We have been at Harvey’s BBQ once before and the food was great! We waited a bit and went back several weeks later and the food was great again! The feel is down home without the sometimes sterile atmosphere of a chain restaurant. We will...More

Super casual, quaint, barbeque joint. But a nice little gem! The menu offered collard greens as a special side and they were tender, flavorful and not terribly salty! I had the combination, brisket and pulled pork with 2 sides (baked beans was my second). The...More

Harvey's BBQ officially began in 1986 when Harvey Schademan and his wife Stephanie got their start selling 50 half-chickens in two hours at a roadside stand. After that initial success, Harvey began researching recipes to create his signature BBQ sauce - a tangy medley with a vinegar-butter base and ketchup-mustard flavoring. Eventually, Harvey and his wife opened a concession trailer with an expanded menu that included pork, beef, ribs and sides such as homemade beans, french fries, onion rings, coleslaw and potato salad. With the success of the concession stand, Harvey began developing sauce recipes to complement his other meats. Harvey and his wife started catering special events and company picnics and opened their first restaurant in 1995. Over the years Harvey has competed in numerous barbecue competitions, winning more than a dozen awards on the East Coast and in Ohio and Canada.
