Golden harvest is a great place, but, be prepared to stand in line. I have come here quite a few times, every time i do come here there is a line. Sometimes its only 20 minutes sometimes it is 1.5 hours. The food is great, it is a good price, but the service can be poor and you may have... More

Picked up my daughter and niece from MSU and headed over for a late breakfast around 10:30 am. We had to wait outside for about 5 minutes before being shown inside. We were seated at the counter. There was a party of 6 and 3 ahead of us and we were all shown in at the same time. I believe... More

Finally visited Golden Harvest. Had friends in from out of state. It was cold outside and therefore the wait wasn't all that bad. The food was incredible. Our friends really got a kick out of the eclectic nature of the joint and the staff were all fantastic. Thumbs up to Golden Harvest. Can't wait to return.

On weekends you may have a long wait. I was last there on a Saturday in the summer. I've also been on a weekday for lunch with no wait. No idea how long the line would be in the winter. You stand and sit out of doors. Either way, try to sit at counter. The cooks put on an amazing... More

I have heard such wonderful things about this restaurant and was excited to go there for lunch. As we entered the restaurant we were blasted by music. Very loud music. I couldn't even hear what the server was saying to me. I enjoy music while dining, but for such a small place it was obnoxious. I truly wondered how anyone... More

First off great food! You may have to wait in line for a while outside, or even sit with people you don't know. OH but the food....seriously. Mainly breakfast items, huge portions, all delicious. It's very small and kitchy with lots of swag to look at on the walls. Usually loud music, and maybe even Children of the Damned playing... More

Line for breakfast is always way too long. I hear its great, but cant confirm. After 15 + yrs in the area, have never been by when there is no line to get seating.

I first heard of this place from my mother who went to have breakfast at Golden Harvest with a friend. So course I wanted to check it out for myself. The inside is a "hipster's heaven" since it is decorated with very bizarre and eclectic things. It is a very small restaurant, but that is the beauty of it. It's... More

Best food ever! Yes, you will wait in line to get into a dive restaurant. We arrived 15 minutes after they opened and waited outside about 45 minutes for a table. Once inside, there is loud music playing and you may be seated next to strangers. You will wait again to get your food, but it is worth it! We... More
