Harvey’s Place a new restaurant in downtown Ashland.
As the Ella Fitzgerald song goes “ At last my love has come along…  Well, not love exactly, but we have waited a long time for the space that housed the former Chateaulin Restaurant to be occupied again.
After looking so sad for so long it’s great to have an exciting new restaurant in downtown Ashland. Harvey’s Place is open for business, and we think it’s a wonderful addition to all the other fabulous restaurants in town. Very good food, friendly service and great bar. Harvey’s Place will be open after the plays for a late night snack and drink, see you there!
