Our goal and passion are summed up in our tagline. Harvey’s was founded on the idea of change and adaptability. Dining has been forever changed with the current events and the ease of technology. Our restaurant will combine multiple ways of dining, finding farm fresh ingredients, homewares with neighborhood style hospitality. The Little City is a perfect place for us to call home. Small town feel with a modern flair. We cannot wait for you to stop by and become a new friend over some food and drink!

Tammy began her journey in the restaurant business at the tender age of 13. In her home state of Maine, she grew up with fresh fruits and vegetables and to this day loves to garden and cook. It’s no surprise Tammy built a career as a restaurant manager because she excels at entertaining, chatting with customers, and making everyone around her feel like family. She has spent the last decade as a waitress, bartender and manager in Falls Church, after working and raising her family in Benita Springs, Florida. When she’s not at the restaurant, Tammy can be found cruising around Virginia on her beloved motorcycle Ruby.
Harvey's in Falls Church is a testament to experience and family
From the moment I eased onto a bar stool at Harvey's, I knew I had found a friend. I had a panoramic view of the kitchen. The hearth in the corner flickered flames in the back of its cast-ceramic floor, as a cook slid plates in and out of the oven's half-moon opening.
