Diner Reviews
  • "Great food as usual. I had the lobster scampi. The service was slow. This is not the first time that service is slow. We love Harold & Belle's but the service staff spend as much talking to their peers as they do taking care of the customer."

  • "I have been dining at Harold and Bells occasionally for years. The food wasn't as good as I remember from previous visits, which is the reason for the "fair" food rating."

  • "I brought a long time business associate from Australia to Harold's and Belle's because he's expressed an interest in trying soul food. Having grown up coming to Harold's and Belle's , I knew this was the best place to giving then a taste of my culture. Everything was delicious! The portions were huge. And our server Stephanie , was incredible. The atmosphere was loud but colorful. My friends will definitely have a great story to tell about a wonderful evening when they get home."

  • "I've been to this restaurant many, many times, both to eat in and to take out. The food has become mediocre and the service indifferent. My gumbo was watery with inedible crab, and the étouffée was mostly beans, without that thick seafood roux. The caesar salad didn't have a hint of garlic or anchovy. The fried oysters though were delicious."

  • "We had an 8:45pm dinner reservation. When we arrived, we were not greeted. An older lady was standing there; she wore a black suit - salt & pepper bobbed cut. She kept her eyes downward, facing the computer screen. Instead of welcoming us, she asked in a sarcastic tone, how can I help you"? I told her we had a reservation. She tried to act as if she couldn't locate it. Finally, she told us there'd be a 20 min freakin wait, that we could sit in the lounge if we wanted. Her nasty attitude made me want to walk right back out of the restaurant, but my fiancée was craving their catfish, so we stayed. Once seated, we waited another 20 min before a server acknowledged us. The nasty tap or perhaps the food sparked a stomach virus the next morning."

  • "I had a 6pm reservation and didn't get seated until 35 minutes after expected time. In addition to that, a couple of parties that arrived after me were seated before mine. When I inquired I was greeted with an insincere apology and the person I spoke to tried to place blame and say she wasn't there long and asked if I was checked in. After finally being seated it took a while to receive service and food didn't arrive to the table until 715 for a 6pm reservation."

  • "Long time patron. Went for birthday dinner and was disappointed. Subtle changes to menu, food & presentation have major impact. Shrimp scampi used to be served with an amount on the shrimp and the rest on the side. Now its all dumped on the shrimp. It's too rich for that. House salad used to contain the freshest and most crisp ingredients; now its just okay. Our server was good but overheard another diner complaining about watching others being served and not receiving service. Hostess lacked enthusiasm. Restaurant displayed high standards for many years, but not now. Not coming back anytime soon."

  • "The service was great, the waitress was very good and attentive to our requests. The only issue was the table, and the surroundings, there were so many people with very loud conversations a few times my sister and I had to raise our voices to be heard. Other than that everything was really great. It was a great deal of food and I could not eat it all but that is usual with any sized platter if you add a salad."

  • "I had been wanting to try this restaurant for years. I think my expectations were high. It was good but very pricey. Huge quantities of under seasoned food. Nice people, happy to help but not the service found in restaurants of this price range. Crab cakes were excellent! Everybody should try this restaurant at least once and decide for yourself. It is a neighborhood favorite!"

  • "I have not been here for a few years. They still do a bang up job on fried foods. They still give you enough to take home for lunch the next day. They have scaled back on their menu offerings. It is not like before, but still good for the most part."
