    My son lives near by and he thought it looked like a nice place. I checked it out on their web site and I agreed. We met there for drinks then dinner, were really impressed. I think it's a neighborhood secret, very quaint and comfy all decorated for Halloween. Great food, very friendly staff and all around great experience.

    We went there for Sunday brunch and loved it! Great food and great service. I had the breakfast pasta, which sounds odd, but was delicious! Will definitely be going back.

    Harry's is on our "regular" list of go-to places in the neighborhood. We can always count on getting a good meal, regardless of what we order. The menu changes periodically, while remaining varied, interesting, and tasty. The staff is friendly, helpful, and attentive.

    Prices were very reasonable, service was great and the food was delicious. It was my first time there and was recommended by a client as a great lunch spot. He was correct and I hope to have lunch or dinner there again in the future.

    We have been going to Harry's for years. It has good atmosphere - bustling but not so noisy that you can't have conversation. Food is consistently good - plenty of lighter choices or dishes to share. Their house side salad is our long time favorite. Wish I could repeat it at home. We live close by and often end up there when we aren't quite sure what we want. Everyone leaves happy. Also enjoy dining at the bar.

    We've been to Harry's scores of times, and have yet to be disappointed. The menu is varied, and whether we're there for brunch or dinner, we can always find something to please the palate. The have everything from classic bar food to meat loaf. Their quiches are very good, as are their omelettes.

    Pedro
    Dined on 5/11/2014
    Service was slow and unprofessional, when asked if they served certain items she gave the dismissive response of "if it's on the menu". She didn't write down our order, nor had a pad of paper and then when repeating our order back to us didn't have the order correct. Eventually she disappeared all together and after 15 minutes we sought her ought to no avail. We then had to find the Manager to receive and pay our bill. I hope they take action with that server because the food was excellent and the ambience very good.

    We eat at Harry's all the time and love to sit at the bar for dinner, but this time we had a party of 6 for Mother's Day brunch. It was perfect and delicious. Never had brunch there before. Noticed they have a weekday happy hour. Definitely will be back for that! Yummy food!!

  • 2nd Visit - Cust Svc Issue
    WilsonVIP
    Dined on 4/23/2014
    A recent previous group visit was so great that we decided to return with another couple. We asked for separate checks which we were told they don't do. My spouse & I will often add appetizers and deserts when accompanying other couples may not. We don't like to 'run up the bill' that isn't split out fairly. When you don't split checks you lose revenue. That simple. And really it's the server being lazy. When I phoned the mgr the next day, she said in the future to take the check to the bar or find a mgr & they would be happy to split the charges. That's all we wanted,for the charges to be split. Use a calculator. It's a server training issue. Too much work as a patron to do the servers job & find a mgr. We won't return. Mgr didn't get it.

    Our group of 6 arrived and were immediately seated. This very busy restaurant didn't deter our super efficient server from being prompt in her greeting and starting a round of beverages. The atmosphere is highly attractive, clean and very attractive. Comfortable seating nicely arranged tables. Menu offering is broad with excellent choices that include many fresh seafood options along with beef and their signature meatloaf (which is to die for). This was our first visit and all six of us agreed that was an excellent dining experience. We meet monthly to find and try new restaurants but we 're-run' good finds - and this is a good find. We'll be as a group and back as individuals as well. All dinner entrees were very good. Good drinks too.

    We have dined at Harry's every couple of weeks for about a year now, and frankly have never had a meal that we did not like. The food is always delicious, including the specials, which we frequently try. We do not often get the same servers, but they are always friendly and good at their job.

    Great atmosphere. Buffalo chicken nachos are not really all that good, but I would recommend the Friday fish fry. Also, ordered the herb crusted flank steak with asparagus. The steak was cooked to perfection, but the asparagus was overlooked to carbon sticks.

    The bartender was nice, friendly and we enjoyed sitting at the bar while waiting for our table. Our service in dining are was sloooow! We ordered the calamari it was chewy, buffalo nachos were piled high w chips and topped with cheese and bland, dried out chicken. On top was sour cream then the entire thing was doused in Buffalo sauce. Unappetizing and hot! The chicken wings were ok but everything tasted as though it was sitting out for awhile. If it weren't for the great company I was with it would have been a worthless experience. The waitress also told us that the food was already prepared and we weren't allowed to make changes to certain items on the menu. We all said we will not be making the trip out there again.

    I really liked the ambiance of this place, especially the lamps on the long bar. We were a party of four with reservations and were seated as soon as we arrived. The service was pretty good. But the food was good, but not anything that special. My daughter had the salmon special that came with fried green tomatoes. The tomatoes were "over fried" and had too much breading. My husband and I had the fish tacos which didn't seem to have much flavor. The fish tacos that I have had in the past typically come in a soft shell but these were hard shells which is different. I liked the place enough to give it another try in the future.

    My sisters were coming into town and I randomly selected this restaurant because they had decent variety of foods. I went out on a limb and ordered the steak. It was amazing and the potatoes in mushroom sauce was ridiculous. They also had a pretty decent beer selection. The ambience was good and the service was excellent. I will definitely be back.

    The service and food were great. The new decor is a little dark, they moved from a modern to a rustic feel. The atmosphere is a mix of pub and restaurant. The menu is has a variety of choices to meet most tastes. The price is moderate, with most items between $12 and $20. Will definitely return.
