    Little Harry's is a great spot to go if you're visiting Rutland. It's small but the food is always good. Very consistent. The menu was updated and I prefer the old menu, but the food was still good. Can't go wrong by eating here. Definitely make a reservation because it is small.

    Little Harry's is one of our favorite spots to eat in the Rutland area. We especially like their Thursday night Thai 3 course meals, but we aren't able to get there much on Thursdays. The rest of their menu is always superb, as is their waitstaff, and owner Jack is very special!

    While visiting in town, I chose Little Harry's over a couple of other nice farm to table establishments. My husband and I were thrilled with our dinner. Selection of items was broad and diverse and the service was great. We were made to feel at home and even ended up buying a painting off the wall from a great local artist. I may not ever be back in Rutland, but I highly recommend Little Harry's!

    Wife and I had a gift certificate to this place and I was very disappointed since the reviews were really good. Decor was all over the place and the food was very overpriced. I had the scallops casino and I was just ok. My plate had a small portion. My wife had the tortellini in some type of oil. It was very oily and salty. For $20+ A plate I could have gone somewhere else and had better with some to take home. I dint care to see pics under the glass tabletop either. It had the price of a high class restaurant with a diner feel at the table. Any place that chargers more than $20 a plate should not have pictures under the tabletop glass. Very disappointed!! In my opinion it was food. That's it. Nothing to recommend on my end.

    If you're looking for a place that's been around for awhile, that's Little Harry's. Everything was just perfect--Debbie, our waitress, was wonderful; the food was out of this world. Our only regret is that it's so far away from Rochester, NY. We definitely will be back in the Fall.

    General American fare coupled with a swath of thai-inspired food. Interesting! I stuck with the American, going for the stuffed pork chop. The chop was cooked perfectly (slightly pink, still very juicy). The chop wasn't exactly stuffed, but topped with stuffing that was tasty but nothing special (basic homemade style). The best part was the peach chutney, delicious and a perfect accompaniment (the applesauce was good too). The potatoes were odd--deep-fried whole potatoes, ended up a bit dry. Chocolate mousse was fantastic, with tiny bits of chocolate within the silky mousse making a great contrast. It took a long time to get noticed at the door (>10 minutes, with servers passing me several times), but once seated it was perfect.

    The server was not attentive, the meal was tasty but overpriced. Considering the moderate level of business, it took quite a long time for the meal to be prepared. The napkins at the table have a very offensive odor - probably from the solvent used to clean them. The napkins were replaced with paper at my request. Overall, a fair to good dining experience.

    What a great gem Rutland has! Little Harry's was a wonderful experience for the two of us. Great food, prompt service, excellent wine list. Comfortable downtown setting, but be prepared for a pleasant amount of noise as the place is full and tables just a little bit crowded. Had the lobster and crabmeat homemade ravioli with scallops, mussels, mushrooms and artichokes. Just delicious!

    Cozy restaurant with a nice wine list and something for everyone on the menu. Save room for dessert, you won't be sorry. We had the Lemon cheesecake with raspberry sauce. Heavenly! To ensure you get a table, I highly recommend making a reservation via their website as the place fills up quickly after 6:00 PM.

    We really enjoyed Little Harry's! It was our first visit. The dining area is small, not much space between us and the other diners, you could call it cozy! Our waitress was very nice but our service was a tad slow especially considering we had 2 kids and 3 - 4 tables left before we finished our appetizers. If we weren't with kids I wouldn't have minded. We ate too much food because it was so delicious. I wish I had room for dessert! We'll be back :)

    We hadn't been to "Big" Harry's in years since we were completely underwhelmed after a decade of patronization, but we thought we'd give it a try. It was okay, but another decade can pass before we will go back. The ginger wonton appetizer is excellent, but the rest of the food was okay to good.

Food is always well prepared, finely seasoned and the menu has many varieties for all tastes. Drinks are generous and well made. Staff is friendly and attentive. We love Little Harry' s restaurant.

    Little Harry's is one of the BEST restaurants in Rutland. The food is great, beyond great, and the staff is very nice and accommodating. The problem is the "out of towners" who think like to hear themselves talk, or cackle. I understand people like to have fun, but when one table overpowers everything else in the restaurant and no one says anything to them to maybe just be a little more quiet, that ruins the dinner for everyone else. Was trying to have a little romantic dinner and the table next to us was completely unbearable - very loud and obnoxious. What started out as a very nice night turned into frustration and annoyance.

    We had never eaten here and made a reservation after seeing an early movie. We were seated right away in a booth in the back (which wasn't the most comfortable, but definitely passable). Our server was attentive, the food / alcohol menu expansive, and everything we ordered was delicious. I would highly recommend checking this out if you're in Rutland!

    I picked Little Harry's for probably their busiest night, the night of the Rutland Holloween parade. Also my birthday and my nephew's graduation. Flat out Little Harry's staff was still friendly and helpful and the food was very good. Some picky eaters in the crowd found items to their liking while the more adventurous found plenty to enjoy also. A very nice dinner for six and out in time for the parade. I made the right choice and Little Harry's came through.

    Went there based upon open table reviews. Was there the night of an event at the Paramount. The server wisely advised not to wait to place our order because the place was going to be packed. (When we arrived there were very few people). She was right, the place exploded with activity and the servers were working in overdrive. Had the salmon and it was excellent.

    The biggest draw for us is the diversity of menu items. Nothing hum drum about it, lots of interesting flavor combinations that you would never find at other restaurants in the area. It is a small place and tight fit, so not for the claustrophobic. There were three of us, each choosing different fish dishes from the regular menu....everyone was pleased. If there was one negative, it would be that an obvious smoker was seated directly behind me (which is a matter of inches away), and you could pick up the odor off her clothes. I would have requested another table had there been the space and we had not been seated first.
