Diner Reviews
  • "The best place to dine is in the historic authentic log cabin part of this restaurant. Thanks to the owners, they preserved an important aspect of Reisterstown's history. Dining on thee porch is also delightful IF a person does not mind watching the traffic on Reisterstown Road. This is the only restaurant in Reisterstown area that offers fine dining. Thanks."

  • "I hadn't been to The Grill at Harryman House in about 20 years. I was pleasantly surprised about everything -- the decor, the food, and the service. I had the shrimp and grits. The shrimp was slightly overcooked but the goat cheese grits were delicious. Several others in my party had the crab cakes which, everyone agreed, were outstanding. Our server was very friendly and attentive. We were seated in the more casual area of the restaurant. The acoustics were a bit loud and the t.v.'s were distracting, but I enjoyed the overall elegantly rustic decor."

  • "My husband and I use to frequent Harryman House on a somewhat regular basis, but after this last visit we wont retun. The service was great, vert nice and attentive. The problem is their food and prices. One trout entree and spaghetti squash. Food was barely warm and presentation was something I could do at home. Slices of bell peppers and shredded carrots like they came from a bag? That cost $22. The spaghetti squash was tasty, but again barely warm and very small portion. The dessert was the best. Awesome cheesecake. Could tell it was homemade. The menu themed idea is cheesy to say the least. Some definite changes at Harryman House that arent positive. Food is underwhelming. Ill keep going to Glyndon Grill"

  • "We dine at Harryman house several times per year, and usually have no complaints. During this visit, however, we were kept waiting well beyond expectations. We are hoping that we just caught them on an off night. They were obviously short staffed."

  • "Our entrees were very good, but very tiny. My crab cake seeed to be about 2 oz. and the only other item on the large white plate was a minute portion of an overly oily salad. My husband's steak was large, and tasty, a bit too well-done, but could have stood some veggies."

  • "We have been dining at the Harryman House for years and found this past experience below our normal expectation. The meal was mediocre, did not like the change in menu and very overpriced for the service we received."

  • "Dined with a friend on Monday night which to our delight was mussels special night. 4 kinds of mussels for $10. You could pair it with a glass of wine for $5. And frites with unique sauces for $4. We tried two of the four and couldn't decide which sauce we loved more! Both delicious and rivaled mussels I have had at restaurants known for mussels in Manhattan. And you can not beat the deal. I have been going to the Harryman House for many years since I live in the neighborhood but I think lately the food is better than ever. Very happy to have this gem in my hood."

  • "This was our second trip in the past six months. Even with the seasonal menu changes we were not disappointed. Everything was delicious and beautifully prepared. With the exception of the chicken dish the portions were just right (too small on the chicken dish). The menu variety was excellent and the flight pairings of wine added a nice touch. Based on our last two trips we would recommend the salmon stack in winter. It was to die for! The artichoke appetizer in summer was yummy. The vegetarian pasta was delicious although the tomato sauce was a bit sweet for our personal taste. But it was beautifully presented and cooked just right. The historical ambiance of the building makes it warm and cozy inside. . We would definitely go back."

  • "We have eaten here many times, and got the level of food we expected. Our service was good, but not as attentive as it could have been, we had to flag down an alternate a couple of times, but they were all very pleasant about helping. It's expensive, even at lunch, if you have drinks, but I always enjoy going here."

  • "We were disappointed in our visit. We go there frequently and this visit was definitaly not up to par. It was a graduation dinner for my daughter so we were a party of 8. Our reservation was for 6:00 on a Thursday night. After we had ordered, the waiter returned to say that they had already run out of one of the dinner specials for that night, and we needed to reorder, that is poor kitchen planning. In addition, two in our party ordered the lamb chops and they were extremely tough and could barely be cut with a knife. Also, it took an extremely long time to get our food, a party of 8 is large, but there was a party of 6 next to us who came in after us and received their food before us. Also, creme brulee was burnt not carmalized."

  • "The menu has changed since the last time we ate at The Grill at Harryman House and IMHO it is now very limiting on the entree side. Overall a good meal but really nothing to get excited about. "

  • "I took my BFF there for his Birthday Dinner. We both ordered the Filet and requested it cooked medium. Mine was a bit overcooked but was very good, none the less. We split an order of asparagus and that was delicious. I was surprised to learn that the Main course did not include a vegetable. I had the BEST Caesar salad!!! Make a reservation!!"

  • "I have been a customer for many years and have always taken my family and friends here to dine. I has always been a five star place for me but this last visit changed the ratings. The eggplant fries were soggy and tasted of oil. the crab cakes were the size of golf balls and although very good were equivalent to one crab cake. My daughter had the tuna tartar and she said it was tasty but the fried things to spread them on where not easy to spread and made a mess while eating. My husband had the lamb and he was pleased. The duck was okay per my brother-in-law. I paid $300.00 for a dinner that was okay. "

  • "Brunch and dinner are both pretty good. However, the last time I went, the service was SO slow. It was 25 minutes between the waitress giving us a dessert menu and then coming back to see if we wanted to order dessert...at that point the desire to have anything passed and we just wanted to be done.. had to wait another 20 or so minutes for the check. "

  • "We make a habit of going out a day early for Mother's or Father's Day - that way we avoid the crowds and enjoy a pleasant date with the kids. This place does not disappoint. Very good food that pleases all our pallets, very nice service; quiet because of the time we chose."

  • "I'd been to the Harryman House years ago (10+) and while good, it was very old school and stuffy. Looking for a late Saturday location close to home - stumbled across this one and gave it a go. Wow! Everything was very very good!"

  • "I am a frequent visitor to Harryman House, but food & service quality have diminished recently. It seemed that, for several months, we got amazing service every time we visited. However, the last several times we felt that servers were overbearing at the beginning of the meal and disappeared once the food arrived. On our most recent visit, we were greeted by a server to whom we gave our drink order. Several minutes later, another server came and asked us again. We informed him that we had already been helped & he rudely insisted that we give him our order again. Food was mediocre & server checked back with us so frequently that it became irritating. Once we had our food over 15 mins elapsed before we saw him again. Unlikely to visit again."

  • "We arrived early for our reservation and had to sit in the bar while we waited. The bartender was waiting tables and was very busy so it took awhile to get his attention. But once we did, he was excellent. We got beverages and appetitzers quickly and were ready for our reservation. The hostess never came to get us but our table was ready when we checked with her. We had a nice table for 6 and roomy, which was a nice surprise. Our waiter was wonderful. Attentive and gave advice on some great menu items. We had the cinnimon french toast, chesapeake eggs benedict, shrimp and grits, lobster mac & cheese, and a couple of burgers. Everything was perfect. Thanks for a happy Easter!"

  • "We chose the Harryman House for a family dinner celebrating my 50th birthday. The service was exceptional and the food was beautifully presented. It was wine night so we got a nice bottle for 40 per cent off! (Wednesday). For dessert we had a perfect creme brulee. It was a perfect place for a special occasion without breaking the bank-you get a lot of atmosphere and charm. We live in Westminster and a lot of our friends make the short drive to this wonderful restaurant."

  • "The atmosphere was lovely, with votive candles flickering nearby in the fireplace.The specials and the menu included a nice variety of choices, with interesting flavor combinations. We 6 were all happy with our selections. I had the eggplant fries appetizer with yogurt dipping sauce, and the open faced blackened mahi mahi sandwich. The fries needed salt (easily added), but were crisp and delicious. The mahi mahi sat atop a thin crisp slice of brioche, and a wonderfully flavorful tomato concasse. These 2 dishes made an ample and delectable dinner. A delicious and unusual special entre was rockfish on a bed of warm tabouli. Prices were moderate, creating an delicious, high value evening!"
