Used to be a 5 out of 5

This place used to be a 5 out of 5 for many years. All the food was made in house and the food and service was always excellent. The food seems to be starting to be from the box now, so food quality has deteriorated unfortunately. The waitress I used to like no longer works there and I used to... read more

We have been eating at Harold's since the 1960's and I can't remember ever having a bad meal! This is not an "upscale" restaurant, but a good old "roadside cafe". The Staff are friendly and the portions are good size. Definitely a great place for breakfast too!

I want to thank Harold's for destroying my first opportunity to eat solid food in weeks. I came there with my husband for dinner and all I wanted was a baby plate of mashed potatoes and I explained VERY CLEARLY that I had not eaten in weeks and had to be careful but all I got was a snitty "I...

Family restaurant, so if headed east on TC, easy stop on south side of highway. Family straight forward, burgers, sandwiches, more choices in evening. Nothing fancy, fair sized portions. Bathrooms are downstairs, but there is one on mail floor, but a very busy spot close to kitchen dish pit.

This place has the best restaurant meat loaf bar none - and you can get a half portion as the full size is enough for 2 meals for me! Great family restaurant - 3rd generation. Can't beat supporting the locals.

If this was my first review I would give them 2 stars instead of 3 but as I know their breakfasts are fantastic I will just downgrade them a bit for their dinners - a big disappointment. The extra large steak knife that came with the "special" pork chops should have been a clue. Pretty tough - tougher than this... More

Doesn't matter if you come as a large group or a couple. The food comes out quickly and tastes great. This is a place with longstanding history. Hard working staff that have been here for years. We have come as a group of thirty including children and been seated and fed promptly. We have also come late in the evening... More

We usually stop here en route to our destination. A bit disappointing the last time we visited. They seated us at a dirty table and the service was slow. The waitress was at the end of her shift and we were not even done our meal and she was already bringing the bill. Parking is always a challenge and we... More
