Good family restaurant with great home cooked meals

The food is like home cooked meals from home- good portions and reasonably priced with great variety. While busy at meal times dont let the full parking lot prevent you from trying to get in as more seating than parking. Has been operating a long time with great service so many locals know quality... read more

Ok...so we were Harold's customers for yearssss..the food was home cooked and good. Not anymore! There was 8 of us that went. The pork cutlet was tough, the baked potato seemed like it was cooked 2 days ago and left in the fridge and reheated. The Harold's clubhouse had mushy tasteless tomatoes and the turkey wasn't the same as before.... More

Harold's used to be pretty good. I think that's why they're still always fairly busy; people come in out of habit, not because the food or service is phenomenal. However, I avoid this restaurant because the prices keep climbing and the quality keeps sliding. Any substitution is charged. The last time I visited I asked for side salad instead of... More

Food and service are great. The amount of food you get for price is very good. Staff are always close of you need them. A friendly atmosphere for all ages. Breakfast is fantastic.

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... 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
