Happen upon Harry's by a friends suggestion. Glad we did. Sat in the patio area, beautiful day, great service and good food & drinks. Nothing extra special, except great sandwiches, atmosphere & drinks. Nice menu resembles an old newspaper. A nice place to relax, have some good food and people watch. Great little place to have a Sunday lunch. Service... More

From the moment I walk in, I feel uncomfortable. The tables aren't arranged well. The "saloon" feel of the original building is off. If you want to eat on the patio, you have to walk down a dark area past the kitchen that doesn't look well maintained. The food is typical bar fare and quality is okay. If new owners... More

Best Burger in town and a nice patio. Other items on the menu do not quite measure up. Service at the bar is great, but do not expect too much if you are seated elsewhere inside.

What a great event! Came upon it by accident this afternoon, and had a wonderful time people-watching and browsing. Came to Harry's booth, and ordered hamburgers, and were treated to a great lunch! The Taste of Arlington Heights is a once in a year event featuring many of the city's famous restaurants, with booths on several downtown streets; Harry's was... More

I like the outside of the bar in the summer. It is very family oriented, but hard to get a seat because it is so popular and that space outside is limited. This is a good place to come for a great burger. The inside is a bar. Not my kind of thing but if you like to go somewhere... More

comfortable atmosphere in the middle of downtown Arlington Heights. This is a pub with tables in the same room as the bar. There is a separate area upstairs for eating. No frills but the burgers are delicious. Food prices are reasonable. Of course there is the usual bar drink choices. Parking is hard to find so park in the parking... More

A really friendly restaurant/bar in the heart of downtown Arlington Heights. I was impressed with our waitress. She was very attentive and easy to work with. We ordered the BBQ chicken breast dinner that came with 2 sides and a mushroom burger with tater tots. Both entrees were excellent and reasonably priced. Well worth a second visit!

Harry's has that neighborhood bar type of feel to it and you always feel welcomed. The bartenders are always taking care of you and the waitresses make sure you are served quickly and efficiently. Definitely a place that I will return to,
