What's not to love? Hot turkey sandwich with gravy, yum! Good family style restaurant, freshly roasted turkey and all the sides. Quick, comfortable and tasty!

Harry's Hofbrau is a cross between a fastfood establishment and an old school steakhouse. You need to line up with trays and pick your food. Every day there is a special. I went on a Saturday because they offer a sizable Ribeye steak for $17, that's less expensive than the Ribeye prices on the local Max restaurants. Then you take... More

I'd like to like this place, but I haven't ever had good food here. I know a few people who love things here because it's so cheap, but really the food is just too dried out for any price to justify it. The positives, besides price, are the full bar, friendly staff, quick service, and drinks are priced even better... More

this is like walking into the 70's. typical haufbrau, you go down the line and order yo food, it's plated, and handed to you at the register. the menu is online if you need to see, but very common, roast beef, pork, ham, etc. for around $14/plate you get a lot of pretty good food. I stay across the street... More

Fresh, warm meat cut directly from a roasted turkey cooked that day is one reason I keep going back. As you slide your tray down the cafeteria style food pick-up line you will see lots of fresh, very good food to choose from at a fair price. Not a "dining experience" and not cutting edge cuisine, but you will enjoy... More

Harry's roast turkey dinner with all the trimmings is my personal favorite but almost every other delicious dinner choice is possible there. There are daily specials to keep things interesting and the very charming chefs serving behind the counter, along with the rest of the helpful, friendly staff, make the whole experience most enjoyable. We usually have to take home... More

Harry's has been around since I was a kid, what a great place. Really good hearty food at a reasonable price. It's convenient to take stuff to go or to hang out and have a few drinks with your meal. It's just a fun place that will leave you smiling with a happy and full belly. By the way, I'm... More

Harry's is awesome especially when you are really hungry! They have the best turkey or roast beef dinner; lots of mashed potatoes and gravy to go with it. No so well known are there salads; the Roadhouse, Thai chicken and southwest. They are very good and like all their other potions, very large. I never get the desserts that are... More

Harry's is a great option and go hungry. They have many specials each day and their Turkey is awesome. I appreciate the consistency of knowing when I go here that I will get the same quality of food today as I got many years ago. Their sides and desserts are really good also. Of course you can order a sandwich... More
