Love this place! You can always count on Harry's for their meat, sides, salads, and yummy desserts. Took my 88-year-old father in law for his first ever pastrami sandwich. He loved it, along with the potato salad and the creamy chocolate pie. The beer selections satisfy even the most discriminating craft beer fans, and we found a couple of IPA's... More

Bizarre place. Across the front is a cafeteria style place filled with retirees. In the back is a beer bar that has an amazing selection of taps and bottles. Had a turkey dinner. Think a full Thanksgiving meal. It was pretty good, and at $14, was mighty cheap for turkey, gravy, stuffing, cranberries, wheat roll, and two sides of my... More

I've only been here a few times, but I always think this place is a good idea. "Big ol' slabs of meat? Sure, sounds great!" The reality is that the meat seems bland, overcooked, and...well, just meh. It's not terrible, just not exceptional in any way but for the decor.

Stand in line and enjoy the old world style of the decorations. When you walk along the counter it is always hard to decide between the hot turkey, french dip or hot pastrami. All cooked to perfection and delicious. They also have a pretty good bar/beer selection.

Harry's is old school food. If you want white tablecloths, waiter's, and rate things as if all restaurants need to provide that type of atmosphere then do not even bother trying this place. If you appreciate different styles of food, then keep reading. Harry is old school because this old carving station type of joint - roast beef, turkey, meat... More

Harry's has a selection like no other restaurant around. Whether you feel like a "sammich" Deli style, or a full on meal. It's YOUR choice. Not like most restaurants with a "set" menu. Harry's menu changes daily. Some meals are more or less set but, their is always a variety of "tasty" plates. Along with a great meal, in the... More

Went for a luncheon. Not impressed. I order roast beef and noodles. The food was nasty! The roast beef was tough. The noodles was like chewing on rubber bands. The vegetables raw and crunchy. The vegetables were suppose to be steamed they were not! The only thing good was the dinner roll. I left 3/4 of the food. It was... More

Food was served cafeteria style and although the portions were plentiful the food was terrible. Turkey dinner was served close to cold, complete with congealed gravy. At least the service was quick.

We recently visited RWC to babysit our 1 and 3 year old grandchildren while their parents were gone. The last night we were there we had very tired kiddos and decided Harry's Hofbrau might work well for a quick but good dinner. We were correct-lots of good food and the kids like it. We were in and out within a... More
