This is one of places that I have nothing but fond memories about. It is a great bar to visit with friends. It is a Purdue classic.

It's a college bar that has been there forever. It has a special place in the hearts of Purdue grads. But to give it a true restaurant review; it is average. The food is OK but nothing special. If you go at night it is too busy to enjoy a meal. At night it is a college bar. Go Boilers.

I have been to Harry's several times and have yet to eat anything other than the popcorn. (very good). Yes, the place is old and somewhat worn,(understatement), but frankly, that is how I remember the college bars of my day. I call it character. And, the drinks are cheap and served by some friendly bartenders and servers.

I kept hearing from all my friends that I just HAD to check this place out. It always looked packed at night so I decided to go for lunch. I had the fish and chips and it was alright. Nothing really memorable about it.

Harry's is a true classic. Great venue, great food and great beverages. The place is dripping with nostalgia. An all time favorite of mine.

A nice, local Purdue bar that offers fresh and free popcorn and many different types of beer -- with most of them served in a plastic cup. Gets all kinds in the doors - from the 21 year old drunken college girls to the middle aged professorial types.

A chocolate shop in the middle of corn country, really? I don't know, (NOR do i wish to) know if Monsanto has made round-up ready coco plants, but anyone in Nucky Thompson's day in Corn Country knew where to pull in for the night. Now you do too! An old bar with a 20's attempt, the site of the old... More

So maybe my opinion is biased but I loved it. They are the icon of Purdue in my opinion. I loved the nachos when we went there, I was younger so that's the only thing I can remember ordering but it was a wonderful atmosphere.

Harry's is THE place where everyone goes for breakfast club, after the games, etc. The food and drinks are okay as long as you don't have really high expectations. Although it's on street level, I've heard someone call it a "rathskeller" to make it sound better?? Others just call it a hole in the wall...Perhaps thousands of alumni can't be... More

Filthiest bar I have been in ever! (I have been in bars all around the world!) It was packed though, and Purdue alum seem to love to flock there. I am not one of them. Bathrooms filthy; floors, tables, counters, all disgusting. Drinks are a little over-priced, the staff is attentive and friendly.
