Harmon's has been around forever...small inside, with counter seating, but in nicer weather there are lots of picnic tables all around ouside. They have the best hamburgers/cheeseburgers around...a bit on the greasy side, but that's what makes the hamburgers so good...that's what makes it the... read more

Reading the glowing reviews here I went in expecting a lot & I was not disappointed. The hamburgers were tender and tasty, quite different in texture from the chain burgers (which I like too in most cases). The steamed buns were a welcome change from standard grilled versions. The homemade fries and onion rigs were delicious as well. I love... More

Any time my wife and I are near Falmouth at lunchtime, we head for Harmon's, and today was no exception. We love their hamburgers. You can't really compare them with 5 guys or places like that, because the Harmon's version of a burger is completely different. I get the double cheese burger with cooked onions. My wife gets the same,... More

You would pass right by this place! Great burgers and french fries! Been around for along time! It's a nice ride to go there. Service is wonderful, nice clean place and picnic tables outside to eat on.

Truly beg to differ with those saying the quality of burgers served is going downhill. These are still the best tasting burgers around as are the fries. YES, the burgers are quite small and YES, this place is definitely on the expensive side. $7.00 for 2 small burgers and a small coke is high. Toss in a small fry and... More

We make it a point to stop by Harmons Lunch every year we come to Maine and wouldn't miss it for the world! It's a fantastic burger and fries - unlike anything you've had elsewhere! Do yourself a favor and come taste for yourself!

After reviewing the ratngs on Harmon's, we were hesitant of trying the place. Boy am I glad we did. The burgers and fries were very good. Many people complain about the soft buns and tasteless burgers but we found the buns perfect for the tasty burgers. The place is very small but picnic tables are available in back for additional...

yes, it is a landmark and local treasure but the burgers are vile, served on soft little buns....fried on a griddle....at best these are mediocre....go to support a local place but not if you are a burger lover. No ice machine, at least the last time i went, so you stick your glass into a cooler with ice, the occasional... More

Restaurant reviews are inherently subjective. Ask someone where the "best" anything is and you'll most likely get just about as many answers as the people you ask. Having said that, I will not go back to Harmon's. I had what others crow about, the loaded cheeseburger. All I could taste was the VERY sweet relish. The bun was very soft... More
