Third time here since moving to town. Food was ok after my order got messed up. The replacement sandwich was tiny compared to the one that was made in error. Confusion seemed to be between cashier and cook over whether orders could be shared verbally or if they had to be written on slips.

This place has been around for decades and serves up a great (one of the best around) roast beef sandwich. I agree with another reviewer, pass on the sides, i.e. fries, pizza roll, cole slaw - etc. They are average or even less than that. I always opt for take-out as the interior of Harrison's hasn't been updated since the... More

Harrison’s is a guy’s place. For as long as I’ve been going to Harrison’s it has been manned by muscle heads that get off on screaming and yelling orders back and forth to each other. They also don’t hesitate to yell at customers if you are not ready to order. Think of the soup nazi from Seinfeld, only in real... More

We travel back to Massachusetts every summer to visit family and Harrison's is one of the first stops I make. The rest of the year, I often find myself craving for one of their roast beef sandwiches. A large, heavy on the sauce with onions is just amazing. I have never found a roast beef sandwich as good as this.

The sandwiches were tasty and the portions were substantial however the kitchen and the dining rooms were disgustingly filthy! Food was all over the floor and countertops of the kitchen. Not a good sign for... More
