We had four generations that went out to eat dinner. There was plenty of room for all of us to sit together. The friendly staff pushed tables together for us. It is buffet style, where you walk down the line with a tray, tell the server what you want and they cut the meat fresh for you. There is a... More

Drive up and you'll see a turkey suspended in air and roasting in the window. Harry's is a favorite Hofbrau. If you want a sandwich hot, or cold you can order turkey, roast beef, corned beef, or pastrami. Or you can order hot plate. They also offer specials like pot roast, turkey leg, rotisserie chicken. My favorite side salad is... More

If you aren't a big eater, sorry this is not the place for you! However, the food is EXCELLENT. I had the roast beef and mashed potatoes, which was AWESOME! I always enjoy going in this place, I am sure you will also.

Like most hof bras the food is starchy, but it is very filling. Always a wide selection to choose from. Not cheap but good.

Your typical old school hofbrau! Sliced turkey, beef, pastrami, meatloaf, roasted chicken, etc.!! Always good quality but can be expensive. Quick way to get some good food. Big dining room and big bar with lots of beer on tap. The back dining room includes tv's to watch sports while you are eating. The food is always good and consistent.

I have to confess that this is not my kind of food. Meat and potatoes has not really been my thing for some time so my review is not necessarily reflective of what others who like this sort of place might think. I was driving and looking for something close with high ratings. I came here without really delving into... More

Went to Harry's to grab a late-night take-out dinner earlier this week (I appreciate the fact they stay open later than most places). The carver seemed a little grumpy on this particular evening. The young lady who packaged my meal and rang it up on the other hand was especially pleasant and cheerful. I had a turkey dinner with stuffing,... More

It's actually been about 4-5 years. Tried it 3-4 times, giving them benefit of chanced improvement, but they haven't changed. It works for their clientele (those wanting inexpensive, lots of it, fast, pick and choose) and don't mind the dried out, overcooked, due to sitting under heat lamps. Cooked Veggies are the frozen or canned variety, limp and nutrition-less. Salads... More
