If in need of a relaxing cold beer or prepared drinks, this is the spot in west Lafayette. The most I liked was the music in a smooth talkable volume. In 2019 will be the 100 years anniversary.

I guess it is a tradition to eat and drink here. I understand that and if you want to connect to the last 100 years of students who have eaten here ok go for it. Not my first choice for stale (in terms of trends not freshness) food. Not my second choice. In fact bottom 10 %. The food is... More

First of all, there are no chocolates at Harry's Chocolate Shop . . . it is a charming, historic, hole in the wall campus bar. Students have apparently been carving their names & initials in the wooden booths for ages. We just had drinks and popcorn so can't speak to food, but service was friendly and efficient, and we thought... More

Spent 4 years of my life drinking at Harry's many years ago. I have one thing to say about James K.'s review. Well, not the review itself, rather the fact that a senior at Purdue should be able to spell correctly and use proper grammar. Never mind that anyone who can make it through 4 years on campus and never... More

I went to Harry's chocolate shop on 04/20/16 with my girlfriend just to get a couple of drinks. Prior to this date I've never been to HCS, though I am a senior at Purdue and will be graduating this year so I decided that since it is such a Purdue tradition I would at least go once. Upon walking into... More

Harry's is an authentic, old style, campus bar. There is all type of knick-knacks, posters, and antique fixtures throughout. Overtime I looked, I saw something different. I just went for some drinks, but they do have a menu. Can only imagine this place on a football game day.

Classic old hangout. Service good. Beer cold. Classic old school inside. I would return. Probably higher reviews from Purdue grads and current srudents. But hey, be proud of your school and its places.

With a nice decoration and music, this place is never empty, there are always couples, group of friends, all kinds of visits! The drinks aren't very expensive, and even if you thought they were, you get free popcorn! It couldn't be more amazing! For sure, I can't wait to go back!

This place is famous around Purdue, and is generally packed to the gills on weekends. From an ambience perspective, it makes sense, but I cannot understand why beyond that. Compared to the other college bars in the area, Harrys has the fewest drink specials, making it a bit more expensive. You would expect the drinks to be better then, but... More

Stopped here to watch NFL playoff game on a Saturday afternoon and came back later in the night. definitely a college bar at night but during the day had good chicken wings, wasn't crazy about the sauce but each to his own. I do recommend the homemade chips though. excellent.... More
