Traveling through the area and not much for the gambling scene and tired. We wanted a place close by and quiet. Found this little gem! Very friendly service by everyone. Our server was pleasant and made sure we were taken care of. The sirloin meatball special appetizer was wonderful. Both our steaks cooked perfectly. Very comfortable atmosphere.

Nice elegant but casual linen tablecloth dining. Appears to be a local favorite. Rich Caesar salad. Excellent steaks. Attentive and friendly service.

We've never had a bad experience at Harlequin. During our last visit we had about a 10min wait before being seated & Nic personally served our drinks while we waited in the lobby. Btw, Nic is the owner! You won't get that type of service everywhere you go.

Veggie options were sparse. I chose 3 sides to make a meal. This usually works at other places. Portions were miniscule.

Family-owned with a warm, welcoming atmosphere, Harlequin enjoys a broad local following. My evening was most enjoyable thanks to good service. My jumbo shrimp cocktail was tasty, but misleadingly named. I really was surprised that it was my appetizer when I saw these six small shrimp arriving. My side salad was OK, but nothing to look forward to. My filet,... More

The Harlequin is a local treasure. The steak and baked potato dinner is super. When you add the amazing salad with the house bleu cheese dressing, it is even better. The kibbee appetizer is also wonderful !

While in town visiting my father he took me here. Said it was one of his favorite places. The service was great, the food was great. A little pricey but worth it.

I've always heard about the harlequin for steaks so finally we decided to give them a try. Early on Saturday evening we arrived and were warmly greeted by the host and promptly seated . Our waiter was prompt and polite. We started with the baked stuffed mushrooms , they were perfect. Then came the salads. It amazes me how a... More

How special to be at this restaurant for Mother's Day. The atmosphere is so warm and unique and the food superior to none.
