Have driven by this place countless times on my way to business meetings or other social events in nearby Worcester and always opted for lunch in Worcester. Today deviated from the norm, and was immediately transported back in time to a SIMPLE diner with the smell of great fried food wafting in the background - I was hooked. For an... More

We like this little spot because it's remained itself for the past 70 years! One of the only area spots for matzo ball soup. Everything is worth trying, varied menu. Old time waitresses that are friendly and aim to please. Loved the matzo ball soup, lobster rolls, cole slaw. A real blast from the past. Remember, Cash Only

We asked at our hotel for a recommendation for a good place to eat and the girl at the front desk told us that "a lot of people really like Harry's", we checked out some reviews and it looked like a place we would enjoy. We are so tired of chain restaurants and really like to try independent places when... More

This is not your "fancy night out on the town with your date" place! What it is best at is good, fresh deep fried seafood. I've never had anything that tasted even slightly old. Quahogs are wonderful and clams are the best in the area. Be prepared to battle the crowds on a weekend. This is the sort of place... More

We have been here many times and it never dissapoints. They have fantastic clam chowder and lobster bisque. This visit we had wonderful big belly fried clams. These clams are some of the best anywhere. They are crispy and hot. They give you tatar sauce but ask for more. Its great. Upgrading to onion rings is a must. It costs... More

We live on Cape Cod and frequently have visitors ask us where to get the best fried clams and fish and chips. We consistently tell them to go back over the bridge and drive to Harry's in Westborough. There just isn't a local place on the Cape that is as good as Harry's. Fish and clams are lightly battered, little... More

If you're looking for fancy and fast this isn't the place for you. If you're looking for good food, cheerful staff (regardless of how busy it is and how impatient some people can be) then this IS the place for you! The portions sizes are generous and the prices are decent. We've been going here for years and make a... More

Arrived at 2pm, quiet. All the servers were very attentive. Husband ordered broiled haddock which was a good size piece with coleslaw and onion rings. Hot and fresh and plenty of it. The turkey Rachael was very good. They now have a liquor license. Fun spot to drop into.

Went on weekday for lunch around 11:15 and no wait. Go later or for dinner and count on a wait- especially during Lent! Tiny, diner style. Quick service once seated. Clams are delicious and piping hot, but not cheap. Cash only. ( they have ATM)

Welcome to Harry's Restaurant, family owned and operated for two generations. A roadside diner serving some of the best fried clams in Metrowest. Harry's, known as a route 9 hangout, has been around since 1946. The decor is vinyl galore, but you can expect some of the freshest home cooking anywhere around. Stop by and enjoy our menu full of classic American home style dishes. Sure, we get a bit fancy here and there, but only to make the food taste extra special. After all, down home doesn't mean down scale. Harry's " one of the few places serving dinner past midnight " bills itself as "the place for fried clams," and the claim's legit. The clams (both with bellies and the sacrilegious strips) are tender.
