We ate dinner here twice during our stay in Ludlow and it was fantastic both times. There's a bit of a wait on busy weekend nights, but it's well worth the wait. And the staff works harder than any I've seen. Start with a great...More

Very nice. Without Harry's the area has been a desert for a good meal. I do love a nice burger sometimes but when you're looking for something original and fresh in a place that doesn't seem like it won't be there next year this has...More

This place is a must if you visit Ludlow. We all loved our meals—Plew farm chicken, rib eye and soft shell crab! Everything was flavorful and perfectly cooked. Cocktails and wine/beer were also excellent. Will certainly visit again when back in the area.

Very cute restaurant, and attentive staff. We found the food to be very bland, a nice piece of fish, and rock shrimp swimming in a bland, watery broth, with teeny pieces of potato and a few peas. The appetizers were good, as were the salads....More

4th year coming here, the staff was busting their ass but had several call outs. They tried their best but we should have probably been informed at the start. 3 hours for a 2-course meal is a bit long
