I admit it; I am a Trip Advisor checker. So, when I visited Terre Haute for my Mom's birthday, I checked Trip Advisor just for grins. I asked my Mom if she had heard of Harry and Buds. She had not but as I checked out the website, she remembered Jeffrey (owner) from previous restaurants and said that she and my Uncle Fred used to love his Reuben sandwiches. I called and spoke with Jeffrey and although he had not seen my Mom and Uncle in years, he remembered them when I called to make reservations for dinner. This dinner was about my Mom, so I told Jeffrey not to worry about the fact I was vegetarian when we arrived. He had made crab cakes knowing I was from Virginia (he had asked where everyone was from when I made reservations and I immediately wished I had told him I was vegetarian). Although I didn't eat any of the meat (some kind of sirloin beef, lamb chops, crab cakes) my family's response was all I needed to see to know it was delicious. Plate upon plate, all unique and delicious. And, when he found out I was vegetarian when we arrived, he graciously said it was not a big deal to make some of the dishes vegetarian and there were 3 or 4 of the 8 or 9 he served us that I could eat. Best brussels sprouts ever and kale cooked in a way that I left convinced I need to learn to cook kale. Jeffrey was gracious enough to give me some tips on that. Like previous diners, we left with tons of leftovers. Listened to some great music, drank the wine we brought, ate delicious food in a quiet quaint setting where we could hear each other speak. A great night. We were the only 4 there by the way. I would dine there again in a heart beat. This place and the food are a labor of love. You can taste it. Don't go here if you want fast food that you can get anywhere a la Olive Garden. It is unique and you need to go and enjoy the experience.
