Some of the best corn beef and pastrami you will ever have. Sandwiches are huge! Each one servers 2-3 people, and the deserts are just as big. Service is not overly friendly, but they were very busy at lunch time.

Been going to Harolds for years now, mostly when we are in the area and I have a taste for Pastrami, Portions are Huge!! Food is good order the Pastrami juicy or else to me it is too dry, everything is good not great but good, desserts however are just blah! Bland no matter how big a slice of cake is or an Eclair you still need Taste. I never have desserts there just very bland and tasteless. Don't know why when you take out they give you barely just enough bread and Pickles but if you eat there you can go up to the pickle bar as many times as you want.

A business friend from CA asked if there was a classic NY deli in central NJ, making Harold's the obvious choice to get great classic deli food and give him an experience to remember. He had to stop laughing at the monster portions to start eating, but enjoyed the corned beef stacked 10 inches high. Dr.Brown's Cream soda and a side of fries made the lunch. He had never seen a pickle bar before and needed coaching for the slaw, pickles, breads, etc.. Outstanding food, served promptly by a long term wait staff that helps keep you from over-ordering. Weekends are nuts. If you can fit a dessert, try to look for the cakes near the entrance....my guest stood by the refrigerated case for a photo to show the cakes were the size of his torso. Memorable. Expensive. Filling.

A not your ordinary deli/restaurant that serves huge portions of deli meat piled high on sliced bread. Check out the cakes upon entering, they look like they were injected with silicone!
We ordered the corned beef/pastrami combo for 4-6 people, and it was plenty of food for three of us. We all got leftovers to take home. Food quality excellent, mustard, pickle bar, bread, drinks, everything excellent. Our server was very familiar with the size of the meals,and which would be best for us.
bring your appetite.
definitely plan on going back with a large group.
