“obscenely wonderful”
Reviewed December 9, 2005

Yes the portions are decadently huge, but the quality of the food is superb. Really. Its just amazing becuase usually when a place serves such large portions, its not very good food. Here the food is great and the portions are insane. A sandwhich will definitely feed 2 maybe 3 people. The desserts are equally scrumptious.
And if you notice, the kitchen is open and in full view. Immaculate!

“Amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed August 8, 2005

This place has some of the best food around! And the huge portions are awesome. Don't listen to the people who say it's too much. They just don't understand that everything is for sharing and you don't have to eat it all at once, that's what the doggy bag is for. They also have a great pickle and "extra" bread bar. I love Harold's and you will too. Seriously, how can you beat a 12" tall piece of carrot cake?

“Can't wait for Harolds”
Reviewed August 5, 2005

We are making our annual trip To Harolds from Albany NY ( 3 Hour Drive)
Let us tell you it is worth the trip. The corned beef and/or pastrami melts in your mouth. Also the smoked fish plater is to die for.
