“Good food bad service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012 via mobile

Went for a dinner at this restaurant. Had to wait 5 min. To be seated and than 10 min. To be served.we ordered the pizza with shrimps and the wings. It took more than 25 min. For the waitress to bring us the food. Actually there were only 2 waitresses to the whole part of the restaurant we sat in.
The food was great - thin pizza which came hot and tasety. The wings were great. For sure e of the best wings we ever ate. Overall it was great. Too bad the service wasn't that good.

“Wings are over-rated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

I have eaten wings all around the country, and world, and these wings ranked among the worst not the best. I go in open minded each time I try wings at a new establishment. These wings were hard, overcooked and tasteless. On the plus side, the clam strips and chicken strips were terrific. The atmosphere and wait staff were also great.

“Great food! We had the steamers..yummmmm! and the fried clam strips, and the Leo's favorite pizza! Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012 via mobile

Great food! We had the steamers..yummmmm! and the fried clam strips, and the Leo's favorite pizza! Food was great, server was so sweet and working her butt off to keep up with the constant flow of patrons as they are located in the heart of Old Forge. Overall we would recommend the pizza and clams and we will be back again on a visit to the beautiful Adirondaks (one last side note, they have a slight fly problem)

“Good Times”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012 via mobile

First of all, I am not reviewing Tony Harper's in Old Forge. I am reviewing Tony Harper's in Raquette Lake.
My wife and eat there at least once each season. There is an intangible quality that keeps bringing us back.They have good wings and pizza. I would have given them an excellent instead of very good if they still offered Ipswich style belly clams. We were disappointed to see that they no longer serve them. Even so, we had fun. Without the Ipswich clams Tony's is not outstanding, but it is still a good stop.
