You will be scolded! This place is a hoot, not the place for a prolonged dining experience. Check it out, you'll catch on real fast that you order, eat, and be on your way. Had several breakfasts there, lunch begins at 11AM. Food was excellent!

Sit at the counter (like you had a choice), close your eyes, listen, you will hear the chatter of the work crew, the sounds of the cooking - because it is all there in front of your eyes, on the grill ...just like the silver car diners (albeit minus the silver car). Boston memorabilia abounds, overkill, but the food is tasty, hot, fresh and plentiful. A bit of an attitude here, but interesting.

Harolds is one of the iconic dinners They serve great breakfasts and breakfast sandwiches. The cheeseburgers are the best on the island. Chuck gets a little sarcastic, but he enjoys the repartee. The place is kind of a dump by some standards, but that is part of the charm Cash only, no plastic, read the rules, and you will be fine.

Much more than just breakfast & lunch. An opportunity to be insulted by the staff for a number of reasons, like forgetting to put your name on your order slip. Breakfast was tasty and the help was sassy. Price was way cheap for Hilton Head. Tasty tasty tasty breakfast.

No Harold and below average food so not too impressed. Definitely a cool little dive but the difference from a good dive is the food wasn't that great. Yeah it was a little dirty and cramped but that is part of the experience as long as you get good food. Our experience didn't have that unfortunately. Went for breakfast and toast not toasted, cooks attempt to butter the toast missed the toast and left it on the eggs, potatos too hard to eat and coffee too watered down.
