Met my son and daughter-in-law in Lafayette for lunch. Both the them are Purdue alumni and insisted on going to Harry's. We had the chicken fries which were great! Never had these before. The pizza's are also very good. Happy they have Guinness on tap. Brought back lots of memories.

I've never had trouble getting into Harry's, except for when I went with my brown friend's. Upon being denied, I asked why. The bouncer said it was "too late". It was midnight. I've never had any issue going out to the bars with friend's of different races except here. This is not okay.

Lots of history in this corner bar but I was not impressed. I wanted to try the bar favorite buffalo sauce but did not feel I got what I ordered. There was no effort to make sure I was happy... Not the best dinner experience. Too many good restaurants to chose from. Won't be back.

By far one of the very best bars/pubs I've ever been in- the place is an institution and a rite of passage-great drinks- they pour a good one and basic pub food- very old, historic- maybe a little dumpy but oh so fun !

Friendly, helpful servers and the best wings I've ever had! Skip the quesadilla and go for a double order of wings!

Best bar on Purdue's campus in my opinion. They play the best music a mix of everything but of course the best classics that are out there.

If you're a fan of fried pickles try the fried banana peppers! Like a fried pickle but with a little kick.

If in need of a relaxing cold beer or prepared drinks, this is the spot in west Lafayette. The most I liked was the music in a smooth talkable volume. In 2019 will be the 100 years anniversary.

I guess it is a tradition to eat and drink here. I understand that and if you want to connect to the last 100 years of students who have eaten here ok go for it. Not my first choice for stale (in terms of trends not freshness) food. Not my second choice. In fact bottom 10 %. The food is... More

First of all, there are no chocolates at Harry's Chocolate Shop . . . it is a charming, historic, hole in the wall campus bar. Students have apparently been carving their names & initials in the wooden booths for ages. We just had drinks and popcorn so can't speak to food, but service was friendly and efficient, and we thought... More
