This place is an icon in the area, as well as the state. The portions are set to feed multiple people so don't let the prices scare you away. Seating is ample and service is OK. Good for the food, that's what matters here.

We live about ten minutes away and come here a few times a year. The food is good and the food is HUGE. One sandwich feeds 5 of us. There are no free refills on the soda which is a bummer but the sodas are also huge so you shouldn't really need a refill. We always end up bringing food... More

Very friendly, courteous staff....but the food.....WOW. The menu selections are so numerous, from hot to cold food. We had the Harold's Cobb salad for 2, but it was large enough for 3 or 4 people. The quality of the food was outstanding. Everything was so fresh!! WE LOVED the pickle bar. We are huge pickle fans, but I fell in... More

After trying to ignore the siren call of NYC Jewish deli I was pulled to Harold's. The closing of Carnegie Deli strengthened the call until I could not withstand it any longer. My wife had the cheese blintzes and they exceeded all expectations. Much better than Carnegie and almost exceeded my mother and grandmother's. The pickle bar concept was much... More

We were at an event nearby and on our way home, wanted to grab some lunch. Saw a sign for Harolds and decided to give it a try. When we got to the parking lot, we realized the restaurant was adjacent to a hotel, but what the heck, we were hungry, let's try it. After being quickly seated, drink orders... More

This is the place! They serve enourmous size dishes and they are quite yummy. We went as a large group of friends and had chocolate and blueberry pancakes (fluffy!), pastrami omelette, corned beef sandwich with delisious cole slow, salted salmon plate with bagels, homestyle fried potatoes, potato pancake (not the best), ice cream for kids and a slice of cake....

We love to come here, especially for special occasions. One sandwich makes 4-5 sandwiches. Chicken soup with matzoh balls is enough to swim in. It is one of the best soups because it was not very salty.

Humongous is the theme at Harolds. We usually order one sandwich for eight people. Great quality tasty food, the real deal. The desert is just as humongous and delicious as the main course. Highly recommended
