Half price appertizers!? – Was a good bar to go to after 10pm.. but they don't have the half price appertizer deal anymore. And the waistress is not gonna tell you that while you're ordering.. So if you're planning to go there because of the deal.. FORGET IT! They still have the $2 High Life bottle.
Good, cheap food but not so great service – The food is pretty good -esp the curly fries. Its also very reasonable, I got a burger for less than $6. The waitress wasn't at all attentive and had a lot of attitude.
You HAVE to try it! – I've taken all my visitors to this place. There was one time when we had trouble getting service, but then again that was the last game of the baseball season and the waiter was just as enthused by the game as we were. The other times we've been there we've had great service and great food.
And they do have a few spots to park on the street. There are some right in front and on the side of it, and one side of Warren Street on the other side of the intersection is two hour parking. Not guaranteeing that those spots will be available, though.
BTW, just as a note, this place is not accessible. I've had trouble getting up those steps, and all the seats on the lower level are stools only.
Best local bar for food, drink and good company – My boyfriend and I go to Harry's once a week even if just for dinner b/c it's cheaper than going fod shopping! All of the items on the menu are reasonably priced (most under $10). My favorites include the tacos (comes with a huge plate of rice and beans) and the cobb salad. Yum. THe curly fries are also great. You can get a pitcher of Bud for $10 and all drinks are made great. Great margaritas. It's also a great place to watch sports games on tv. Ryann and George are the best servers there. On a warm night the cafe windows open up making it a great place to sit in the sun with a beer.
Cozy, attitude-free Brighton hangout goes easy on student wallets with cheap billiards and commendable bar food. – The Scene
The only way the vibe could be more comfortable at this split-level pub is if the barstools were replaced with recliners. Patrons at this brick-red watering hole enjoy a low-key atmosphere, conversing amiably at a smattering of tables. Two plasma TVs broadcast sports around the clock, with music played at just the right volume for conversation. The singles scene picks up momentum on weekends, when fresh-faced coeds dominate the crowd.
Harry's peddles drinks and dressed-up bar food at prices that are easy on the wallet, even for the perpetually broke collegiate set. Nothing on the menu ventures above the $11 mark, and this is one of the only neighborhood places where pitchers of beer are encouraged. A pool table dominates the upper level, offering customers an alternative to seated socializing. A grilled tuna steak sandwich, served with homemade chipotle mayo, stands out among the menu's sturdy offerings.
no service? – We walked in on a lazy sunday afternoon, there were 5 people at the bar and nobody at the tables. We received our menus, but the waiter never came back. I asked the bartender where the waiter was, and he said "I am the waiter." I asked if he could take our order when he had the chance. He still elected not to serve us so we left. The prices on the menu were very reasonable.
Good drinks and fun – Harry's is a relaxing place with a friendly staff and clientelle. The draft beer is served in chilled pint glasses and the martinis are a delight. Whether you want to grab a quick dinner with friends, have a few drinks, or play a game or two of pool, Harry's is the place to go. I highly recommend the weekly dinner specials!
