TERRIBLE SERVICE!!!!!! – I've been there twice now. The first time was awesome, but after the treatment I had this evening I definitely won't back! After 20 minutes, I had to go to the bar to get my own water. My margarita sat on the bar that entire time while the ice melted into the drink (we could see it from our table but were unsure if it was ours until we saw our waiter FINALLY grab it and take it to us). My order was wrong and my husband was finished eating before they brought out my correct order. I told the waiter to forget it, but they brought it out anyway. They charged me for it, so I had to put it in a to-go box since we were ready to leave. I've never left a restaurant without eating, especially after driving 35 minutes to get there. They totally ruined our night. I won't be back!!!
Don't listen to "Harrysucks"! – Harry and Peyton have kept this place's spirit, rustic but clean and comfortable look, great classic and new dishes and desserts, fast and good bartenders, warm fires, beflowered patio, and hence the crowds, intact for a long time now (I've been coming since 1993). Tourists and locals are equally welcome, and although I haven't worked there, some of the staff have been there for many years, which suggests that maybe Harry's not so bad!!
Owners unfriendly, food average – I have been going to Harry's on and off for 14 years and the owners have not acknowleged me once. The food is average and very high fat but the deserts are usually worth the visit
Bland, Disappointing – BLAND, disappointing, This is our third time trying Harry's, strike 3 your out! Breakfast was very bland, Ham special was actually seasoned well, but I felt like I was eating beef jerkey. Breakfast potatoes nice portion no seasoning. Service was actually good this time and the manager was receptive to my feedback on the ham. Oh yeah, need to try a new coffee blend.....one word YUCK!
My wife and I stopped there on Sunday and enjoyed a wonderful New Mexican lunch but most of all I enjoyed the the tangy, not too sweet margaritas that "taste like you're drinking something" and the friendly bar maid and bar customers. What a friendly place! It's my favorite place to stop when I'm in that part of santa Fe.
Attitude adjustment needed – This is an average restaurant with an owner who can be rude.....not a good idea, Harry.
I'm a local who ends up here to meet friends on this end of town when I can't persuade them elsewhere.
I think we're all willing to "eat average" but if the staff and owner are indifferent, that's a problem.
Saturday lunch met all our expectations – My husband and I had an excellent lunch at Harry's, June 14th, 2008. We were thoroughly pleased with Harry's. This was my second visit and my husband's first. I had the vegetarian special, which included tomatoes (eeek!) but our great waitress carefully explained their origin and assured us they were not part of the scare.
We enjoyed being seating outside on the back porch, where we had a good view of the delightful patio. Our chatty waitress was attentive and dependable. She must be a favorite, since we heard a couple ask for her as they were seated.
The staff works quickly and efficiently. The food and service met our expectations. We tipped over 20% and were happy to do so.
Harry's daily specials on soup, salad and entrees make the menu even more interesting and there are plenty of unique offerings. The beer list is not too long and is good, including some Mexican choices, which goes over great with my crowd! We will return to Harry's and recommend it without hesitation.
The Great American Neighborhood Restaurant – This isn't the place to go for a gourmet meal, unless you're talking desserts. It's the place to meet friends, have good, hearty food, and enjoy the wait staff. Regulars are cherished, and get more love from the staff when Harry's is their Cheers Bar, but I've almost always found the service to be pleasant, and often friendly, and almost always competent. I've eaten at Harry's off and on for 7 years. You can sit at the counter, like a diner, in the bar (which is a full bar: beer, wine, hard stuff) on stools or at the bar, or in one of the three dining rooms or even outdoors when the weather is nice. Some folks may have had a single bad experience at Harry's and written a scathing review here in revenge. Pfooey: every waiter, every restaurant, will fumble now and then. The line is long during tourist season, but the rest of the year, when there's a line, it's often a good time to meet and chat with strangers. And on Harry's worst day, it's worth coping with some temporary snarliness to get to his wife, Peyton's, pies and other desserts.
Bottom line: if you're looking to put a notch on your Michelin dining belt, there are many better places in Santa Fe to get that done. But if you're looking for dependably good food from a diverse menu, atmosphere, and service and a place for enjoying the company of friends and strangers, Harry's is the Great American Neighborhood Party in a restaurant.
Below Average – The busy parking lot made us hopeful, but once inside the food and the service were both disappointing. All of the dishes were bland.
Long Wait, Poor Service, Cold Food and a Rude Owner – We are locals and have gone to Harry's many times but everytime we go the wait is longer and the last time we went the food was cold and Harry was in a bad mood and was rude to everyone. Not going back.
