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

Spent 4 years of my life drinking at Harry's many years ago. I have one thing to say about James K.'s review. Well, not the review itself, rather the fact that a senior at Purdue should be able to spell correctly and use proper grammar. Never mind that anyone who can make it through 4 years on campus and never... More

I went to Harry's chocolate shop on 04/20/16 with my girlfriend just to get a couple of drinks. Prior to this date I've never been to HCS, though I am a senior at Purdue and will be graduating this year so I decided that since it is such a Purdue tradition I would at least go once. Upon walking into... More

Harry's is an authentic, old style, campus bar. There is all type of knick-knacks, posters, and antique fixtures throughout. Overtime I looked, I saw something different. I just went for some drinks, but they do have a menu. Can only imagine this place on a football game day.
