After attending a fishing show in Someret NJ, we stopped at Harold's for their pastrami sandwich....great. We asked the waiter for "a little juicy" in which the fat makes the sandwich more moist. The salad bar, sandwich, and huge drink filled us up for the long ride south on the NJ Turnpike. For 2018, the fishing show is headed for... More

Harold's is an experience meant to be shared by many. The deli meats are good but you really are going for the wow effect due to the size of the sandwiches. The restaurant provides extra bread for sharing. Have fun & enjoy!

So why is Harold's a Must Visit?? Because they specialize in serving HUGE portions of whatever you order. Sandwiches that feed 3-5 people, desserts that feed 6, sides that overwhelm the table! Definitely a fun place to go eat just to experience the GARGANTUAN portions. And how's the food? It's good deli style food. Not great, but good. Strongly recommend... More

Always to much to eat at one sitting. And be careful Harold is always around. If he hears you having a good time he'll send you a piece of monster cake. Thanks Harold for the cheesecake 😛

I love Harolds and the food is always guaranteed to be delicious and in big portions. However, on a busy night they decided to put a make-shift table of 2 next to our table of 4 and it was VERY uncomfortable to have strangers sit next to each other and eat and hear conversations. It's one thing if the table... More

We were lucky enough to be taken here by a friend on our visit to NYC...we were amazed at the size of the portions, we ordered two lots of meat, onion rings and fries and although there were six of us, we took away a large doggy bag!! The onion rings were like tyres!!! We really enjoyed the atmosphere and... More

I was told to be ready to eat a lot and to be treated to the most amazing brisket of beef!! It was out of this world!! Absolutly insane the amount of food or portions for some that like that term better...you won't leave there hungry!! Go once and you'll find yourself going again to try another NY tradional meal!!

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
