The service was wonderful. You would never know the waitstaff has more then one table - drinks, food, everything came out very quickly. Our family of 6 as a whole ordered: 1 sandwich (1/2 corned beef 1/2 pastrami), 1 knish, 1 potato pancake, and 1 order of blintzes. To give you an idea of how big the portions, we took... More

Gigantic everything, not just the sandwiches. Best pastrami and corned beef anywhere, large pickle bar, they bake their own Rye bread and they encourage sharing. Prices are cheap when you see the amount of food you are getting. And of course, there's Harold himself, he's an institution, very friendly and hospitable.

Great service and great food. This restaurant is definitely worth the trip. One thing to consider is one sandwich can feed 1-3 people. Keep this in mind when ordering. One piece of cake can feed an army. So enjoy the restaurant and get ready for leftovers.

We always start with the Salad Bar, with its Health Salad, variety of Pickles, and after 5 PM these great miniature muffins that are flavorful and addictive. Then we order The Pastrami Sandwich. The best Pastrami I have found in NJ, and a match for any Pastrami in Manhattan, and the coleslaw that comes with it is also first rate.... More

Here for the weekend stopped in at Harolds. We were a group of 8 we ordered large corned beef and pastrami and couple of orders of fries and onion rings. Plenty of food. Service was great and the server helped us navigate the huge menu. Will definitely go back.

It rivals Carnegie & Katz' in NYC. You're guaranteed to take home a tray of meat and a loaf of bread! There pickle bar is quite extensive, & you can fill up on that alone. A triple decker can feed a family of 6-8 with leftovers.

Little pricey, waiter was very patient as 2 of our group where a little late in arriving. Should have free soda refills, full charge for refills "COME ON NOW" !!!! Pannini special was nice surprise, but no lettuce or tomato or ask if want cheese on roast beef.

What can I say. Big portions (even the lunch menu of small wraps or Paninis) of really good deli. Don't miss the Salad bar available to all. Go around 4:15 so you can still be there when they bring out the Muffins and Buns promptly at 5:00. If you order off the regular menu. Be prepared to share. A sandwich... More
