I got the chicken & bacon salad – OMG, so yummy! Once again great value for money, huge portions so great for guys too. Staff were so helpful & attentive & the whole experience was great. Would definately come again & recommend to all. Thanks guys!
The price is great and the quality is good. The meals are large and there is often no room for dessert even though the desserts are great especially when they have the sticky date pudding on the specials menu.
I have only ever had one displeasing experience when they mucked up the changes to my meal. I told the waitress and another waitress when I went to pay however no apologies, discounts or offer to give me my drink for free was made. A little disappointing but I continue to go back.
Have had no problems since then.
Very easy to book, reasonable prices.
Our only complaints were they got confused over who had appetizers and didn’t give the main meal to the whole table at once. My partner and I didn’t have an appetizer, but the rest of the table was almost finished their meals by the time we received ours.
We waited for someone to take dessert orders, some people went to the counter to order theirs, I went up and asked for the dessert menu and for someone to take the order, but 10 minutes later had to go back to order.
I had the steak and chips – The only good thing about it was that it was cooked the way I wanted it which was Medium Rare, so points for that. The only thing was – it wasn’t like a big hunk of steak that you’d expect from somewhere like the Speights Ale House. It was more like Schnitzel – very thin and rubbery like. I chose Mushroom Sauce as my dressing, and it was okay, I wouldn’t say it was the best. The chips were more like Fries which was disappointing.
I also had a desert which was the Cheesecake of the Day – White chocolate cheesecake with Raspberry Sauce. The Raspberry sauce definitely tasted store brought (probably from the countdown across the road) and I couldn’t taste any White Chocolate in the cheesecake.
V. Disappointing, and felt guilty as it was expensive and I wasn’t the one paying for my meal.
As it was my birthday – what a huge disappointment of the Chicken stuffed with Bacon, Brie Cheese (or the lack of it) and Red pepper skins with the most horrific disgusting Garlic sauce, made from a catering jar of processed crushed garlic I’m guessing coming almost straight from the jar with some water added to it to attempt to thin down the processed garlic.
Then smeared over my chicken breasts.
As I have worked in the chef industry for many years, I know that garlic taste from processed catering jars anywhere.
Not to mention the completely over cooked blacken roast potatoes with the side salad, which I wouldn’t even feed it to my dog as supper!
It was not worth the $29 price tag, and I refused to pay for this meal, after complaining to the kitchen staff of the very poor quality.
Word of mouth gets around Dunedin very quickly – so I won’t be going back there to fat harry’s for family dining again.
Their standard of food has been on a backward slider for some time.
From a very annoyed ex customer and family.
The children’s play area was good with a variety of books, puzzles, and toys, as well as three playstations (although only one was working the night we went). The play area is a separate room with a glass wall so you can keep an eye on the kids without having to hear them.
The kids had a ball, but the adults were under-impressed.
