With a name like Little Harry’s, you’d expect a cozy dining room with cheerful servers, incredible food and lively conversation.
That’s exactly what you’ll get at this eatery, a favorite among locals and visitors alike.
Open since 1997, the large and varied menu, extensive wine list and friendly staff have won over guests time and again.
The setting is intimate, with two small dining rooms. (Children are welcome, however, and they even get their own menu.)
Additionally, there is a bar area with high top tables and counter seating. Many of the tables are glass-topped, to display photos of days gone by – of employees, friends and family, or pictures placed by diners themselves.
As our server told us, “If you’re from Rutland, you’ll see someone you know in these pictures.”
Between the tabletops, the quilts hanging on the walls and lace curtains in the windows, you’ll feel as if you’re having dinner at a friend’s home. (Then there’s the soundtrack featuring the best of Fleetwood Mac, Journey and the Eagles, which is basically what we’d play at our own dinner parties.)
The owners of Little Harry’s love to cook – but they also love to eat. You can never trust a chef who doesn’t love eating, so this is a sure sign of a great meal to come.
We chose three menu favorites – the Green Curry Mussels, with just the right amount of spice; a Flank Steak special with caramelized onions; and Garlic Cheese Bread for Two, so good you’ll want it ‘For Ten.’
Look at this spread:
Other menu items include Lobster Stuffed Mushrooms, Ravioli Diablo, Pad Thai, Flauta, Fish and Chips … and then some. There are so many different styles of cuisine to choose from, and you really can’t go wrong.
Not to mention, for food this good, the prices cannot be beat.
The entire menu is available for carry-out … they call it ‘Little Harry’s Carry.’
Dine in to get the full experience. If you love it as much as we do, you’ll want to order take-out another night of your visit.
