Given the reputation of Harold's and our son lives in Pittsburgh and this is a Steeler's bar, we stopped in for happy hour. Even early there was a good crowd and it was getting busier the longer we stayed. Planning to go elsewhere for dinner...More

The ribs were hard and overcooked. The meatball sandwich was adequate. Service was okay and the manager gave us a discount on the ribs. Place is loud and would be great for Steelers games on Sundays.

This place has some of the best fried chicken in the west! But, the menu is broad and every item is delicious. The atmosphere is decidedly western but come as your are! Fantastic food and drink.

We went to have a few drinks, people watch and listen to music. We ended up having appetizer and staying for a long time. It's a fun place to go hang out and for sure meet people.

Love visiting Cave Creek. Needed a place for after golf grub. This was a good dive place, met our needs for hungry golfers. We were there between lunch and dinner so not too crowded, but sure do hear how busy it gets on the weekends....More

Description
In the 1930s, a man with the unlikely name of Johnny Walker built a bar called the Cave Creek Corral. Walker’s creation was an instant sensation with cowboys, playboys, politicians and laborers who gathered to drink A-1 beers at wooden tables under wanted posters.Harold Gavagan and his wife Ruth bought the Cave Creek Corral in the mid 1950s. Harold was quite a character, a depression-era Irish kid, a tough, but entertaining guy. Harold’s was a favorite movie location for Hollywood, attracting the likes of Dan Aykroyd, Bob Hope, Lynda Carter, Waylon Jennings and Dick Van Dyke. Cave Creek was not a short easy ride from Phoenix, in an effort to get visitors to Cave Creek, Harold acquired a trained lion and tiger act to entertain patrons.Once visitors were at Harold’s, he was concerned that they didn’t drink and stay long enough. So the building to the east of the restaurant became a bunkhouse, renting space for over night visitors.celebrities. Enjoy the fun atmosphere, interesting people and great food every day. We feature live country and western music Thursday-Sunday nights.Take a few minutes to browse the photographs on the walls of the characters and friends that frequent Harold’s. Our Cowboy, Sunset and Patio Rooms are perfect for your next event. Weddings  Divorces  Anniversaries  Affairs Receptions  Meetings  BirthdaysHost your next party with us or we will be happy to deliver the party to you.
