We visited Harry's at 9pm on a weeknight and it was very busy for a little restaurant. I had the corned beef Rachel and it was delicious. It was a open face sandwich. My husband had the fried seafood platter. It was good but too much fried food for him. Overall all I would recommend Harry's. I wish we had... More

Great menu, friendly service and yummy comfort food makes Harry's a must when in Westborough. The corn chowder and the onion rings are personal favorites. This is a weekly stop for us due to the all around consistency of great food and great service. Just be advised, it's a cash only establishment.

A great little restaurant. It's not fancy. But, it's clean, convenient, and offers great food - especially seafood, deli style sandwiches, and a wide selection of delicious homemade pies.

So I was in Massachusetts and had a hankering for fried clams - they were a childhood favorite and I hadn't had any GOOD ones in quite a while. Harry's advertises (it's permanent on their sign, mind you) that they have them, so I had to stop in a give them a try. I ordered a clam (with the bellies... More

It's part of the reason I keep coming back. This place reminds you of your youth, of the simpleness of the past... before things got so fancy and high tech. Enjoyed the matzo ball soup (always) and a Rachel sandwich. Always friendly service.

Have driven by this place countless times on my way to business meetings or other social events in nearby Worcester and always opted for lunch in Worcester. Today deviated from the norm, and was immediately transported back in time to a SIMPLE diner with the smell of great fried food wafting in the background - I was hooked. For an... More

We like this little spot because it's remained itself for the past 70 years! One of the only area spots for matzo ball soup. Everything is worth trying, varied menu. Old time waitresses that are friendly and aim to please. Loved the matzo ball soup, lobster rolls, cole slaw. A real blast from the past. Remember, Cash Only

We asked at our hotel for a recommendation for a good place to eat and the girl at the front desk told us that "a lot of people really like Harry's", we checked out some reviews and it looked like a place we would enjoy. We are so tired of chain restaurants and really like to try independent places when... More

This is not your "fancy night out on the town with your date" place! What it is best at is good, fresh deep fried seafood. I've never had anything that tasted even slightly old. Quahogs are wonderful and clams are the best in the area. Be prepared to battle the crowds on a weekend. This is the sort of place... More

Welcome to Harry's Restaurant, family owned and operated for two generations. A roadside diner serving some of the best fried clams in Metrowest. Harry's, known as a route 9 hangout, has been around since 1946. The decor is vinyl galore, but you can expect some of the freshest home cooking anywhere around. Stop by and enjoy our menu full of classic American home style dishes. Sure, we get a bit fancy here and there, but only to make the food taste extra special. After all, down home doesn't mean down scale. Harry's " one of the few places serving dinner past midnight " bills itself as "the place for fried clams," and the claim's legit. The clams (both with bellies and the sacrilegious strips) are tender.
