Been here many times. Can not beat the half off burgers 3-5 weekdays.
the best burgers (in my opinion): pig pile, crunch burger, double wide. also i've gone with people who have enjoyed the turkey burger.
Harry's updates the draft beer menu fairly often and has plenty of drink options.
Also, i strongly recommend the regular fries.

Awesome sliders. Order more than one so you and your friends can mix and match flavors. The hot pastrami is truly amazing. The beer section is varied and changes. They offer something for all tastes so if you love the bitter IPA's, smoky porters, or easy drinking lagers, they got you covered. Prices are fair but come between 4 and 6 for 1/2 priced sliders!!!

This is a restaurant group place with only a few taps with one dedicated to Old Speckled Hen, one of my least favorite beers. Bottle selection appears stagnant. Food is good however. This is not on my radar as a craft beer place.

The burgers (slider-sized, but just a tad larger) are delicious. I highly recommend the Fungus Among Us. Dynamite! The draft selection is limited, but I have no problem with that when the choices are good. Enjoyed me a Little Sumpin' Extra :)

The bottle/can list is larger and has some good local options as well as other things. The place is pretty tight inside so I'm glad I was the only one sitting at the bar.

My wife and I stopped in for a beer while staying downtown. The place is very small and was packed but had a good vibe and some happy people.

The tap list is very limited but solid. We each had Sixpoint Apostle IPAs on cask. They were tasty but the glass size was quite small. The $5.50 price was a little steep given the glass size and it was annoying for them to then tack sales tax on top of that.

There was little room to stand in so we kept it to one beer and moved on. The food that passed by us looked awesome. I plan to get back on a quieter night when I can sit at the bar and enjoy a beer and burger.

Although this place suffers from only having six taps--one of which is permanently devoted to Old Speckled Hen--when you hit it right, your timing is well-rewarded. They tend toward the hoppy IPAs and seem to avoid local brews. Still, with half-priced sliders from 3-5 every weekday, it offsets the high-priced drafts. Worth a visit in a pub crawl or for the aforementioned sliders. Real shuffleboard table in the basement not bad either--and Dario knows his stuff!

I stopped in here while vacationing in New England. I was hoping to grab a burger and a couple beers. I stopped in on a Thursday evening. This place in tiny. There were only a handful of bar stools, and they were full. We sat along the back wall on a couple stools. We got up to order our beers and someone swooped in on our seats. We ended up standing and having a beer. The selection was decent. It had local selections. We never ate since we didn't have a seat. Did I mention this place is tiny? I regret not eating there. The locals raved about the burgers. It was a cool little dive. Just don't expect a seat unless it is off hours.

Dario behind the bar is great. The sliders are a great side dish to the beers. The selection is limited, but good. The bottles are a little stagnant compared to the drafts which are changed out frequently. Neat stuff you don't find everywhere. The fries are awesome and make sure you rub the cow on the way in.

I had heard good things about this place and the other reviews also suggested a solid place.

As expected, the food was good, even better than good. There is a limited menu that focuses on burgers and the burgers do not disapoint. The draft selection was limited, as advertised, 4 drafts and one cask. The selections were good for such a small list - Old Speckled Hen, Widmer Black IPA, Breckenridge Boch, Newport Storm 12, and Gritty Black Fly Stout on cask. The service was pleasant and quick.

Then came the bill and the whole thing changed. $7.00 for a Breckenridge 14 0z draft and get this, $9.50 for a 14 oz cask Gritty. I asked if there was an error as the prices were "silly." No such luck. The response was that these were "expensive" beers.

Buyer beware. Of course, they do not list beer prices. Maybe ownership will reconsider this folly.

Located on the edge of Brown University's campus, the the name of the locale quickly spells out their focus: Harry's Bar & Burger. Their food menu is composed mostly of a melange of burger specialties, with a few other bar food options.

This place stuck out for one main reason: they offer beer boots! 58 ounces of very good beer. After drinking so much of it, I do not even remember what they poured (it's a couple of months after the fact, too). If you're looking for a challenge, grab yourself a boot at this place. Give yourself more than an hour to finish; you'll need it.

The staff was exceptionally friendly.

Went with a few guys after work to have some sliders, a few beers and to play shuffle board. The sliders were great and the sweet potato fries were excellent. They have 4 beers on tap and 1 cask. The bartender wasn't sure what was on cask and thought it had been on for quite a while. They had Mayflower Thanksgiving, Heavy Seas Winter Storm, Old Speckled Hen and one more that slips my mind. I stuck with the Thanksgiving and the Winter Storm because they were just tapped this week.

They seem to rotate their taps quite frequently evidenced by all the tap handles on display around the bar and the first floor dining room.

We will definitely be back for some end of the work day beers and burgers.

burgers, good beer and not much else but really do you need more?
they have hot dogs as well as chili etc but that's about it except for some kick ass burgers which they serve as 2 sliders.
The beer list is pretty awesome for such a small place 5 on tap which they are quick to let you sample plus another 50+ bottles along with a great friendly staff.
Only bad part is a very small bar which fills up fast but they do have dinning in back as well as up stairs and lets not forget shuffle board down stairs!!!
