Not the nicest looking place and not very nice inside, but it’s cheap and ideal for large group visits. Meals are served buffet style and the food isn’t great quality but you can obviously eat as much as you want.

We ate here and had the buffet--it was reasonably priced at 11.95 but lacking in selections. The waitstaff ladies were very friendly and helpful. The man we checked out with at the counter, however, lacked manners and was blatantly rude to his own staff. Not...More

Horrifyingly bad place. We were "recommended" this restaurant for a cheaper breakfast by the concierge at the Hyatt. You get what you pay for. Bad/cold food on the buffet. Awful room with terribly bad decor (if you can call it that). Terrible service and slow...More

Harriet's is an unsung hero of family dining. Large portions of delicious food are served in a casual diner-style restaurant. Located in the center of downtown, convenient to visitors and workers alike.

When they ran out of pancakes, I was allowed to pick another breakfast item that I was not charged extra for, which was very kind of them in my opinion. I did get my pancakes the next day, but they were a bit dry.

Service very, very bad. We only ate breakfast. There is a buffet that is not very good. Breakfast menu expensive.

Can't believe this place is still in business. A breakfast bagel is the size of a mini-donut and the cream cheese is pre-measured into a plastic cup. There were about 6 people standing around and we still had to wait for water. The night we...More

Let's start with the positive points about the restaurant....the bread is fresh and the birds like the crumbs. The waitresses don't like their job. That alone causes ruins the entire experience. They don't even believe in their product. The restaurant has so much potential, excellent...More
