This is a nice, quiet bar. There's always the small group of repeat customers on the weekdays and it gets a little busy on the weekends. The food is good and the drinks are reasonably priced. If you want a nice getaway without the loud and immature bar scene, this is the place for you! It has become one of my favorite spots since I moved to Cary. It fits right in with the atmosphere of Cary...

They have taken off everything enjoyable from the food menu and the beer menu. The service is terrible.

Pros: Good burgers

Cons: The staff seems to be 'between meds'

.

I've had more than one really bad experience at this bar, and I now avoid going there pretty much altogether. This place used to be great, but in the past few years the overall quality has gone down. I don't ask for much as far as 'friendliness' in my servers, but I work in customer service and expect for my order to be taken in the first twenty minutes that I'm there and without an attitude. More than once this has not been the case at Harrison's. I've had two or three DIFFERENT waitresses act as though I'm bothering them with my patronage. After the food is delivered, they disappear, even if there are no drinks on the table. They take fifteen minutes to get your drinks after you've finally flagged them down and you have to hunt them in the same way in order to pay your check! It would be hard to put up with this for some really good food, but it has gone down in quality as well as the service. If you're going just for drinks and don't mind being treated like crap, this is the place for you.

Pros: Two seconds from my house

Cons: Poor service (attitude and promptness), food

We used to go to Harrison's with our friends weekly, the food was great (loved the ribeye sandwich with parmesan encrusted tomatos, no longer on the menu) and the service was friendly and decent... NOT ANYMORE! I don't know if they have had a change in management (I have never seen the manager there) and we rarely see the same waitress... even though were there weekly no one ever knew or remembered us. I don't know exactly when the change took place, but I would say in the last 18 months to 2 years. There is no attention to detail with the food anymore, the burgers are still good, but whoever is cooking them doesn't know how to hit the temperature you ordered. We have been testing out new Pubs to go too... we have tried Spirits and Wild Wings and Rings so far... may try that new place on Harrison Blvd where Terroro's used to be... but there is no pleasure in going to Harrison's anymore. The last time we were there we had a friend call and have us order her food for her... she didn't show up for 30 minutes and the food didn't come out until a good 10 or 15 minutes after she got there. Another friend had to go inside to find his waitress and get his credit card back... getting a beer on the patio is absolutely impossilbe, and I have never had a manager come by and check on us... it is unfortunate, the food and service used to be great and the only thing I had to complain about was the cell phone coverage inside! Now they have lost anywhere from 8-10 regulars who came every week. I wish this bar would improve because their location is perfect for us. The only reason I am even giving them one star is because the critique requires it! I hope someone reads this and makes the changes necessary to bring the old Harrison's back.

Pros: Close to home

Cons: Service and food

a big group of us went to this place a few nights ago and asked one of the asian girls in our group and two of the african american boys in our group to leave. i couldn't believe it. it was clearly obvious that it was for racial reasons. i will never go back to this place again and do not recommend anyone to.

I have been going to Harrison??s for several years now and I have always found it to be a great place to unwind when downing a nice cold beer. They have a great beer selection and the staff is friendly and accommodating. The establishment balances a nice ??Cheers? like atmosphere with a non-smoking family dining side and has a varied ??Americana? flavored menu which always pleases the hungry customer. The most ingratiating part of Harrison??s though has always been the friendly and reliable service epitomized by people such as Kevin, Susan, Jenn, and Taylor. Not only have they set a high standard of excellence, but the constant stream of repeat clientele speaks volumes of the unique character of this establishment, and the meritorious service of the employees to see that each and every customer is taken care of and has a positive dining and/or festive experience.

This was my favorite bar when I lived in that area. I would still drive over there (I am near Chapel Hill now) if a friend wanted to meet there. It's a great bar, the food is actually really good and reasonably priced (awesome bacon cheese fries and ribeye steak), and it's pretty laid back. Great place to grab a beer.

This is definitely one of the nicer bars that I have been in. They have geared themselves towards the working adult and play up to our likes! It is nice to have a bar that is not bombarded by college kids. Drink prices are comparable but the waitresses tend to be on the slow side. The outside seating that they have added is perfect for those nice summer nights.

Close to the train station and just below the topless bar. Parking is a real pain the behind unless you park across the street at the train station and walk over. Never seen anything too interesting here, but I hear they have good food.

I have been going to harrisons for a long time. It is a great place to hang out with my friends. They have just about everything you can think of, from pool tables, ntn poker(one of my favorite's) and might I add free to play(again one of my favorite's), Bago boards, and the list goes on. Harrison's also has the best food in town. I highly recommend this bar and as for the smoke as everyone has mentioned, ITS A BAR! Yes it would be nice to get rid of the smoke but what can you do. Dont miss out.

Pros: ample to do

Cons: Smoke

.

This place is ALWAYS filled with smoke so don't even think about eating there with the family. The staff is inattentive at best. I've tolerated this place for a while because my friends like it there, but no more. I'm tired of waiting too long for a drink, too long for food, being treated porrly by staff and management AND THE OWNERS!!! This is not a professionally run establishment. The employees drink at the bar after their shift (which is probably why no one else can get any service). The bathroom is CONSTANTLY out of order. This place needs a major renovation, starting with the staff. The food is OK but the burgers are usually undercooked. There are so many other places that are so much better. Don't waste your time on this crappy place. I know I won't anymore!

ME AND 5 OF MY FRIENDS WENT HUNG OUT AT HARRISONS THIS PAST SATURDAY AFTERNOON TO WATCH THE GAME. OUR WAITRESS WAS ALRIGHT, SHE ONLY FORGOT ABOUT US A BUNCH OF TIMES AND IT WASNT THAT BUSY. AROUND 4 OR 5 IT STARTED GETTING A LOT BUSIER AND AFTER NOT SEEING OUR WAITRESS FOR ABOUT 25 MINUTES, WE FINALLY DO SEE HER AND SHE'S WALKING OUT THE DOOR! FORTUNATELY A NEW WAITRESS STARTED WAITING ON US AND SHE HAD A MUCH BETTER PERSONALITY AND WAS MUCH BETTER LOOKING, BUT SHE HAD NO IDEA WHAT WAS GOIN ON, IT GOT BUSY AS HELL AND IT SEEMED LIKE THEY WERE UNDERSTAFFED, WE WERE GETTING READY TO LEAVE AND WERE WAITING TO GET OUR CHECK WHEN ANTOTHER WAITRESS (I THINK IT WAS THE MANAGER) CAME AND CHECKED ON US TO SEE IF WE WANTED ANOTHER ROUND. SHE ASKED US IF EVERYTHING WAS OKAY AND ACTUALLY SAT DOWN AND TALKED TO US, APLOGIZED SINCERELY ABOUT A DOZEN TIMES AND TOOK A ROUND OF DRINKS OFF OF OUR CHECK. MY FRIENDS WERE INTOWN VISITING FROM CHARLOTTE AND WE TOLD HER WE WERE HEADING DOWN TOWN AND SHE SUGGESTED A FEW PLACES AND INTRODUCED US TO THE LOCAL CAB DRIVER TUBA. I USE TO GO TO HARRISONS A LOT BUT STOPPED GOING BECAUSE OF THE SAME TYPE OF SERVICE WE GOT EARLIER THAT DAY. WE ALL REALLY APPRECIATED THE MANAGER AND SHE TOOK AWESOME CARE OF US. IN THE TIME IT TOOK US TO GET OUR CHECKS, PAY THEM AND GET UP, 4 DIFFERENT WAITRESSES ASKED HOW WE WERE DOING TONIGHT AND ASKED IF WE NEEDED ANYTHING. THE DIFFERENCE IN THE SERVICE AND THE WAITRESSES BETWEEN THE NIGHT AND THE DAY IN THAT BAR IS EXACTLY THAT.

The management takes the time to ask about your meal, how the service is, ect. Great food, Great service. Best hangout spot in the area hands down. I am and will be there every night for years to come.

HORRIBLE SERVICE!!!! like most other people here, i will not be returning to harrison's. after an hour of watching the waitresses hanging out talking i finally had to go to the bar to even get my check. keep in mind there was maybe 10 people in the entire place!
Gave it one more chance yesterday and after being served by an incredibly rude young woman on the non smoking side will NOT be returning. EVER. after she screwed up my order she gave me a condecending look when i asked for it THE WAY I ORIGINALLY ORDERED IT!!! the replaced order was simply wiped clean of the offending ingredients (which they didnt even do a good job of) giving no regard to the fact that I ordered it like that FOR A REASON!
I've worked in the service industry for 15 years and have never worked or eaten at a place with as bad an attitude/service towards their PAYING CUSTOMERS.
Maybe these servers are in a bad mood because their lousy service and demeanor isnt earning them many tips. GET A CLUE!!
People would be better served to spend their money at one of the many restaurants around here where the management actually CARES about their customers.

Harrison's Bar and Grill rocks! They always have great specials and the prices are great. I LOVE their potato skins. You can watch the game on their many televisions, shoot a game of pool, or play the video bar games. Great food and fun atmosphere!

Sure Harrison's has good food, but the service stinks! I've been there several times and every time it took ages to get acknowledged. Some of the bartenders are friendly and treat you well, but other than that I haven't enjoyed my time there.
I've worked in the service industry for years- So I like to tip well for people that wait on me anywhere I go, but I have to say, I did not do this at Harrison's on the times I had been there.
There's bar that's a 2 minute walk from Harrison's, The Upper Deck where the staff are a lot more welcoming, and I prefer to hang out there.

If you go to Harrison's, definately find a seat at the bar.

Like everyone else has said, don't waste your time, especially if you don't want to smell like cigar smoke and god knows what else for the rest of your night. It's the closest bar to my house, so now and then I end up going there after work just out of convenience, but I don't know why because every time I do I regret it. I have never seen management around unless drinking. The food is very hit-or-miss--if they get your order right--and the place is very dirty. Do yourself a favor and find someplace else.

I have been a long time customer at this bar for several year, and have given it more opportunities to make up for its wrong doings then it deserves. I am DONE with this terrible service. After so may times of ordering food/beers that never come, I am feed up. (In fact on multiple occasions I've come home to fend for myself after going there for a meal) . Managements attitude towards its customers is disgraceful and most of the servers are indifferent. This place is not worth your time/money.

June, 2008. I have (had) been a regular: at least twice a month for about the past 5-6 years. I'd usually go on Saturday because of the ribs special. I usually order one or two beers when I'm there.

Today was my last visit...ever

The ribs were cold so I sent them back. They put them under the warming lamp for about 2 minutes which made the cole slaw hot and the ribs only moderately warmer (not to mention the fries got soaked in rib grease)....I mean, COME ON!! the frigging cole slaw was HOT when the plate was returned to me!!

When I placed my food order, I also asked for a Rogue Dead Guy on tap and when I got my bill, the cost of the beer was $5.57!!

$6 for a draft beer?! , did they pump it out of the ground in Saudi Arabia and refine it in the Gulf of Mexico before it got tapped it in Cary?...WTF! Maybe it should be called Rogue Dead Dinosaur!

I'm a homebrewer and even my WORST beer is better than a luke-warm, partially carbonated $6 dead guy!

I feel violated after the shock of today's bill; I hope this post enlightens current and potential future patron's.

I grew up in the bar business and worked in it. I must say Harrisons has the worst sevice of any place I have ever been too. All the wait staff have horrible attitudes and are VERY slow.

I Love Harrison's. They have now changed one side to NS and it is great. The food is always good. The only thing that I don't like is that if you get a moody bartender waiting on you. When I go in if I see the bald guy (I think his name is Brett ot Brent) or the day time girl, Suzie, I walk out they are always so short, almost to the point of being rude. Last time I was there and I decided to stay the Brent guy was so rude and put out by having to clean our table off that he never returned to wait on us. Everytime I have been there even if he's not waiting on us he comes off SOOO rude to everyone around us that he is speaking too. Thankfully the cute little girl working with him saw us and ran out and took great care of us. Suzie by the end of her shift just is always so grumpy, guess she should take some time off. Other than those two people this establishment is GREAT and I LOVE going there.

I am a Cary native. Can you believe it? I have been going to Harrison's for years. It was a good hangout for my friends to have good food, a variety of drinks, play pool and let's not forget pickle chips! We used to go there at least three times a week. However, within the last two years I have only gone three times. The food is still wonderful but the service is the worst I've had anywhere. I kept trying to give them another chance. My suggestion to you is order take out or be prepared to get frustrated and spend a long time waiting for your server to get you anything!

Harrison's is no Ruth's Chris, but it's not supposed to be. Great food, good beer , great prices and a lively Sports Bar atmosphere. A little less smoke would be nice. I have friends that visit from New Jersey that must come to Harrison's every time they visit. It's a regular for my wife and I. Parking is a problem.

First of all this place is one big ashtray. You will leave smelling like you smoked a pack of cigarettes even if you never put one of those nasty things to your lips. It ruins the taste of food and beer and will stink up your car when you leave. If smoking bothers you at all dont step foot in this place. Make sure to rub the buddah's belly if you stop by for good luck, you'll need it to fend off lung cancer.

They have a great beer selection and good pub grub and good beer specials during the week. The service is good too.

I have to correct MonAccount's review. Harrison's has way more than 15 beers on tap. Total, there are about 50 -60. I have been going to Harrison's since the day they opened 9 years ago. They have a variety of domestics, imports and mostly micro brews. If you want a place to hang out with friends or have a good meal, check them out!

I have to correct MonAccount's review. Harrison's has way more than 15 beers on tap. Total, there are about 50 -60. I have been going to Harrison's since the day they opened 9 years ago. They have a variety of domestics, imports and mostly micro brews. If you want a place to hang out with friends or have a good meal, check them out!

.

they used to have an awesome beer selection - they pared it down to about 15 on tap, most of which I don't like anyway. Their food and service is still good, but I go to bars for beer - and sadly I probably won't be back, except to occasionally see if they've gotten good beers back on the list.

Pros: Affordable, Great service, Good food

Cons: Poor beer selection

This is the place for every occasion. Just go and you will see. The beer selection, the menu, quality of the food and the service will blow you away. This is easily the best bar in Cary, NC-without a doubt. NTN, pool, Golden Tee, many TV's to watch the games on, and the hot servers alone will make your whole night-this IS the place to be in Cary on any night of the week!!

Pros: great menu, fantastic food, ask for Kevin

Cons: way to smokey

.

Great bar, food, pool tables, big screen TV, darts, and juke box. It is the perfect place to go after work to meet friends. The service is always prompt and friendly. Harrison's bartenders are the best! I have been going there for years and have never been disappointed.

I never thought I'd be one to hang out at a sports bar, but I love Harrison's. The staff is great as is the food and beer. Only downside: there is no non-smoking section, but that doesn't stop me!

I am a short drive from Harrison's and love going after work for Burgers and Beer. However, I am now convinced that this is also one of the best places in town to get a group of friends together for the same. Thanks to the awesome staff (and a call ahead of time), they are always willing to bend over backwards to accomodate a large crowd. We started this past Valentine's Day (and recently repeated the same for a Birthday outing) with a group of almost 20 women. Seamless service, great burgers, and an awesome selection of beer (even a decent selection of wine for a sport's bar - for the non-beer drinkers). Many of the women agreed it was better than any date they had been on lately! Go Harrison's!!

Pros: Great Burgers, Great beer selection

Harrison's is by far one of my favorite places to eat and hang out in the Cary-Raleigh area. The menu is huge, and everything that I have tried has been fantastic! Not only do they have a large variety of unique burgers, but you can get them with grilled chicken instead of ground beef! Make sure you try the fried pickle chips -- how delicious! Every good burger deserves a great beer, and Harrison's has more than enough great beers. You can have a great meal, drink some great brews, watch a few games on TV, and play a little pool -- all while listening to the tunes from the jukebox! Harrison's is the best!!

More of a neighborhood hangout than a trendy scene, Harrison's is a great low-key bar with hefty burgers and a wide variety of beers.
