Not worried about cholestoral, must go to Harold's. I always visit it once when I am in HH for lunch, they're Boston fans so if you want a little sparring, wear a Yankee cap

This is where the local workers get breakfast. I liked it much more than my wife did. She worried about the hand washing of the dishes near our table. Not as safe as a dishwasher​, I guess. They have the basics in this no frills diner. Lots of funny signs like "SORRY, WE'RE OPEN" and lots of Red Sox paraphernalia.... More

I always try to make it to Harold's for one breakfast while in HH. Not only is the food good and plentiful, but the atmosphere and charm comes through with sharpened wit. Its theater in the cooked.

Looks can be deceiving. It doesn't look like much, but was a wonderful surprise starting with the way we ordered. Grab a menu/order forms right inside the door on the wall. You are your own waitress. The food was good and plentiful. The guys that run it were nice and friendly. Glad we found it.

Returned after 13 years and faith in human nature returned. Walked in to be insulted but food continues to be outstanding, prices still excellent will be back.

We come to hhi a couple times a year. We always have to eat breakfast here. And we discovered lunch during this trip. They serve a great hamburger. Eating here is always a fun experience.

We met friends in Hilton Head and they said we have to go to Harold's..so we went for lunch! We spent the entire time reading all the bumper stickers. Hamburgers are great! Menus are on the wall when you walk in. Most of the sitting is at the counter like an old fashioned diner. There are a few tables for... More

If you're looking for atmosphere, or you're a Yankees fan, keep driving. If you're looking for good food at a good price, stop by! Seating is limited and often packed. This treasure is a local favorite. So, shhhh, keep the secret. Fluffy omelettes packed with anything and everything you could want for one great price.

Some of the best junk food you will ever eat in an old-fashioned diner covered inside with air reverent posters of some of the funniest and most insightful one-liners you'll ever see. And a staff that at times can be equally air reverent and a very funny sort of way. They are fast they are friendly and the food is... More
