Harrow's Restaurant
126 Main Street, Reading, MA 01867-3924

** Horseshoe Cafe
Rte. 28, Reading, MA
CUSTOMER COMMENTS: The Horshoe Cafe in Reading: Ive been there twice and I wont go back again because there are better places to get BBQ in the region.
I went to the Horseshoe on the basis of a Howie Carr advertisement on WRKO, but was disappointed because the product was overcooked to the point that it was dry and hard. I went there 2 or more times to reassess, since it is on my way home from work, but I probably wont return.
I have found several places I like for BBQ in the metro area; The Porterhouse Cafe in Somerville; Redbones in Davis Square, Somerville; Jakes in Danvers; The Tennessee Barbecue, near the North Shore Mall, Bison County in Waltham.

Customer comments: We came for the sunday Jazz Brunch. The host was disturbed by the fact that we didn't have a reservation. At 1pm the place was half full yet we we're seated directly in front of the Quartet.. It was so noisy we had to leave. Instead we enjoyed a great meal in comfort in the Hotel's Grill Room.

I went on a Friday and the the clam chowder special was very thick and full of clams . I also really like the chicken salad and the daily specials that are ussually hot and change every day. they also have a nice variety of soups to which acompaied my main course when it wasn't friday.

COMMENTS: Pleasant venue located in the former Daniel Lows building (We think the restaurant name should have been Daniel Lows). Eclectic, well thought out and meticulously prepared fare. The only drawback we found was the loud kitchen noise in parts of the restaurant.

Val and Steve McFadden
CUSTOMER COMMENTS: Nice atmosphere and food presentations. Even though our party of four arrived early, we had to wait for nearly an hour for salads and entrees because the computer entry to the kitchen failed. Our salads were served on warm plates and entrees served on cold plates.

CUSTOMER COMMENTS: On a recent trip up route 1 we came accross Striper's Grill. The parking lot was pretty full so we chose the restaurant for our lunch. Our party of four seniors barely made it up the two flights of stairs to get to the dining room (no elevator).
We were seated in the center of a large brighlly lit room with a wall of dirty windows overlooking the water (the room was very clean).
Our waitress who was very busy but jovial. She was full of sweeties, honeys and darlings. We all chose seafood. Two Fish and chips which were fried perfectly with a wondeerful batter, one Shrimp Scampi ala Greque. The six shrimp were cooked nicely but the sauce was powerfully sour tasting. One Baked Struffed Shrimp with too many dried bread crumbs. All of the entrees came with a trip to the amply stocked salad bar and dessert bar.
This place seems very popular but needless to say this was a once in a lifetime trip for us.

CUSTOMER COMMENTS: Polcari's of Saugus was a big nothing for us. The 70's Rock Music was so distracting and loud, we couldn't hear the couple that was with us, talk. We asked the waitress to please turn the music down, a request that was ignored. She didn't return to the table so we got up and left. The staff was silent and watched us leave. To our surprise two ladies from another table followed us out. They told us outside it was for the same reason.
