Harold's Cave Creek Corral
Long before Cave Creek was the trendy place for city slickers to build their winter homes, there was Harold's, a legend with locals since 1935. The true-to-life Arizona ambiance has been seen in many films and has been visited by many celebrities. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, kick up your heels to the live country music. The restaurant takes up two levels, with a full bar on each floor and with western ranch paraphernalia all over. Rustic furnishings and photos of the place's history give it a "this-ain't-no-country-club" attitude. Choose from menu items such as the 29-ounce "Whole Herd" Porterhouse, or the Veal Scaloppini. This place also features pizza, pasta and fish if you prefer, with a slew of "appeteasers." Bands play on weekends and add to the zing of the place. Catering is also offered, accommodating 20 to 300 people.
Harold's is a landmark in Cave Creek. The food is awesome and they are known for having the best live entertainment in town. In fact, last time we were there we saw a band called Rondavous. WHAT AN INCREDIBLE GROUP OF MUSICIANS!!!! They blew us away. The 2 female singers of the band were fantastic and each member of the band was featured throughout the evening. We're checking the schedule for them again. Highly recommended. Our food was tasty........and there was plenty of it. You can easily have an appetizer as your main course. My only complaint is that the bartenders are a little slow. If you order from your table you should be fine but the wait at the bar can be a bit long because the bartenders tend to dissappear quite often. All-in-all, you should definitely go there if you're in Cave Creek.
Great service, great food, large portions, fabulous prices (especially when you consider all you get for your money). We went on a Friday night. Our waitor was busy but all was came through for us. They held our reservation (which I highly recommend) even though we arrived late. They had a couple of dance instructors which were fun to watch and follow. They did a variety of western dances and then had a live band.
The view was awesome to be eating dinner and watch the sun set through large windows.
I am recommending this place to everyone.
