KINGSTON TWP. — Hold on to your taste buds - Harry’s on Carverton has opened and features an array of fresh sandwiches, salads, soups and an alternating dinner menu.
Owner Ron Williams and his wife, Noralie, are stirring up activity at the small eatery located at 217 Carverton Road in Trucksville.
Having worked as a chef for the Beaumont Inn in Dallas Township in the 1990s, Williams uses his culinary talents to design a lunch menu featuring meatball melt, albacore tuna salad brioche, Harry’s Hamburger and so much more.
Dinner menu items change weekly, but on June 16, Williams offered chicken parmesan with pasta and a side salad, steak and peppers, pasta bolognese, portabella mushroom bolognese and linguini with white clam sauce.
Williams said patrons can check out the weekly dinner menu, as well as daily lunch specials, on Harry's on Carverton's Facebook page.
Noralie, a trained pastry chef, makes fresh desserts to sweeten any meal.
Carl Mazaleski, a long-time friend of Ron's helps keep the kitchen running smoothly as assistant chef.
Customers will also meet Williams’ son, Jackson, as he works in the family business this summer
“We are trying to make a nice neighborhood restaurant,” Ron said.
Customers can order in advance and pick up dinners, or lunch, he said.
“We do offer catering,” Ron said but added clients would need to pick up a catering order at the restaurant. “We don’t offer delivery at this point.”
So, with Ron, Carl and Noralie in the kitchen and Jackson in the dining room, who inspired the business name?
“The restaurant is named after my Dad,” Ron said. “He recently passed away last year.”
Harry Williams was “the guy that held the family together and did most of the cooking,” he said.
Ron seems to be trying to follow in his father’s shoes by giving local families homecooked dinner options.
Customers appreciate his effort.
Business is picking up every day, Ron said, and, on the restaurant’s Facebook page, several people have posted comments that include good customer service to great food.
“Everybody has been very nice,” he said.
Harry’s on Carverton was previously That’s a Wrap which closed Jan. 24, 2016. In the 1980s, the building housed John’s Store which served the area as a small grocery store and offered made-to-order sandwiches and more.
