What is an important asset that restaurants bring to the table that is often overlooked? Restaurants can be staples in the community that bring people together. Having a meal with family and friends helps people to come together, strengthen ties, and build better relationships. This in turn, can create a sense of belonging which can lead to better self-esteem.

Do not get me wrong, technology has made our lives better in so many ways, but there is no substitute for human interaction. In the Aliquippa/Hopewell area, it is safe to say that the house that Captain Rod built, founder of Harold’s Inn, is a staple in the community. Captain Rod is a local legend, he made Black Velvet, also known as “Beaver County Gold,” famous. Let us dive in, shall we?

Harold’s Inn is famous for their pressure-cooked chicken and taters coated in their famous Mountain Style Seasoning. The recipe is unique and has been handed down from generation to generation. One thing you notice upon being seated is their extensive menu. You can get anything here and it is good. Order Chicken Wings extra crispy, and not only do they nail the buffalo sauce, but their famous Mountain Style Seasoning is added to the sauce adding an extra layer of flavor. Their famous Taters can be added to almost any meal. They are fried to perfection and coated in the regionally famous seasoning. Their salads are rich and generously dressed in fresh toppings. They know how to cook A steak and hamburger and prepare fresh seafood. They also have an extensive list of appetizers to get your meal started right.

Harold’s Inn Final Take:
  • Taste and Flavor
  • Portion Size
  • Affordability
  • Ambiance


As always, my final take. Harold’s Inn has been serving the Beaver County and Greater Pittsburgh Area for nearly 60 years. Harold’s has done an excellent job of innovating and making minor tweaks to keep up with the times while keeping the character of the original design, and maintaining that old-school feel. It is a highly versatile establishment with multiple dining rooms, a bar, and a patio. Schedule a banquet, rehearsal dinner, or party with advanced notice. Bottom line, by utilizing their extensive family experience in the restaurant business, Harold’s can do it all. Anyone in Aliquippa/Hopewell area will tell you when presented the opportunity to enjoy their famous taters, you never pass, it is just something you do not do…
