As we embrace the familiar warmth and vibrant atmosphere of Harry's Roadhouse, it's impossible not to feel a sense of home. Behind this beloved Santa Fe gem stands Kathleen O'Brien, whose passion for hospitality has been the heartbeat of our establishment for over two decades. Starting her journey 24 years ago as a manager, Kathleen has since become the proud owner, infusing Harry's Roadhouse with her unique vision of warmth, welcome, and community.

Our  philosophy is simple yet profound: to make every visitor feel like "Norm" from Cheers—a place where "everybody knows your name." This isn't just about recognizing faces; it's about remembering your favorite table or bar seat, your preferred meal, and greeting you with a warmth that makes Harry's Roadhouse feel like an extension of your own kitchen. This philosophy has transformed our space into more than just a restaurant; it's a community hub where friendships flourish over shared meals.

We believe in the power of gratitude and thankfulness, both for the incredible people I work with and for you, our guests, who have chosen to make us a part of your lives. Whether you're here to celebrate, unwind, or enjoy a casual meal, we're here to make your experience memorable.

o know that we've created a space where even the youngest of our guests feel joy and comfort is truly the best reward we could ask for.
Thank you, Meadow, for reminding us of the simple joys of life and the power of a good meal. You're the reason we keep striving to make Harry's Roadhouse a place of warmth and delight for everyone. 💖
We're more than just a restaurant; we're a little piece of home in the heart of Santa Fe.
