Feels like Stealing: Harrington's Buy One, Get One Meal Deal

By Lynda Wheatley | May 9, 2020

We won’t lie to you — it feels a little like stealing when you take advantage of the buy-one-get-one deal at Harrington’s by the Bay in Traverse City. Especially when you get back home, roughly 30 minutes after placing your order, bearing a fabulous squash soup and four pretty-dang gourmet dishes for less than $35. Total. We tried — and were utterly delighted by — every one: lettuce wraps ready to stuff with marinated chicken breast, a sweet and slow-growing hot Thai ginger peanut sauce, and crispy rice noodles; a bacon and white cheddar burger made of their hand-cut filet mignon, NY strip, and ribeye steaks, then pillowed between halves of a soft bakery roll and topped with fresh fixins; one of the finest whitefish sandwiches (served with coleslaw and truffle fries) we’ve known; and a West Bay Club, made fancy with seared chicken (not deli slices), marinated tomatoes, bourbon bacon, and a rustic sourdough that’s snappily dressed in sweet chili aioli. Harrington’s offers these and much more from its extensive curbside menu 11am–8pm every single day. We don’t know how, but it does. Our advice: Take advantage but assuage your guilt with the best tip you can manage. It’ll be worth every penny. See the menu at and place your order with a call to (231) 421-9393.
