This place seems to be a hub of strange energy. The band had an eagerness to please, but at times, high pitched to the ears. The locale was good, walking distance from the hotel (I walked back to it to avoid the bathroom). The cocktail waitress did exceptionally well getting to us in the elbow to elbow crowd. The straw...

three of us stopped in for bloody Mary's and they were wonderful. The only negative comment is that only one employee was working her tail off and the bar was busy...she could have used some help.

This may not be everyone's cup of tea - but the mix of locals, tourists, young and old is rare. Its full of character, soul and a memorable night out. People dancing to the band (very good) like in the 70's. There's a novel here - noisy, sleazy, friendly, grungey, full of life - an authentic dose of rock n... More

We had already eaten and were walking back to the hotel...Harry's was just a plain fun find for us! The waitress was sweet, the band was good, the (small) crowd was friendly and happy to dance and have a good time. It was a perfect end to our evening and we burned off some of that fabulous local clam chowder.

Been going to Harry's since the early 1980s and have never been endeared to it. If I had to build a dive bar at the beach this is the model for it. Paul the owner tried to make this a surviving money maker and he did. Kudos to Paul ! He and the place are survivors and Harry's is a... More

Pismo is a classic California sleepy beach town. And what classic beach town doesn't have a dive bar that attracts both locals and tourists. Harry's is a quintessential dive bar in the best sense of the word. It offers cheap drinks, lots of seating, people watching extraordinaire, and, on the night we were there, a really excellent 80's funk/soul cover... More

Average dive bar with a varied crowd on a Thursday night. Cash only! Drinks were a little bit pricey, but were super strong. Two points off for the horrible, open sewer type smell that hits you when you walk in and the absolutely awful, nails on the chalkboard type karaoke that was blaring at about 10,000 decibels. Apparently this is... More

This bar draws and older crowd but it is definitely a lot of fun. The cover band was horrible. I actually thought it was karaoke night but nope it was a cover band and they were just that bad. I think it made the night funner though. We laughed danced and had a drinks.

If you are in the area, stop in EARLY - after a certain time they charge a cover due to the bands they have nightly. They are one of the few bars that have a dance floor so they get kudos for that. Later in the night it can get a little rowdy. The prices are average and the servers... More
