We were just in town for a couple days. Went there looking for a place to have a couple drinks that wasn't a cookie cutter place. What a great spot to hang out, the wait staff and owners are great. And there from PA even better. They really make you feel at home. Can't wait to go back next visit...thank... More

I found the place to represent ALL of the comments - good to bad that have been posted on Trip Advisor. I can understand all of those comments from good to bad. The place is a hole in the wall, no doubt. The place has a limited menu, no doubt and for me, just OK wine. I don't drink beer... More

We went passed this place a few times on prior trips and commented it looked like a dodgy biker bar. We were surprised when it was highly recommended, and a bunch of us from out of town went there for supper. When we first walked in, we had our doubts, but they were blown away. The service was excellent, and... More

this is one of those local wing / bar / pubs that is great to just go and hang out. Try the Pittsburgh Sandwich and a few wings.

A group went last night and the service was quick and efficient - if a little mouthy. The steamed oysters were beautifully prepared and downed quickly. I ordered the fried scallops which came with fries and cole slaw. The scallops were very lightly dredged - YEA! Usually restaurants slap them in a heavy batter. The big surprise was the fries....

I have passed this place for years, and when friends suggested we meet there I thought "Why not?". Well I can tell you why not. No atmosphere, we waited over an hour to be served inedible food, and then got a lot of smart-mouth backtalk. I only give it 1 star because negative 5 stars is not an option.

I recently had the opportunity to try this talked about local restaurant. Not a fancy place, but the food and fresh oysters make up for it. A must visit location in Aiken.

A great place for shrimp, scallops, crab legs. Nothing fancy, perhaps even a bit shoddy. But good food and beer at reasonable prices.

Harry's is definitely a hole in the wall with great atmosphere once you get past the run down old house look. The food here is great...love the oysters (raw of course), crab, wings, steak salad, fish and chips..and the list goes on. I visit this restaurant/bar at least once a week and am never disappointed. It has a large patio... More
