Seafood!

Three hours from the ocean, but Harry's, or Local's, always has good fresh seafood and cold drinks. Casual atmosphere, sports talk.

Not much from the outside, but the bar is very personable and the crab legs and shrimp are excellent. Our waitress Kayla, was extremely friendly, a did an excellent job. No draft beer, but had many brands of bottled beer. Not many people there when we arrived at 5 PM, but by the time we left around 7, the place... More

This is a very casual place and is not a place you would pick just looking at the outside. But the seafood is fresh and good and the service good and friendly. We would definitely go back if we are in the area

I usually try to stop in here at least once or twice a month even though I have moved away from the southside. I love raw oysters and this place has the best in town. I would say that over the past few years Harry's has surpassed Rhinehart's as far as total quality of the shellfish. Now, the place is... More

I was here with a few friends and we all ordered crab buckets and chicken wings. They were awesome and great value. Beers were good but no draft which was weird, because usually every place has at least couple drafts. The service could be better, but I guess its wasn't very fast because the place was crowded (we were there... More

But don't let that fool you. Generous drinks. Nice service. Prime rib on Friday night - don't miss it. Serving is huge and cooked to your specs. A local treasure.

I went to meet friends. Never been prior to this. The bar is small. Nothing fancy. Just a place to come as you are. The glass of wine was filled to the rim which was nice and the service was good. My shrimp were overcooked. I would go back if asked to meet again, but would not select on my... More
