Thank you for visiting Harry's Seafood Bar & Grille! A distinctively different menu, the food of Harry's Seafood Bar and Grille captures the essence of a city not only known worldwide as the birthplace of Jazz but also the birthplace of a unique style of cooking.
We've taken the best of Cajun, Creole and Southern flavors infused with a current day twist to create some of our most popular dishes like Shrimp and Scallop Orleans, Grilled Chicken Baton Rouge, Crab Crusted Blackened Red Fish, Bourbon Street Salmon and French Quarter Beef Tenderloin to name a few.

One of our favorite places to eat in downtown Gainesville. Food is always good, but sometimes the service can be a little slow but it doesn't discourage us from returning. They also have an early dining menu which is nice, and the weekly specials are good.

At Harry's, the customer enjoys wonderful atmosphere, good service, and great food. Despite the fact that each item is priced separately, as in main dish, vegetable, side, beverage, etc., the evening is well worth the cost. A great place to celebrate an event, such as birthday, anniversary, making memories for all.

I can eat at Harry's every day. All of their food is great but I am very much in love with their crab cakes with mashed potatoes oh my God and don't forget their bread.

Usually if I'm going to spend money on seafood I'll be going to the local Sushi restaurants, but if you want to make an exception and have some American oriented seafood then Harry's is a good choice and you can actually get seafood that's not all fried or breaded. Plenty of broiled or grilled options and some really good soups... More

Harry's looks interesting outside, and is in a historic building with exposed brick walls inside, but the food is pretty average. Staffed by college students who want to grow up and do something else, the service suffers. The menu hasn't changed in years, so if you have ever eaten here the items will look familiar.

Enjoyed the visit, dinner was good. Ambiance was nice as well. Free valet parking a nice touch. 1/2 hour call ahead policy got us in immediately. Wife really enjoyed her salmon, son had a good ribeye but had to be sent back as it was undercooked. I had the stuffed shrimp but it was a bit salty. Appetizer was a... More

The food was great, well seasoned and decently sized portions. Location is great too; downtown with plenty of things to see. Downside, couldn't eat my food peacefully on the pation bcos of hecklers. Overall, will definitely do it again

I always enjoy any meal here. Every thing I've ever ordered is wonderful and their chocolate bread pudding is The Bomb. Servers are always friendly and on the ball.

Harry's has been in Gainesville for decades. It's food was excellent when it started and hasn't changed since. It's known for it's New Orleans fare and gets five stars from our Louisiana friends. Nice atmosphere with outdoor seating, great service and large portions. Leave room for the bananas foster. Perfect place to bring out of towners.
