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.

Out of this World Dining Experience!

My husband insisted on trying Harry's while visiting our family in Ocala. We arrived around 5:30 pm, yesterday, and were quoted a wait time of 1-1 1/2 hours for our party of nine! Honestly, we NEVER stay when quoted that kind of time frame, but let me say it was completely worth the wait... read more

My fiancé and I have been to Harry's about 5 times since moving to FL. It has always been great, food is fresh and love the New Orleans flavors. And wonderful service to go with it. If a busy restaurant is an indicator then Harry's is the place! Try the bar!

We dined here at about 2pm on a Wednesday. It was slow so we had our pick of the outdoor dining area. Our server was friendly and happy to make suggestions. Everything we had was yummy...try the fried green tomatoes!

I frequent the Harry's in Ocala and the one in Gainesville. They both always live up to my expectations. There are many items on the menu and over the years I think have tried almost all of them. There is usually a line during the lunch hours at the one in Ocala. The service staff is well trained and attentive.

Make sure to get an order of fried green tomatoes. The best ever. The stuffed shrimp were amazing. Corn cheese grits can't be any better, and the key lime pie rocks.

There are many activities in the downtown area and when we attend, we always eat at Harry's. Situated across the street from the Gazebo so it is in a very favorable location. The staff is friendly and although during these activities there is a waiting time, the turn around is not too long. My favorite dish is the Beef Tenderloin,... More

This place has atmosphere, great food and awesome service. Although we don't normally eat at restaurants like this we decided to try it out, we will definitely be going back. I have a few allergies to foods and there were extremely accommodating and patient with me while i asked lots of questions about ingredients in their recipes. The food is... More
