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 Favorites!

We've been visiting Harry's for 10 years, and it's always the same... GREAT!! I love how there are always new dishes to try, but the old favorites are still there to enjoy! At Harry's they always strive to have the best service! The food is pretty reliable and yummy! We love the atmosphere and... read more

Our friends from New Orleans, love this place. My wife and I went for lunch. It was crowded, noisy, expensive and the food was average (in our view). Because of the crowd (I guess), the service was a bit slow. It is a New Orleans-type restaurant with fun N'awlin's décor. I will say, their draft beer was the coldest I... More

Came here for my birthday with family. This place was ok. Food was ok...but not wow'd by anything. We might come back, it was ok--nobody got sick, service was nice enough. Service was slow, and we were pretty much the only peeps in the entire place. The oreo beighnets were good. Just mediocre.

The food is great, the service is generally great to very good, However, in this day and age this restaurant on the Ocala Square ALLOWS smoking in the front of their restaurant outside at sidewalk tables! I know......can you believe it? No matter the basic regulations that other restaurants abide by, this place still lets all types of smokers light-up... More

I am fairly new to Ocala and want to try a lot of different restaurants but I find myself always back to Harry's because they have the entire "package". Their food is distinctive, the menu is very diverse (from burgers to she crab soup, lots of seafood, pastas, salads) all nicely seasoned. For those who shy away from Cajun spices.....fear... More

We love to try new restaurants when visiting in-laws in Ocala. But both my husband and I can't imagine going anywhere else when we know how good this New Orleans grub is!

I'm simply writing this review before my husband does. As his would be a bit harsher than mine. Our family is in town. My brother in law who's on leave from the Navy and my mom from CA. We were told a 45m wait which was fine. While waiting already for 25 minutes a family came and was told they... More

Our supper club of ten people went to Harry's in Ocala Thursday evening. We had to wait quite a while for a table. (Understandable for a restaurant that does not take reservations.) The hostess kept us up-to-date on the table situation and we were comped appetizers and allowed to order off the early bird menu. (Thank you). The dinning room... More

Husband had the rib eye which he said was very good and the red beans and rice side dish was alright. I had the catfish which I thought was okay, could barely identify it as catfish by the taste. Crab cake appetizer was good. The portions were large so we didn't have room for dessert.
