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.

Consistently Great

We love this restaurant! The food is excellent. The new Orleans dishes are spicy good not burn your mouth off hot. The seafood is fresh and there is always plenty on the plate. We have even had the hamburgers and the bacon jam is wonderful.

Harry's is one of my favorite lunch spots. Great food and Great Bar. All I can say is you have to have the She Crab Soup - outrageous.

Great food and atmosphere. Can be a long wait on the weekends but worth it. Drinks are great too! Shrimp and grits is my favorite for dinner. We go back often.

This establishment was so highly rated and maybe that is why I was so disappointed but the atmosphere was chaotic and the food was average. Service was slow and unattentive.

Harry's has been a staple downtown for many years. They have consistently maintained quality in both food and service. Located in an historic building that creates the perfect ambiance, you will find a unique menu featuring Cajun style cuisine. Seafood always seems fresh and well prepared. Atmosphere is energetic but suitable for either a romantic evening out or a group... More

We arrived at 12:20PM, on a Thursday, and seated promptly. The staff was gracious. She Crab Soup was a killer, had a trace of spice; just right. The Po Boy Oyster on French Bread was OK, 3 Oysters (not French Bread as I know it). The Fried Green Tomato BLT was OK as well. Very little bacon. Nice atmosphere but... More
