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.

Best bites in Ocala

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.

Atmosphere with a Capital A. Service excellent and walk-ins welcome. I walked in. Attentive yet unobtrusive staff, lead to booth and lemonade ordered had refills without asking. Ordered Southern Fried Chicken tenders with side of red beans and rice. Food served hot and chicken crispy and not soggy - impressed and happy. Mamma Mia, I could eat only half. As... More

Nice location in downtown Gainesville with outdoor seating. The service was excellent, and the food was very good. I had the Taste of New Orleans which included gumbo, jambalaya, and redfish etouffe. The gumbo was just ok but the jambalaya and etouffe were excellent.

This restaurant was recommended by Mama who lives in Ocala. We had a real enjoyable dinner with our folks over Spring Break. Food was great and atmosphere wonderful.

Harry's has great food, an good menu selection, a nice decor and great atmosphere (like an old English Pub). The restaurant is on the Square and nicely located.

There was no wait time which I was pleased with and it wasn't busy. The first thing I noticed was all the pregnant waitresses. Quite frankly, I don't think pregnant waitresses that far along should be working. It took about 10 minutes for someone to ask us for our order. We ordered our drinks and our food at the same...
