Well prepared, fresh food.

Pleasantly surprised with the freshness and quality of the food. The restaurant is small and does not seat many people so there is generally a wait but it is worth it.

Food was excellent and people were friendly. Not much for a wine list but people go here for the food.

The food is always good, just beware there is usually a 45 minute plus wait (for dinner), and parking can be a pain, but it is worth it. the owners and the staff are always very nice and friendly.

If you love delicious fresh fish, seafood, or steaks and don't mind creative parking and potentially long waits to be seated, Harry's Old Place is a non-chain restaurant that is locally owned and owner managed with a great reputation.

Do not confuse this place with Harry's in downtown Lakeland. This is the restaurant in Winter Haven. The meals are wonderful. They have the largest menu I have seen.

We had a great meal after a long day at Legoland. It was great to go to a local's place and not get treated like a tourist. Thanks Harry. Great meeting you and the Grouper Special was quite tasty.

Outstanding! This goes for both the food and service! Casual atmosphere so you can bring the kids and still enjoy an adult meal.

Happened to find this place using the 'Find me Gluten Free' app. What a great little restaurant! Ended up eating here 2 night and both times, the food was amazing. The server are not only very personable but also knowledgeable about allergies and the food prep. Can't wait to visit again on our next trip to the area!

Harry's is our go to place for the best; freshest fish,seafood and steaks. Been going there for better than 25 years. Great food, crowded, a bit noisy, prices are reasonable.

I have always enjoyed eating here. Food is always top notch. I especially enjoy the seasonal fish. Devil crab balls and french onion soup are great.
