Great Seafood!!

When you want really fresh, tasty seafood, this is the place! The atmosphere is nice, the service great and the food is always delicious. We drive over from another town just to come here when we're in the mood for really good seafood. Highly recommended!

Harry's Old Place is what many consider a "Hole in the Wall". However, when you get inside, you can smell all that good seafood. They open for dinner at 5: PM, but to get in the first seating, you need to get there early (and wait in line), especially during the winter months when the "snow-birds" are down here. Any... More

This non-chain seafood restaurant is really very good. There is a surprising amount of space inside, which is deceptive from the outside. Also, deceptive from the somewhat plain exterior is a warm, well-decorated interior. The seafood is ALL well prepared and delicious. I particularly recommend those items prepared in a bag!

Took clients to Harry's for a casual business meeting and cannot say enough about the quality of food and service. The assortment and variety of fresh seafood is second to none. My clients could not say enough about their enjoyable experience here. I would highly recommend the swordfish and Harry's in a Bag (grouper with pecan topping). Sweet and spicy... More

My mom, myself, and my 7 year old grandson ate here when visiting Legoland. Definitely worth the short wait...they said 45 minutes, it was only 20. Harry served our food, being in a family owned restaurant ourselves we really appreciated this touch. The Mahi was superb, as was the Grouper in a bag with pecan sauce. My Grandson raved about...

This could be a 5-star review but more than once my fish has been overcooked. The prices are a bit high, but the food is delicious & the service excellent. There is always a very wide variety of seafood available on the board, including Sea Bass & Monkfish. Have not had a bad meal here other than when they overcook... More

This intimate space in a corner of Winter Haven is WELL WORTH going out of one's way for! Superb food, wide array of uber-fresh fish, and attentive service!

It was quaint and very pleasant . The people were friendly and the staff even more so. The food was great and I really enjoyed my dinner which consisted of gator bites and a salad. I wish I lived closer I would be a regular.

Best restaurant hands down. Always dine in with my wife and she loves it. She doesn't even like seafood and she rather eat here than anywhere else. Gator bites and onion loaf are the best. Family owned. Owners are good people always talk to you and make sure everything is ok. Have been coming here for years.
