Best in Polk county!

I've tried just about every seafood restaurant in Polk county and hands down Harry's is the best! Always cooked to order and fresh. If you don't care for what you ordered (as in tried something new) they will bring you something else! Not many restaurants do that anymore! Always busy so patience is... read more

I've tried just about every seafood restaurant in Polk county and hands down Harry's is the best! Always cooked to order and fresh. If you don't care for what you ordered (as in tried something new) they will bring you something else! Not many restaurants do that anymore! Always busy so patience is needed, but definitely worth the wait!!

This is a good place to eat. I can't say it's my favorite, but it's good. Everyone should try it. It's worth the visit.

There's a reason why there is usually a line at the front door prior to opening. A great locals favorite. IF you're looking for fish in the Winter Haven area this is the first place to go.

Harry's Old Place is a Winter Haven Institution and is with little doubt the best Florida Seafood restaurant in the city and county. The food is excellent, the service is great, the portions are large and the prices are reasonable. There are three downsides to Harry's. The first is parking which is at a premium. You may have to park... More

Normally, we have a great experience here. The food is ALWAYS good, I won't deny that, but when I took my mother to dinner for mother's day, we were turned away not even 30 seconds after a relatively large party was let in. They apparently don't make dinner reservations, but I could clearly see some on a board from the... More

Ok, first i have to say, i would never have thought to put honey mustard with fried catfish fingers. But they did, and it was fabulous. Salad was a bit bitter, but can't help the greenery one gets. The bleu cheese dressing was very tasty. The cole slaw was very creamy and good. Now for the entrees. What do they... More

They have a large selection of fresh seafood to choose from. Prepared well and served fast and hot. The house dressing makes your salad great. Good enough to drink alone,. Steaks are available for the land lovers. Great service by a very attentive staff. Desserts are good if you have the room.. Harry is always there serving and visiting tables.

We arrived 20 minutes after they opened for dinner, and just in time to miss a first-round table. The wait was about an hour and I'm glad we stayed. Our children enjoyed the seafood as much as we did. Great service and solid, fresh seafood that doesn't need to be drowned in sauces and such. Another great, local place I... More

This place has been a local favorite for years and continues to do a outstanding job of service , quality and price. You know it has to be good because of the lines when they open , poor parking and out of the way location.

This review is long overdue. Wife & I went to Harry's last year with our 2 sons after a day at Legoland. Being a Saturday at dinner time I expected a wait. Wrong. Harry sat us right down. The wait staff was friendly. So far so good. We did not think it was too loud (but remember we had spent... More
