Shrimp Cocktail to Die For!

If you are in Indy this is a must. Wonderful menu and the best shrimp cocktail you have ever had. I had the filet and it was perfectly cooked and perfectly delicious. Great atmosphere in this wide open venue. We sat at the bar and all of the bar tenders were very friendly and helpful.

Especially at their prices one would expect that the executive chef would know his cuts of meat and the line chefs would know how to expertly prepare a well-aged steak. Not here, evidently. Had the shrimp cocktail. Big asian shrimp lacking the umami that good gulf shrimp has even though the cocktail sauce was bold. Then ordered a ribeye medium... More

Nice size portions most things come with a side but others were ala carte. I put my leftover steak in the micro to get it medium rare. Great service all around, we came in with a large party. I'm used to fine dining and I wasn't that impressed.

MUST have the shrimp cocktail! Delicious food and exceptional service. It was a pleasure to dine at this iconic Indy restaurant! Also, a side dish you might not think of trying, brussels sprouts, was actually divine and I would recommend!

Attended a small dinner meeting at Harry and Izzy's. Great private area up above the main dining room. Appetizers were outstanding: shrimp with legendary cocktail sauce, calamari, spicy meatballs. Salads and entrees were also very good but I could have made a meal of the appetizers alone...they were that good.

We took some friends who had never eaten at Harry & Izzys, and I am certain they will never go back. I was surprised that the food and service were not good. The steak was tough and the burger was super dry. We normally have decent food at the downtown location so we were surprised that this location was so... More

This was not our first time at Harry and Izzy's the food is always great and the service was wonderful. I tried their "Fried Green tomato's" and they were wonderful.
