“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

Although the atmosphere inside was lovely and the food was fine, the service was way below the level that I would have expected. It took several minutes to have our drink order taken, then a lengthy amount of time for our appetizer and entree orders, second round of drinks and desserts. Although the food was good, there was very little follow up throughout the meal, We routinely eat at restaurants with similar prices, we are not demanding or hard to please (I did not have a problem when told that my arugula salad would not have arugula as the kitchen had run out), and we usually tip 25% or more; however, the tip we left here was minimal as we were made to feel like we should feel lucky to be given any service at all. Overall not a happy holiday meal.

“Eclectic Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I dropped in for lunch, we were not disappointed. The shrimp-cargot was to die for. The food was excellent, the quantity was generous. Will go back many times in the future.

“Great Christmas Take Out!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2013

This is a wonderful local restaurant turned gourmet. I met Harry when we first moved here in November and dined at the restaurant for dinner. It was great! We recently ordered our Christmas meal "to GO" from here and were not disappointed. We just finished the most wonderful Chateaubriand for two with all the fixings! If you are visiting Longboat Key this winter, make sure you stop by Harry's. It's great!

“We repeatedly visited the deli: it was great.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013 via mobile

We actually never went to the restaurant, but im sure that it must be high quality... As the deli was top notch. Staff was very friendly and the sandwiches were very good, at a good price. I'd reccomend the shrimp po boy or the Cuban. They also have a very good wine selection if you need to pick up some bottles to take back to the condo. We went back every day to pick up lunch at the deli. I'd be back again when we return to lbk.

“We love Harry's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

The deli is fantastic, but we wish they had longer hours. The restaurant is crisp, and the food is delicious. It's cozy inside and out, and they definitely care about quality.
