I own a home on island. Harrys is listed as #14 on BI according to Tripadvisor but that does not reflect reality. Many of the establishments listed as "restaurants" are take-out shacks and coffee shops with greasy food and gruff service.
I have eaten at Harry's in 2012 at least 20 times. The food is consistently fresh, well prepared and exact;y as ordered. The "from scratch" cornbread is a terrific start and they have a smart well priced wine list.
I like the fact that they serve until 10:30 every night which is at least an hour later than any other place on island and they do not rush you out when you arrive at 10:25. (we had dinner at the Manisses last week and they turned the lights out as we were finishing our dinner!).The physical appearance is all redone and sparkling. The cathedral ceilings keep the noise level down even on a busy night. They have many booths which are super comfortable and it is a mix of people old and young, islanders and tourists.
This is owner operated on a very professional level unlike most island restaurants. They deserve to be commended publicly for serving high quality, fresh food ...and the place hums with a positive vibe.
