We were having a lovely dinner and were happy to get in without a wait or reservation. There were only two of us. My family member that I was with is in a wheelchair and needed assistance going to use the bathroom. I told our...waiter that we were not finished and would be back to continue eating. When we returned are platters gone as well as drinks. We do not drink alcohol. The waiter handed us our check and did not ask us if we wanted dessert or anything else. I asked about our platters and blamed his bussers/runners. Being in the industry, I tipped but we are dissapoointed. I know the manager was more interested to turning over the dining room than customer service. Still will return, but having reservations. Food was 5 star...service was 1 or 2.More

We always loved Harrys...especially Happy Hour with dollar oysters which is gone. The Nachos with Crab is still very good but entrees not so much. I had the broiled seafood combo and it was just ok. My wife had the Bang Shrimp and it was...also just ok. We do like the outdoor seating.....may go back if they bring back Happy Hour.More

Visited Harry’s twice this summer. Ate outside once and at the bar the second time when it was too hot outside. Can’t say more about the serving staff, they were terrific. Enthusiastic and excited to be working and dealing with actual people! Friendly, knowledgeable, respectful...and attentive without hovering. The oysters were fresh and there was large selection. A full menu, although they didn’t have the Lobster Roll or Lobster Tail either time - supply chain issues. When the weather cooperates, sitting outside is a delightful experience. Breezes off the ocean with sun, or under an umbrella if you prefer. Will be returning in a few weeks.More

Menu items unavailable & what was served wasn’t even cooked. It’s a place for drinks but definitely not food.

I've had their fish and chips a few times and they are great. Service great too. This time tried the Oysters Rockefeller. In about an hour or so was sick the rest of the day.

You can’t get through on the phone. All they say is “please hold.” We walked all the way from the Hard Rock and we were on “hold” the entire time!! We arrived and the hostess was standing there texting!! It went downhill from there. We...went at 12 noon on a Friday. Slow service, out of lobster roll, out of chicken salad (so no famous fried oysters & chicken salad platter) and so on. The owner opened a new steakhouse at Resorts, and I suspect he took all the top servers from his other places in order to staff the new steakhouse. This place went downhill. We used to go every time we visited AC, but never again.More
