GREAT service, attentive manager and excellent wait staff! We had Mahi Mahi Arugula and a side dinner salad w/ house vinaigrette. The fish was cooked perfectly—flaky and moist. Key lime pie for dessert! Amazing meal + even better service! Ask for Chelsea!

I'm not a fan of Cajun food, however, I have been to Harry's for work sponsored luncheons and they do have a really good Mahi Mahi. IMHO, the place has a peculiar odor when you come in. The dining area rug could use a deep...More

A group of us go to Harry's at least once a month for lunch and usually the service is great and the food is always great! I haven't had anything that has not been excellent. And their bloody Mary's are the best!

It is mostly seafood and a number of rice and veggie sides. Things aren't labeled gluten free, but just take a look at the menu. Mahi Mahi with rice and vegetables would be one example. Blackened red fish. Voodoo Shrimp... More

Thank you for visiting Harry's Seafood Bar & Grille! A distinctively different menu, the food of Harry's Seafood Bar and Grille captures the essence of a city not only known worldwide as the birthplace of Jazz but also the birthplace of a unique style of cooking. We've taken the best of Cajun, Creole and Southern flavors infused with a current day twist to create some of our most popular dishes like Shrimp and Scallop Orleans, Grilled Chicken Baton Rouge, Crab Crusted Blackened Red Fish, Bourbon Street Salmon and French Quarter Beef Tenderloin to name a few.
