Great birthday celebration

Thanks to our waitress Tracy for making our five year old grandsons birthday so special. The seafood at Harry's Old place is out of this world and the service was excellent. We had such a wonderful time! Great restaurant ...wonderful food.

Harry's Old Place is very popular and often has a line waiting for the doors to open. They do not take reservations. There are many seafood selections and the fish can be prepared in a variety of ways. There are non-seafood options as well. I had a generous portion of fried haddock that came with a salad and a choice... More

The restaurant opens at 5 and a line starts forming about 4. Come early, come late but be prepared to wait. They are best known for their fish but everything is excellent. Grouper in a bag is my personal favorite. The prices are good, the service good and the food excellent. Highly recommend!

Harry's is a Winter Haven landmark. Their food is always fresh and the wait staff friendly. They have a wide selection of seafood and specialty dishes each day and evening. They do not take reservations. But any wait you have is worth it. We also enjoy visiting their food truck Tallulah's when it's at an event.

Harry's friendly atmosphere & great food attracts an overflow crowd most nites so they may sell out the special if you aren't there early. They open at 5 pm sharp & there's usually quite a lineup. The servers are knowledgeable & attentive. The ambience is charming, the food excellent & the cost reasonable. It's a great traditional style restaurant with... More

Had a fantastic meal. Short but excellent wine list. Great wines were not only good but we'll priced. Harry in the bag & the Grouper special were very good. If you can't decide then get this. Also the onion rings looked great and the peel and eat shrimp was awesome. Only downside was are waitress really had no clue how... More

I did a search to find fried oysters for my husband. That led us to this restaurant. It is truly an "old place" and the day we were there we both could smell a strange odor. The oysters were OK but a rather small portion. I had the grilled haddock which was good. Neither of us liked the French fries... More

Fine dining in a quaint family friendly atmosphere. Only a mile and a half from LEGOLAND this comfy restaurant offers some a variety of fair including seafood as good as you'll find on the New England shore. Escargot is remarkable and the scallops are as good as the Bay of Fundy ever produced. Situated on the lakeside, this local favorite... More

Like many people who find themselves in Winter Haven, we went on a family vacation to Legoland. After a few meals at Legoland hotel, we were looking for something else. Something local. Harry's place, unlike Legoland, is not kid-centric but it is pretty kid friendly if you have kids who are used to eating out and like seafood. It seems... More
