Dined at Harris' Place August 19th, 2016. Magically caught Cynthia between summer vacation and seasonal shut down. Service was great, meal was great: Lobster Brisk, Garlic Bread, Salad with Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing, Lobster, Beans & Rice, plus desert. Be careful when ordering lobster, the quality and preparation will be great. The size determines dinner cost which ranges from $35... More

Having been to both Harris' and Sidney's over the years I definitely preferred Harris'. Lobster was huge and amazing and every side dish was fantastic from the lobster bisque to the bread to the veggies. Only knock is it is slow, we were there almost 2 hours before we got our main course. It was fantastic but by that time... More

Enjoyed some quiet drinks in the shade of their restaurant/bar while visiting While Bay. Needed to get away from the crowds next door. Great service, Friendly, Professional and worth a stop.

Our five course meal was great.The bar-b-que and grilled fish- with the personal touch of Cynthia-could not have been better. We ended up in Little Harbor by default as there were no mooring balls available but here. Will make it a scheduled stop from now on. Cynthia is a jewel.Best kept secret on Jost Van Dyke.

Interesting history of Harris' Place; pulled into harbor at Jost Van Dyke and after meeting Cynthia the owner of the restaurant we decided to eat at her place. What a great choice! Food was fantastic..we had a party of five and ordered lobster, conch, grouper and the BBQ special. Best lobster ever, was so tender. Also phenomenal drinks. Cynthia puts... More

After having dinner at another place, we went over to Harris' for dessert. Cynthia is famous for homemade desserts and she did not disappoint. We had the key lime pie and it was great. She is a hoot as well and talked with us and told stories for a long time. We will likely go to Harris' for dinner the... More

We were the only yacht at this end of little harbour so thought we had better book table in case they didn't open! Service as always was exceptional and meal included the lobster bisque and Caribbean salad followed by choice of mains but overall compared to other places the food was just okay and not special

Picked up a mooring ball in Little Harbor and Cynthia came out to collect the mooring fee. She is a hard working woman and invited us to her restaurant . She treated us like guest in her own home, and gave us excellent service. I ordered the grouper, and it was probably one of he best prepared pieces of fish... More
