Description: 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.

My wife and I stop at Harry's whenever we are in Gainesville. I am addicted to their Cajun dishes -- especially their jambalaya and etouffee. My wife prefers their sandwiches. Pleasant pub-like atmosphere, great service, family friendly, and reasonable prices. We have always found nearby parking. Very little not to like!

Went for Friday dinner with reservations. Waited about 5 minutes, then seated in nice booth.
Service and food were great. Wine pours were a little lite, but otherwise the drinks were fine. Beer was cold in chilled glasses.

The food was excellent. Tilapia, trout, crab cakes, catfish, and shrimp and grits all were reported as very good. One of us had a Caesar salad which was very nice. Some of the meals had quite a kick, so ask your waiter about the level of spice "hotness" you enjoy. Will definitely come back when next in town..

Great place for lunch, and outdoor seating so we can bring Rusty the dog.
Blackened shrimp Tacos are great.
Very good service & rarely a wait after you order.
Not a place I would come for dinner really. Too loud with the bar & the piped in music.

I have been to Harry's a couple of times me a friend for lunch. The food was alright, the service was kind of slow. The "servers" seamed to be more concerned about talking together than keeping their customers satisfied. This is typical of this area as it is a college town.

Harry's was once a really good place to eat with great food. The past 2 times we visited it was just average. We just like it for the ambiance and drinks. It has a nice little location but now other restaurants have moved in. Maybe time to try a new place. This is very pricey for average food.
