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.

“Excellent food, outstanding service !!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

Had to go to Lakeland sunday and decided to have lunch at Harry's.... Wish we were closer, though it's probably best that we have to drive over an hour to get there, if we were closer we would be there more than once a week... it's that good !!!!!
We sat outside because it was a gorgeous day, Hanna took great care of us, she explained the menu and gave great suggestions which we took and did not regret.
The Shrimp and Grits ~as good as you get up in Savannah, Asheville, or BETTER, plenty of shrimp, great flavor.
The Catfish Pontchartrain ~omg.... I have never had better, loved it !! fresh fish, perfectly breaded and the etouffee sauce was unbelievable.
Even the bread and butter was delicious and not to be left out... the chocolate bread pudding, I was going to eat light because I knew I had to have it, well of course I was stuffed and was so upset because I just couldn't fit another bite.... Hanna was so sweet as to bring us a little sample and well... I can't wait to go back, already made plans to take some friends next week.
Did I mention that we had the Louisiana Fondeaux for appetizer, no regrets because it was delicious, but way too much for just 2 people...... but we are going back and we'll be 4 ~~YES!!!!!!

Very reasonably priced too, all that food, plus a 2 hurricanes and 1 margarita for just a bit over fifty, can't be beat !!!

“FRESH SEAFOOD, PERFECTLY PREPARED!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

We usually don't risk eating seafood at a restaurant so far from a coastline, but these folks obviously know how to get it flown in fresh and prepared perfectly.

Desserts were also top notch... Bananas Foster was among the best I've had and they're practically giving it away at $5.99!!

Cocktails weren't anything to rave about, but OK.

I had my Service Animal with me (a sizable German Shepherd) and he was welcomed; they even brought him a dog bowl of water. Nice touch.

“A decent little place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

Food and service is good in this popular downtwon spot. (A little secret, Lakeland has a dearth of really good, local restaurants.) The prices are reasonable and the portions are large - if you get the grit cakes, rice and beans with an entree, you'll be stuffed. The seafood is better than at the chains like Red Lobster. This is one of the better places downtown for decent, reasonably priced meal. The atmosphere is OK - try to get a booth.
