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.

“We look forward to this!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

We have been to Harry's several times in the past 3 years. Always yummy. We love the Louisiana atmospshere. We were seated in the bar area in a booth. It was pretty noisy and had 2 TV's, but we like that - we get to people watch.
My husband had Scallop and Shrimp Orleans - loved it. He usually gets the redfish dinner, which he also likes very much. I got a dinner salad (extra) that was just delicious, and the Shrimp Scampi. I ate about a third of my scampi, and brought the rest home for 2 more meals. The sauce is white, light and has a bit of a spice to it. Lots of shrimp perfectly cooked. Our waiter was very busy and forget to bring 2 different items I asked for (water, and later a spoon). But the service otherwise was wonderful.'
We went on a Saturday night - downtown Ocala was jumping with an outdoor concert.

“Unexpected find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

Having stopped overnight on our way to Orlando, we ask the desk at our motel to recommend a "non-chain" restaurant and she recommend Harry's. We were very pleasantly surprised. The downtown of Ocala is quaint and the decor of the restaurant pleasing. The service was excellent as was the food. If you are in the Ocala area, treat yourself at Harry's....you won't be sorry.

“Crab Corn Chowder - Wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

Stopped in for a quick lunch. Had the crab corn chowder and it was out of this world! Grilled shrimp salad for the main dish. Service was great! Food was great! Definitely going back the next time I'm in Ocala.

Took my sister there for dinner. She had the shrimp and I had pasta . Both were great. Service was excellent. Nice atmosphere. I go here every time I'm in Ocala.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

This was our first tri pto Harry's.
Our waitress (Christy) was first class and the food was great. We heard some dishes might be on the hot side so she brought us a sample to try. Not many reasturants will go to the trouble. She was only interested in making sure we enjpyed our meal. The Key Lime Pie was really good...tasted like home made not the sweet green colored stuff you usuall get. Will definately be back!
