“Good food but a bit slow”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

My family and I had great food at Harry's. Prices were reasonable, and we enjoyed the atmosphere. My only complaints were (1) that the food was slow in coming and (2) the relatively small wait staff. First, our food took about 45 minutes to arrive. When it arrived, it was hot and delicious, but thank goodness for the complimentary bread before the meal. Otherwise, we would have been starving. Secondly, our waitress was obviously stretched to the limit since she had so many tables. Her service was great though. All in all, we would eat there again. Be forewarned that the po boys are HUGE! I had planned to try the Bananas Foster but couldn't because I was so stuffed.

“Crab cakes, mmmm!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

We ate inside because it was cold out. Service was really slow, but the food was well worth the wait. The homemade butter that comes with the bread was amazing! I am still craving the crab cakes! Next time we hope to eat outside, where the atmosphere was fun, with live music!

“Very busy but very good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

We actually got a seat indoors on a night threatening rain, while everyone else wanted the outdoor couryard seats. Was about a 45 minute wait to be seated, but wre told upfront that it would be 90 minutes. Goo services, very good food, I recommend the shrimp scampi!

“Everyone enjoyed!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

First of all, go EARLY! Harry's is VERY popular at all hours of the day, especially for the large courtyard dining. We arrived at 5:30 and got a wonderful table. Within 45 minutes there was over an hour wait (and there are a couple of dining rooms indoors)!
My husband said his sea scallops were "the best" and he loves scallops! We were all quite satisfied with all our entrees. The atmosphere is lively and the" live entertainment" male singer was very good and sang all styles of songs to please everyone.
The wine list is good, prices fair and service was excellent and attentive even though every table was taken.

“Superb food and service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

There were 8 in our party on New Years Eve. We were seated within 15 minutes of our arrival. The service and seafood was fresh and wonderful. Everyone in our party talked about what excellent food we had and our waiter was also excellent. We will return when we visit this beautiful city again.
