We went here based on Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed. The restaurant is on the lake in a residential area and is fairly basic in terms of decor but don't let that put you off. We arrived at around 7. 30pm and expected a long wait as they don't take reservations, we were pleasantly surprised when we were seated immediately, guess we were just lucky it was one of their slower nights. The appetisers of seafood chowder and steamed mussels were excellent, the bread was nothing special. There was a blackboard with a plethora of fresh fish available as well as the normal menu, after much deliberation we ordered grouper with wild rice and salad and a seafood platter served with new potatoes and fresh vegetables. The quality and quantity of the fish was mouth watering, we enjoyed every bite. It's not particularly cheap but compared to some of the "trendy" fish restaurants around it was excellent value for money. Don't go here looking for a romantic setting, it's just a little bit of fish heaven at a good price, we will definitely return.

Went back to Harry's three weeks in a row to try everything I wanted.
Started with the Baked French Onion Soup and I can see why it's a FAVORITE !
Shrimp basket with french fries was more than enough to fill me up.
Well worth the 22 mile drive to get there.

Great dinner, service and atmosphere. Traveled from Orlando, worth the drive. My husband had Pescatore loaded with seafood. I had Haddock that was prepared perfectly. The hush puppies were yummy.

Harry's puts out some of the best prepared sea food around. It is always fresh and unique in its presentation. The place is always packed, does not take reservations, so one must wait in line to get a table. The place is a little worn and could use a major up lift to its decor. It is not a large restaurant, but the food is good.

Finding good fresh seafood in central Florida is a bit difficult. We were pleasantly surprised by our dining experience at Harry's. The restaurant is located in a residential area on lake Ned. The place is cozy & inviting. We had garlic shrimp appetizer, snapper, snow crab, scallops, lobster tail combo & cod fish/chips. All the seafood was cooked perfectly & flavorful. The staff is friendly & efficient. Even Harry's there serving the food. The prices are very reasonable too. Not sure if they take reservations & the place gets pretty busy.
