“Excellent Steak and Shrimp Cocktail”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012

We tried to get into St Elmo’s next store but could not. We settled for this restaurant and I don’t believe that the other restaurant could be any better. The service from the time we walked up to the desk to tell them we had a reservation was excellent. They have a coat room where you can leave briefcases and coats which is very nice. We had appetizers and dinner. The calamari and St Elmo’s fire shrimp were excellent. The shrimp cocktail because of the fresh horseradish was the best I have ever had. The steaks and sides were excellent. All food was cooked to perfection with a wait staff that was present but not overbearing. The wait staff did not try to push you out to turn the table.

“Downtown Harry and Izzys”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012

I have been there a number of times. Food is excellent ! Wait staff are also very good. I have never had an issue in the place. I like the bar area. You really cant go wrong with selecting this place. The place has a lot of charm. So you asking why I am just now writing this review after having been there a number of times? Well its like this. I finally ordered and tried the " Great " shrimp cocktail everyone has been bragging about. Im going to be kind and just say you better " LOVE" HORSERADISH !!!!! Because all I can say is a WOW !!! I couldnt breathe for like two minutes after my first bite. Very Strong ! You have been warned . But being honest with you the place is great , just be prepared for the horseradish !

“Northside Harry and Izzys”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2012

A party of 7 of us dined at Harry and Izzy's northside restaurant recently and thouroughly enjoyed the entire evening. The staff were extremely helpful and always prompt. We met the manager James, also and he was very friendly, cordial and welcoming. The food was really fantastic as we all enjoyed the shrimp cocktail and the famous St. Elmo's sauce. It is my understanding the same family owns St. Elmo's and they are sister restaurants. Steaks were cooded to perfection, although one was cooked too rare, so the waitress remedied it in a couple minutes. The beet salad was the best I have ever eaten and beet salad is one of my favorites. The cowboy ribeyes were huge and very tasty with perfect marbling of the meat. My wife had the salmon and it was perfect in all aspects and huge. The desserts were amazing with the chocolate brownie the best but just barely better than the turtle cheesecake. We will return many times to this fine restaurant.

“EXCELLENT DINNER!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

I recently went to Harry & Izzy's for dinner while traveling on business. 5 of us had a fantastic dinner there. The shrimp cocktail is GREAT! We took the reccomendation of others on TripAdvisor on that one. The service was also great....always available but not on TOP of you...just the way it should be!

“Comfortable and welcoming and great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

My husband and I have eaten at this restaurant several times, ALWAYS ordering their amazing shrimp cocktail. We have never been disappointed by our waiter(waitresses) nor the food. To our amazement and pleasure, the same service and quality dining was delivered to our company Christmas party. We came away determined to make reservations at Harry and Izzy's for next year's party. ( parking in the Circle Center garage below made it a slam dunk).
