    When my husband and I want seafood the first choice is always Harry's Seafood Restaurant! My go to meal that I can never go wrong with is the Lobster Bib Salad! With its chunks of lobster meat and tomato and avocado, it is truly a winner! My husband loves the scallops, always sweet and cooked to perfection. My favorite appetizers are the stone crab claws when they are in season. We were happily surprised that they were back this past Saturday night! We also get there superior oysters on a half shell from Washington state and Maine. There wine selection is awesome as well. And by the way, we always ask for Marvin to be our waiter! He has been working at Harry's for 9 years and he is so professional and fun at the same time! Go to Harry's!

    It was rainy, therefore not a great time for eating outdoors. We enjoyed the food and the view from a nice little booth near the bar and the window outside. It is always a treat to take visitors to this place. We both had lobster--me the salad and my friend the roll. We were both pleased with the food and the service. It was 12:30, but quiet for a Friday lunch.

    The meal started with a light, tasty spinach salad. The dressing was light and very delicious. The salmon and rainbow trout on a bed of wild rice were done just right and the portions were ample for the 2 of us. the background music was a light loud, but not sure if this is the normal sound level for the bar. The main dining area may have been quieter and more scenic.

    The food was very good, although I thought it was strange that I had to ask for melted butter and lemon for the grilled shrimp I had with my filet. My firiend had the choppino and said it was delicious. The broth was excellent! Ther server was good but could have been a little more attentive. The place was quite noisy.

    I ordered flowers & I was the hit of the night with having my Wife's birthday dinner with your establishment. It could not have been any better in any way but you should try to couple in a bakery for birthday cakes so I would have nothing to do but push buttons. Just kidding it was fantastic.

    Service was mediocre at these prices, I should not have to wait more than 5 minutes for a glass of wine! My meal was well prepared and very tasty however again at top dollar I felt stunted on my filet that looked like the half of a butterflied filet and the surf in turf in turf were a measly 3 shrimp! The final jab was getting a happy birthday written in caramel on our dessert plate when in fact it was our anniversary. I noted that on the open table reservation! So much for upscale!

    The four of us immensely enjoyed our various seafood dinners, and the white wine flight was a hit, as it gave each of us a chance to try different ones with different parts of our meal. Our server was very attentive and we couldn't of asked for more, except for a little more cooperation from the weather which made it a better choice to sit inside. Harry's outdoor dining space is lovely and we had hoped to enjoy that for the evening.

    we had the lobster rolls and they are usia;;y a lunch time item but they were happy to accommodate us at an early dinner. The rolls and chock full of big lumps of lobster and really delicious . My companion and I are lobster fans and really enjoyed them. They come with crisp potato chips which are not good for you but sure taste good. We had an enjoyable meal.

    We were warmly welcomed back for the lunch prior to our first Wednesday matinee of the 2014-15 season at Delaware Theater Co, seated immediately, James our server remembered our names from other times that he served us, reviewed changes since our last visit, offered recommendations based on previous times, anticipated and answered questions for the 7 of us all with the warmest smile coupled with a gentle demeanor. The food was wonderful, every dish was as promised, all served at the right temperature at the same time. The sautéed croaker and the blackened scallop cobb salad were excellent. Each dessert was delectable especially fond of the very berry martini with the freshest of berries and homemade whipped cream.

    We continue to dine at Harry's Seafood Grill for special occasions. Again we were not disappointed with an excellent meal for my daughter's birthday. All the food items were well prepared and tasty, the waiter's skill added to the meal by offering good advice and being there when we needed him but not interfering with the birthday celebration. We'll keep coming back.

    We all enjoyed our dinners. All fish dishes were well prepared! Our server was excellent, very personable and accommodating! I would have liked to sit outside,but it was too chilly. The noise inside made hearing across the table a little difficult. I would recommend candles or lower table lighting to make the ambiance more romantic.

    Harry's Seafood Grill has always been a favorite, however we were disappointed this last visit. Although the restaurant was not crowded, service was slow. My fish was over done and dry and came without the poblano crema and pickled jalopenos as described on the menu. My husband's crabcake dinner was bland and lacking the usual accompaniments. We hope that it was just an off night. It would be sad to lose one of our tried and true favorites.

    We went to your restaurant because the advertisements were so enticing. We invited my daughter & her husband to join us. Had a great booth in the corner, so we were able to drown out the noise and it was as if we had our own little corner of the "world." Service was great & very friendly. Enjoyed the food very much. BIG problem was directions were horrible & drove around & around until my daughter saw our car. We managed to find their car so followed them. Hostess on the telephone was trying to be helpful but could not get us there. Extremely frustrating!!!! You need to somehow put definite directions on line. So, I don't know if we would go back because it was so difficult to find Harry's Seafood Grill. We did enjoy our dinners.

    Arrived to be welcomed to a pleasant outdoor table on the patio with a nice view of the river. I felt the table was per my request - something intimate. The service was prompt asking if we cared for drinks, menus, etc. Initially service was overbearing and then fell off just before food came. I had wanted to order a bottle of wine to go with dinner but wasn't asked, and server was MIA. I finally flagged down another server for the wine but by the time the wine came the food had been there for a while. Later things got a little better because I think the server I flagged down understood I wasn't thrilled. Food was great and drinks too. Dessert was good as well. Definitely a great place and love it, just a bit of a hiccup on the service.

    Harry's has long been my favorite restaurant. Due to a life situation, I had not been there for a few months. I found the experience was not what I remembered it to be. The clams were outstanding for a starter, but both of our main dishes were almost greasy. Desert was very good. We were just slightly disappointed.

    Visited here for restaurant week and have been here before. Usually excellent food. Not so impressed with the restaurant week food. We checked out the menu online before going and one of the two offered dinner choices was changed to a different fish. I'm sure there was a good reason, just not as impressed with drum fish, it's very tough. The shrimp dish served three shrimp, one was undercooked. We were there on a Friday and the bar was jumping and fun. We just wished they had put a little more into the restaurant week menu dishes. We brought someone along who had never been there before and it was a bit disappointing. The past couple of times we visited before this visit, the servers are attentive but not very friendly.

    We'd never been to Harry' Seafood, but we had a gift card, so we thought we'd give it a shot. Over many years we'd b en to Harry's Savoy on Naaman Road, quite close to where we live, and found it unremarkable. So we were quite surprised and delighted to find that Harry's Seafood had much better ambiance, delicious, well-prepared food, and really excellent service. And what a nice setting, to boot.

    Food, particularly the crabcakes and seafood nachos, were disappointing for the price point. Crabcake was overcooked on the outside (black charred) and had more tasteless filling than crab meat. Have had much better experiences at this restaurant than we had during this most recent visit. I hope this was just an off night because this restaurant has been a favorite-- but the food was so off that I would no longer consider this restaurant at the top of my list for future dinners.

    We were visiting the area and found Harry's on Open Table. Great spot - although it was a little hard to find using Google Maps on phone. We were promptly seated at a very nice table overlooking the river and river walk. We both enjoyed our meal of crab cakes and the crab and artichoke appetizer. If we lived in the area we would want to visit regular. We highly recommend Harry's Seafood and Grill to anyone.
