Diner Reviews
  • "As always food, drinks, service were excellent. Perfect weather For eating outside made the experience A+."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "The food was served fresh and very well prepared. You have the ability to have the food tailored to your particular taste. All the seafood is caught within 24 hour before being brought to your table. The menu is always changing depending on the seafood available that day. The portion size is generous. The salmon was on the petite side and a bit over cooked. The waiter was very attentive. Great place to go for a first date or a special occasion, During the summer months definitely worth waiting to dine outside,"

  • "Very friendly staff and always a good selection of fresh seafood."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • " I was accompanied by two seafood lovers and the selection of the restaurant was a no brainer - I however did think there might be a better selection of non fish items. Rabbit is a non selection and pricing half of a chicken breast at $30. is obscene. I opted for the Petite Steak and 4 Shrimp. It was accompanied with "French toast" and 4 strips of tough asparagras. The steak also had melted cheese of some variety which was greyish in color accompanied by a berry and onion "relish". The price of $42.95 was ridiculous even for an upscale restaurant. I do not think I will be coming back to Harry's at the Waterfront. Did I mention we were celebrating our 55th wedding anniversary? Needless to say we will celebrate our 56th at Harry's."

  • "I enjoyed the surf and turf. The crab cake was perfect without a sauce. The steak was thinner than expected but tasty."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "The wine selection is superb! Appetizers are generous enough to share, salads were very fresh and the entre was cooked to perfection!"
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • " I have to say that my experience this time was not as good as last year. Perhaps it was the choices on the menu, what happened to US fish???..there were fish on the menu that i had never heard of and i am pretty familiar with fish. The scallops were local and very good, but pricey and skimpy. Other members of the party had soft shell crabs that were meaty, but sauteed in a sauce that was too spicy....it did not say that they were in a spicy sauce. Slaw was spicy, too. Clams for the appetizer were very good, but broth was too salty. Desserts had no in season fruity style desserts.....apple crisp was mostly crisp."

  • "Wonderful meal. Seafood was fresh, presentation was nice, and food was exceptional. Pricey as others have noted. Patio dining was pleasant. Bar was noisy as any bar would be on a Saturday night. Service was quick and attentive without being intrusive."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Harry's Seafood seems to have slipped a couple of notches over the past year. Service has been very lax on our last two visits and food items have been over cooked (eg. soba noodles served with big eye tuna have been over cooked to a near-mushy state 3x). It's too bad as this has been our favorite go-to restaurant for nearly 10 years."

    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Beautiful day, not too hot, dining on potted flowers adorned deck under awning, facing the Christiana River is the perfect setting more a great leisurely meal. Our server, Bruce, was outstanding, and very knowledgeable, about the mine items and their ingredients and preparation, the river, and we suspect a lot more. Crab cake salad was a thing of beauty. Fresh oysters selected with help from Bruce were out of this world, with a champagne vinegar mignonette. The soft shell crab with a spicy slaw was just enough to complement the oysters. Fresh crusty bread, sliced and warm, was also provided. If the outside had been full. Or if weather prohibited, the inside decor is very inviting, every bit as nice."

  • "Lunch at Harry's is great. The choices are many and varied. So much fresh seafood from which to choose. Had the blackened scallop Cobb salad -- delicious! When I asked for a Bloody Mary, our server asked if I had a choice of Vodka. When I asked for an American one, he brought it with a Vodka made in Delaware -- how much more local could it be!! Good wine choices as well. And, did I mention how attentive Matt, our server, was? He was great!!"

  • "I went here with a group of 6 people for dinner and it was the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion- great food and a delightful riverfront dining experience if you're lucky enough to be able to sit outside. They did not "take requests" for outdoor seating ahead of time for some reason, so when we arrived, we asked to be seated outside as there appeared to be plenty of space, but were initially told we couldn't. We practically had to beg to be seated out there, and our request was finally accommodated by the waitress (host staff said they had a large party coming, even though they say outdoor seating is first-come, first-served when making reservations). Overall, waitstaff provided excellent service, but not so much host staff."

  • "Harry's Seafood is one of our favorite places to take out of town guests!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "It is always a pleasure dining at Harry's. This time I found the crabcake to be not as good and flavorful as in the past. Not as much backfin and lots more filler. At these very high prices I expected more."

  • "Harry's Seafood has great. The food was perfectly prepared. We dined on a Thursday night and it was very lively."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Such a lovely setting on the water, but unfortunately the food is subpar. The side dishes are lackluster, the quality is average especially the shrimp which tasted off, and the desserts are awful. We sent two back ( undercooked apples in the crisp and rock hard, dry butter cake) and we have a sweet tooth. It could be so much better."

  • "Dinner, service & atmosphere is always a 10! Every birthday, anniversary and special occasion is celebrated at Harry's."

  • "Dinner on Saturday for 7 people. Appetizers were great, service was great. Steamed Clams portugese style and ceviche was almost as good as the steamed shrimp in Old Bay bucket. Dinner entrees a bit pricey, great environment and waiter was very good."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We had a wonderful seafood dinner at one of the outside tables. The wine was very nice and went extremely well with dinner. It was a pleasant Friday summer evening with a gentle breeze. The river view of the rowers was lovely. All in all, another wonderful dinner at Harry's Seafood."

  • "I had just arrived from Houston and we headed to Harry’s Seafood Grill. I had arrived previously but didn’t have reservations and they couldn’t guarantee a quick seating so this time booked a table. I was not disappointed. Although we arrived early we got seated immediately. The choice of seafood was excellent. I tried the Ceviche sample and was impressed by the flavors. Then on to the trout which also was cooked to perfection. We shared a dessert which culminated a great meal. Not too forget the the wines which by the glass was a reasonable selection. Nice evening and great food. The server was very personable. I would go back."

  • "Food is exquisite. Service is great. Introduced to a new favorite Malbec from Zuccardi. If you love seafood, you must try Harry's on the Wilmington waterfront. Not easy to find w/ limited parking but more than worth the time for the gastronomic experience."

  • "Even when I dumped my rhubarb crisp desert on white pants, the server was there in an instant with lemon juice and club soda. Crisis averted!"

  • "While we didn't recognize a lot of things from the menu, they tasted wonderful! I highly recommend it, we had a wonderful experience!"

  • "Not my first time here, but my first time reviewing. Food is excellent, I'd argue it's the best seafood in Wilmington. The service at the bar was mediocre, but the table service was excellent. Not a place you'd go for an intimate dinner, as the dining room is large -- great place for groups or business dinners."

  • "We have frequently visited Harry's Seafood Grill. The food this time was memorable. I had the Wolf Fish with English Peas. The Cheese Cake was fantastic. It was Sautéed and prepared to perfection. John did a great job with the service. My Friends felt it was the most memorable dinner of their two week visit to the Mid Atlantic. Well Done!"
