Diner Reviews
  • "Harry's Seafood is one of our favorite places to take out of town guests!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "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 has great. The food was perfectly prepared. We dined on a Thursday night and it was very lively."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "My husband and I went to Harry's to celebrate our 41st wedding anniversary. We had been to Harry's before and had a wonderful experience both times. The food is fantastic as well as the service. Would highly recommend. ."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "First time I had been to Harry's in Wilmington at the Riverfront Marketplace. The atmosphere was great - dining outside on the waterfront - and the service was outstanding. Food was good, well prepared, solid beer and wine selection. I would recommend dining there and will dine there again."

  • "Went for dinner at Harry's Seafood Saturday night to celebrate our anniversary (as we do every year). This year was very disappointing, and has likely knocked HS from our list. Ordered seafood nachos for two as an appetizer ($28). About 1/3 of the chips were burned. Actually blackened and inedible. When the waitress removed the plate with the burned chips remaining she even questioningly joked whether we wanted to finish up the "burned chips". A disgrace for a $28 appetizer. I ordered a salad that was completely overdressed. My husband had an uninspired blacked catfish. Ordered coffee and dessert. Had to wait 7 minutes after dessert came for our coffee to arrive (hard to enjoy both at the same time.) Just disappointing overall."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "The restaurant was freezing so that was the first negative. The food was disguised with too many sauces and you could not get the full flavor of the fish. My big eye tuna entree was lukewarm when it was delivered to me and the fish was somewhat gray-looking. We also found the prices to be exorbitantly high for the quality of the food. Not going back."

  • "From the moment my wife and I were greeted; hostesses, bartender (Ashley) and Waiter (James{I know they're are several} this James had a beard in the late twenties) awesome staff and equally awesome food!"

  • "One of our most frequented restaurants in the area. Great sashimi platter and crab cakes were meaty and fresh. Was a bit disappointed by the soft shell crab preparation this time but would certainly return for another prep later in the season. "
