    We were traveling with the Tennessee Titans for their game vs. the Philadelphia Eagles and Harry's was a recommended place for dinner. We were, certainly, not disappointed. The ambiance and "buzz" was evident when we arrived on a Saturday night. We had a reservation at 8:00 and only had to wait five minutes before being seated - the place was full - ALWAYS a good sign. Our waiter was knowledgeable about his menu and his suggestions proved awesome. I had the Big Eye Tuna - to die for. My wife had the Snapper dinner.... she's usually a little picky but there wasn't a crumb left afterward. We split an Apple Crisp for dessert - awesome! We would highly recommend Harrys to ANY taste - especially if you like seafood!

    We will definitely return next month before the Wednesday Matinee performance at the Delaware Theater Company. The newest dessert - Rum Raisin Pumpkin bread pudding was generously portioned and allowed for sharing, absolutely wonderful, lots of flavor. The blackened scallop cobb salad was delicious, will order that entrée salad again. Dishes for 6 diners arrived at the same time and at the right temperature. Service from a new server was impeccable, every thing arrived exactly as requested, dessert sharing was made easy.

    It was very cold and very noisy, hard to hear our own conversation when we were assured we would be fine. The salmon was very rare and lobster salad was just ok. Stacie was lovely and I would be more disappointed but our guest was delightful. I will give then another chance.

    Seafood foodies will enjoy it --- only token meat items on menu. But the seafood was wonderful. Both the king salmon (where the boat and captains were noted on menu) and the Cajun rainbow trout were excellent. Stone crabs were in the house and the cracking was excellent, did not even need the personal cracker that came with them --- sauce lacked the zing I am used to, may need an imported Dijon or more of the one they are using. Reasonable wine list

    The fish and seafood at Harry's never disappoints. The fish is not only very fresh, but the preparation is creative and the variety is top notch. We absolutely love the ceviche appetizers and have tried them all. Harry's is one of our favorite restaurants in the area.

    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.

    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 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 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.
