  • Very pleased with our lunch
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 1/5/2009
    Very pleased with our lunch experience. It made celebrating a family event more special. This was our first visit and look forward to returning as there were many other menu items that sound interesting. The fried calamari was the best we've had; it was a melt-in-your-mouth experience. Bon Apetito!

    I was very impressed with the variety of items on the menu. I went with a large group and we were all pleased with our dishes. The menu has both raw and cooked offerings and some unique dishes. The wine list is helpful and organized for the novice, but has appeal to the sophisticated wine drinker as well. All in all a great restaurant.

    I had a craving for cioppino and I saw they had it on their menu. It was priced at $34, which I thought was a bit on the high side. It was not worth the price. It was good, but not a $34 dish.

    Overall dinner was very good. The waitress forgot to enter our appetizer order which was a bad start to the meal. We received our salads but the waitress did not check back with us until we got her attention. The restaurant did not offer us any comps like free desert to make up for their mistake. The table that we sat at was just outside the kitchen and my wife felt that at any moment one of the food trays would end up in her lap. The wait staff was inconsiderate by walking between our table and the one next to us which only added to her concern. Aside from these issues we will return to the restaurant because the food was very good.

    Open restaurant, lighting a bit dim but great for an adult dinner of two. I do not recommend for kids, there are not a lot of kid friendly dishes. Service is excellent and the wine list covers all bases. You will enjoy this restaurant!!! We were very happy with the service, food and wine. Prices not cheap but you get what you pay for.

    While I was expecting a nice meal, the "Nude Lobster" was just that and tuff. For $59.00 I expected something more than 3 potatoes, uncooked green beans and one tough lobster! Service was very nice, the large group of people at the next table were (singing carols during the meal) Hope they have better day jobs! The noise was unbeleivalbe, we were seated in the bar area. I have been to this resturant on a number of occasions, but this was too much.

    Harry's Seafood is a reliable choice for the most part, but the descriptions of the menu items are usually better than the food itself--execution is a little lacking. If you don't get ambitious in what you order, you will have a good experience. The place is quite noisy, so if you are looking for quiet/romantic, better go elsewhere.

    The ambiance was fantastic! The wait staff didn't miss a beat. Clearing our table, bringing new silverware after each course, clearing the table of crumbs and keeping our wine glasses full were all performed without a flaw. The food presentation is top notch, making you feel like you're in a 5 star restaurant in a big city. The hostess and waitress even accomodated me arriving early to drop off gifts that they kindly delivered with dessert for my date upon my request.

    Overall, a great experience. Initially, service was a little slow due to the large number of large tables seated for the Holidays, but once our waiter realized we were seated things imporoved dramatically. Great wine list and excellent food. We would definitely return for another meal.

    We love your restaurant...the food is the best seafood in the area. Every visit has been excellent including service. Only one exception in service and that was Friday night, Nov 21st. The gentleman who served us was not up to the standards that we normally expect from your restaurant, not quite as attentive as we are used to. However, he made an EXCELLENT wine recommendation. But it may have been an off night too..that happens. We'll still continue coming to your wonderful restaurant.

    I traveled from DC to Delaware to meet a friend for dinner I had found Harry's on line. I would not recommend Harry's to anybody.... It's a nice place. However, they need to hire some real chefs. The food is quite bland, and portions are quite small. If Harry's is going to charge 26 dollar for Halibut, it need to a little bigger.. Salmon 22 dollars...?? Salmon can be bought for 7 dollars a pound! I was quite disapponited to say the least.

Everyone enjoyed the meal and the service was excellent. It is hard to find places where everyone can really hear what is happening.

    The service was great the food was good. I know going to a "Seafood Grill" you would expect seafood but other dishes for the non seafood lovers would be welcome. In other words - too specialized - not enough verity for the non seafood lovers who agree to take us seafood lovers there for our special occasions. A little more beef, a little more chicken and maybe a little pasta would be welcome. Won't be able to come back since my husband doesn't like seafood like I do. A few more secluded, quiet corners would be welcome. Almost all seating are tables in the middle of the floor
