We are used to extremely good and attentive service at Harry however, this was not the case last evening. Our server was not overly engaged or personable with us … and he seemed preoccupied at times. Our appetizer order was incorrect as well in that we asked for two additional shrimp in our shrimp cocktail, but did receive them.

It was our first time. We were celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary. It was only a five minute walk from our hotel. The servers were friendly and atmosphere was great. NY steak the izzy way and salmon was so delicious! The famous spicy shrimp cocktail definitely was a wake up experience!

Quick visit to Indianapolis for the first time. Friend said we should try harry & Izzy's. We LOVED our shrimp cocktail (the horseradish was SO FRESH), steak and the dessert was to die for! Thank you for a great experience.

This is one of my favorite places to eat. This experience was not nearly as good as all the previous ones. Service was slow, my steak wasn’t cooked to my liking, and the price didn’t match the quality. I will be coming back, just hope for a better experience.

I have eaten at the Harry and Izzys on the north side multiple times. I have always had a great meal and service. Unfortunately the downtown location was a little disappointing. I’m sure some of it has to do with lack of staffing and maybe our server was newer, but the lack of attention to what we asked for during ordering was not up to the normal standard I would have expected. We came in for lunch and ordered a couple shrimp cocktails. We then proceeded to order our meal. Both my daughter and I wanted to 6oz filet on the lunch menu. I asked if it came with a side. She stated the sliders did not come with sides. I explained I wanted to filet and not sliders and she stated only the special menu gave me that option, so that’s what I ended up choosing. My daughter didn’t care about sides so she was fine ordering the filet by itself. Again the server said something about sliders. My daughter directed her the menu and pointed out the 6oz filet. When she gets her meal it was a slider. Since she did not deliver our meal we had to wait a while to correct it. She did finally come with my daughters filet and it was delicious. Just a somewhat disappointing experience after having amazing prior experiences.

We got seated 15 minutes after our reservation. We sat at our table for 10 minutes and the waitress/waiter never showed up. A young man gave us water, and that was the only positive. Won’t go back.

Pre concert appetizers, dinner and drinks. My wife and I split the Shrimp Cocktail, Crab Meignets and the Prime Steakburger. Both appetizers were fantastic. The Steakburger was simply ok. In my opinion, bland and too dry.

Our dinner was delicious! Grayson was a wonderful server! We did arrive 15 minutes early for our reservation (traffic wasn’t a problem as we thought it might be) and we were told it would still be 6:30 before we would be seated. Funny though, the table we were seated at was empty the whole time we were waiting. I’m going to assume it was a staffing issue I hope, and that we weren’t just made to wait just because we arrived early.

It was my daughter’s 6th birthday and JB (the manager) had all the employees sign a card for her! And she accommodated us since we wanted to sit outside (in the rain under awning). She really took the extra step to make sure we were comfortable. Jay was our server and he was great to chat with and very knowledgeable about the menu. I literally ordered what he recommended and loved it (ribeye and shrimp appetizer). Food was amazing! He brought out a candle too with our dessert. Can’t say enough about the high level of care and hospitality. Thank you JB, Jay and the staff of Harry and Izzy’s.

First off Jordan rocks. Best service we have had in a long time. Great attitude! The food was outstanding! I had the cowboy ribeye. Jordan said you could cut it with a butter knife and she wasn’t kidding. My wife had the filet and it was cooked to perfection. We will be back!
