The food was fantastic, we both got 8oz steaks medium. I got mine Oscar Style? Had a special sauce with some crab on it, I highly recommend it. We also got fried green tomatoes on the side and it was fantastic also. Afterwards we had a fancy brownie of sorts and it was hands down worth every penny we paid for it. Be prepared for an expensive night, comparable to Ruth Chris, or St. Elmo's. Service was great also! Our waitress(Jessica?) got us in/out in less than an hour during busy dinner time on a Saturday night. 9/10. Would overspend on food again :)

Went to the restaurant following the Crossroads Classic. The atmosphere was casual, but classy. I first had the shrimp cocktail at St. Elmo's in 1975, and still love it. I introduced it to my daughter and my other daughter's boyfriend. They loved it too. The steaks were tender, and the bread pudding was to die for. It was a great evening.

Usually I am a huge fan of this establishment, tonight I was very disappointed. Our large party had to wait almost 20 extra minutes for our reservation. We had our server showed up quickly to take our drink orders,etc. Our main course was almost served an hour after we got there which almost made us late to our event. Unfortunately, some of the sliders were cold as well as the fries. The prime rib sandwiches were not as great as we used to rave about. Even the shrimp cocktail was a little chewy. The French onion soup was basically cheese on soggy bread with little broth. I used to love coming here but was definitely disappointed on this visit. Our server was attentive, but even she got the bills messed up. For the prices, it wasn't worth it this round. Sorry H&I but this was not good....

We took our employees out for our annual Christmas dinner. The food & service was outstanding! We had a large party, but we received any and everything we asked for as a if it was a party of two. Our employees said the same: food was delicious and they never felt as if they waited for anything requested. We will definitely be back in the future.

My husband and I enjoyed dinner at Harry & Izzy’s after attending the Yuletide Celebration. The grilled root beer maple glazed bacon appetizer served with corn cakes was fantastic. We both enjoyed pear cider and their famous prime rib sandwich which was delicious. Our server Mohamed was very knowledgeable and pleasant. We will definitely return to Harry & Izzy’s for a special evening out! 🍽🎄

I ordered my prime rib sandwich medium rare and it was definitely medium to well done. However, the shrimp cocktail was excellent.
I believe the others in the party were okay with their meals.

Everything was wonderful. The only reason I gave the food 4 stars rather than 5 is because the red skin potatoes were not very warm at all.

We had an overall fantastic experience. The servers and staff were extremely accomodating on a very busy day (big ten championship). The food was delicious and the atmosphere was great before the big game. Would highly recommend for any special occasion or fun night on the town.

We were having lunch for my husbands birthday. From the moment we walked into the restaurant, everything was perfect. Our server, Jordan, was extraordinary! Along with being my husbands birthday, it was also the day of the Big 10 Championship game. The place was pack, but we were treated as if we were the most important guest in the place. Thank you everyone for making this part of a magical birthday experience. We will be back!

Our experience at Harry and Izzys was not never good. The menu is extremely overpriced compared to the quality of food. I have had as good, if not better, steaks at Outback and Texas Road House, for half of the price of Harry and Izzys. Also our service was terrible. Our waitress, knew being only a party of 2, that her tip would be smaller based on our total bill. She gave us that service accordingly. I will never go back to Harry and Izzys nor will I recommend it to anyone.

The service was severely lacking for a restaurant at this price point. We barely saw our server, never had a refill. The food wasn’t anything to right home about. I mean, the steak was good (as it should be for the price). However, both my husband & myself had cold, gummy mashed potatoes. No way to send back when your server doesn’t return until time to pay.
We came, we saw......we won’t return.

Other than the incredibly loud, inappropriate and drunk table of 8 next to us that had been at the Colts game all day...it was great. Just a little disappointed that we were trying to celebrate my girlfriends birthday and 80% of the time we were there we could barely have a conversation upstairs in the small dining room. This is pretty much strictly a "special occasion" place for us so that part was a let down. Also, they were completely out of bread that night.
