We liked the variety of entrees on the menu that would appeal to adults and children. Everything was tasty and the service very good. Being placed in the upper dining level the room was quite noisy. That would be my only complaint.

Overall it was a nice place. The world famous shrimp was just so-so, but good as shrimp goes. The service staff was excellent. But I ordered a coffee and it was terribly weak, so the waitress kindly took it back and brought me espresso instead, but the espresso must have been put in a cold mug because it was cold. I was tired of sending stuff back so I just drank it.

The food was typical food for a place like this, overpriced. But that's the same everywhere. The quality of the food was very good though. And the servers were excellent.

Harry and Issy's was an AWESOME night all the way around. I was a little worried that the snow was going to shut things down, but not the case - you guys did an incredible job for my Wife and I. I have had the shrimp cocktail many times before and it still brings tears to my eyes. Please do not back off on the "PUNCH" of that sauce like some the reviews I have read asking you to tone it down. Tell those babies to man up and eat the REAL shrimp cocktail sauce that has made you guys famous!

Ate here while I was attending the ABCA Convention. Had the World Famous Shrimp Cocktail. You better have a beverage on hand!! Also had the large wedge salad. It was cold and crisp and the ingredients were absolutely tasty. The main course was there large rib eye and mashed potatoes. Might have been one of the best steaks I ever had. The remarkable thing was the potatoes. They were to die for!! Unbelievable steak and potatoes. Others in my group had the filet mignon which he said melted in his mouth and was perfectly cooked. One friend had the prime ny steak. He thought it was good but not great. One other friend had the fettuccine. He said it was a good as any he had ever had.
Is on the pricey side, but is worth it. Waitress and hostess's were friendly and easy to deal with.
Overall this gets a 5 star rating from me.

We ordered the aged sirloin. It was not impressive for $55 a steak with one side. The room was loud and while the service staff was okay, this did not make up for the other areas that were lacking.

I did get seated with a birthday card and I noticed other special occasions had cards at the table. I also was given a dessert ($7.00 or under) as a birthday gift.

It did not live up to expectations or recommendations we had read.

We had dinner here before a Pacer game last week. Although I have been here many times for a full dinner and have entertained guests here on numerous occasions, this particular night we all (4) had appetizers for dinner. Highly recommend the filet sliders (best in town), my friend absolutely loved the spicy meatballs and who could ever complain about the shrimp cocktail. Server was fun, engaging and very attentive. We WILL be back again and again.

We were seated very quickly, very professional staff! We will definitely be back!! I have recommended Harry and Izzy’s to several co-workers already!

Thank you!!

Have dined here several times with customers. took the family for NY Eve celebration. Everything was going well until my $53 bone-in filet came out well done along with cold sides. Manager came and apologized and sides were nuked. Steak took 20 minutes to return. By that time family was done eating so I just boxed to go. To be fair they did not charge me for my steak. Overall though disappointing for a top end steak restaurant

It was cold... very cold. There was a space heater that we pointed towards us. I understand it was very cold outside, but something needs to be done to keep inside comfortable. We had planned to stay there to bring in the new year, but were too cold so went home.

It's just too expensive. I've had just as good as food at other restaurants for half the price. We received a gift card for Christmas-the only reason why we came. Yes, you have enough rich customers to come eat, but for the middle class.....$16 for (4) shrimp cocktail ? Oh my!!! Couldn't even order with gift card and wouldn't if I could. We can never come back unless we get another gift card. Everything else was very good.
Our waiter was great by the way!

Harry & Izzys does it right.

St. Elmo’s Shrimp Cocktail.
Enough said.

Moroccan Sea Bass is highly recommended. Phenomenal!

12 oz Filet was cooked perfectly to order and flavorful perfection.

Do not leave without enjoying the delicious crème brulee.

Our server Choppy was a seasoned pro and on point with exceptional service the entire visit.
