We three girlfriends decided to come down for lunch. The Devour Indy was extended and so we brought a girlfriend that had never been. Everything was above and beyond our expectations. Shrimp cocktail excellent, filet sliders delicious and the house made potato chips with two dipping sauces were addictive. Then we got a brownie with fudge and ice cream. What more could you ask for $24? We all three loved everything about our meals. Thus will definitely warrant a return trip. Our server was wonderful too and the best French pressed coffee ever!

The food was wonderful, it’s the timing that disappoints
The last two years we’ve chosen to celebrate our wedding anniversary at Harry & izzy’s. On both occasions we arrived a few minutes prior to our reservation time and found ourselves waiting for over 20 minutes in the lobby area. What is frustrating is it seems that people who arrive after we checked in get seated first.
When we finally got to our table it was another 10 minutes before the waitress even came to take a drink order. Then it was another 10 minutes before the cocktails arrived. So basically an hour from the time of the reservation until we are actually eating something.
The couple at adjoining table were seated after us. Yet, there waiter that was on the spot and those guest were dining by the time we got our cocktails.
Perhaps I was a bit hangry, but timing issues seem to diminish what should be a pleasant dinning experience.

We had a great experience at Harry & Izzy's! The food was delicious. The famous St. Elmo's shrimp cocktail was so fresh and tasty, and the calamari appetizer was one of the best I've ever had. The entrees were cooked perfectly and were generous portions. We finished with their brownie dessert that was decadent and perfect to share.

Our server Sean was great! He took good care of us without hovering and was very friendly. He was very patient and knowledgeable with the table next to us as well. They weren't familiar with the different cuts of steak and other things on the menu. He was great at explaining things to them without being rude or condescending.

The atmosphere is classic but still modern. It was overall a great experience.

Paige was amazing! Our service from start to finish was top notch, and she went out of her way to ensure that our belated “Valentine’s Day” was the best ever. We both appreciate the lengths of the entire staff to make our visit stand out, and look forward to returning to celebrate special occasions to come!

Thank you Harry and Izzys for a great evening celebrating my daughters birthday. We arrived to a card at the table for her signed by the staff which was a nice extra touch. We had my 18 month old grand daughter and everyone at the restaurant was so accommodating and helpful with food and ice balls to keep her occupied. It was very nice. The DEVOUR menu was and extra treat and worked out great for us to try several different dishes. The bacon appetizer was yum, yum amazing! Your staff just made the whole night feel special and from someone visiting from an area where we can not dine out due to Covid restrictions, every extra touch was so appreciated and made us feel safe as well. Thank you!

The waiter was super cool, but a bit of a ditz. He got into talking with customers and being nice, but at the cost of ample service. he forgot to put our ticket in for like 25 minutes after we had ordered. After this, he was hardly attentive, I had to eat my filet mignon with a butter knife, because he didn’t show up for about 20 minutes after the food was served, and neither had the manager who had already talked to us since the waiter had forgotten the ticket earlier. The food was good, but not as good as a place like Harry and Izzy’s usually is, and I would typically expect a $44 steak to be cooked how I ordered it, medium rare, and not have it come out 25 minutes late cooked medium instead.

Disappointing experience, but maybe COVID had changed us all too much.
Waitress was average and my steak wasn’t the usual.

My partner & I went to Harry & Izzy's for Valentine's Day. We made a reservation for 330 & were seated shortly after our arrival. We sat in a booth upstairs which was cozy & quiet. We went for the cocktail shrimp of course for our appetizer. It DID NOT disappoint. I am not a fan of cocktail shrimp, but this was AMAZING. You get 4 jumbo shrimp & a delicious horseradish cocktail sauce that will definitely clear your sinuses & make your eyes water if you get too much. Just a dab will do ya!
Next we got our wedge salads with gorgonzola dressing. It had big bacon pieces, tomatoes & a gorgonzola dressing that was SO GOOD!! My partner chose the 10oz prime ribeye which she absolutely loved every bite of & was disappointed she couldn't eat the last 6 bites she had left. I went with the 10oz prime ribeye as well- izzy style (pepper encrusted, pan seared with an orange brandy butter sauce). OMG it was delicious!! It cut like butter & melted in your mouth! I don't think I could get it any other way when we go back! We both had the mashed potatoes & thought they were great! We shared a side of brussel sprouts & bacon which were excellent as well! Even though we had little room left to fit anything else- we made a little- and ordered the vanilla bean créme brûlée. So glad we did as it was a perfectly sweet way to end our meal!
The tables were very clean, the restaurant & decor was nice. Everyone we came into contact with was very friendly & eager to assist- whether it be refilling your water glass when it had only been empty a second or 2, getting dishes out of the way or recommending a dish. The staff made our experience very pleasant. I also appreciated the fact that they made safety a priority by taking precautions when it comes to Covid. Everyone was wearing a mask & we were able to scan the menus to our phone.
It was just a very enjoyable dining experience & we will definitely be back! Thank you for making our Valentine's Day even better than it already was!!

Food and service was good. This was our first time visiting and we were seated at a table where we could not enjoy the ambience of the restaurant. All we could see was the front door and a few others around us. If I had it to do over, I would have asked for a different table.

This was my first visit to this place on Valentine’s Day
. I ordered the 6oz Filet mignon (medium) with mashed potatoes & green beans w/a superb cocktail. When I tell you everything about this meal, the location, ambiance, my seat location & my server was simply AMAZING! The steak melted in my mouth & when I cut the steak, the knife so elegantly glided through without a slight of hesitation. The seasonings was perfect. I will definitely return..... Thank you all for making my 1st experience here one to certainly remember! ❤️🙏🏼💯

The 3 item lunch special is excellent! Everyone in our party had different selections which led to some sharing which will help what to decide on next time we visit.

This has turned into our go to lunch spot for my wife and I on special occasions.

Poor service and when my steak ran out of juice it was hard to chew. Got dessert to go and they brought it to us to eat there. Finally got it to go and got back to the hotel nearby and had no utensils and had to throw away
