Our group of 10 had a variety of cocktails, appys, dinners and desserts. Everything was terrific. Weather was perfect to enjoy al fresco dining. Band played a great mix of tunes and wasn't so loud that we coudn't enjoy our conversations. Truly a great anniversary dinner1

Prices were ridiculously high and portions were small. Overrated.
The hostess was not courteous - told us they open at 12:00 and customer made a mistake. They could have ask us to wait politely.

Our mussels came wrong and the second batch tasted funny. The manager came over and took them off the bill which was nice.

Went with 6 people family group. It was raining but patio looked like it would be fun and scenic. Some food was tasty enjoyed raw oysters and fish tacos. Salad was fresh and good sized. Sent back calamari because nobody could tell it was Cajun option - not spicey at all. When finally came again it was exactly the same and disappointing. Would have helped to be told that that is how they do it instead of waiting long time for same thing. Mussels were edible but not fresh tasting. Good selection and value so overall good.

Tale of two different experiences on this one. Came on Monday with party of 2 during happy hour, food was very good, service slow. Came again at lunch with party of 14 reservation and staff seemed very overwhelmed though we were only ones in restaurant, service slow and food not so good at all. Took over 2 hours.

The service at the bar was horrible. We ordered oysters waited for 45 minutes and they never came. I was disappointed.

We did not have a good experience. We were a table of 8 so we expected things to take a little extra time but after waiting 45 minuets for water we went to the bar and got it our selves. Then we were notified that the bar staff accidentally through out drink order away and so the server had to put it in again ☹️. All of the appetizers came out except for the soup. Obviously forgotten as they aren’t making each bowl from scratch. Three out of the eight did not enjoy their meal... the scallops were salty and the crab cakes were full of shell. Unsure if this is somewhere I would go again.

We were a late reservation celebrating my daughters 21st birthday and 2 college graduations. Our server was training someone and they did a great job with our party of 10.
We had an Uber mix up so not all of our party arrived on time but the servers never rushed us or made us feel badly about it and I’m so grateful for that.

The calamari was excellent and while the entrees were fairly expensive everyone enjoyed their meals and my oldest daughter was thrilled to learn that the glass her drink came in was hers to keep!

Overall, we had a great time and showed our gratitude in the gratuity. We will return.

We surprised my mom for her 38th birthday because she had came to Harry’s once before. All week she was talking about seafood and wanting it badly; so I decided to look up seafood restaurants in Atlantic City and sure enough my stepdad said Harry’s is the place. The service was outstanding and our waiter was marvelous

Pleasantly surprised, food was outstanding with the same quality yet much cheaper than docks oyster house (same owners). Raw bar was excellent. Will definitely return.
Menu offers dinners as well as sandwiches. Our group of 8 all had dinners, and all were prepared perfectly. The clam bake is a must try, for $37 you get a half lobster, 3 huge scallops, 4-5 Jumbo shrimp, 6+ clams, 6+ mussels, various varieties of fish, sausage, corn on the cob all served in a fantastic broth in a hot pot. This is one of the most expensive meals on the menu, but worth every penny. Most other entrees are very reasonable, portions were great.

Food was very good, and the staff was attentive. I always prefer a little too much time between courses then getting served too quickly. Harry's took the time between courses to the extreme. Our table never ordered dessert due to the excessive time between appetizers and entrée. All food was hot except the vegetable with the entrées, which were room temperature to cold.

We had wonderful service and a great meal. The atmosphere is fun and comfortable. The only small complaint I had would be that the entire meal seemed to be soaked in garlic and tons of butter...which makes everything delicious...but it didn't need so much. Otherwise very highly recommend!

Overall nice experience. We arrived at 445pm for dinner which was perfect by 6pm it was packed and noisy. Also, the poor servers were overwhelmed when it got busy. Whoever scheduled their tables assingments was a mess. One server was on one side of restaurant, then the next serving table completely on other side of restaurant. However they all chipped in and helped eachother!! Very nice servers and that's why we will definitely go back!

Ok, there was a long black hair on one of the oysters. NOT a good way to start a meal. It's called looking at what you are about to serve, quality control. The rest of the meal was just ok at best, not horribly bad but certainly not great either. The vegetables and potatoes were marginally warm. Maybe I convinced myself that they were warm. My fish was warm, not hot, but at least warm. Not likely to return there. In fact upon leaving my wife said, "that experiment is over."

We enjoyed excellent food and service. The calamari was the best I have ever had! Great salads, cocktails, fresh seafood... and get the key lime pie! I don't usually do dessert, but in this case, I'm so glad I did. The veggies that came with my meal were so perfectly done.

We have been going to Harry's since it opened and have always enjoyed it. This last time was not the same. The inside seems to be getting run down a little. Server was nice but not very professional. The food is always ok but we go bAck because we like the outdoor dining and bar.

Our meal was wonderful. The seafood was fresh and delicious; clams, oysters, crab cakes, tuna and calamari. Loved the presentation. Drinks were strong and refreshing. My Mojito was so tasty and above all, Susan , our server was outstanding. Have been here before and will be going back again. Great spot. It was my pick and my party was very pleased. 👍👍

Stopped in for soup and salad. Caesar salad is very good. Lettuce is always fresh and dressing is tasty. Soups are all excellent...it's difficult to choose which one to order. The crab and corn chowder is spicy but we love it! Both styles of the clam chowder are flavorful and have plenty of clams. It can get a little noisy and the room overlooking the boardwalk is pretty cold in the winter months so they run space heaters which don't help much. We eat here every time we are in Atlantic City and have never been disappointed.
