Extremely loud not so clean and my scallops were very greasy. For the money there are many better places to dine in AC.
Harry's Oyster bar was a fun spot for a group. The food was just okay bar food - oysters were good, entree's were on the small side. Service took forever. However, the redeeming quality here was the outside patio - it was really nice, there was a live band - lots of fun! Especially for a group.
Had a group of 12. We are all locals. Service excellent food superb!
Very nice meal - we dined inside - oysters, salads, salmon - all good - afterwards we listened to the band outside - beautiful night - and our server was great - she was helpful and charming. We will be back.
Employees were very accommodating to our group of 8!
We are somewhat of a regular customer - go to Harry's at least once a month. Went this past Monday night for my son's 24th birthday with his friend and my husband for a table of 4 outside - but when we went up to hostess stand outside and asked if we could sit outside instead of inside. She said we have to go inside and tell them first and then come back. I sent my husband and my son, his friend and I stood right there at the stand in front of her. Then a couple minutes later, a couple with their baby carriage came up and asked if they could get a table (outside). The girl sat them. seconds later, I was still standing in front of the hostess stand, my husband came back and said okay-told them, can we have a table. She said sorry - no more tables available. You will have to wait - may be 30 mins or more.
What?! we were standing there ready to be seated at the "first come first serve hostess stand" outside. How did she not seat us FIRST before the couple that came later?! What is the matter with her?
VERY DISAPPOINTED as we wanted to share the outside experience with my son & friend. Had to sit inside - which is fine, but not what we came for. Also the crab nachos are really getting skimpy.
We are not coming back for awhile - and if I ever see that "girl" hostessing - we will never come back again.
She needs retraining on people and customer service skills.
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
Girls night out to see Rod Stewart. Harry’s was the perfect place to grab a bite to eat before concert. Service was quick,drinks and live band were great!
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.
Great place and good food. Service was a little slow, but overall pretty good!
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.
Made a reservation however there was still an hour wait to sit outside!
Was a big disappointment ..a lot of reviews were good...but I wouldn't recommend
It's a great place to eat prior to going to a Casino show. Also, great place on the boardwalk.
Quite the find almost as good as its parent docs similar menus well prepared food and generally available good choice of oysters to know seafood platters right on the boardwalk
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.
Wonderful. Been many times and never disappointed!
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
Servers were patient with our large and challenging group.
Best oysters in town,well worth the drive or walk in Atlantic City
Great food and service. 15 people for a birthday dinner including the staff singing happy birthday. It was amazing not one complaint.
Excellent spot for a night out! Right off the boardwalk for perfect location. Excellent raw bar selections and drink options. Fresh fish prepared multiple ways! Great casual hangout!
We made a reservation for 8:00 on a Saturday night, got there and table was ready. Great service from waitress, very knowledgeable about menu and drinks. Food didn’t disappoint, great raw bar. Dinner selections were perfect, everybody, party of seven were very satisfied with food and service.
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.
We had a wonderful experience. The food was fantastic. Our server was polite and went above and beyond to make a special connection. We will be back!
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.
Service and food were very good. We will be back had no problems with 10 people. Price is reasonable.
We've always had good service here, but the other night was extraordinary in terms of service and food. We had the most amazing server - Melody! Ask for her next time you're in, you won't be sorry.
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!
We had a fun night out with outdoor music and great food!
We come here every year on vacation- always great food and service....only negative is no refills on drinks.
We were seated quickly but the server took a while to get our order. The food arrived quickly and was good but not necessarily exceptional. Mixed drinks were pricey. Great indoor and outdoor bar.
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."
Favorite Shore restaurant. Great with kids!
Go all the time!!
Our servers were great but the food was not. We chose this restaurant from the good reviews and high rank on trip advisor but it was very disappointing and over priced.
