I met with a friend for lunch and we had a delicious lunch. The calamari was outstanding; love the fried jalapenos! The crab cake sandwich was excellent according to my colleague. However, I ordered the tuna poke and it was not edible. It was overly spiced and overly seasoned - you could not taste the beautiful tuna! It was so seasoned that there were "crunchy bits" on the tuna. The wait staff was very apologetic and offered to get another item for me, but we were out of time.

This would in NO WAY deter me from returning to Harry's Seafood. It is consistently delicious, fresh and high quality. This particular dish was a one-off.

The seafood tower for two was very well done, cold seafood well shucked and looked really nice. Service is always excellent here. I had the crab cake which was good and husband had the lobster rol.l which he said was good. Nice place

Food was very good, our waiter was awesome. The only real negative was we were seated in the bar area and there were 4 extremely loud patrons who were probably well into their happy hour that made it so noisy that it essentially ruined what was to be a quiet Valentine's Day dinner.

It is my wife's favorite restaurant so, as my date night for Valentines Day Dinner, we went there. The food was perfect and they even provided a complimentary glass of Champagne upon entry. Because of the occasion, it was a little louder than normal but, understandably so.

Over all, great night!

We love Harry's, especially the Maine lobster and the crab cakes! It is generally a first choice for our family on birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions. We highly recommend this restaurant for their great food, waterfront view and quiet but friendly atmosphere!

Fried calamari was excellent as usual although I wish the chef would bring back the avocado dipping sauce. They have the best I’ve ever had, and I’ve tried it many places. They say the secret is that they only use fresh-caught. Fish pot was very good, but a little skimpy on seafood. The moules frites were also quite good.

My daughter accepted a proposal from her fiancee. What a time with great food. I think they marked Harry's as an engagement anniversary landmark. Thanks!

Excellent lobster, panko fried oysters, rock fish, as usual. The service was attentive without being intrusive. A restaurant that we frequent and enjoy. We were hoping that the change in ownership would not damage the experience and it didn’t.

Management refused to honor valid gift cards (clearly marked "Valid for life") for use at Harry's seafood grill, Harry's Savoy & kid shelleen's.
They would rather lose customers than deal with Harry's hospitality group.
Obviously the "amicable" split previously reported in Delaware online is not true.
This behavior makes me wonder what other unethical acts they are committing.
I won't go back.

Was excited to eat on the water but it was not visible at all even from outside..needed lights or something outside by the water to make it feel more like an experience.

My parents told my daughter and I to celebrate my birthday. The waitress was nice, but the service was lacking. We all got the lobster boil dinner and I was sharing with my daughter (8) since we also got apps.
The Good:
- the calamari is done perfectly
- the creme brûlée!!
The Bad:
- bread was never brought to the table until asked for after we got our apps
- had to track down another server to get a spoon for my daughter
- the lobsters were 1.25lbs at best but definitely not 1.5lbs. The tail on my mother’s lobster looked like a large shrimp
- couldn’t find our service to get a plate for my daughter so we had to resort to using the soup bowl
- the potatoes were terrible. They must have been just sitting in water all night just a mushy inedible mess.
- we never got refills on our water until she brought the check
- my Irish coffee tasted like straight Jameson’s and our server was once MIA so I could get some more coffee in it

I would have let most of this go if the restaurant was busy and she had many tables to attend to, but there were only about 10 tables with at least 4 servers I counted as I was constantly scanning the room trying to locate ours. I did find her in the corner chatting with the other server.

This was my 2nd year celebrating my birthday at Harry's. They gave me everything I wanted. A reserved larger booth...that delicious Lobster Naked and the best Moscow Mules. I have no complaints ...everyone is nice and goes out of their way to make sure you are satisfied.

The CEVICHE SAMPLER OF OYSTER, SCALLOP, SCARLET SNAPPER was rather tasteless except for the jalapeno slices coming thru...
The OVEN ROASTED CORVINA GARLIC ROASTED POTATO, TEMPURA FRIED BUTTERNUT SQUASH, CRANBERRY-GINGER VINAIGRETTE was excellent...
The Bronzino special was also excellent...
Much too noisy a restaurant... and tables for two for "miniscule" in size...

New Year’s Eve early dinner. Restaurant was brilliant as usual. Chef Bank’s was very much visible, working hard.
I was disappointed not to see any of the old wait staff there, but that is not a comment on the quality of staff that was present. As always, can’t wait to go back again.
