This is a place where you drive up and think "Oh no. It's a dump." The inside is covered with writing on the walls...and it's an old, banged up place. BUT, the food is very good and the atmosphere is great. Friday nights are Karaoke...More

You don't go here for the atmosphere...you go here for the food and good service. We've been there twice and both times the food was excellent as was the service. The escallops are especially good if you have them broiled, and get a little melted...More

If you like crab legs, and aren't near the ocean, Harry's is the place to go! They are never over-cooked or dry! Each order is 1 1/2 lbs. of pure heaven! They have typical bar food, as well as other seafood specialties. Don't let the...More

This is one of my regular places in Aiken. Do not be put off by the decor, the food is invariable great. I would not recommend it for a romantic dinner but for a casual bite it is perfect
