For 10 plus years we have enjoyed the great food, service and atmosphere. Snow birds tell snow birds the best places to eat. Just one thing make sure you ask how hot or spicey first so they can make it perfect for you. If you didn't like it you may be the first.

Our server was excellent. Did not rush us. Was very knowledgeable about the menu items and able to make suggestions. Very attentive without being overly such. Both our entrees were excellent. Would definitely go back.

Went downtown for the lighting of the Christmas trees. Had heard that Harry's was a fun place to eat,but knew it would be busy, but I got right in at the bar. Had the blackened shrimp salad, it was delicious. Staff were very busy, but friendly. Need to go back soon.

Thank Teresa S

Thank you for visiting Harry's Seafood Bar & Grille! A distinctively different menu, the food of Harry's Seafood Bar and Grille captures the essence of a city not only known worldwide as the birthplace of Jazz but also the birthplace of a unique style of cooking.
We've taken the best of Cajun, Creole and Southern flavors infused with a current day twist to create some of our most popular dishes like Shrimp and Scallop Orleans, Grilled Chicken Baton Rouge, Crab Crusted Blackened Red Fish, Bourbon Street Salmon and French Quarter Beef Tenderloin to name a few.
