We ate here two years ago (and I believe I reviewed it then). Very good food, service, atmosphere. I wish there was one in NJ but there isn't. Highly recommend.

That's an interesting question. I'm sure the specific nutritional information is available at the restaurant. IMHO, red beans and rice, shrimp and grits are the way to go, hit the treadmill in the morning!

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.
