We have been to Harry's several times over the years and it has always been consistently good. They offer a large selection of fish and shellfish that can be prepared in several ways such as broiled, blackened etc. Grouper in a bag seems to be a specialty. Hush puppies plus two additional sides accompany the entree. The downside is they... More

Freshest seafood I've ever had. There are no reservations but it's worth the wait. I've lived in Florida all my life and this was the best.

Harrys Old Place is one of the best seafood restaurants in Florida. My family and I have been going here for over 20 years. They have a great variety of options including seafood and steak. They also have the best French Onion soup around. The owners are fantastic and are always engaged with customers. The service is fantastic and friendly!... More

Great service, great seafood, and great for kids, but steaks weren't great quality and were overcooked. We would go ago but not order steak.

Wait staff were great. We went to Lunch there a couple years ago and it was great. Fish Tacos were the best. We went to dinner on a Wednesday. I had steamed shrimp with garlic and butter. It was kind of tasteless. The lemon did not help. I had charbroiled haddock that was ok, but not the best I've ever... More

Fresh food, great service and local ownership. Why would anyone go to Red Lobster when they could come here? The food is terrific. Sometimes a wait during tourist season.

Our first visit to Harry's Old Place was in Feb. 2016. The Fried Oysters were the best I have ever eaten. However, on my second visit this year [ Feb. 2017] I was not nearly as satisfied. The oysters were small and over cooked. Hopefully I will try again next year and have better results.

This seafood place opens at 5 pm sharp with lines of old timers lined up in front. The outside is very unimpressive, but don't let that fool you. This place has very very good seafood and the inside is very presentable. I saw dishes there I have never seen before. Like onion loaf and grouper in a bag. I had... More

The management and staff were very nice. It was a ways from our hotel and since we didn't know the town, we took uber to and from. It was dark, so we didn't get to see much of the grounds and the setting. It has a lot of character and the food was good too. We split the fried combo... More

As a resident of the beautiful city of Winter Haven for many years I cannot believe I am JUST now experiencing Harry's Old Place! The location isn't "off the beaten path" but if you're not actively looking, you'll miss it...unless you're riding by and the parking lot is completely packed as it usually is when Harry's is open. The restaurant... More
