It is a nice fine dining restaurant. Right at the riverfront, you can see runners and walkers along the water by the patio of the restaurant. The fried oysters as appetizer are huge and very tasty. The crispy rainbow trout was served with unusual yet pleasant ingredients: bacon (two long pieces), brie cheese and tomato, all embedded between the fillets... More

We walked there (15 minutes) but there was plenty of parking. We went on a Monday evening, not during tourist season, and there were lots of people so locals clearly support this restaurant. The food was excellent, as were the drinks and wine, and the service was very friendly and professional. Oysters were so fresh1

Very good fresh seafood platter, very tasty. The ceviche trio is also tasty. Good American Chardonnay wines on the list. The Harissa Tile Fish dish is poor and I do not recommend it ... Home made ice creams have too much water content. Service is good but sometimes difficult to understand the English for foreigners ...

Everything I ate just tasted delightful! I had the fries with truffle oil for app, steamed shrimp for meal and prickly pear sorbet for dessert and all along some of the best bread that I had in a long time. The service was wonderful and was always there filling up my drink. I sat looking at the river...yes it is... More

We went to Harry's Seafood Grill for our anniversary dinner . . . and had a superb experience. We started off with Ceviche Sampler and an assortment of extremely fresh, chilled oysters from the outstanding raw bar. The oysters were incredible. Our server, Tess, identified the origin of the oysters for us, and we enjoyed the distinct, very fresh flavors.... More

We go to Harry's frequently because we like the food there very much. They offer a large variety of wonderful fresh seafood. Service is generally very good also, and there is a friendly accommodating staff. You can sit in a large diningroom, with a gas fireplace, or in a separate room with a huge bar, which is terribly noisy, and... More

Great food, nice atmosphere, but priced on the high end. OK Location, ON the Wilmington Water front, A Dirty River, not GOOD atmosphere.

My dad loved this place, and it's been consistently great over the years. When the weather is good, the outdoor seating is wonderful. The decor is also so fun and seafood-worthy! The oyster selection is always impressive, and the lunch menu is varied and delicious -- worth the trip!

This was always a restaurant with innovative entrees and great service. The service is still there but the food quality and preparation has decreased significantly over the last year! Don't know what changed but an extraordinary dining experience has become almost less than average. This comes from someone who has raved about the place for the last fourteen years!
