We sat at the bar and had an appetizer and bowl of bisque. Both were good and the bartender was very helpful in recommending places to see and do in Gainesville. We'll go back.

I always enjoy coming here. The atmosphere is very relaxing and the food is always great! I'm a huge fan of the Chicken Baton Rouge. I'd highly recommend it to anyone that is looking for something with a little kick to it. If your looking for a nice relaxing atmosphere for dinner, enjoy a night here.

They have Louisiana type food. It is very good and reasonably priced. I enjoy going there, and I have been going there for many years.

Friday night before UF vs South Carolina game. Party of 10 so we had to wait. Great that it happened as our 45 minutes plus at the bar was a blast. Great drinks and excellent appetizers combined with great service. Moved into dining room and Derek took wonderful care of us. All dinners arrived hot and cooked as ordered and... More

They have amazing food and give you a lot of it. Great service. We had a party of 25 and they accommodated us in a timely manner. They kept our drinks full which is important and our food was hot.

People seem to like the food. However many years ago I ordered grilled shrimp. It was mushy and the flavor was off. I decided it was from frozen, did not go back until last year when friends insisted. I ordered fried ocean scallops. They were old, over cooked, dry, and tasted off. That was it for me. Again I may... More

This places tries to be New Orleans like with its own twist. Not bad but not great. The fish tacos were good the greens way too sweet and worst of all the red beans were burnt. Mentioned to the waitress and she said she'd let the kitchen know. Very disappointed.

The food was amazing, especially shrimp creole. The fried pickles were cooked perfectly. Are out doors .

I've been to Harry's several times, but this is the first time I'm reviewing. If you want a no hassle dinner experience with excellent food that will leave a memory of the evening, this is the right place. The dining area has always been quiet, even when there are events going on downtown. Service was top notch with a server... More

We have visited Harry's on several occasions. The service is always good. Cocktails always good. Dinners 85% of the time very good. Occasionally the cook slips up and the meat comes out a little dry or the baked potato is overdone. Overall a good place though, still on our list especially for drinks and appetizers.

Thank ckadams2015
