Busy restaurant in downtown Lakeland. A definite New Orleans flair. Food delicious and our server was good. Kept up with drinks and she was right there asking if we needed anything.

Party of 7, short notice. This very busy restaurant made it happen with ease. Dinner was tasty with large portions. Desserts much the same.

Our small group was surprised to see the amount of construction going on in front of the establishment. Was a little confusing to enter, we weren't the only ones. The dining experience was just average. Nothing stands out, nothing seemed unique. I had a Bourbon...More

Harry’s has no shortage of great dishes, but I just can’t get around ordering Jambalaya every time. Generous portion in a great atmosphere.

(Or should I say "Harry'd?) The "no reservations but call and we'll keep you hanging for an hour" policy(?) is needlessly off-putting. Either take reservations or don't, but eliminate the "30-minute call ahead" nonsense. When "we'll seat you in fifteen minutes" stretches to over an...More

In the last month, I have been told by the restaurant that reservations are taken for large parties of 10 or more. For parties less than 10, you may call 1/2 hour before you come to be added to the list. Everyone in the... More

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.
