What a precious gem! Before eating, stop in the bar and have a chat with the bartender..a genuine old soul who has interesting tales. When your table is ready, you'll go to the restaurant part, which is full of small tables piled together. The servers, cooks and locals are all talking and it's just like hanging out with a bunch...

After checking online for restaurants in the area, we asked in the motel lobby where would be a good place to eat. Someone in line to check in told us about Harry's Place. She said you may have to wait, but it is worth it. We went there - along with others who heard her comments. Just a small place... More

This is what folks call a "Local Dive", and people love this place! It's along the railroad downtown in Elkin...not fancy or anything luke that, but very good food and service!

I have eaten crab legs everywhere as they are one of my favorites. Harry's crab legs are better than any that I have ever eaten at the coast or anywhere else. All of their food is awesome but the crab legs are my favorite!

We stopped for the night in nearby Jonesville, NC and found Harry's Place for dinner. We had to wait for a table on a Saturday night but it was well worth it! The peel and eat shrimp were great, as well as the crab legs that seemed endless! Meal prices were very reasonable as well! Would highly recommend this restaurant... More

The menu is very limited and the wait is long. The place is not fancy or even relatively nice. But the food is excellent and the prices are fair. It's a winning combination!
