OK. The selection of food here, particularly seafood items, is extensive.

Having said that, you may never make it into the place! Parking here is very limited and cramped. Before you arrive you will have no idea of whether or not you'll be able to park.

All the items we ordered were good, but nothing special.

In central Florida, there are many better seafood joints.

Harry's has been a standby for us when people visit from out of town or an occasional dinner out.
Our last visit was disappointing. Specifically, two of us had the catfish, which was not cleaned properly. Thr result was a muddy taste. At an adjoining table, one lady sent hers back.
Here's hoping the new management gets it together. Harry's is a snowbird favorite.

Great seafood, great staff, if you are visiting LEGOLAND this is a must do!!! Had the seafood platter and the mahi-mahi and both were great. The food is also very reasonable.

If you look at their website - 3/24/18 -- you are looking at the previous owners website. The times open are different now with the new owners. They still have a great selection of fresh seafood but the famous clam chowder has been replaced with a fish chowder that isn't nearly as good. My husband ordered a pasta dish with white sauce but instead it arrived with a garlic/oil sauce -- not so good. My salmon was great. Service was very good. They now have outside seating (picnic tables) which gives them more seating but parking is still limited. We had stopped by for lunch on a week day but they were not open then & I'm not sure if they are open for lunch on weekends.

We like to try local places and this was highly rated, so we tried it out. We arrived about 6:45 on a Friday and waited about 40 minutes for a table. Service was fairly quick once we were seated. Fried shrimp was outstanding. Strip steak was fine for a strip steak. Kids linguine with marinara was good, but a little spicy for one of my kids who likes perfectly bland food. Key lime pie was very good. I'm not sure it was Islamorada Fish Company good, but it was among the best we've had. Definitely worth a visit instead of the chains.
