This WAS my favorite place to eat. Loved the outside atmosphere. Tried to get a table yesterday and today. Each night counted 15 to 20 open tables. We are a party of 2. Website says, "First come, first serve." When asked why I had to...wait so long, I got various strange responses. Even when I asked if it was due to staff shortage, which I would understand, I got "My IPad isn't working and I am writing by hand." What????? Each night the staff was VERY rude at hostess desk. Such a disappointment. Used to love the food and excellent service.More

I was staying 4 nights in AC @ Caesars next door and decided to stop by Harry's for take out for dinner. I had done so my last visit with no issues. I stopped by around 6:40, unbeknownst to me, they apparently stop taking take...out orders at 7pm (it was a Tuesday), but the two nice women hostesses encouraged me to step over to the bar, to place my order. One tried to alert the bartender (younger guy, 20s/30s with curly/longer shoulder length brown hair), who THREW A TEMPER TANTRUM, in front of a packed bar, about taking take out orders, practically yelling he was too busy, and would refuse. The hostess, almost as alarmed as I was, suggested he was "in a bad mood", and asked me to wait, and she spoke with the manager, who indicated to her that he should take the order, as it was not yet 7pm. So I stood in the take out spot, waited, and waited, and waited, he angrily glanced over on occasion, but NEVER approached to take my order, 7 came and went, and the hostess asked if he had taken my order around 7:05 or so. I told her no, he has not come up to me, she tried to ask him to take my order, and he angrily snapped back it was past 7pm now. He INTENTIONALLY IGNORED ME FOR 15+ MINUTES and then said it was too late. I felt awkward, as hostess said she would talk to manager again, about his refusal to take my order, but when she returned, I asked for a table, as I was quite infuriated at that point, and didn't even want to talk to the bartender to take my order. A horrible start to my experience. I was sat at a high top and my waitress Nicole was great! She was friendly, attentive, and there when you needed her. I ordered a blue cocktail, forget the name, and while it had sour mix as an ingredient, it tasted like rancid/sour, and I wonder if that horrible bartender sabotaged my drink too! The food was good though, I had fire cracker shrimp as an app, which was tasty, and fried seafood platter for dinner. The platter was LARGE, w/ a crab cake, shrimp, fish, and oysters which were really good! Tarter sauce was excellent and seemingly homemade. The food is a good value! The restaurant seemed to have a smell to it as I could still smell it on my clothing after leaving which was a bit unpleasant. Overall, the bartender really upset me, and was so rude to me, when I still seemingly had plenty of time to order. If bartenders are that stretched then perhaps having hostess do a take out order, or other staff behind bar, so another customer isn't treated how I was! I would probably come back but not sure I would get take out with bartenders seething at customers who do so...More

Harry's Oyster and Seafood Bar is the perfect place to hang for an outside lunch, happy hours or dinner. There is also an inside venue for those that don't dig the outside Jersey shore vibe. The ambience is on point set back off the boardwalk,...nestled between thevery cool Bally's Wild West hotel rooms. Harry's is partof the historic landmark Doc's Oyster House, so with that said, the food is awesome. The wait staff is attentive and efficient. Live acoustic guitar and small bands are the perfect accompaniment to the outside courtyard feel. Definitely a place to put on your must do list when in AC.More

My party of four visited Harry’s for a weekend dinner out as one of our first indoor-dining-post-pandemic experiences, and it was well worth it. The restaurant took all the necessary Covid precautions, the food was fantastic, and the manager Laura went above and beyond to...help us out. We would definitely recommend this dining experience and will be visiting again!More

I was served Mahi Mahi fish and it smelled like rotten fish. Absolutely disgusting. I've eaten this fish many times and it does not smell like rotten fish. The fish was black inside and stunk. I asked the server and the manager to smell it....They them self said something isn't right with it. I was told the chief wasn't working at that time. Go figure.More
