When first taken there, I thought "dirty old bar". Boy, was I surprised. The service is great and the food is too. The scallops can't be beat. The coconut fried shrimp is also a real winner. Can't get past those two to tell you more. The prices are very wallet friendly.

For $16.95, I was expecting something special. This was the worst fish sandwich I've had in a long time. We were told it was haddock, but I'm not sue it was. It was paper thin and had a lot of breading. The buns seemed like it was a day old. If you eat at Harry's order something else. I'm really... More

The location is cool, out of the way and unexpected. The seafood is what you eat here and everyone comes for the specials. Lots of regulars, but everyone is greeted like they are a regular - lots of laughing and cross table talk - love it!

Having recently moved to Aiken, everyone we met concluded their restaurant recommendations with, "Oh, yes, and you must go to Harry's!" .....and so we did. Come as you are, this is definitely a relaxed kind of place. We were greeted warmly and given our choice of tables. My husband had the fish platter and I had the Scallops, both served... More

I heard great things about the food. We went tonight, and we're not disappointed. The food was delicious. The shrimp was lightly breaded, and delicious, not overcooked. The fries were very good. My husband had the fried fish, I think it was haddock. Crispy and delicious. The cole slaw was very good. It's not a fancy place, and that's okay.... More

The Crab Legs were incredible as was the grilled shrimp. They are a bit pricey on the drinks and we were surprised by a pretty hefty bill. The service was great our waitress was fun and kept up engaged the entire evening. Karaoke was really fun. The place is rather small but apparently there is an outdoor bar in the... More

This is a bit of a hole in the hall, but it has indoor and outdoor seating; it's completely unfussy and the service is excellent and the food is very good - fry fries are amazing and not to be missed!!

I have been to Harry's restaurant several times. The major complaint I have read is the food is heavily fried. Well folks just order it broiled and you will not have that problem. I always order my fish broiled and it is very tasty and not over cooked. I usually try not to sit in the bar area and that... More

Being from the northeast, I was disappointed in the haddock. The fillet was very thin and I had to use my knife to break the edge. The waitstaff was great however.
