I have been to Harry's many times, the food is consistent and I love the cajun/mardi gras theme and Louisiana food. Having said that, the place is often bombed with people and then the service goes in the toilet. Basically, if you drive by and...More

The food wasn't worth the hour wait. And another 30-45 minute wait for 5 shrimp with 1/4 teaspoon crab cake on each. It was served luke warm. This item...Way overpriced. Much better off at the Braised Onion.

Harrys always delivers on great seafood dishes. The scallops and Red Fish are excellent choices. The staff are friendly and the drinks are good value during happy hour.

We should up via motorcycle with helmets, the bartender didn't want to serve us. We want one drink and appaterize and go. The bartender was more worried about the rich kids there.

New Orleans style food -- wakes up your taste buds without burning, and the menu is filled with selections making it tough to decide. Eating outside you can watch the strollers around the square; inside is a high energy and somewhat noisy atmosphere....you can choose....More

That's an interesting question. I'm sure the specific nutritional information is available at the restaurant. IMHO, red beans and rice, shrimp and grits are the way to go, hit the treadmill in the morning!
What are the gluten free options for lunch?

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.
