I have been wanting to try this place as it was rated #2 in Winter Haven. Based on the reviews, I arrived right at opening time to ensure getting a seat. Wait staff was friendly and I wound up having Harry as my server. I had the grouper special which included two sides. I had salad and cheesy grits. The... More

They don't take reservations. Everyone including bartender and people eating at the bar were upbeat and pleasant. Seated and hostess immediately offered to... More

We had a great meal. Steamed oysters were large and delicious. There is a large selection of fish. Great service and casual atmosphere. Parking is tight and you will probably have to wait, but it is worth it! There is a small bar, we got a drink and sat outside until our table was ready.

When we visited Lakeland the day The Detroit Tigers lost to Toronto Blue Jays, we stopped at Harry's Old Place for dinner. I ordered the Chicken Baton Rouge grilled and topped with goat cheese & sun dried tomato beurre blanc sauce. Simply delicious :)

I ordered a steak and told the server that I wanted it rare. When the steak came to the table I cut off a piece and it was NOT as ordered... More

Great local place for seafood! Nice selection of fish on the menu. Must get there early for dinner, can be a long wait(sometimes over an hour). Beer and wine service only.

We have been to Harry's several times over the years and it has always been consistently good. They offer a large selection of fish and shellfish that can be prepared in several ways such as broiled, blackened etc. Grouper in a bag seems to be a specialty. Hush puppies plus two additional sides accompany the entree. The downside is they... More

Freshest seafood I've ever had. There are no reservations but it's worth the wait. I've lived in Florida all my life and this was the best.

Harrys Old Place is one of the best seafood restaurants in Florida. My family and I have been going here for over 20 years. They have a great variety of options including seafood and steak. They also have the best French Onion soup around. The owners are fantastic and are always engaged with customers. The service is fantastic and friendly!... More
