Harry's Seafood Bar & Grille - St. Augustine
Located in one of St Augustine's oldest bayfront homes built in the 1740s, just steps from the Bridge of Lions, Harry's serves up fine New Orleans style dining with the freshest seafood, grilled steaks, chicken, pasta and more. The family friendly spot offers a children's menu and treats kids to Mardi Gras beads. It features a serene view from its courtyard, whose coquina walls are original construction. Entrees include burgers and more elaborate items, like seared lobster and seafood pasta ($18.99) and seafood specialties ranging in price from $13.99-$22.99.
My husband and I both ordered the redfish crusted with blue crab and a Beurre Blanc sauce. It was wonderful and the portion was generous but not wastefully so. I had a nice but not great New Zealand sauvignon blanc - but the price was OK Our waitress was polite and had definite opinions about what to order. I was going to get the blackened redfish but she politely suggested the redfish with crab. She had worked in New Orleans and when I mentioned I had been there a few times, she offered beignets as a dessert option even though they were not listed. The beignets were fine but not as good as the ones I remember from Cafe Du Monde. I would not hesitate to go back as the snapper was excellent.
I was at Harrys during the weekend of thanksgiving. I must admire the ambiance, food and the people it attracts. However we had some bad experience. As we were paying off for the food we had, I generally round off the total amount including the gratuity in the total leaving the tip column blank. When I was checking my account online I realized that I was over charged. I got back to the manager to realize that someone had actually filled up the tip column with an additional amount, apart from what I had already included in the total before. The manager however promised to refund the extra amount deducted from my account. I generally tip between 15-20 % of the total, but that day I tipped the server about 14%( including $2.00 as cash) of the bill because I really didn’t like his attitude towards our group. Apart from all this I might go there again for the food and ambiance it offers.......
Ten women got together outside dining, and enjoyed the whole fabulous evening.
Entertainment was fun as one of our ladies was asked to play tamborine when appropiate. She Did and even more--had everyone laughing and watching. Folks ate and drank more for sure!!
Have been back many times, thank you very much. Going back tonight to Celebrate B/D
Had several good times and meals there, but after two poor experiences, including one with several major wait staff and payment errors, we complained to the Harry's central management. 4 or 5 calls later, their complaint lady was forgetting to return our calls and when finally pinned down, was indifferent and put us off. Sadly, we will not return and have stopped referring folks there.
Our family has made Harry's a tradition. Especially when we have guests in town. The outdoor ambiance on a perfect weather evening makes it seem as if you are on vacation. The food is excellent, especially choices of sauces that just add to the exquisite flavor of any entre, from filet to sea food. Birthdays, anniversaries, special occasions or just being together, Harry's is the place. Love it.
If you like a beautiful outdoor setting under the Hong Kong orchid trees with lighted torches, this is the place.
The mahi-mahi special was dry and tough. The shrimp etouffee's sauce was OK, but the shrimp were of the tasteless frozen variety.
The wait on a Wednesday night in April was close to one hour. We're not coming back.
This restaurant has to be one of the most overrated & overblown places in St. Augustine. I remember being a student at the college & the cafeteria food being better. Nothing from Harry's ever tasted good (the few times I HAD to go) and even managed to make disgusting-tasting cheesefries. You're better off at Red Lobster or O'Steen's for seafood. For New Orleans cajun, just drive the 900 miles!
October is a lovely time of the year to visit harry's. beautiful weather, nice crowds, plenty of customers to chat with. the drinks were great, appetizers were wonderful. however, ordered the bananas foster, have your staff bone up on how to prepare and serve.
Harrys is wonderful as a place to sit down and have a drink. The outside courtyard is beautiful. BUT the food is bland at best and on a "bad" day I have been served hamburgers frozen in the middle, (yes, plural - it was still frozen the second time), cold french fries and Pasta where I have had to search for the chicken. I live in St. A and Harry s has sorely declined, a shame as I used to love eating here. The Service ranges from slow to shocking. After my past three experiences I will not be returning.
