THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Harry's Seafood Bar & Grille Restaurant Review

: Another New Orleans' wannabe, Harry's is housed in a nondescript brick building on the westside of A1A. But locals don't hold that against this popular eatery; in fact, many claim that Harry's has the best Cajun-style seafood this side of the Mississippi. One fact that can't be disputed is that Harry's portions are perhaps the largest we've encountered at any restaurant --- so large that we'd wager you'll have enough left over for lunch the next day. Casual in both décor and food combinations, some of the menu favorites are the fresh catch of the day, either grilled or blackened and topped with an etouffée sauce; or the Gulf Coast crabcakes made with blue crabmeat, breaded and fried, and served with a Dijon mustard sauce. There are also nightly specials. If you're lucky, you might find yourself at Harry's on the night shrimp Creole is served. This spicy Nawlin's rendition was once a menu mainstay but has now been relegated to the blue plate special. Besides its dining area, Harry's has a large U-shaped bar with a few booths and tables. With televisions all around and snappy servers that keep the drinks coming, these are ideal for business people who dine alone or for rowdy groups who are more interested in drinking than eating.
