Friendly and welcoming staff. My first time trying oysters and they were lovely, so good I was back for my first tasting of crab, which was also excellent.

Unfortunately that's exactly what we did. Went in at 7:20 on a Friday night 2 weeks ago, they were busy but certainly not over the top. Our server, who never told us her name, thankfully, was awful. 20 minutes just to bring 3 waters and a beer. Took our order. More than 1 hour later our food had still not... More

Delicious seafood , friendly staff , it's more a bar than a restaurant. It was a nice evening so I dined outside because inside was smoky. The meals was cooked to perfection, however outside bar was filled with staff smoking and engaging in conversation with the quest at bar. I didn't see any wrong in this activity but when I... More

The place may not look like a place you would go for seafood but it was good. Large selection of bottled beer . friendly staff. By no means gourmet but good solid seafood choices.

If you like crab legs, and aren't near the ocean, Harry's is the place to go! They are never over-cooked or dry! Each order is 1 1/2 lbs. of pure heaven! They have typical bar food, as well as other seafood specialties. Don't let the bar atmosphere influence you...they have two other separate dining areas.

This is one of my regular places in Aiken. Do not be put off by the decor, the food is invariable great. I would not recommend it for a romantic dinner but for a casual bite it is perfect

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!
