This is a great, old, rustic place to dine in at. It is perfect for a night out with friends or for a date. The food is beyond delicious and the service has never failed. It is pretty pricey so be prepared to get great food for market prices.

The food is ok, and was properly cooked, but the fish in a bag was bland. The service is good, but can be a bit slow since a lot of snowbirds eat there. I have only been once, but in talking with others, they felt the same way I did. Maybe it's bland because retirees don't like flavor? I personally... More

We often go here for lunch. Some of the best seafood anywhere. Not a large place so be sure to get there early. Folks line up before they are open. Harry is always there doing what ever is needed. What a nice person he is. The entire staff is super. Lunch specials are reasonable and plentiful. Food is always fresh... More

We have eaten at Harry's several times since we moved to Winter Haven last year, it has consistently been 5 stars every visit. They have some of the best sea food in the area with a variety of fresh fish to choose from. There is often a little wait as it's a small place, but we'll worth the wait.

After reading all of the stellar reviews of this restaurant, we couldn't wait to try it. In order to beat the crowds, we arrived at 4:45 and were promptly seated. The restaurant is a little grungy looking but we like that and figured the food has to be good. They tout fresh food. On the menu it even says that... More

Best place in town to get seafood. Get there early and you won't have to wait. Grouper special is my go to dish if I don't pick from the fresh fish of the day menu.

Best place for a home cook meal. Excellent customer service. Get there early. Parking lot is small and so is the place but well worth the wait and the food is great

Harry's Old Place is a little hard to find and not very big and not new or fancy, but what a good spot! It is a throwback to a simpler time, when it was just nice people and good food. Throw in a nice view of the lake and it's perfect. We went for lunch with friends and everything we... More
