Our first dinner dining experience in downtown Lakeland. Inside was busy and noisy; a seat at an outside table on the sidewalk turned out to be a much quieter choice on this pleasant evening. A departing patron tipped us "get the French baked scallops" and 2 of us did, to our delight. Outrageously rich, creamy and cheesy sauce covered an... More

Never had a bad meal there yet, great food and the staff there, you could not ask for better service. my iced tea glass never got past halfway and it was promptly refilled. I always have the crawfish etouffee when I go I want to try other foods but just can't resist the etouffee.

A great place to take out of town visitors. Great New Orleans style food, and possibly the best servers I have ever encountered. It is always fun to take our guests to a local restaurant rather than the chain restaurants! Excellent menu selection. The atmosphere is unique as it is a very old building right in downtown Lakeland!

OMG!!! The bananas foster here is sooooo good! Definitely leave room for dessert. It always seems busy when driving by, especially dinner time. The food is good but a little to spicy for my taste. Nice downtown location.

My wife and I have gone to Harry's at least once a month for many years. We have never been dissaponted with any dish served ... and the variety is terrific. My favorites are the fried oysters with sides of "smashed potattoes" and greens. My wife has tried many dishes including salads and enjoys Harry's as much as I do.... More

I am always pleased with my service and food at Harrys. The french bread with a soft cream cheese chive spread is addictive. We get a good amount of food for your money. This is our go-to restaurant to take out-of-towners.

We frequent Harry's and the food is always delicious; especially the grits! They are a must. The servers are always friendly and attentive. However, all of this is totally opposite to what we are greeted with every time. No matter which hostess is working, the initial moments at the restaurant are dismal. They do not make eye contact and we... More
