“Could be excellent”
Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

We enjoyed good food and adequate service on our first visit. The atmosphere is nice and the wait staff is well trained, just a bit slow. Our server was pleasant but it felt forced. The food was nicely presented. A burrata salad had potential but lacked seasoning and was watered down by tomatoes that added nothing in terms of flavor. Oysters Rockefeller were good, not outstanding. Hogfish entree had good flavor, was hot, served with nicely sautéed and well seasoned vegetables. A coconut crust was a bit overwhelming for a piece of fish that could stand on its own. Creme brûlée was average. If you sit outside, beware of being seated at the table for two next to the air conditioning units unless you don't mind the noise.

“Lives up to expectation”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

Great little restaurant, set back from the main road. Very nice ambiance and a great meal. Eggs Benedict with grilled tomatoe and sauted spinach was superb, French Toast is crisp out outside, fluffy on the inside....Banana pancake was dessert quality, and potatoes were delicious. Border line fancy on the inside....well worth a stop

“Harry's for Wine and Appetizers”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

Stopped by Harry's for some chilled white wine and appetizers on the patio. The "harry’s fromage" with brie, gorgonzola, manchego, grapes, apple, nuts, honey and crusty bread $14 was excellent as well as "spanish tapas" brie and artichoke crostini; prosciutto and eggplant crostini; and bruschetta of tomato basil, garlic and olive oil
$12. Pair that with a bottle of Sonoma Cutrer at 20% discount and you have a wonderful time to pass the afternoon.

A good place to dine on the Key. The food is interesting and good. They even have a store where you can take home gourmet items.
