“Wonderful Mother's Day morning at Harry's”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

Delicious breakfast with 96 year old mother-in-law who was in heaven with the white tablecloths and white cloth napkins...and that was even before we had food. Wonderful resort casual atmosphere with good food. Only minor complaint was we all thought the coffee cream was plain milk. A Longboat Key institution and for very good reason. Both inside and outside dining.

“Hooray for Harry”
Reviewed 9 May 2014 via mobile

The food here was perfection. My grouper bites were wrapped in the lightest batter I have ever tasted. The crab cakes were quite simply the best. The scallops in orange and lemon butter sauce delighted the palate. Not cheap by any means but when a meal is this good I don't mind paying it.

“Elegant Sunday Brunch ”
Reviewed 2 May 2014 via mobile

What a wonderful brunch we had! The bacon infused vodka Bloody Mary is a house specialty so my husband, son and I each ordered one and we heartily agree!
I ordered the salmon with bagel and it is excellent. Portion was large and service was top notch, even on a very busy Sunday!
The atmosphere is elegant with white linen tablecloths and napkins.
Go to Harry's for brunch!

“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
