Harry's Old Place
is at its heart, a neighborhood restaurant. Folks drop by for
a quick bite or bring in friends while 'doing the town'. Harry's
menu is designed to make it easy for you to enjoy yourself. Harry
says, "We just want you to have a good time".
Located on the shores of Lake Ned
in beautiful Winter Haven, Florida, Harry's Old Place offers
a large assortment of fresh fish from both the Atlantic and the
Gulf. Typical choices might include tilapia, monkfish, flounder,
cod, haddock, salmon, Chilean sea bass, and more. It is not unusual
to have 12 or more fish listings on the daily catch boards, which
are positioned throughout the restaurant.
One of the choices not listed is
instead on the menu. Grouper can be had fried as in fingers or
a sandwich, broiled with any one of the many free toppings like
cilantro and green peppercorn or jerk seasoning among others.
Or you can have it baked as the house specialty, Harry in a Bag.
Topped with crushed pecans, ritz crackers and assorted seasonings,
this entrée is probably the #1 seller on the menu.
Don't forget what isn't in the bag
though. Known throughout Polk County as a fine seafood restaurant,
Harry's Old Place also offers a good assortment of steaks, in
addition to chicken and pasta. Filet Mignon, delmonico, ribeye
and new york sirloins are always available. On Tuesdays
we have Twin Lobster Tails for $16.99. Wednesday features Prime
Rib for $15.99, and Thursday is Surf and Turf for $18.99.
Ken the chef always has a different special on Friday and Saturday,
frequently using seasonal items.
'Besides fresh fish and succulent
steaks, Harry's has quite a few appetizers to get you started.
Baked or steamed oysters, fresh steamed clams or mussels, Florida
gator bites or the house specialty, Onion Loaf. This tasty loaf
of sweet onions, coated and fried has been on the menu since
they first opened their doors an 1980 as Harriston's. A move
to a larger location resulted in the name change when the partners
returned to the rustic building in Garden Grove in 1992.'
