Where the fish is always de-lish!

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 breitling replica 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.'
