Mother's Day 2022⚘ It was my 1st time visiting this restaurant. It wasn't crowded. The atmosphere was nice and serene. My daughter treated me to a couple of great drinks and an appetizer. The staff was very accommodating. I will visit again. Awesome experience!
Best creole food you’ll have in Ocala! The service is amazing, particularly our waitress Amy who went above and beyond to make sure we have a great time. The atmosphere is nice and cozy and the beer selection is great. They’re dog friendly too! Will definitely be coming back :)
This was an awesome date night! It was our first time but it exceeded all expectations. The hostess was very friendly and sat us where the server was excellent she said. Our server was Kolby and she did not disappoint. She kept our drinks filled and was very attentive to us the whole time. She also gave us her honest opinion about the food choices when we asked. The sign outside says Christmas in July get a $30 extra gift card when you buy a $100 card. We said let’s wait and see how the food was before we buy it, but we bought the gift cards because the food was amazing! The alcoholic beverages were also very delicious. We cannot wait to go back!
If you like Louisiana INSPIRED food then this is a great place. I wouldn't necessarily say it's NoLa "style" but I can see where the inspiration is drawn. We ordered the boudin balls as an appetizer, they were good just a bit over-fried. The gumbo had no flavor other than cayenne pepper sadly. I love gumbo and this just wasn't it. The she crab soup however was delicious! Very lobster bisque-like and good flavor. Main courses were the fried shrimp and grouper for my husband and the crab cakes with cajun rice for me. His shrimp and grouper were a good size and the batter tasted good also. My crab cakes were good but since I found two fish bones my guess is they either use fish to save on money or somehowbones fell in the crab mix before forming? Not really sure, disappointing but over all the flavor was good. Portion sizes are reasonable, too! Enough to take some food home. The cajun rice had clumps of plain white rice so it was not as expected. Dessert was the oreo "beignets". Delicious but not really a beignet. More like a fried oreo from the fair, still delicious though! It can do without the heavy sugar glaze. I'd suggest powdered sugar like traditional beignets and a light drizzle pf the chocolate. The atmosphere is nice with jazz in the background and the historic feel of the interior and exterior is really beautiful. I would return but would keep in mind the expectation of real New Orleans style food is not what is served here, at least not the evening we went, which is a bummer considering the founders are from LA.
Harry's provides a superb menu in a bustling and trendy venue within the beautiful Ocala civic square district. The food is fresh and delicious. Just be prepared to wait to get in to this very popular eatery. The only reason this wasn't 5 stars was the server's blase attitude.
