This Mill District gem boasts familiar food, great drinks and moderate prices with an elegant flair. – In Short
This neighborhood favorite offers traditional American food with a up-scale twist. Serving up large dishes of everything from turducken burgers to crab crusted Mahi-Mahi to pan seared duck breast. With a special each day of the week and a happy hour that lasts all week, how can you go wrong?
Just plain terrible service – I live in the neighborhood and went into this place one night when it was quite crowded. I started out at the bar and had very average service to start. When I was almost done with my second drink, a bar-back swooped by a grabbed my drink before I was finished (and it was clearly NOT empty). When I complained and asked for another drink, the bartender grabbed my credit card (I had a tab open), closed my tab, and slammed it down in front of me. Needless to say, I left no tip. This was the rudest service I have ever had in my life. I have never gone back (despite the fact that I live just 1 block away and it is by far the closest bar and restaurant to my condo).
YUM!!! – ..Love how everything on menu is from scratch. So many restaurants forget the minutia, but nit Harrys---it's obvious they take pride in their product.----Will eat there again!
good vibes – First time in. went for happy hour 4- 6 ish. Great atmsophere, nice decor, cant wait to go back to hang out on patio in the summer. Downtown but without the crazy crowds . sat at bar , had an awesome appetizer. Service was fastest I have ever encountered downtown. Fancy place without the stuck up staff we have ran across in OTHER establishments.
Bartender Alex is the best!!!! Very friendly, personable place. Even one of the owners chatted with us. Free parking, low hassle, LOVED it!!!!!!!
Great new place to try – We decided to try out this new restaurant and I was pleasantly surprised. It seems pretty trendy because of the decor, but it wasn't too expensive for us to get an appetizer, meals, and drinks. Harry's burger was one of the best ones I've ever tasted, incredibly juicy and too messy and gooey to pick up. I'd def go back!
Great Food and Great Witress – We had a party of six , three couples and trying Harry's for the first time as a holiday get together. The food was great, reasonably priced and we loved our waitress. I am a burger critic and this is one of the best burgers in Minneapolis! Others at the table had the Wisconsin Fish Fry and Pork Chop and everyone loved the meal. We all agreed we would return in 2008!
Unattentive service, nothing special about the food – We spent a birthday dinner at Harry's before going to a show at the Fine Line. The ambiance was bland and the lighting terrible, as we were seated in the front room by the door, very cold in the winter too.
The waitress, obviously not concerned due to the obligatory 15% added to groups of 8 or more, was unattentive. She did not bring salads before the meal, the food was cold and the scallops not cooked through. Since she did not bother to check, and we had a show to get to, so we were left unsatisfied. In addition, despite the gifts and toasting, she didn't bother to recognize the birthday, which at most restaurants would be obvious.
The only positive thing iabout the restaurant s free parking. As for the waitress, she ordered us a cab. Thanks Marcy!
Best Comfort food in Downtown – My wife and I stopped in for a quick drink before going to the Guthrie and ended up getting a quick bite to eat after being enticed by the menu. The Bar tender talked us into some great appetizers like the artichoke dip and beef ribs. They were both very good but the real surprise came from the entree menu: we had the Mahi Mahi and PotRoast. These entrees were presented perfect and at a very affordable price. We shall return!!
Excellent Food Great Price – We had a group of 25 that all thoroughly enjoyed our food and we never saw any flaw in service that others have talked about? My Company really likes to have dinners at Harry's because of the Great value on the menu with the Upscale dining room. We had drinks in the bar before we moved to the back room for a private dining. The free parking is an added bonus when you have to pay for as many people to park as our Company does. The other great thing was that we all could walk to the Guthrie without having to pay again. We have been to Harry's twice for events and will return again!! The only problem we had was that we didn't get the validated parking the first time so I had to personally pay.
Oh no... – I was there for dinner on Saturday, 11/17 around 8:30pm with 3 other people. We were promptly seated but that's where the good part ends. After waiting for approx 15 minutes to get our wine, we ordered our food. After an hour, and no food in sight (server kept saying it was coming, but we weren't seeing any food coming out of the kitchen), we decided to leave - by this time it was 10pm! At that point, server said "I don't know what to tell you". The entire staff seemed to be arguing near the kitchen - obviously they were having issues.
