I enjoy Southern, Cajun and Creole food. Harry's is one of the best places to find this food in Central Florida.
It is conveniently located in downtown Lakeland and is not only a great restaurant, but has a nice little bar scene as well.
The interior is light and cheery, and you have your choice of dining inside or outside on a patio that fronts the street with a lovely park on the other side.
Their menu features some fantastic appetizers including Boudin Balls, a New Orleans favorite with Cajun sausage, rice and Creole seasoning deep fried and served with a remoulade sauce.
Another great one is VooDoo Shrimp, sauteed in a Creole style garlic herb butter sauce.
I love their Harry's Original Gumbo She Crab Soup of the Day. They also have a great selection of salads along with hamburgers, sandwiches and fish or shrimp tacos.
Their Bourbon Street Favorites menu includes Jambalaya, Shrimp Etouffee, Shrimp n Grits, Chicken and Grits.
Their Signature Dishes feature Salmon Rockefeller, Shrimp & Scallop Orleans, Chicken Baton Rouge, New Orleans Rib Eye and a host of southern and Cajun style side dishes like red beans and rice, sweet corn grits, collard greens, and fried grit cake.
Their dessert menu is just as extensive as their main menu.
Harry's has a full bar with a wide selection of wine, craft beer, and a large collection of specialty cocktails such as a Cool Goose Martini and a Rhythm & Blue Margarita.
Harry's is open Sunday through Thursday from 1100am to 1000pm and Friday and Saturday from 1100am to 1100pm.
