This is the WORST restaurant in ORLANDO – This is real simple do not waste your time or money this is gross and you will get sick it is dirty and smells terrible stay home or go next door to Joe's Crab Shack much better food!
DON'T EVER WORK THERE! – THE OWNER IS A NIGHTMARE! YOU WILL GET EMPTY PROMISES AND WON'T LAST THE 90 DAYS! HE STARTS OUT NICE, THEN WORKS YOU TO DEATH AND FIRES YOU BECAUSE YOUR SO TIRED YOU CAN'T STAND UP!
Best Seafood In Orlando – By far the best crab I have ever eaten. Reasonable prices, and large portions. I love the new location. Great atmosphere and service.
Can't wait to return and hang out on the patio.
Worst Service Ever!!! – During a recent holiday visit to the area to visit family, my sister (resident) insisted that we go to High Tide Harrys for dinner. The evening turned out to be disastrous! After being seated at 5:30 and ordering shortly after, I approached the hostess stand at 7:15 to ask to speak to a manager about why we had not received our food. We were told the mgr was finishing up something in the office and would be out. We waited 15 more mintues for her to show up. She tried every excuse...."you ordered appetizers", "someone at your table had a salad". Never once did she apologize and take immediate action. Once we got our food (2 hours), I had to go find her to ask if we could get tea refills. No one had ever offered to refill our empty glasses. After we had finished our meal, a young employee came to our table with a very cocky attitude and stated that he would "hold the door open for us to leave"!
I am a wordly traveler, including South America, Europe and Asia. In all of my travels, I can honestly say that I have never, ever experienced such TERRIBLE customer service - even with the language and culture barriers in various countries.
We had my elderly father with us and my brother in law who is battling cancer and was not feeling very well. We thought it would be a nice night out for him. At some point, he had to go out and sit in the car, he could not sit in the charge longer than 2 hours!
There was never an apology offered throughout the evening or any attempt to rectify the situation. I will never step foot into this restaurant again....there are too many other GREAT establishments in Orland than this one whereas they clearly did not care about the customer!
Love The New Location – High Tide Harry's new location looks great! I was at the restaurant last night and enjoyed every aspect.. same great food and service as the previous location. When I arrived the restaurant was very busy, but we were able to enjoy drinks on the outdoor patio Best crab in town and the most reasonable prices as well.
Best and Friendliest place in town – I never understand why competitors choose childish tactics to try to sell their own product by running down people. I AM an Orlando native and have been going to High Tide Harry's for over 16 years. They are like family and their product never dissapoints. I doubt you can find 2 dozen oysters for 6.99 anywhere. I love the place and our daughter chooses to go there for her birthday. Its great food, professional people and you will not see them on here griping.
Worst seafood or any kind of food in orlando – This is the worst place to eat in Orlando -the management staff is rude the owner has no idea what he is doing. I had the white fish it looked and tasted like the plastic food that my toddler plays with. NO TASTE to anything we had. The owner was the rudest person he just wants your money and then never cares if you ever come back. The place is dirty and smells like someone peed all over the place it is truly GROSS!
SKIP THIS PLACE AND GO NEXT DOOR TO JOES CRAB SHACK THEY KNOW HOW TO COOK SEAFOOD
MANAGEMENT CANDIDATES – If your a Manager thinking about taking a job here please be careful the owner has changed GMs 4xs in 5 months On the other hand if you like alot of empty promises and lies and enjoy working 6 days a week and 14 hour days this would be great for you. Seriously DO NOT LEAVE YOUR CURRENT JOB FOR THIS YOU WILL NEVER MAKE IT THROUGH YOUR 90 DAYS TOTAL NIGHTMARE IN THIS CASE THE DEVIL YOU KNOW IS A LOT BETTER THAN THE ONE AWAITING YOU
High Tide Harry's Seafood Restaurant – Three of us went to this new location and tried Harry's for the first time. Was disappointed that cold water *Maine" lobster was not on the menu anywhere, only "warm water lobster" was, and it was accompanied by pasta which doesn't cut it with me. The appetizer portions were small, the steak we had was fatty, and the scallops added to our meal were also few. All in all, I wouldn't travel this far again to eat seafood when Red Lobster offers actual sea food in decent portions. If I'm gonna pay good money for a meal, I don't wanna be still hungry when I leave. Sorry Harry's. won't be back.
Harry's High Tides East Orlando, FL – Harry's is by far the BEST seafood restaurant in Orlando.
And you can get your choice of seafood grilled/steamed or fried... not just fried. Portions are generous. The mussels starter is my favorote. Their hush puppies are too good. Easy to get full too soon. For veggies, choose the excellent salads. (The steamed veggies are good but the green beans are canned.) The baked potatoes are good. The fries well they ought to go get TooJay's recipe...but ask for the malt vinegar if you like it with them.
The service is prompt and curteous. Prices are affordable.
I do have one suggestion for them.. though. Offer the salmon sandwich cold with a dressing.... It is very good that way!
One bit of advice : you can ask for your beer in a glass. The fish bowls are a bit much for some of us.. interesting but a bit much. :)
They're moving in June (2010). 4 miles sough. Bigger newer building .. Should be gerat!
