Atlantic City is known for is eclectic variety of restaurants, nightclubs, and tourist hot spots. The seaside city in New Jersey is also known for another thing: fresh seafood. Opened in 2011 on the site of the historic Dennis Hotel is Harry’s Oyster and Seafood, Atlantic City. This is a microbrewery that promised to make waves in Atlantic City. An affiliate of Dock’s Oyster House, this microbrewery was created and established by Harry (Dock) Dougherty’s great-grandson and his wife who were both seeking to reinvent the Oyster bar that Dougherty began in 1897. The restaurant showcases high quality, fresh seafood at reasonable prices, as well as some modern touches for all those who may stop into Harry’s.
Harry’s menu offers a dozen daily oyster selections both from the Pacific and the Atlantic, as well as multi-tiered shellfish displays of clams, lobster, and crab. This fusion restaurant combines sports, fresh seafood, and an approachable yet well curated selection of drafts, bottled beers, craft cocktails, and wine. The wine selection at Harry’s is a modest one but certainly not disappointing. With classic selections from Coastal California to the Pacific Northwest, you can’t go wrong with a glass of your favorite wine.
Harry’s Oyster and Seafood, Atlantic City is a fun, fresh way to spend an afternoon or an evening on the boardwalk. With a casual setting and an outstanding menu, Harry’s is a definite go-to.
