Harry's Sports Bar & Grill
The Perfect Blend of Sports, Food & Drinks
Harry Nikia has been a Sarasota resident for over 40 years and has previously owned a number of successful local restaurants including
"Dutch Valley" and the "Village Cafe'". At present, Harry and his son George owns "Millies" one of the most popular Sarasota
breakfast and lunch spots.
Harry and the staff treat their customers as friends and they know you will want to make Harry's Sports
Bar and Grille the place to be. One can surely assume Harry's serves quality food at a reasonable price and one would be right.
When you walk in you immediately notice the TV's in the floor of the waiting area and you are almost overwhelmed by the total
number of TV's there are. They even have your own personal TV in each booth.
But Sally does not judge a restaurant by the number of TV's but by the food so Sam and I and a group of friends decided to test the
menu. This isn't a typical bar menu but a well thought out selection.
One of the appetizers that caught my eye was theBangin Asian Shrimp (breaded shrimp fried crispy, tossed in a sweet and spicy remoulade) not only did this dish look beautiful
when it arrived but it tasted every bit as delightful as it looked with a fat juicy shrimp and fresh greens and spices.
the Calamari which had a crispy coating and perfectly cooked squid.
For entrees I chose the Flat Bread Philly Steak and Sam took the Jack Daniels Chicken.
The grilled flatbread was topped with
excellent quality shaved steak with mushrooms, peppers, onions and provolone cheese with a side of fresh chopped tomatoes, shredded
lettuce and chopped onions. Delish.
The Jack Daniels Chicken was char-grilled chicken, salsa, cilantro, cheddar and Monterey
jack cheeses, baked and topped with scallions and sour cream served with a side of yellow rice and vegetables.
When it arrived
everyone in our party said "what's that?" and they said they were going to order that next time when Sam told them how good it was.
We moved out to the patio where one of my favorite local musicians "MarcAnthony Roman" was playing so that we could order dessert
After looking over the menu I ordered the Passion Mango Cheesecake which was served with whipped cream on the side.
The taste was exquisite, a wonderful end to a fabulous meal.
This restaurant really delivers. Everyone in our group loved
everything they had, from the Danish Ribs, the Chicken Enciladas, the Fish and Chips and even the Personal Pizzas which were all cooked
perfectly and were delicious. Everyone also commented on how great the waiter was and how quickly the food came out even though
the restaurant was packed.
Sally will be making this a regular stop, so should you.
