It’s exciting to see some action happening at Adriatica and I’m sure we’re all looking forward to finding out what kind of restaurants and shops will fill it in as it matures. But one restaurant got the jump on the Riva section of Adriatica and is going strong – Harry’s at the Harbor.
I had the chance to go over there for a girls’ night out on Thursday night and it was a fun experience. I love the light and bright interior at Harry’s. Rather than going with the dark-wood-everywhere concept that is too common (in my ever so humble opinion), they kept things light and airy with the color choices, and the expansive windows overlooking the water add to the feeling.
My friends and I had a lovely server named Jordan who quickly set us up with a table to accommodate the ten of us. She expertly described the house wines and got us set up with our adult beverages quickly (I went with Franconia Wheat, but the Crème de Lys Chardonnay was pretty popular).
We went heavy on appetizers, so I can’t tell you much about the entrees. I will tell you that the Mediterranean flatbread was fantastic, and the calamari was cooked to perfection with nice spicy sauce on the side. The shrimp on the shrimp and avocado cocktail were just beautiful. And I have to say the pita at Harry’s is really perfect.
There were plenty of flatscreens scattered about so everyone was able to get their soccer and baseball fix while we visited.
My only complaint about the evening was that they had sound from one of the games turned up fairly loud. With the buzz of a busy restaurant, it was still impossible to understand the announcer so it just added additional unnecessary noise. But my friends and I? We still managed to talk.
After we finished up with our food, we moved out to the patio for the rest of the evening. It was a beautiful evening to enjoy the gorgeous setting overlooking the water. It’s the perfect spot for sharing a cocktail and hatching a plan with good friends.
So, welcome to McKinney, Harry’s at the Harbor. We are glad you’re here!
