A place we always consider going to when we want a fish dinner

This restaurant has consistently good food. We eat here often as we are locals. The service is good, the Salmon on a cedar plank is wonderful, and the view of the harbor is always calming. I am sure some will feel the restaurant needs updating in the décor. It does. But it has quiet booths. I like... read more

I ate a late lunch there last week with my husband and daughter. I had the shrimp combination and thought the food was very good. Outside seating was not available that day but I am not sure why. We were seated at a table and not a booth. I think the chairs are not very comfortable but still had a... More

We went in for a late lunch. The place was almost empty so it was easy to get a seat. The server had been brought up from the quick service area to wait on tables. We ordered Garlic Bread, Shrimp and chips and fish and chips. The chips were soggy. The fish was more breading than fish. The same went... More

The restaurant was lovely and service was good. We were disappointed that the patio was closed at 2p on a Thursday afternoon.

I would give this a 5 star if the food hadn't arrived barely warm. There were 5 of us so we didn't complain, as we were all very hungry and didn't want to wait for any resolution. The food was very good as was the view over the marina. The service was also very good.

Overall a fine experience. Excellent service, wonderful view, good menu options at fair prices, and unlimited champagne for $7.95 if you wish. We had, omelettes and fried eggs. Nice portions that were better than average.

We were looking for a place for lunch and happened to find this place. We just loved the happy hour drink special (Bloody Mary). We had shrimp cocktail and split a salad. Was just enough food for the both of us. The menu looked great, but we were traveling and didn't need all that food.

The food is good. We enjoy the downstairs patio on the weekend. Love the brunch. There is usually not a wait. The service is great, and they do not rush your experience

Harpoon Henry's is a great little place to grab a drink and dinner. I loved the salad dressing they use! I've been there twice, both were meeting for a first date. It wasn't too loud, or quiet. We were able to have a comfortable conversation, while having drinks and dinner and catching a game on TV. It was perfect. I... More

Dinner in the lounge is a must when there is live music. If Phil Shane is playing, get there early. The patio downstairs is great for brunch or lunch with a harbor view. I highly suggest the Tuna Stack if you like ahi and crab cakes. I prefer a double crab cake, hold the tuna! A great combo of flavors... More
