Established Seafood Restaurant Feel

Harpoon Harry's is located at the middle, on the harbor front, of the extensive Dana Point Marina. It is large and has the feel of a older and established seafood restaurant. The bar area is very large and decorated in wood. The interior can be dark and could be considered cozy if it weren't so... read more

Their happy hour is great. The tenderloin tidbits are yummy as is the grilled chicken/pineapple sandwich. The nachos are worth the messiness, too. Just don't forget the Mai Tais.

When we are in San Clemente, we always stop in Dana Point Harbor for dinner. This is our favorite in the harbor and has been for over 20 years. Always a great meal! Our favorite is the Hula Chicken. Excellent spicy fruit salsa.

I love eating here every time I am in Dana Point. The food is amazing and very fresh. The service is wonderful and the servers are very pleasant and know the menu and whats is good. The outside area is right on the water and is just a very relaxing area to sit.

We have been coming here for years, and the food is consistently wonderful. The seafood is fresh, and the amount of food is " gi -normous"!!!! We have had the calamari steaks , and they are tender and sweet, as well as the tuna stack, which is "fan-tabulous" . They have scrumptious mud pie, that looks and feels like 1/2... More

We came for dinner and were seated by the window. The view is incredible if you like "water and boats". It doesn't get much better than this from dry land. Both the shrimp and crab cakes as well as the calamari steaks were delicious and prepared perfectly. The cakes were sautéed with a good mix of meat and filler. The... More
