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

We dined at Harpoon Henry's on Christmas Eve night. First off, not a lot of places are open for dinner that particular night. I had no problem making reservations just a few days in advance. When we got there, I could see why. The restaurant is huge! They had a large bar area as well as a large dining area.... More

I review restaurants on how well they deal with the big three: food, service and ambiance, with food being numero uno. This seafood restaurant gets a four rating because the ambiance was excellent with a wonderful view of the harbor, (5). The food was unusually good, (4). However, the service was spotty, (3). My wife and I were seated right... More

Was hard to get a drink at the bar, because the bartender was working his brains out taking care of orders. Probably need another person there. For dinner, two of us had seared ahi that was great, one had the ahi stack (which also had crab cakes) that was also very good, and our fourth person had the ono which... More

We went here to celebrate a friend's 29th birthday. Of course, it was the weekend between Christmas and New Years. The place was packed but we found some seats in the bar/lounge. The place was very busy but the staff was able to keep up, and the food and drink service was quite prompt considering the crowd. This night they... More

We were happy to find out they offered their regular menu on Christmas Eve. Lovely evening, great window table, solid cocktails, friendly and capable service, and delicious fish. This is a homey, comfortable place with a large bar area complete with fire place. Right on the marina, and handy for walking around and seeing the Christmas lights. We have been... More
