My husband and I went for Sunday brunch with another couple. We received our food and my husband's (filet mignon and eggs) breakfast was way below standard. He had to return it because the filet (if you want to call the cheap piece of meat a 'filet') was overcooked. The waiter took it back but the three of us had... More

We went for an early New Year's Eve dinner, and when we arrived at 5:45 the place was packed. Twenty minutes later, quite a few tables emptied and we were able to grab a window booth facing the harbor, which was nice. The waitstaff was terrific. It's just that the food was so average. The bread basket was exactly two... More

The location is what makes this restaurant worth while. It's an old school type place with a well meaning staff and good, not great food. It's like a comfortable, leather shoe that's been well worn and far from being eligible for the trash bin. I would absolutely recommend this place for a fun drink and some good food. Try the...

In my opinion Harpoon's has the best clam chowder in the area, loaded with clams, not potatoes, flavored with smoky bacon and thyme. The best thing here is the calamari steak, tender, lightly coated, and fried with butter.

Very popular watering hole with great views in the restaurant side. The bar and lounge has a very popular menu and semi-reasonable prices. Calamari Strips and Coconut Shrimp are excellent as well as the fish tacos and soups. Good service even with the crowded conditions.

This restaurant is very clean and the dining area is very comfortable. They have a big bar area and live entertainment. The staff was friendly from hostesses to waiters. The service was a bit slow, even though it was not extremely busy and I would say the food was very average and a little on the expensive side. A few... More

This restaurant in Dana Point overlooks the Pacific Ocean and provides an excellent variety of fresh seafood. The Calamari steak is excellently prepared and fork tender. The fish tacos are another great choice.
