Best Calamari Steak in town

We go to HH's for happy hour often...My wife has the fish and chips and I have the calamari steak...Food is great, drinks are inexpensive and the service is super. I think the CS is about $8.00 (cheap) and not only is it wonderful but it's more than I can eat. Great spot, Great value, BTW GREAT... read more

My husband and I stumbled upon Harpoon Henry's as we were walking the harbour starving. I'm very happy we did because the food and service were excellent. I would recommend the shrimp tacos to anyone. They were fabulous! Good views as well!

More formal dining upstairs, but the lower patio is sort of outside, looking right at the harbor. Bacon wrapped shrimp. Really good, seafood salad and the hula chicken sandwich. You can't go wrong with whatever you get. Doesn't open until 11am.

Great view and very good seafood. Make a reservation and request a window table. Can also eat outside on lower level. Located at wharf among a lot of other restaurants. Fried shrimp and chips very good. Skip the clam chowder it was average. Service very good. Lunch also served. Reasonable priced

My wife and family visited this location on July 3rd for dinner. Nice Staff, Great View. Prices are what you would expect for a restaurant right on the water. I cannot imagine their rent or property taxes are cheap there. Lol. Although we did not stay for the party (we had small children with us), The club at this restaurant... More

On the way to catch the ferry to Catalina, we stopped for lunch at Harpoon Henry's. Avoid! There are much better ones nearby. Shamefully, I hadn't checked TripAdvisor ahead of time. We sat on the floor level terrace with a street view of the boats. The plastic chairs seemed rather an afterthought compared to the more comfortable lounge/restaurant upstairs. We... More

Truly enjoyed the seared ahi here twice recently and a lemon stop martini waiting for the sunset. Nice place at Dana Point Harbor

Happy hour martini night and wine night are a no miss. Prefer to sit at the bar unless with friends. Love the hula chicken.

An all round super restaurant...delicious cocktails and fabulous food. The oyster shots were exquisite ..I would return again just to sample these again. The calamari steak was light and extremely tasty served with garlic mashed potatoes and the best cooked asparagus (al dente) that I've had in a long time. We opted for the restaurant as opposed to the cafe... More
