A Blast from the past with an incredible staff

We have been going to Harpoon Harry's for the last 5 years and have never had a bad breakfast. The décor is something out the 50's or 60's. The prices are very good and the service is great. We look forward to Ron's smile and maybe a short conversation. We were staying in the area and had just... read more

We were staying at The Doubletree Hotel, but wanted to eat in a local diner with more character. The staff suggested this place, and it was excellent. Good food, great atmosphere and surroundings. It's in the centre, so a great location to start the day.

This was our 15th trip to Key West and we've been going here from the get go. The breakfast is very good, but the place wouldn't be Harpoon Harry's without Ron, he always has a smile on his face and is happy to see you every time you come in.

Great food and quaint spot. Excellent pancakes! The service that morning was a bit slow but we were on vacation and didn't mind the wait. Nice place for breakfast.

The food here is amazing and you must ask for the Frosted Flakes french toast (not on the menu - its a hidden secret!) The service is prompt and efficient. The food is fairly priced and prepared and served within a reasonable time.

We decided to take a night off from more expensive restaurants for dinner, so we chose Harpoon Harry's. After reading reviews on TripAdvisor, was surprised to walk in to a diner. Our server was very attentive and refilled drinks frequently. She was also very friendly. Too bad the food was average at best. I had a CBLT (C = cheddar).... More

This was a good place to stop for lunch. Even though a lot of the reviews were about the breakfast we were not disappointed by the lunch. I had the Cuban mix which was very good and homemade chips which were also good. My wife had the mango chicken ranch that she really liked as well. The service overall was... More

We had not heard of Harpoon Harry's before arriving in Key West. We struck up a conversation with a local who told us this was her favorite breakfast restaurant. We checked it out this morning and it was a treat. I had Harry's Special, which had a tasting of three breakfast meats, eggs and toast. I grew up in Chicago,... More

We've been going to Key West for the past 30 years and one of our favorite casual spots for breakfast is Harpoon Harry's. The staff is extremely friendly, prompt and courteous! Hats off to Debbie, Cathy, Gary, "Concrete" Judy, Kirsten, and on, and on. Ron (who's one of the owners) is just wonderful, making everyone feel welcome and at home.... More
