Tourist trap

The only thing this place has going for it is that where it is you get to see the sunset. Food isn't that good, Cape May prices. The drinks are always in plastic cups.

Excellent food and location. But would not have known about this spot if not for a friend who lives in Wildwood. Need more advertising.

Had always wanted to try this place, especially with the proximity to the evening sunset watching. Friday night was hopping with a 40 minute wait for a table. Upon being seated we ordered drinks (great!) and the ordered a burger, fish sandwich and the ribs. Also got the obligatory onion rings which you order by the half or whole foot!... More

Harpoon Henry's has an awesome location by the bay, where you can see the Sunset if need be. We actually stopped in for lunch with our pup and the staff was fantastic, providing him with a bowl of water. We sat outside which provided a nice view of the water. There is a nice little party area where you can... More

We were there on Saturday to celebrate my 50th birthday. From beginning to end, the staff and management could not have been more accommodating. Wonderful place to watch the sunset with great atmosphere, wonderful staff, and great food.

This is a good party place with live music. You almost feel like you're in key west. The food is just so-so and the menu is limited but the beach vibe is fantastic!

Best and only place to catch a sunset and a cocktail. Always a good pour. And you know it's a great place to watch a sunset when they post the sunset times daily. The onion rings are a must! Very casual and relaxed: shorts, t-shirts, flip-flops, or even straight from the bay.

The shrimp basket at Harpoon Henry's is reasonably priced and fantastic. the shrimp are large, lightly battered and properly cooked. the burgers were also very good. I was disappointed in the chicken tenders, which were very thin and had little flavor because of the lack of substance. The view from the outside seating area and the covered (bar ) area... More

Great view, needs a little sprucing up. But the food was good. I got a BLT that was very good with extra crunchy bacon. Burger and onion wings for hubby that he enjoyed as well. Relaxing, come as you are (right from the beach!). Could have been a little cleaner, but we enjoyed ourselves and enjoyed looking out on the... More

Open air restaurant with pretty good food, very cold beer and a view of the Delaware Bay was a nice stop for lunch. I guess being outdoors and close to the bay we should have expected all the little bug buzzing you all meal. The only distraction from a pleasant lunch.
