We had only stopped for some drinks and snacks last weekend, when they opened for this season. Seated immediately. Creamy crab chowder was better than most I have had in a restaurant. Lots of flavor, not like a flowered potato soup as most are. Wings and medium sauce were just right. Tried a new appetizer they are offering, 3 crab... More

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.
