Ok food, nice view & parking

Walking around Sylvan Beach we were looking for a waterfront place and came across Harpoon Eddie's. We sat on the small patio overlooking the lake which was the best part! Pina Colada wasn't anything special and felt like it was just from a mix -- and didn't contain actual pineapple. Salad with... read more

Location and outdoor seating was perfect,right on the lake- we each got burgers and they were FANTASTIC! Only complaint was the beverages we asked for we were told they were out of, but then saw it being served to other tables.... not a HUGE deal, but server didnt seem to know drinks, or drink specials, or what to recomend as...

Went there on the 5th of July so this may account for the overall poor quality in food and service that we had. It was packed and it appeared they were totally under-staffed as they were running around like crazy. It is on the beach so that was nice, but that was about it. We ordered drinks (don't even ask...

Great location on the shore of Oneida Lake. Outside patio offers live music all summer. Food is good bar food, good wings. Great summer atmosphere.

It's a fun location and popular for sure. It takes a long time to get your food but the wings and clam were great. I hate beer I plastic cups but hey it's by the lake right? The waitress was super busy so it was hard to get refills on beverages.

Location, location, location! Can't beat the location! In Sylvan Beach right on the lake with both indoor and outdoor seating. Got a fish sandwich which was large and very good. Could do without the homemade chips but you can't substitute for fries (really people???). An extra $2-$3 would be fine. Also soda's come in a small dixie sized cup and... More

Harpoon Eddie's is in a low key, low end tourist town called Sylvan Beach. It's setting is spectacular. Watching the sunset over Oneida Lake is a beautiful thing, very dramatic. Typically, the food is good for the price but tonight it wasn't. I ordered chicken breast over Italian greens which in Upstate NY is Utica Greens. The greens were half... More

Visited Harpoon's three times this year. Food is good, place is very buzy so service is not very fast. Cuban sandwich is my favorite. Is on the beach, so certainly a nice place to be on a summer's day!
