“late season”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2011

They seemed to be running out of a lot of things, so selection was a limited. Apparently, this was the last week of the season; they keep only part of the restaurant open till tourist season restarts. The appetizers were really good. The blackened items were the hottest I've ever had, which meant I couldn't finish the scallops in my blackened scallops with pesto fettuccine. Wish I'd just ordered them broiled.

“WONDERFUL FOOD & DRINK, GREAT PEOPLE, TERRIFIC COASTAL MAINE RESTAURANT & BAR”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2011

We have enjoyed the Harpoon Restaurant's "Poon" barroom for the past two summers. Not only are the drinks & food reasonably-priced & expertly-prepared, but the people are the BEST! The owner, chef, bartender & girls, who comprise the Harpoon family, all make their patrons feel appreciated & very special! George & Marie Rockport, Maine

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2011

After returning more than an hour late from a sunset cruise, we arrived after 9pm to find the
chef already gone, but the owner graciously agreed to seat us and offered to serve us the
seafood stew. We were grateful not only for the late seating and excellent service but also
for the wonderfully spicy & delectable seafood stew. We will definitely return here upon our
next trip to Port Clyde and Monheghan Island.

“Best meal on this vacation so far!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2010

We've visited this restaurant each year since the current owner took over. The food has been fabulous,
This year I was set on the blackened swordfish but they were out of it. The blackened halibut that I had instead was the best meal I've had in the 2-week vacation so far.
My husband had a mediterranean pasta dish that was excellent.
We hope to always find them open for business during our stay in the area.
