We went to Newport News to visit my niece who is stationed at Langley Air Force Base. The hotel suggested this restaurant so we went. Best decision for food that we could've made. Service was great. The food was delicious. Best sweet potato fries I've ever had. Good prices too.

Have heard many good things about Harpoon Larry's and decided to try. Restaurant was bustling with business. The waitstaff was excellent. The menu offers a very diverse selection and anyone could find something they would like. I had a broiled seafood platter which was very good. I would return, check this place out you will be happy that you did.

I and my husband went there on Wednesday. They have half price wine (both bottles and glasses) that we enjoyed a couple bottle of wine. Their prices are set so reasonable! For example, William Hills Chardonnay is so often sold around $13 in retail stores, but they charge only $24 for a bottle as a regular price. So, we paid... More

Food is good, friendly, efficient wait staff. The acoustics are not as they might be, if does get a bit loud, it's often crowded, too.

Practically a Tidewater institution, I've been coming to Larry's for years. The new location seems larger than the old Hampton haunt, yet it still has a similar fun character. Great place for happy hour and pub style food. Fish was fresh although my seared yellowfin tuna was served up medium grilled, yet still tasty. Great fried calamari!
