Stole one of Larry's T shirt sayings, but had a very good meal there. Staff was friendly and Bert at the bar was great. He reviewed the local beer offerings with sample tastes. I checked out the reviews before going and they are accurate, and made a special trip. I had the Captain's platter, with huge sweet potatoe fries and... More

The seafood is excellent. The Oysters Rockefeller special was good, but with a little too much water in the shell for my liking. The Stuffed Flounder was awesome. Our server, Teresa, was very attentive, even though it was busy on a Sunday afternoon. It has a sports bar atmosphere After checking the wine list, double check the menu for additional... More

This place is popular for a reason. It's decently priced good seafood. Lots of beers to choose from. It's busy and loud with usually fairly good service. Good selection of oysters! It's family friendly and good for gatherings. Often we go here in groups after work. In good weather, try the outdoor seating Basic. Not fancy, but Good.

Hubby and I eat at Harpoon Larry’s at least once a month. We love the food! The atmosphere is festive. It does get a bit loud in there but that’s how we like it. The décor is very nice and appropriate for a seafood restaurant. Makes you feel like you’re by the pier. There are several large flat screen televisions... More

I am never disappointed with the food nor service there. I must admit if you go at the wrong time there is a wait but its not because of service being slow but because there are always tons of people there.

A good place to go for fresh seafood. The staff is attentive. It can be noisy at times. But a go to place when one is hungry for seafood.

Great meal and service. Crab dip and Fish tacos are some of the best I've had and I highly recommend them.

I don't know Larry, but perhaps about 15 years ago, I witnessed a traffic accident in Hampton, Va. just across the Highway from Larry's. One woman hit another woman. Unbeknownst to me Larry saw it, too. I told the poor old woman who got hit, that I'd wait for the police, then I'd tell the Police just what I saw... More
