I have been on an onion ring quest lately and today they were the best. Big, thickly breaded but the onion was still juicy!! Awesome. The burger was done to perfection and was good quality meat. A special note about our waitress Emmie, one of the very, very few waitstaff that brought the sharing plate and the special request for... More

We stopped in for a couple of drinks after eating dinner at another establishment. But we ordered a couple of appetizers to try. The clam strips were excellent and the nacho's were awesome. I feel like the chips were homemade and lots of chili type spices in the nacho's. Real cheese also. I like this place and will be back... More

Our boat captain recommended Harpoon Willies for lunch. We were seated right away, the waitress was friendly and attentive, and the food was fantastic! I had the blackened tuna sandwich which is big enough for 2 ladies to share. The only complaint we had is they don't have a kids menu. So, be prepared to pay adult prices for kids... More

Harpoon Willies has incredible food and great service. The Grild Cheese with the bacon and tomato is my new favorite Grild Cheese. The calamari and matzerella sticks are also super good. I love Harpoon Willies and will surely come back.

Friendly staff and an interior you would expect with a name like "Harpoon Willies". Boats on the wall and old signs and booth-y tables and a long bar and 70s rocky blues playing over the sound system and windows to the lake across the road.

Great service, great food. Shrimp scampi pizza is amazing. Great burgers as well. Always Super busy, but we can always get a seat at the bar or a table with just a short wait. Inside seating and screened in patio. We stopped in on New Year's Eve, and haven't missed many Friday's since. Can't say we've ever had bad service... More

Harpoon Willies is a very good restaurant that is across Route 67 from Lake Geneva in Williams Bay. The food is good and there place is usually busy, but not too busy to find a table to eat. The bar area can be a little noisy.

Excellent food in fun surroundings. You have to like it noisy . Fish fry is my favorite and worth the travel. Sit on the screened in porch and enjoy the lake view.
