But…besides the outdated decor…the food and service were great! The view of the marina is very pretty and a lovely spot to eat dinner. I had the macadamia crusted mahi and it was really delicious.

One word of caution, stay away from the house wine…it is terrible!!

We have had lunch and several dinners at Harpoon Henry's but I put off reviewing hoping my next visit would be better. The fish entrees are okay, nothing inspired. You can have some great meals at other restaurants in the marina but Henry's does have a view of the marina which is why we have gone back. We try different items thinking we went on an "off" night. Wait staff are personable but food takes a while, even when no crowd. The macadamia mahi and clam chowder were just okay. The shrimp tacos went uneaten after two bites. I ordered a $8 side salad and left the meal. The salads are good but the seafood disappoints. The bar area seems to do good business and there is live music. This isn't a family type restaurant, more for couples or small group. Last visit, kids were running around and chasing one another up and down the stairwell. It was 9 p.m. Really wish the menu was more creative and food more flavorable.

Nice location in Dana Point Marina with a fine view into the harbor sunset.
Very well done fish and warm sourdough, but a somewhat uninspired Caesar's salad.

Good cheesecake with berries.
Efficient wait staff.

Moderately comprehensive wine list.

Very good view of the boats in the DanaBeach harbor. Good food at a good value with very good service. Certainly one the locations you have to consider for eating on the ocean.

Monday thru Friday there's a nice happy hour special, with reduced prices on wine, beer, mixed drinks and a broad range of food specials. As others have noted, they serve a good clam chowder (albeit with too much corn starch), and the filet sliders are tasty but a bit of a mixed bag...you get two with your order, and while one of mine was plump, juicy and cooked to perfection, the other was thin and dried out.

Service and staff attitude are both exceptionally good. By the time you leave, you feel as if you've been welcomed into a loving family.
