“service was shoddy”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

we took a friend that just moved to pt charlotte for a stroll to fisherman's village. she had never been there and we decided to take her for a little refreshment to harpoon harry's. it has a nice view of the harbour and a island feel. then the waitress appeared at out table. we ordered and were told that there were no substitutions. i told her we did not want a substitution, only to leave the dressing from the reuben. again she said no, the attitude you had to see. it was unbelievable, it was so embarrassing.....our friend could not believe her attitude. she was definitely not an assett to the restaurant. we decided to order something that didnt need a ** substitution**. when she brought the food to us she slapped it down in front of us.... you could tell she was angry, i mean if she isnt happy there, she should leave...... needless to say the tip reflected the bad service. we will not go there anymore; there are other restaurants there that know how to treat people. our friend was totally digusted,,,,, what a welcome from harpoon's harry for a new resident of charlotte county!!

“Great view”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

We sat outside on the water. We were so fascinated by seeing dolphin jumping right in front of us. It was hard to concentrate on eating while seeing these fascinating creatures. Something a Midwesterner never sees. How cool. This is located at the end of Fisherman's Village shopping mall. They also have a good happy hour. The food was good.. Nothing fancy, or special, but great atmosphere.

“Beutiful view and great food.”
Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

We always go to Harpoon Harry's when we go to visit family in Cape Corral Florida. I love sitting outside overlooking the water. It is nice to go to also for the quaint little shops and the vendors that are selling hand made goods. Go ahead try it, I know you will LOVE it too!!!!!

Great location, right on the end of the dock. Food and beverages are excellent, and it is a great party atmosphere.

“Service? LOL!”
Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

We sat down and waited 18 minutes and nobody came over to see us. My wife goes to ask for a server, and 10 minutes later, still nobody.

Needless to say, we left.

It was Labor Day Monday and NOT busy. Disgusting.
