“Nice lunch and wonderful view”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2014

On the pier, great to eat on the rail and enjoy the beautiful weather. I enjoyed my Prime rib sandwich, it reminded me of the sandwiches you could only get in Rhode Island (for you traveling Rhodies longing for a taste of home) buttered toasted roll, tender beef, next time I would add a slice of swiss cheese.
Fish sandwich was fresh and good both meals came with fries.
Locals say it is a tourist trap but it was fine for us. We were waiting for our hotel room to be ready and this made for a nice beginning to our great stay in Punta Gorda.
Restaurant is located at the end of the pier at Fisherman's Village. Lots of great shops and several other restaurants on the pier.

“Nice view, good service, food not very good!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014

We went for lunch today and saw the sign for specials and the crab salad looked good. Fortunately, I asked the server, "What kind of crab?" Her reply, "It's not real crab." We should have left to try one of the other seafood places on the 'wharf' but decided to try something else. Poor decision. The chicken salad Caribbean wrap had no distinguishing taste of chicken. I ate two bites because honestly, that was all I could stand.
My wife had fish and chips and said from the first bite, it was greasy and it doesn't have to be that way.
It's obviously popular, nice setting and the servers work very hard. We didn't complain to them at all. But we won't go back.

“only nice thing was the view”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014

no doubt... the view is sensational and ideal to watch the sunset. food was below average. i had the clams and mussels combo over pasta with garlic butter. did not taste the garlic much... i think they used oil in stead of butter... it was just greasy and no buttery taste at all. on top of this... fork and knife were plastic.
i would not eat here again. would only suggest a drink to watch the sunset - not more.

they do not accept reservations below 25 persons...

“Great Location!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

If you are looking for a beautiful waterfront view, Harry's is the place. It's low key, picnic table style seating is a great place to take the kids and see a dolphin or two splash close by. Food is ok, but I like the scene better!
