This was my first time at this local classic bar and restaurant. Locals must be proud to have such a historic venue to enjoy lots of great food. The crusted sea bass with mushroom rissoto was delicious and massive.

Here is an older tavern type restaurant that seems to have tried to go up scale at least with its pricing. Generally the food is good but it is a stretch to thing that the prices go with the design in mind. Atmosphere is friendly although a bit too much since tables etc are really packed tightly.

We had hair in our nachos, hair in our lobster sandwich and in our cloth napkins. Restaurant was filthy.

We go here often especially on Thursday nights to listen to Turnpike Mike. It has a great middle age crowd. The food and drinks are good and are priced average.

Harpoon Willy's is on the best places to go at the Jersey Shore for drinks and food. They have a nice large bar area with a nice water view. The bartenders are nice to talk to and are on top of things.

The food is excellent. Start off with the Buffalo Wings. They are one of the best around. Try the Cajun Scallops - they come by the 1/2 pound, they are big and tasty. Harpoon Willy's has a chef (grill) behind the bar. I highly recommend you try something from the grill. I had the cheese burger and it was one of the best I have ever had. Also try the grilled shrimp & scallop with seafood mash.

Overall, I have been here 5-6 times a year and my recent visit September 25 reconfirms that Harpoon Willy's is one of the best places to go after work with friends.
