We wanted a place that was convenient to our whale watching trip in the afternoon and this place was ideally located. We were received in a welcoming manner and service was as bright and sunny as the day was.

Fantastic Calamari steaks
The calamari steak is their signature dish. It's fantastic. I like to go for breakfast with the whole family and get the blue berry muffins before the meal is served.

We enjoyed the brunch; although the hostess tried to put us at a corner table when we asked for window seats on our reservation. There were many unseated tables when we got there. The hostess said they were reserved, but we also had a reservation. So we did not understand but did not argue anymore to avoid unpleasantness.

Fits the bill for a girls chat fest
My girlfriends and I recently spend a couple hours at Harpoon Henry's for lunch and a chat. The service was good, and the food was "okay" (nothing special). Minute Maid lemonade was served instead of fresh squeezed, which was disappointing. We had to sneak our napkins from another empty table when our appetizers came, but past that the service was acceptable. Can't beat the view from the patio (right on the Marina). They had a patio spot with filtered sunlight that was up and away from the crowd, so we had a great time without having to shout to hear each other. I wouldn't recommend it for a special event, but for a meet up on a weekend afternoon - it fit the bill.

room with a view
Great location. Make sure you dine in the front dining area and not in the bar area. Good fish house. Enjoyed the vegetables,
calamari and sea bass entrees. Prices are average for this type of restaurant.

I love calamari which is hard to find as an entree. It was delicious! It was beautiful that evening and the view of the harbor was gorgeous.

I loved my Alaskan Halibut
I loved my Alaskan Halibut with capers and lemon sauce. My husband's lobster was a little less than excellent.

A Classic Quality Reasaurant
Brought visitors from east coast. Everyone loved ambiance. Food cooked very well and good proportions. We all ordered different types of fish. Service quick, friendly and accurate. Prices.appropriate for location and quality. Not five-star only because we didn't order anything that would test them to that level.

beautiful venue and excellent food
We had a wonderful evening taking the parents out for a night on the town. The restaurant has a fantastic view of the Dana Point harbor. The menu is fairly diverse from seafood fare to hamburgers. They excel at both. My recommendation is the calamari steak, they are legendary for it.

Lunch at its best
Lunch food has been consistently good and nicely presented. Comfortable, beautiful view of the marina. My favorite is the calamari steak dish, others enjoy the fish/shrimp and chips.

Nice view of the harbor from the dining room. Good seafood and a nice wine list. The service was excellent. No pressure when we spent time visiting at the table after dinner.

We have been coming to this restaurant for many years. The service and food is always excellent and the view is to die for.

First time and it was really good!
The food was good, our waiter was great, but I'd say you pay for the view. Prices were a little high for the quality of food.

Great brunch spot!
This is a tasty and affordable brunch spot. We enjoy the patio... great for people watching. We've always had good service and found it very kid-friendly.

Relax and Enjoy
We had a lovely and relaxing brunch at Harpoon Henry's. The omelets and scrambles were both good to look at and to enjoy eating. The champagne was very nice too.

Good food, not special
This is a good restaurant - the food is good, not too noisy, midweek it was busy but not crowded. We were a little surprised to have our check dropped off without a dessert menu being offered, but I know if we really had wanted dessert we could have asked. We were ambivalent so that made the decision for us - I'm sure at least some of the time they could sell a dessert if they just offered it...

I live in the area and often take out-of-town guests here for the great seafood. My guests usually get the "tuna stack" or the cedar-planked salmon. A bit pricey but never disappoint. I always get the calamari which is unbelievably reasonably priced and the serving is two very large pieces. Service was attentive and there is valet parking on the week-ends. I gave our parking ticket to our waiter when he brought the bill and our car was waiting for us when we left the restaurant. All in all, if you enjoy really good, fresh seafood, cooked with a deft hand, you won't be disappointed here.

Amazing find on the harbour front
We stumbled upon Harpoon Henry's while exploring Dana Point while on holiday there and it was fantastic. We were a little late arriving (our taxi driver didnt know the way there!!). However I called ahead and being Brits we didnt like to be late, but they were totally cool with that and we turned up 15 mins than the table time and were seated and made to feel really welcome.
The food was excellent and the service was impeccable (again being Brits its all about the service) and me and my girlfriend were made to feel very welcome and like we were the only people there.
We stayed afterwards for drinks and the barman even helped get us a taxi back home to our rented condo. All in all this is one the best places to eat and have a drink.

We met some friends for an early dinner and were seated immediately at a window table. Our server came promptly and took our drink orders. We shared a calamari appetizer, which was so good that one in our party ordered the calamari again for his entree. We wanted to visit and not be rushed, and our waiter did just that.
Desserts are huge! It's a casual place, no table cloths, but the orchids on each table and candle that goes on automatically at dusk, add to the atmosphere. Very nice.

Went there for the wife's birthday with two other couples. Last minute choice. Glad we made it!

Perfect Day With Friends
The food was great. The clam chowder was full of clams and the servers helped each other and we were not rushed. We travel for one hour to get there but the journey is worth it. We keep going back but will probably not order the champagne hamburger because it doesn't fit into our budget. It is interesting to see it on the menu along with the wine hamburger and to know it is available to those who wish to order it---and do!

Had table by the wondows so we could look at the view of the boats and harbor. Food is very good, service while attentive can be slow at times.

This was our first visit to Dana point. Before arrival we looked for a restaurant to meet friends who lived near by. We chose Harpoon Henry's. WE had made reservations and were seated upon the designated arrival time. Service was fast and the food was very good. We had a party of four each ordering something different. We all agreed that each had a great meal.
I do not see how you can go wrong eating here.
