    The shrimp was delicious. The Gouda Mac and cheese was lukewarm. Rolls were not very warm. The s'mores for dessert was unique and tasty. Service was very good.

    Ambiance and service were great. Food lacked seasoning, and risotto was a disappointment. Fish portion of my meal was a little undercooked.

    This place is a gem! So much room! We called ahead at lunch time but there was really no need. There are many many tables and various spots to eat. My party of three ladies were on the outdoor patio near the bar. The Bucs game was playing quietly on the TV and tables were spread out. The restrooms were very clean and service was great. My friend had the seafood trio and she raved about it. Another friend asked for a salmon salad. It was not on the menu but the waiter made it happen. The chef spoke to us personally and asked if we enjoyed our meals. Would dine here again!

    Scott or Scotty as he introduced himself as is as good as a server can get! He’s been there for like 7 years. We have had him multiple times but this is his last two weeks there supposedly. Hope you can have him as a waiter before he leaves! Aligator bites are perfect. King crab goes a long way. Order one at a time so it doesn’t get cold.

    Waitress was very nice, but the service was horrible. My meal was Luke warm. Cheese grits were old and stale. I didn’t eat them. My wife’s salad was good and fresh. My son’s meal was wrong so they took it back. My wife and I were finished with our meals before he got his. The men’s room was bad. Very bad. No excuse. They weren’t that busy. We won’t be back. Too bad. Seems like a really cool place. Just poorly managed.

    Server was also the bartender so it was difficult to get them back to the table. Food was over priced for the portions you received.

    We are local - not tourists. Harpoon Harry's is our go to restaurant for fresh fish and seafood. The foid is always good. The decor is delightful and our server Mary is GREAT. We always ask for one of her tables in the Outdoor Dining patio on the river.

    If you are going for the seafood the selection is great and the food is very good. nice quantity for the value, but I got a steak wrap expecting pieces of steak like at Taco Bell in a steak taco or wrap, but it was they very thinly sliced beef like a philly steak or lunch meat. At $15 I had to hunt for the meat among all the lettuce. There was supposed to be corn salsa and I had to hunt for it also. Just a few kernals of dry corn and the wrap was quite dry all together a bad experience for someone who doesn't like seafood. My brother go a shrimp salad however that was enormous, sister's crab cakes were fine and husband got 12 fried oysters that he liked very much.

    Two of us we eating when a group of 26 people, including 14 children were seated next to us. The noise level was terrible and we left as soon as possible. When we were seated we should have been told that such a large group was coming, and should have been seated at another table, since there were plenty of vacant tables and booths. The food was okay, but my lobster roll had no lobster taste and was more of a celery salad roll. We come to this place often and usually have a much better experience.

    Very overpriced for the quality of the food. Issue was not with preparation but with quality of the ingredients. A dozen oysters yielded the same meat as 2-3 high quality oysters. Scallops were very small as well.

    Service and server were excellent. Food was ok but nothing special, especially given the price paid, which was no bargain. Very different than when it first opened. Prob won’t return given all of the options in town.

    Friendly staff, great service and great meal. Ordered the mixed bag with clams, crab legs, mussels and shrimp. Also included enough sausage, potatoes and corn for 2 people. This was perfect for the both of us and nobody walked away hungry. The wood carvings and decorations were as nice as I've seen in any seafood restaurant from Key West to Maine.

    This was very poor experience. I came here when first opened and everything was good. This experience featured terrible service, and the food was horrible. I will say the fried grouper was good and we all wish we would have ordered this for dinner. The shrimp and grits are the worst I have ever had and were serviced in a tin plate like a dip. It had no texture and was not traditional at all. The burgers were not good, needed salt terribly. Just a very poor meal for $145.

    We had an incredible experience at Harpoon Harry’s. We went for a good sushi meal, and we were not disappointed! Rachel gave us amazing service and our daughter (and us) LOVED the Campfire S’mores dessert! Toasting marshmallows and making s’mores at the table was so much fun! We are locals and love to eat here.

    Food was pretty decent taste wise, could have been bigger portions for the price. Service could have been better, the restaurant was not busy at all while we we there. The home made chips that came with the meal were overcooked. You should offer fries as an option. Noise level was high with other guests being loud and the open ceilings made it echo. I chose your restaurant for the seafood, however I probably won't be frequenting your shop again. A few changes make a huge difference.

    1st time eating at Harpoon Harry’s Crab House. Food and service were excellent. We had a window table facing the Pigeon river. Had the Crab bucket which included: 2 crab clusters, red potatoes, corn on the cob, and Andouille sausage.
