This resturant has great atmasphire. Views of the harbor and all the boats. The food was outstanding and service excellant.
Tuna stack is the best. Maddie was very good and patient
We could not of been happier our server was fantastic and the food was excellent!
It’s been a long time since we ate here and I had forgotten how good the food is. We went at a quiet time between lunch and dinner so the noise level was great for conversation with our friends. Two of us had the calamari steak…something hard to find on local menus. Our friend had the Cioppino and I had the shrimp and chips. It was all delicious. The service was a little slow for the quiet hour, but the staff was probably light then too. And our servers were fun and provided everything we needed.
Food was awful.
Good was horrible and over priced
Great seafood ! Great veiws!
We enjoyed a three couple dinner on a Friday night (reservations a week in advance) and it was a great view, good food and a room in which you could have a normal conversation with one another - a rare gift these days.
outdoor dining wonderful with the view of boats and panorama of the Harbor
The halibut piccata was fabulous. Cooked perfectly accompanied with rice pilaf and asparagus. The sourdough bread was not as some others I have had. It was a bit dry. The butter was very hard difficult to spread on the bread. Though very blessed and grateful to have great food.
Want a place with a nice view while enjoying dinner. The food was okay so this is not the place if you are looking for fine dining.
Great view of the harbor. Good food and service. Food tasted fresh.
Go for the views, calamari steak, and coconut shrimp. Don’t forget to order the mud pie for dessert - you won’t be disappointed!
Great view, great food, great service, great time! :)
We were at Harpoon Henry's for Brunch . Service ,food and ambiance were excellent .
We did have a problem finding a parking spot and had to spend time looking for one . So ,if you go to Harpoon Henry's on a Sunday be prepared for parking problems .
Great place for a Sunday brunch with great view right on the harbor. Good food and great wait staff.
Excellent location with front view to the the Dana Point marina docks, Spacious, comfortable yet simple and relaxed. Very good and friendly service. Tasty food with good options. Reasonable price for the whole experience.
Very good calamari and fish & chips - clam chowder was good too! The wait service from Brittany was outstanding!!
A great place for a Family Dinner gathering to catch up, eat good Food & Drinks and have a great View! Service was very good too!
One guest’s lunch arrived after other guests had eaten. Server apologetic, but only 1 cocktail taken off bill. The lunch should have been taken off the bill.
Such great staff they actually took us back to the hotel after we couldn't get an uber or lyft!
Great evening snd lace to view fireworks. Wait and host staff were excellent. Efficient and friendly.
Nice view, our server was nice and helpful but the food was terrible.
My shrimp was over cooked and tough. Food had no flavor.
Good tropical salsas for fish. Mahi was very good. I also like the pear salad. Not run of the mill ingredients
Very good restaurant. Great views and great service.
We made our reservation based on online reviews, and we enjoyed it! The seafood salad was delicious, we had very good service and a window view overlooking the harbor.
Our food was all lukewarm. Everything. As though it had been sitting quite a while. Service was mediocre, but I know this is a problem everywhere right now, with too few waiters serving too many tables. Will not return in the near future, but may give it some time to hopefully staff up.
Our waiter, Quade, needs a raise. Good man and good energy.
Everything was wonderful!
Our server was great! The view was beautiful. Food was yummy 💕
Our food was fresh and well prepared. We were seated in a booth next to the window. Our server was cheerful and efficient. Very good experience!
Great meal. The food was great, as were the drinks. The service was very good as well. Very enjoyable meal.
I found this to be a disappointing experience. The physical restaurant is nice, overlooking the harbor. Our waiter was congenial and his service was good. Unfortunately the food was only average and not worth the price. The mahi-mahi was on the dry side and the macadamia nut crust resembled breading. The orange mango sauce overpowered the taste of the fish. I did enjoy the rice pilaf and the presentation of the food. For the price of the meal I expected better.
We were seated promptly at a window booth with a view, great start. Our entries were served hot, portions were fine, service was a bit hurried throughout the meal however. Was celebrating our anniversary and where we had our first date 42 years go, have been to Harpoon Henry's numerous times over the years, décor is a bit dated, not up to the level it once was.
Harpoon Henry's is a great restaurant for a evening out, or really any occasion. Staff members are friendly and efficient, it has a well planned menu, the food preparation is excellent, and it is located in a beautiful location!
Always a perfect go-to for out of town friends who’ve just arrived!
Good food, great view, good service.m. It was ver nice.
Food took longer to serve. Servers are all young but very attentive.
My son and daughter are regulars during the Christmas holidays. This was our first Fathers Day dinner at Harpoons. While the dinner was good as usual the portions are small and we missed the dinner rolls.
