Saw a sign for craft beer, it's only craft if you call Budwiser & Guineas craft! Got the chips & salsa. The chips were popping hot, the salsa tasted like jar just ok, the waitress brought us additional salsa but it wasn't edible, some type of water mixture that didn't even stay on the chip. Salads...if you like bagged lettuce... More

Had Shrimp and drinks there on November 1st. for lunch. The Shrimp was excellent as well as the other food that came with it. I'm always skeptical about Shrimp but this was so fresh and tasty. Will definitely go there again.

This is a location that is 1/2 way between where I live and one of my business colleagues. How fortunate for the both of us, as this place is CLASSIC Florida at it's best. First, you are in Punta Gorda......Sleepy little coastal town that survived and thrived after Hurricane Charlie. Second, the pier that Harpoon is located is chocked with... More

Food was fairly priced and the menu is extensive. We were there for lunch and sat outside. Great atmosphere.

This is a fun bar/restaurant right on the water with the perfect view of the bridge. Seating is inside or outside (the best!). Live music regularly, and not just at night - during the day also. The food is excellent with large portions and the prices are reasonable. Plan on spending some time relaxing when you go there.

Had nice salads and taco bowls. Seafood and soup were very good. Service was quite good. Not a tourist trap with just fried food.

Sat at a table on the deck right next to the water. Shared a couple of appetizers with hubby. Very good. Just so relaxing to just sit there and enjoy. Service and food were both great.

We had wings and fries. The wings were undercooked and unappetizing. I asked for the fries to be "extra crispy" but they were soft and definitely had been cooked a while before serving and were not very hot. The seating was uncomfortable. The view however was really nice on the water. Will not be returning.

We are motorcycle riders and being the first beautiful fall day in Florida decided to ride up somewhere 'North'. Ended up at Fishermans Village and walked around until we decided to eat. Most of the food is served in paper or plastic to-go containers. Plastic silverware. Plastic cups. Soup in styrofoam. Chili was Luke warm. Clam chowder was store bought.... More
