Located a short ways from Port Clyde Harbor,this restaurant is worth checking out. Friendly staff and great food along with onsite parking are a plus for the Black Harpoon. You can dine outside on their patio or try the pub or dining room.

We use to love Cappys in Camden. Now the Black Harpoon is the best place since Cappys closed. The atmosphere is awesome as is the folks in the place. All are friendly and there is great food. We will keep going back.
