Met some friends there around 4 in the afternoon. Typical of a sports bar, lots of t.v.'s. Good draft selection and great tasting pizza. Good place to pop in for a quick beer.

We had a very late lunch - at first disappointed that a restaurant we had enjoyed in the past had closed down, we decided to try Harpoon Willies. It is regular American Bar fare that is done well. Our burgers were done perfectly - the coleslaw was good and the onion rings we added were excellent and not greasy. The... More

After reading reviews, I was nervous when a coworker picked this location. It wasn't the best I ever had, but it wasn't the worst either. The service was a bit slow, & there were only 2 other small groups of diners. The soda was more ice than anything, & when it was gone, it took awhile for a refill. Asked... More

When you pay $9 for a hamburger you would hope you could get something along with it other than a small tub of coleslaw or potato chips. Your interaction with the staff is very mechanical as they give only the bare minimum when they interact with you...We ate our food and were ready for our check...

Just ok. Nothing special. Burgers were good tho. A little on the expensive side but every restaurant around that area seems to charge at least $10+ for a burger with chips only.

Definitely a bar/restaurant with tons of TV and noise. A fun atmosphere with friendly staff and pretty good food. A great place to watch a game.

Went for fish at Harpoon Willies, the friday night special. However,t here was nothing special about this "special". The price was pretty pricey for the meal they served. They have a prime location in Williams Bay, so, with that in mind, they are popular with tourists since there is little competition in Williams Bay. As a local, I'll drive to... More

Monday night and whether or not nobody could be bothered I don't know but it wasn't great. Food was average fair with decent pub grub but nothing memorable. Fries were actually near cold when they arrived. Server was not happy from day one and she was "having a bad day". One of our party asked for a entree to be... More

Ate here with my wife and a few friends. Typical Wisconsin bar with an outdoor screened eating area across the street from the lake (not a great view, though). I had the pulled pork sandwich and it was flavorful even without any additional bbq sauce but the portion was a bit on the small side. Wife had a burger and... More

Such a cute atmosphere with all the decorations. Service was quick and the food was wonderful. No kids menu options but they do have grilled cheese, mac and cheese and the burgers are amazing!
