Food is OK, service is a little slow because it is so busy, BUT the view is excellent.

The thing I don't like it having to fight for a table - we were here at 2:30 in the afternoon and still had to wait for a table - and some jerks from Louisville (they were wearing tons of UofL stuff) jumped in front of us for a table.

Who wants to fight for a table during the afternoon - not me...

We have stopped in for lunch. Nothing fancy. Very crowded during season and tough to find a table. If I remember correctly it is 'seat yourself'. More of a bar atmosphere in the evening. We passed after hearing a loud band. We much prefer Scott'y Brew House in the center of the mall for a quiet evening with guests.

What we liked about it was many choices, kid friendly, and great atmosphere. The kids really enjoyed seeing the dolphins and the boats coming in and out of the marina.
Also, it has a possibility of a romantic get-together being near the water.

After visiting the shops and working our way down to the end, we arrived at Harpoon Harry's and decided this was as good a place as any to stop for lunch. Great DECISION!

Our server (Kim) arrived shortly after we found a seat overlooking the water. Have to give her a 10 star rating as she was over the top vis-a-vis service, attitude and everything else needed to be that good.

We decided to order outside the box and started with Conch Chowder (perfect for me, but too much spice for my wife) followed by Shark Bites - perfect! and then the finale - a crab sandwich. I must say the food was absolutely delicious.

The prices are reasonable for the great food. Now, we are looking for a reason to return with friends.

This is a must visit for lunch if you are in the area. If it's busy, get in line - the wait is worth it!

Had a great lunch! If you go a prime time be prepared to wait a bit for a table. View is nice being at the end of the pier. My wife and I split a Grouper sandwich that was Huge. Fish was actually hanging out both ends of sandwich. Wait staff was polite and efficient as well as helpful in answering questions. Seating was seat yourself when we were there. You need to be a bit aggressive to get a table during busy times. That would be my only negative. There is also a bar area to watch sports events in real time. A good spot for a sunset light dinner after a long day of shopping at Fisherman's Village which is also part of the pier.
