Harpoon Henry's has been in Dana Point Harbor as long as I can remember. I ate there recently and would not recommend it. The food was terrible.

Harpoon Henry's opened in 1975. It is owned by Wind & Sea Restaurants, Inc. who also operates a restaurant by the same name not too far away in the harbor. It specializes in seafood as does the Wind & Sea Restaurant. The locals know it for its happy hour. Most every day, the lounge offers a limited selection from the appetizer menu and about half price and selected drinks for about $4. There??s entertainment in the lounge on weekend evenings.

Cons: A Bit Pricey

The new menu created by Chef Lupe Silva is a welcome change. I have been a loyal customer for over 25 years (dining there twice a month) and have always thought the food & service to be outstanding. I feel very comfortable recommending Harpoons to my friends. The great view of the Harbor is another reason to make you feel that this a great place to go to relax and have a nice meal.

Pros: Nice view, good food, very good value

Cons: Happy Hour very crowded - arrive before 6

Harpoon Henry's is a spot you want to check out for the view ONLY. The service is less than satisfactory, the prices are extremely high for what you get, and as such, your protions are VERY SMALL. I had the SCALLOPS. Each of the (5) yes, thats five, was the size of a quarter, and there was (1) yes, thats one, strip of bacon that wound through the five scallops. With the cost of the dinner, I thought I would get at least good size scallops each wrapped in a strip of bacon ( you know, the way that most reputable establishments do). Service was horrible (we bike from place to place and always like to have our beverages full) we had to do multiple waive downs for more drink. Unless you are into paying top dollar for a view, steer clear of this location!

I met some of my girlfriends here for dinner and had a time, but I have to say that the best part of our experience was our waiter Dave. He was very friendly, attentive and efficient. We had never been there before and asked him for recommendations on the food. His suggestions were spot on. It didn't hurt that he was very cute and flirted shamelessly with us. I'd definately go there again...maybe when Dave is working.

One of the best restaurants that I've ever been to is Harpoon Henry's. From Seafood to Steak, the food is excellent. The ambience is great. There's low lighting, not noisy, and no matter where you sit in the restaurant, the view of the harbor is spectacular. On certain days, you'll also fine a live band in the lounge. The cost per dish is about $20~$30, so the price is decent for a restaurnt next to the coast. Also the service is stupendous. They's very kind, friendly, and make great recommendations.
Maybe I went off season but there didn't seem to be a lot of people there, which made it more perfect. Harpoon Henry's is a diamond in the rough.
