Opening Day 2017 is here. Had to park like 2 blocks away. All 3 bars up and running, and the sunset was beautiful, and the only glitch was that we had over an hour wait and it's not even summer yet. Harpoons is often overlooked, and that's fine by us come summertime. The onion rings were hot, crab cake sandwich... More

We did come here in the summer under recommendations from friends. It does get pretty crowded and you do need to wait, but you can look at the most beautiful sunsets on the bay while waiting. They have live music and good food.

Is the "new Harpoon Henry's" going to water down their liquor and charge high end prices for the diluted drinks as well? Many locals and weekenders have gone elsewhere due to your ongoing cheap and greedy business practice.

Harpoon Henry's is now Harpoons On the Bay. FUN, food, drinks, music and atmosphere. Love the palm trees, bay breeze, dolphins and of course the BEST SUN SETS :) Can't wait until they open again in 2017.

It's a bit of a drive from the Wildwood crest, but worth it. I had a grouper sandwich which was delicious and there was entertainment. A guy guitar. He had great interaction with the patrons. It's outside mostly and this is why it closes end of October. But there is inside seating, which is where we sat and could still... More

Have eaten here many, many times over the years. The food has always been just "Okay." It's a great spot along the bay, with beautiful views. It's festive and fun, & the drinks are good. They usually have entertainment and that's pretty good, too. On our last visit we specifically went for their clam soup, it was 5:15pm and they... More

We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere of Harpoon Henrys. It is family and dog friendly and the food has always been a treat. The onion ring tower is a favorite must have, Everytime.
