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,...More

Situated directly on the Delaware Bay with sunsets to die for, at Harpoon's on the Bay, you'll have to agree you've found paradise! A tropical delight awaits your arrival. We have plenty of free parking and a giant sandbox for the kids! Our umbrella tables are dog friendly. With outdoor and indoor, air-conditioned seating for 300 and three bars, everyone has a great time at Harpoons on the Bay. Entertainment nightly (in season) and a conch blowing sunset celebration. Everyone knows this is the happening place to be. Play "Corn Hole" while you wait!
