I had the she crab soup it was ok nothing spectacular warm cream and... More

Food is yummy but a bit pricey. They have a great selection of craft beer. There are growlers for sale or you can bring your own to have filled.

We came on a Saturday night. Very busy. Would definitely suggest call ahead which we did not utilize. We were told 40 minutes and it was an hour. However, once we were suited, everything good.

Compared to other local seafood restaurants--and there are many here--Harpoon Larry's is a bit pricey. Food is terrific and service is always outstanding!

This is one of my family's favorite restaurants in Hampton Roads. Great seafood and great staff. We are originally from Charleston SC and the food here reminds us of the great Charleston food.

The food here is always fresh and delicious! One of our favorite "date night" spots. I always get the Fish Tacos and I highly recommend them.

Restaurant is very popular. Food is very good, service was friendly, server was knowledgeable. Food over-priced compared to other restaurants that are just as good.

Nothing on the service it was good being the only ones at the bar. But the quality of the seafood was poor. The oysters were really poor quality. We couldn't order anything else because of that. The bartender was great she worked hard for her money and was professional and polite. I think management needs to look at the quality... More

Great food, Super Friedly! Dinner with my wife and cousin was so much fun. The pasta portofino was superb.
