Great seafood, beer selection and a really fun atmosphere! The Virginia oysters on the half shell were served with three sauces. One was a secret recipe and had just the right amount of heat for me!

Excellent place for raw ,steamed or prepared seafood. The chilled Seafood is full of blue crab meat along with steamed shrimp and raw oysters. Skillet scallops and shrimp pasta was a killer dish

Harpoon Larry's is a loud bar that has good seafood! Prices are a bit high but for great, fresh seafood, you will pay a premium. The actual oyster bar is great! wait staff is good but sometimes not as attentive as they could be.
