AOL Travel Editor’s Review

What do folks expect out of a Virginia Beach dining experience? Usually, the elements Harpoon Larry’s has perfected: fresh seafood, sea breezes and a general Jimmy Buffet, cheeseburger-in-paradise sense of Zen. Larry’s isn’t the best seafood you’ve ever eaten, but it’s served in a no-nonsense, roll-up-your-sleeves-and-loosen-your-belt kinda spot, where the beer flows fast and the oysters quicker. The raw bar, by the way, is the main reason to dine here. Have a dozen raw boys shucked, toast the sunset with a frosty beer and stick around into the evening, when the bar starts getting decently lively.

  Had fried seafood platter. I get fresher and tastier seafood at home 300 miles from coast. Hushpuppies left in grease too long,dark brown and you could literally squeeze the grease out.(hushpuppies at neighboring tables golden brown, So ours were just overdone) But when asked for new ones we were refused by mngr!! stating they were suppose to be greasy,they were deep fried!! He just communicated through our waitress,who was very nice and agreed the hushpuppies were substandard but was so sorry her manager wouldnt let her bring us different ones!! Poor way to do business,felt ripped off to say the least. Will never go again and would never recommend it to anyone going to Va. Beach!!...   Read More
