Just some information that is a little disturbing. Ken DePasquale is NOT the original owner of Harpoon Louie's in Jupiter Florida. It was William Coleman. I am not sure how successful and how good the food is in this new restaurant. One of the reasons the original Harpoon Louie's was so amazing was not only how it was run but was because of the chef, Ken Wade, who is not part of this new restaurant.
Ken DePausquale was hired to run the restaurant but loves to tell people he was the owner. William Coleman passed away 2 years ago so it is disturbing to me to see Ken is taking advantage of this situation and claiming ownership of something that is 100% false.
I hope the new restaurant is successful but Ken needs to be clear and not tell people the old Harpoon Louie's is open. Unfortunately, the old Harpoon Louie's will never be resurected as the original owner is no longer with us.
Yes. They're open! But they haven't had their "official" grand opening day yet. Still getting some of the kinks out, but worth trying. Great setting -- lots of outside tables as well as inside and then there is a separate bar area as well. You are right across from the beach so you get views of the water and the pier.
Also there's free valet parking if you're going to the restaurant (they give you a validation coupon to give to the attendant after you've paid your bill. Ask for it if you don't get it.)
Food -- fairly large menu and also a couple recited specials. Not sure why, but we also got a 50% discount on one of our meals (and saved about $16)...
This is what we tried: the conch chowder -- obviously homemade with al dente chunks of veggies and bits of conch in a tomatoey broth. We sent it back to get heated (sorry I like my soup VERY hot). Tastewise okay but I prefer it a little spicey so had to add in a few drops of tobasco and a bit of salt. Had the steamed clams -- these are little necks/cherrystones but a nice portion in a brothy melted butter to sop up or spoon up with nice slivers of garlic. Thoroughly enjoyed these...especially with the freshly made grainy bread with bits of cranberries in it (asked and received a second basket of this -- so good!). My husband had a caesar salad with grilled salmon (a huge piece of fish) which was perfectly cooked and lightly seasoned. He said he'd recommend that, too.
We saw some attractive platters of fish and chips, shrimp salads, and grilled grouper being delivered to some nearby tables...intriguing options for future.
They're just getting set up so not much wine choice -- by the glass they had Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Merlot, and one other type...
Service was very accomodating/pleasant -- altho' you could tell our server was still learning...but eager to please. Any questions? Just ask...
