Harpoon Willy's

Portsmouth’s go-to for no-frills drinking by the sea.

By Catherine Smart

If you’re looking to spritz with some Aperol or sip on natural wines, this is not the place for you. If you’re good with Bud in a can or some street-legal jungle juice—and you can appreciate water views, minus any pretense—this is your spot. Expect picnic tables, ashtrays, canned hard seltzer, and good times. Pre-gamers, after-partiers, and buttoned-up types who just want to let loose: Harpoon Willy’s is calling.
