Hadn't been here in a while (preferring Bridges and the Jetty on the other side of Kent Narrows). My crab-cake sandwich was good; my wife's calamari okay; and our daughter's shrimp (on skewers, if I recall) was average. We shared a slice of key lime pie, which was a nice way to finish. The service was very good, as was... More

Hubby and I went across the Bay Bridge on Saturday to eat at our favorite crab place, The Crab Deck. We used to go to Harris' but frankly their food had gotten pretty average. But the weather was so hot and muggy, we didn't really want to battle the heat to eat hot food. (The Crab Deck has big garage-style... More

This restaurant was very good. Informal dining with the familiar piled tray of steamed crabs on large tables covered with paper, a nice family place. The staff keep the restaurant clean and tables promptly bused, with a smart and efficient wait staff. We dined inside, since I am not a fan of outside dining. We did not get the steamed... More

We had a delicious dinner and enjoyed the crabs immensely. We also had clams, steamers, mussels etc. Portions are very big.

Stopped for lunch on our way to BWI from beach trip. Wanted someplace on water and this had best reviews. Cream of Crab soup was amazing and very rich. Had Lunch stuffed flounder which was also wonderful and perfectly cooked. Also had fish tacos and soft shell crab. Evidently, Harris also distributes their fish which explains how fresh all was....

We went along to Harris Crab House not really knowing what to expect. Right from entering the front door we were made welcome seated in the upstairs dining area straight away. Don't expect fine dining because the tables are covered with brown paper and you get a wooden mallet to crack the crab shells with. Our server Tiffany was really... More

You can go to other places in the Annapolis area, but for good steamed crabs and other crab house delicacies, this place is terrific. The down side is that it's not really on the water, but it has all the atmosphere of a crab house and the non crab dishes are also good. Worth the trip from Annapolis

I have lived in MD for almost 40 years and have been to almost all the crab houses. This one is at the top of the list. If Ur not from Annapolis its only a 20 minute drive across the eastern shore but it's worth it. Parking is easy and free and there usually is no wait. It is directly... More

We called for lunch on our way to St Michaels. We have been several times before and have never been disappointed. You need to get here early as it soon fills up. We had a table outside and upstairs so we had a tremendous view of the boats and water activity. If you come here you really should have their... More

An informal crab house on the water with paper plates and brown paper as a table cloth. The food is average but I still enjoyed my visit. We saw the sunset over the water and enjoyed a platter of broiled seafood. If you are headed back to DC and facing heavy traffic before the bridge, you can pull over here... More
