Nice lunch

Stopped for lunch and enjoyed excellent fried oyster sandwich, big fat oysters in a light batter. Crabcake sandwich was good but not memorable. It was on the small side (3 to 4 ounce?) And got lost on the potato roll. With soup or additional sides, this meal might be more satisfying. The most... read more

After my daughters had finished the Polar Plunge at sandy point state park we were starving and searching for a nice seafood restaurant! Found it! Crab imperial was delish as well as the potato salad, made there along with the hush puppies. I wasn't crazy snot the cream of crab soup or their crab dip but the others liked that.

Daughter and I were heading home from Easton when we made a little side trip and stopped in Harris's because it was on the water. Very typical fish house with paper table cloths which was very appropriate. Beverly our waitress was wonderful and suggested the minibucket that came with steamed 6 shrimp, 6 clams, 6 oysters, 6 mussels and two... More

We have been going to Harris Crab House for years. One year we stopped to eat crabs on our way to a wedding. Fortunately we took a change of clothes. The waitstaff are always helpful, friendly and attentive. The crabs are terrific and they have a wonderful house salad with housemade ranch dressing that I have yet to be able... More

Simple decor--like a fish warehouse. Friendly and efficient servers, acceptable wines, very good food. Competitive prices. The creme of crab bisque is outstanding. Barbeque shrimp is very good also.

$30 per person during restaurant week. One app, one main, and dessert. For apps we had oysters on the half shell (6), (good but small), Maryland Veggie Crab soup (good but not loaded with crab meat). For mains we had the crabcakes (2 per plate). They were very good and quite large. Desserts were their homemade Nutty Buddy ice cream.

"On the rough" fish and shellfish. Rough. Nothing special. Good and o.k. Service is fine, not exceptional.

Good finger food, priced for tourists...no wait usually. Iced tea is fresh, service good. Crabs seasonal, they have good appetizers.

The view was great, right on the water. As former Maryland dwellers we were looking forward to the crabs! I had crab cakes which were great and my husband had a combo platter. One son had steak and the other had side dishes and they are not seafood kids! The crab chowder was very yummy with a great sherry flavor.... More
