Great crabs and a variety of other seafood

A nice place for crabs with a variety of sizes and prices. I had the fried oysters appetizer and soft shell crab sandwich. Both items were outstanding!!! Casual Setting on the water.

After a long weekend on Chincoteague Island, we stopped at the Harris Crab House for a bite to eat on the way home for a late lunch. We split the 2 crab cake meal and enjoyed it very much. While it was a hot day, we still went upstairs and ate outside in the shade and enjoyed it very much.... More

Very close to Rte. 50, this fantastic waterfront restaurant has an upstairs dining area that overlooks a very busy coaster waterway---lots of ships and boats cruising by as you much on soft shell crabs, fried oysters, Maryland crabs, and even fresh scallops. Lots of beers to choose from. We will definitely stop here on our way over to Ocean City,... More

Have fond memories over the years coming back from ocean. Always had great food and service. Few weekend ago I stopped by after five year hiatus, Soft shell crab sandwich small and overdone. Waitress did not know type of clams I wanted and said they were out. Went to manager and she placed the order. Service was slow and uneven.... More

We drove 2 hrs for crabs and shrimp for my husband's birthday. Crabs were musty, mushy, and not very good. They were small for ex-larges. We had crab in PA the night before that were fresher, better prepared with firm meat and better spice. We will not make the trip again. Steamed shrimp were drenched in oil and were not... More

I ate here with my family for lunch and we really enjoyed our meal. I had the crab cake sandwich and have to say it was probably one of the best crab cakes I've ever had. Plenty of crab and not too much filler with the right amount of seasoning. Everyone else enjoyed their meals also (oysters & ribs). The... More

Off the beaten track of Rt.301,( I think it's exit 42)finds this unremarkable building with great fish and friendly servers. We just returned from a short trip north stopping overnight nearby and were lucky to stumble on this restaurant. Outdoor seating(also indoors)on a small deck overlooking the marina and we were lucky that it was after 5 PM so the... More

My wife and I enjoyed the all you can eat crab feast. We never had to wait they always had fresh trays coming out to the table. Also don't miss the homemade nuttybuddy ice-cream bars.

Last year, my first time at Harris', I got the all you can eat steamed crabs. This year, due to a time crunch, I ordered 2 stuffed soft shell crabs. As a former resident of Maryland, I am quite picky about my crab (no pun intended...). I should have known Harris Crab House would do it right. My very large... More
