Just Ok seafood if you're used to MD crabcakes.

Good spot to have some seafood. Cream of crab soup was delicious but should have ordered a cup instead of the sample. Sample was literally two bites for over two dollars. Not worth it. Crab cakes was just okay, I have had better. hush puppies were typical, raw oysters were small but good taste... read more

After 4 trips to the Kent Narrows,Maryland, and about a dozen seafood dining experiences, we rate the Harris Crab House as the real deal and best bet for fresh seafood. First, there are great waterfront views both upstairs and down, and while not fancy, this casual dining experience is both fun and delicious. The menu is extensive, but we just... More

My wife and I had been out touring the area and wanted a good seafood dinner. I sent a friend of mine a text asking him for a suggestion. He suggested the Harris Crab House. We loved the place! It's definitely nicer than your typical tidewater area crab house but still gives you the authentic feeling of an old time... More

We were here with friends enjoying a sunset dinner. We had the rock fish bites and I got a crab cake, the rock fish was somewhat fishy tasting. The Crab cake was to die for. So don't waste your time getting anything else.

Yes, we will return to this one. While it is not crab season, they offer a number of fine meals that do and don't include crab. Definitely try the crab cake!!!

Sunday lunch. Crab by the dozen. On the waterfront . Fast and friendly staff and excellent dinner. Tuck away under the bridge and well worth the stop!

Many waterfront restaurants in the area, but none better for views and great steamed crabs or Friday night oyster fest (not to miss!) Staff friendly and attentive and family owned for 4 generations

Or on the way home from the beach. Seafood is outstanding. Ironically, we've never tried the crabs. We always split a Waterman's Catch so we get a sampling of shrimp, scallops, soft-shell crab, mussels, crab cake and hush puppies. Washed down with a cold beer on a warm afternoon and nothing beats it. Oysters in season are also fantastic!

I haven't had shrimp cooked as perfectly as they are cooked here since I left the Gulf Coast 30 years ago. Everything we ate: oysters, snow crabs, clams, and mussels were best quality and delicious. The service is fast and friendly. Nice place to go for a memorable Maryland seafood experience. Will definitely get Maryland crabs next trip.
