Just stopped in for lunch today. Made an hour detour just to get there. In fact stop here whenever we are near Annapolis. Crabs are excellent with a great crab spice. She Crab soup is our favorite anywhere. Fun place, butcher paper, plastic trays, wooden mallets. They also make their own Nutty Buddie ice cream cones. Forget the good humor... More

The crabs are great, the setting is casual enough for flip flops and the staff is attentive. The breeze off the water was perfect with sailboats going by. If you're looking for crabs around Kent Island and a place to relax - this is a perfect option. As far as price- I only selected two dollar signs but that's ONLY... More

This is a staple for us! The crabs are the best! I like to arrive early so I can get the extra larges. The fried oysters are wonderful and the staff is friendly and efficient! Don't leave without getting a nutty buddy!

We won't return. It wasn't a good experience. Overcooked tiny mussels, oddly tan-colored cream crab soup (may be eaten with a fork) was not pleasant, overly salted vegetable crab soup, warm slaw, unremarkable flounder. Good corn on the cob and iced tea. We were so hoping for a good seafood lunch experience but were very disappointed. There's a big sign... More

We ate upstairs on the deck in the sun with a nice breeze. Sandi was our server and did a great job keeping the crabs and beer coming. The ice cream we had for dessert was also refreshing.

If you're looking for a "nice" restaurant or brunch or gourmet meal, do NOT come here. However, if you're looking for crabs and beer, this is your place. Given the choice for a celebration meal--my family always wants to go for crabs and does not want to head to downtown Annapolis for anything fancy. There can be a long wait... More

I am a native Marylander and I have eaten Steamed Blue Crabs since I was 6 years old. No place is as consistently good as Harris'. Sit on the bay and you might catch a glimpse of the Crab boat coming in to drop off it's catch. A great place for Fat Crabs and Soft Shell Clams. A true Maryland... More

Dont pay much attention to my number ratings because we did not stay because there was only a Sunday Brunch buffet--it was somewhat limited in choices and very pricey for what they had...will try again for lunch and dinner as this place was highly recommended by the locals!! (Won't be for Sunday brunch though!)

This is less expensive place popular for it steamed crabs and pitchers of beer with reasonably good other food. It can be crowded in season with a fairly long wait. It is on the water with some tables with good view. Service is OK. Good parking and many other places to eat and drink in the area.

Our waitress was super nice, the crabs were large and x-large and delicious! The She-crab soup is awesome!!!!! I cannot wait to go back. It's totally worth the drive across the Bay bridge.
