Good seafood in a great location

We enjoyed a very good dinner on our way back from the shore to the Baltimore/Washington area. It's right on the water and offers indoor and outdoor seating on 2 different levels. The menu has many options, and we enjoyed crab cakes, corn on the cob, asparagus, flounder, and pitcher of Fat Tire... read more

Service was terrible. One of our guests ordered a hamburger. He kept saying it smelled funny as he was eating it. Well yeah, it was bad meat. They didn't even offer to comp us they just gave him a crab cake instead. Average food and bad service

A favorite roadside stop in the past, but we haven't visited since we moved from the area 5 years ago. Same casual atmosphere, same fresh caught crabs, and same tasty treat. Many were eating steamed crabs, but I always choose softshells in season, and they were perfectly sautéed.

I picked up the menu and there was an item marked "new!" It was a Lobster Grilled Chees with two chesses, peppers and onions, on perfect grilled cheese bread. It was soooo good I went back the next day and ordered the same thing.

We went there for the Maryland Style crabs. A little pricey, but excellent. We also ordered the fried oyster appetizer. They were the best, juicy, oyster in every bite. Not all breading. Would highly recommend the trip there.

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. Beer was cold! A little pricey... 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.
