“Don't Go to Harris Crab House”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

I have been to this restaurant about 5 times, but this past weekend will be my last visit. We were seated outside on the deck where we had a beautiful view of the water. It all went down the tubes when we found out we could not order from the full menu, only the 2 page menu they put in front of us. They called it the no-fry menu. If you want French Fries, Hush Puppies or heaven forbid fried fish or shrimp, you have to order it from their carry-out station and bring it back to your table. I have been in many seafood restaurants and have never experienced this. I am sure plenty of people were like our table, we loved to eat by the water, but would like a fried dish or two. Totally ridiculous!

The Cream of Crab soup had a sour taste, the steamed shrimp had HUGE veins to digest and the hush puppies that we did order from Carry-Out arrived hard.

No more visits for me to this place.

“disapointing meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

place was really in need of a makeover-maybe they got hit hard from the storms, soft shell crabs/crab imperial was just ok-over cooked.

“LOVE Harris!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We made a BIG mistake this August and went to the much lauded Cantler's Riverside Inn instead of Harris. TERRIBLE decision (see separate review for Cantler's).

We've never had a bad meal here, and will definitely be returning HERE next time for our crab fix!

“The place for crabs / seafood.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

Service was fast and accurate. Dining options include upstairs for view of Cheaapeake bay or outside near the dock. Food was great and lots of it. You cannot pick up and eat their sandwiches until you eat more than half of the filling.

“We enjoyed this place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

It is a bit factory like because it is so big but it was fun and we had a crab pot meal. It seamed a little dirty and the wait staff was indifferent. We were with two other couples and that made it fun.
