Steamed crabs, shrimp, clams and mussels are always very good. Try their half sandwich with cup of soup - very filling and a good value. Cream of crab is very good. One of the few places where you can get full bodied soft shell clams fried to order. The orders are just too large for one - wish they would... More

The upstairs atmosphere is too bright with fluorescent lights. I felt like we were in a cafeteria. A nice oyster bar was below, but that's not our thing. The waitress was very nice and helped us purchase a half a sheet of corn bread to go. This corn bread is amazing and the hush puppies were tasty. Unfortunately, the rest... More

We always stop in to the Harris Crab House when we are visiting family and friends in Maryland. Harris has an excellent selection of Maryland crabs cooked to perfection, seasoned with Old Bay! I 1/2 dozen had medium crabs and 2 crab cakes. The rest of my family also enjoyed crabs, crab cakes, shrimp, and rockfish. Everything was fresh and... More

My husband and I stopped at Harris Crab House as we were returning home from a Virginia vacation. Our server was very friendly, telling us what was really good that day. Our crabs were meaty and succulent, and that was exactly what we wanted.

Love crabs and although out of season the crabs were great. Table overlooked the bay with a great view. Service was the best looking forward to visiting again

I've been to Harris several times. Service was good and descent standard fare seafood. This time several of us decided on a garden salad. I figured it should be good with the hefty $7.95 price tag. WOW was I wrong! Wet soggy cucumbers. Complete mush. Never less we sent one back. You would think they would make a completely new... More

Located on Kent Island, Maryland on the Eastern side of the Bay Bridge (under The Kent Narrows Bridge) is a delightful restaurant that has served excellent seafood et al (as well as crab feasts) to thousands of happy customers. The lower level of the restaurant seats people on stools with tables to match, and up stairs you can reserve a... More

If you want the BEST crabs all year, this is the place to go, the wait staff is wonderful and attentive, the views are breath taking. You can take an after dinner stroll along the dock come back in and indulge with one of their NUTTY BUDDIES! Perfect palet pleaser to end your fantastic evening.

Have stopped in here a number of times over the years when travelling to and from the Eastern Shore and it’s still one of my favourite crab houses in all of Maryland. They have a great atmosphere with an elevated and historically decorated dining room overlooking the bay. Staff are friendly and accommodating although a little inattentive but my only... More
