Cold Beers and Iced Teas, Fresh Corn on the cob, Cole Slaw, Hush puppies, fresh Oysters on the half shell and Maryland Crab an amazing meal. The four of us... More

Each year we stop by Harris to have the All You Can Eat Crabs and have yet to be disappointed. The price is reasonable, the service is great, location right on the water and can accommodate a larger group (which we had 25). If you don’t want the all you can eat crabs they have a large selection from the... More

My husband and I had a wonderful time at this restaurant. We hit some pretty terrible traffic on 50-WB following an overturned milk truck, so we decided to get off the road ASAP and have a nice leisurely dinner while we waited for the traffic to clear. We each had two drinks (which were small but appropriately priced!) and split... More

If you are going to be in the area for a few days, put this restaurant on your list of places to eat. It is a very casual atmosphere overlooking a marina. As suggested by the name of the restaurant, people go here for crab pickin'. I do not pick crabs - I get my crab in crab cakes, bisques,... More

We had an AWFUL experience here. We arrived around 7:00 pm and the hostess asked if we wanted to sit inside or outside. We said outside! Worst mistake ever. I'm not sure what was going on all I know if that we were ignored totally! The waitresses we noticed two to be exact moving back and forth taking orders and... More

I would like to ask if we could send you a gift card in the hope that you would consider returning for a better experience. Second,... More

My wife ordered a half pound of shrimp with corn and coleslaw with corn bread. All good. I ordered a crabcake sandwich an subbed onion rings for french fries. And the house ale. It was acceptable but nothing special. The crab cake which was delicious was small compared to others I've had. The onion rings were not hot so I... More

My souse and I stopped for lunch on our way to Annapolis - just happened upon it, and we're glad we did. The Maryland crab soup was delicious, as were the crab cakes, although a bit on the small side. It was a beautiful day and the umbrellas were well positioned. We had a nice view of the water on...

Fondue, crab, perfect side veggies, hush puppies, oysters....great, now my mouth is watering. This was my uncles favorite place to eat...so, we came often. Its the best value, best ambience, and best seafood nearby. I actually skipped a family brunch to make sure I came here on my last visit. And, was not disappointed. The blue crab seem to be... More

Stopped for dinner and view of the Narrows at sunset. The servers seemed attentive, but the service was quite slow and then my wife's food was cold. In response, the 99 cent up charge for onion rings was deducted from our bill.

Steamed crabs were great. Fun atmosphere and good coleslaw. Prepare to get messy though if you pick your own.
