If you like crabs and are a big eater, then this place is for you. Our group had soft crabs prepared the Eastern Shore style. We are lifelong residents of Maryland and know our crabs. Harris' is not a tourist trap. You cannot get there unless you know where you are going. Clients come from the sea and road. Wait... More

Overall good atmosphere and friendly staff. My first and not a bad layout and view. I would suggest the large crabs over the AYCE and the hush puppies were great. The crab cake sandwich was okay but not spectacular but this is a seafood clam, crab and oyster place if I was to narrow it down. Nothing bad at our... More

We visited on a Thursday night and our evening began with the rank smell of garbage surrounding the stairwell leading up to the restaurant. Ignoring that, we entered the restaurant, which was half empty but seemingly well staffed. However, after placing our order we had horrendous service, with long waits for food and beverages. In particular, we waited 30+ minutes... More

The restaurant sits at the dock and has a nice water view. It was lunch time and the weather was beautiful so we dined outside on the second level. The tables are covered with brown roll paper (I guess this is in anticipation of customers ordering all you can eat crabs) are plastic lawn chairs. You have to go through... More

My husband and I went to Harris Crab House last June, and they never fail to disappoint! Delicious crabs while looking over the water is what summertime is all about!! The service was excellent, and I love how they write their name on the brown paper covering the table so that you don't forget, nice!! I love their sweet corn... More

Harris' Crab House has some of the best seating at Kent Narrows on their rooftop deck that overlooks the narrows. Sunsets are gorgeous from this view, but it's not always offered as a seating option by the wait staff when they are slow. =/ My husband and I enjoy the blue Chesapeake Bay crabs at Harris'. The crabs are always... More

On the way to Baltimore from the Delaware beaches, we found this place from its decent Yelp reviews. We sat on the dock and ordered the crab soup, some shrimp, crabs, corn and mac n cheese. All were tasty, although a little pricy. Service was friendly, parking was right in front of the place and we were in and out... More

Not that impressed with our previous visits but gave it another chance. Service was very friendly and attentive. Fried calamari was one of the best we've had. Portions average and atmosphere classic Eastern Shore. Happy we gave it another chance.

My family went to the Harris Crab House with friends earlier today. We sat on the deck and had a great view of the boats on the bay. I ordered the mini-bucket of steamed seafood with hush puppies and coleslaw. Don't let the name fool you, the mini-bucket was actually huge. The seafood was fresh and the hush puppies were... More
