“Disappointing and they tried to over-charge us!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

We were quoted one price on the phone when booking but then they tried to charge us 30% more when we checked out. Fortunately someone had written down the price we had been quoted and we eventually got the room for that price but not without a lot of persistence. It left us with a bad impression of the place. Our room had no closet or hooks; there was no place to hang up our clothes. The bathroom had a strong deodorant smell which was unpleasant. We did not see a phone in the room. The beds were adequate but nothing special. There was a new TV but we were unable to change the station; perhaps they only get one station! No internet service in the room. I think you can do better and I suggest you look around. We do not recommend this place.

Room Tip: We did not have a water view but that was not important to us as we spent very little time in our ro...

This was our first visit to The Harrison House and I can't wait to take my sons, daughter-in-laws, sister, brother-in-law, etc.on our next visit (hopefully very soon). We were upgraded to a waterfront room and enjoyed it so much that we extended our stay. Although our room was very small, it was also very clean and updated. The television was a nice wall mounted flat screen which was connected to Direct TV. Our accommodations also included a coffee maker and mini refrigerator. The grounds are very well kept and a variey of activities are offered such as swimming, crabbing, chartered fishing or just enjoying the view from the deck. The staff is extremely friendly and the owners are very personable family oriented people.

Room Tip: The rooms in the 300's are a much larger sized waterfront room than the 200's

My family discovered Harrisons Chesapeake House several years ago and we can t wait to visit again.
Harrisons delivers an authentic Chesapeake experience .
The accomodations , the fresh sea food cooked as you like , the views and for the serious fisherman Harrisons offers p rofessional chartered fishing with seasoned guides to round out your stay at Harrisons. We have stayed at Harrisons at least eight times and we are looking forward to our 9th trip there. Once you visit you will know why my family makes it an annual tradition.

We recently stayed for 4 nights (over the 4th of July) and had one of the best times we have ever had! The room was nice and updated - very clean and comfortable beds. We were even able to bring our dog along. The outside deck has an absolutely gorgeous view and the crabs were amazing!!! I ordered the crab cake one night versus picking my own and it was delicious. Very little filler. The staff is beyond accommodating and the owners are just lovely people. We plan to go back as often as we can this summer!!

Room Tip: The rooms by the pool, in the separate building are very large and extremely quiet.

Completely unexpected for a restaurant in a fishing town to have bad local seafood, but my crabcake was heavy on the cake, light on the crab. To add insult to injury, the garnish was a wilted piece of lettuce and a dried slice of orange. I am almost certain that the vegetable side dish came out of a microwave pouch.

Stellar crabs (all you can eat) with hot and delicoius shrimp that were perfectly cooked! The waitress was awesome and gave us a lesson on how to skillfully take apart the crab. Super friendly hosts and staff.

Be sure to sit outside on the crab deck for the best view while you're working for that crab meat! :)

We ate here twice recently and had a wonderful meal both times. We did not stay here overnight. The Crab cake was very good. Not a lot of filler. We did not try the buffet, but it looked awesome, although a bit pricey (but if you are real hungry?). My husband had the fried chicken and loved it. ~Very Crunchy Crust. The outside patio is very nice with pretty views. Fun for the family during the day or nice as a romantic get away in the evening.
