Have been three times now and probably the last. The overall atmosphere is good and is right on the water -- very nice sunsets. Also, large crowds and long tables. It's a low key crab house. Crabs are good. Most of the other food was overcooked, cold or greasy. Very pricey overall for all of their stuff. Better value can... More

Stopped here on our way back from Rehoboth Beach, DE to the DC Metro area. First thing you'll note is the welcoming casual atmosphere and a dining room filled with tables covered in brown paper… an obvious sign that this is a "pick your own crabs" kinda place. Although we didn't have the crabs on this visit, the varied menu... More

If you are from Maryland and have never tried Harris Crab House, well you have missed a part of your heritage and some really great seafood! It is Kent Narrows dining history, they have the marks of staying there even after several great floods that came up to their markers on the way up the stairs to the main door.... More

We were driving around to find a new place and ended up driving across the Bay Bridge. A quick look for restaurants led us to FIsherman's, which was closed. We ended up here. The view was great and the staff friendly. We ordered crabs and sides. The crabs were really heavy and had good flavor. The corn was very sweet.... More

Love eating here when in town. Good service, big portions, brown paper table covers seafood restaurant. Relaxed atmosphere. Love the fried oysters, steamed clams, and heavy crabs.

We stopped here on the way from St. Micheal's, MD on the way to Gettysburg, Pa for lunch before we crossed the bay bridge. What a fun experience! The waitress was old school fun and helpful, very friendly and attentive. The food was outstandingly good and a huge portion- at a great price for lunch. The tables were covered with... More

Great atmosphere, good crabs. Friendly staff and patron. Steamed crabs were fresh and tasty, but oysters were... not too fresh, but I won't take any points away since this is a crab house, not oyster house.
