This place is about 45 minutes from home. If it were any closer I would go broke because I would eat here 3 days a week. They have the best clams, oysters, shrimp and crabs. For us it's worth the ride. They usually have different sizes of crabs and I think they get them all year from Texas, Louisiana, Etc.... More

Casual laid back atmosphere. Long tables and a few chairs at the bar. Friendly staff and patrons. Great oyster stew big chunks of oysters. I ordered two Imperial crab cakes that also came with two sides. 10 small size hush puppies. The crab cakes and hush puppies took up the whole plate. The Cole slaw was in a separate large... More

We often drive between our Delaware home and DC, and normally lunch at one of their crosstown competitors. We decided to shake it up. It's been several years since we've been to Harris, and not a lot has changed. We opted for the upstairs with the enhanced view of the Kent Narrows. And a great day for viewing, it was.... More

When we choose the Annapolis Bridge route we make a point of stopping at Harris Crab House. Increasingly, we are following this route BECAUSE of Harris Crab House, and so far we have not been disappointed. We always sit on the main inside level so cannot comment on other locations. On the most recent visit, we began with their renowned... More

If one wants a no frills, simple bench style seating, tables covered with brown paper and fast service; this is the place to go. The only reason you would go here would be to eat fresh steamed crabs and seafood. There is really no bar and nothing much happening. The place always seemed busy and it is the most visible... More

I can't compare Harris' to any of the other crab houses in the area because this is the only one I've been to...multiple times! It's a wonderful casual place to chow down on some legs, share a pitcher of brew, and relax with good friends. I've only visited while on vacation, but it's a must for me every time I'm... More

On our way to the Eastern Shore for the day, my family and I stopped by the visitor's center for ideas on what to do. We met two employees, and one of them could not stop raving about this place. On our way back home, we stopped for another oyster fix, remembering the great review that person had shared with... More

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
