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.

Am incredible buffet of local Maryland oysters, shrimp, great beef and more! Desserts included 😉 The atmosphere is wonderful and all around we had a nice experience! I have been there 4 times and it's always good.

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.

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
