Harris Crab House opened its doors in 1981, situated on the Kent Narrows Waterway, four miles east of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.
For five generations, the Harris family has been a fixture in the seafood business on the Shore. Along with the years, comes a wealth of history to be told about the Chesapeake Bay region. Our restaurant is nestled in an area where local watermen are still a prevalent feature, bringing in their “catch,” docking their boats, and spinning their tales.
Through it all, Harris Crab House has remained a family business. Generations of family members have worked and are still managing or working at the restaurant.
We are proud to employ and serve what we we feel is the very best of Eastern Shore traditions and history. We buy our seafood from approximately 350 local watermen and employ approximately 140 people from our community.
