We stayed at the Inn and ate downstairs our first night. Overall this place has a ton of potential as a destination location, but one quickly learns that Tilghman Island seems to cater to the locals and charter boats--nothing like St. Michaels a little further...More

We were celebrating our anniversary, and we were looking for someplace quaint and quiet to go. This place definitely fit the bill. Our room had an awesome view which made the cost worth it. The bed was comfortable, but some curtains on the windows would...More

Large portion steamed blue crab and carrot cake were good. Craft beer selection, good service. They showed us how to eat the crab which was helpful and needed! Crab ball apps also good

Nice location, but many menu items were not available. Service was a bit on the slow side, but servers were pleasant.More

This location is not coming up on Trip Advisor so using the original location. Considering that this was a seafood restaurant was disappointed in the amount of seafood entrees. Will start with the good things, my family went there for pre-Mother's Day dinner. The restaurant...More

Went to Harrison's for dinner on Mother's Day. We started with the hot crab dip which is oddly served (I'm a Marylander and I eat it all the time when out to dinner). It is served in a bread bowl (fine) but without anything to...More

Food was so so. Had to send back salads and they didn't have more salad in kitchen to replace it. Other food served was okay. Service was good but a little disappointed in the overall experience. Might try again?

We were at Tilghman off season, so Harrison's was the only large restaurant open, though it was short staffed. Still the same traditional family style seafood dinners. Very good food.

Do you still have the oyster buffet with the raw, steamed, fried oysters. It also had ham, fried chicken and fixings. Would love to come back again. I think it was a Friday night. We live in Ocean City so need to plan it. Thanks, Darlene Charvat

I am sorry I can not help. It is unusual for them to be closed. Before driving down, call or email even though it is a beautiful drive down.
do you offer all you can eat crabs? what size and cost?

Wonderful... locals favorite. Know they have a special "oyster" night, but give them a call to find out what the latest prices and sizes are for crabs. Generally, at the end of the summer season, the crabs are larger.
