This place had great buzz from the locals, so we went. We arrived about an hour before closing. We ordered fried shrimp and were disappointed to receive shrimp that was frozen, processed. Like something you'd buy at Costco. Now, to be fair, we are Floridians so maybe this area doesn't sport fresh caught shrimp. Perhaps we should have ordered crab... More

Whether you travel to Rock Hall by sea or land, when looking for a local casual place for predictable food and beverages this local eating and drinking establishment should be on your short list . On a late April Saturday evening we (two couples) found ourselves looking for an affordable place to eat, drink and catch up on our comings... More

So many good food choices it is hard to select one. Many of the local's raved about this place. I would visit again to try many other items on menu. Love how casuel the setting is and variety of dishes.

Just stopped to grab an appetizer and drinks around 5 pm and it was very chaotic with not knowing where the hostess was. Finally asked and got seated outside by our request. Our service was good and so was the artichoke and spinach dip.

Stopped here for a couple drinks and a crab cake. Crab cake was better than we get in Florida! Nice staff and great view! Walk out and take a look at the boats! Summer provides for great entertainment the locals told us!

This place has a great atmosphere, a very laid back place to enjoy. The food was ok, but this place is definitely worth a visit

This place had a fun attitude & the staff were friendly and folksy. Unfortunately I really did NOT like my seafood quesadilla -- which contained WAY too much seasoning salt. I would have preferred to taste the crab of course . And the frozen margarita was literally the worst I had ever had--clearly from a mix. My husband's rack of... More

Hello and thank you for your review. We're very appreciative you stopped by to try us. I'm so disappointed you didn't let us know your selections weren't to your liking. We would have offered you something else or corrected the food and drink for you. It's impossible for us to know something is wrong if you don't let us know... More

Poked in here with a friend one night. It was storming and we tied up in the neighboring marina. It was packed due to the weather. I thought the waitstaff was very courteous. I had some fantastic crab-cakes here and a beer or two. The decor is fun kitschy-nautical. Would definitely swing by again if I'm ever in the area.

A great local spot with amazing cream of crab chowder. In season and off season this is the local spot to visit to eat and have the true local experience.

While in Rock Hall for the weekend, ate at Harbor Shack on Friday night and again Saturday for lunch. Why? Great setting on the water; diverse menu with fresh seafood and Tex-Mex fare; oysters served a half dozen ways, all good; friendly service; and nice selection of draft beer - and everything is reasonably priced.
