The food was just good. My wife and I ate at the outside deck area. Service was very poor. Waitress on cell phone. Smiling when talking to but when back was turned completely different attitude.

We stayed at the inn and our party of 7 had dinner at Harrison's. We were very disappointed with the food. It took a very long time to arrive and, after we noticed the waitresses eating, we asked for an update - our food arrived...More

I am very sorry to hear you didn't have a good experience. Normally we have excellent crab cakes and fresh fish off the boat, so it disappoints me that you didn't get the normal quality food. I have passed your review on to the owner...More

We were excited for some seafood with a nice view but was very disappointed. Food over priced, served cold and the fries were soggy at $8.00 a pop. Service could have been a little better too. The view was great just wish the food was...More

Service is terrible. Waitress acted like she didn't want to be here. We asked for a bar menu because someone in our party who has been coming here for over 20 years, always ordered from it. Waitress had an attitude about having to get it....More

Staff and fishing great. The food not too good. Had a seafood extravaganza and it was cold. Food not as good as the past.

We stayed near here for a couple months, so ate here 4-5 times. Great view from inside and out. The servers were very nice, but reserved, so don't expect an extroverted, interactive waiter/waitress. We did have to ask for tea refills every time, even though...More

I would not recommend this. There are hints of greatness curried in total failure. We sat on the patio and smelled a fishy smell that went away when the wind shifted coming from the bay. Got warmed brie with caramelized pecans that tasted like wood,...More

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.

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.
