Whether Crisfield is worth a visit depends on what you’re looking for and when you intend to visit. There are some very good seafood restaurants there, such as The Cove, http://www.coverestaurant.net . However, there isn’t much to see or do there, unless you’re in town for one of their frequent fairs or festivals. The next one is this labor day weekend, the "Hard Crab Derby and Fair." http://www.crisfieldchamber.com/crabderby.htm I attended the "J. Millard Tawes Crab and Clam Bake," http://www.crisfieldchamber.com/clambake.htm , a few years ago, and it was a lot of fun, with plenty of great seafood and things to do.
We like Harris’ in Kent Narrows, but it’s worth the extra buck at The Narrows for their crabcake (and the bartender makes a great Martini) now that the Angler is gone. Fisherman’s Inn is great for a tour of their wonderful collection of antique oyster plates – we’ve found the food to be OK, but pedestrian.
My wife and I have been to Harris’ several times and enjoy it most among the choices there. Around those parts though, we like Cantler’s the best.
Anglers is still closed down and looking very empty. The Narrows has good crabcakes and really good cream of crab soup. The Fisherman’s Inn is a good choice as well and right next door.
when heading down to myrtle beach we always make a stop at Harris crab house near the kent narrows bridge. excellent steamed crabs and the crab cake sandwich is pretty good too. We are the only ones in the parking lot with out of state plates which we always say is a good sign.
Any new updates on the Angler? Is The Narrows the only restaurant in that area? Just looking for a good crabcake. Heading east across the Bay Bridge down to Easton, Salisbury, and points south. Is is worth stopping in Crisfield? Any recommendations? I’m eventually going across the Chesapeake Bay Tunnel and will end up in Ocracoke. Open for any and all suggestions along that route. Thanks!
