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.

Great location with dining on the outside deck overlooking Rock Hall Harbor and the Chesapeake Bay. Dog friendly on the deck which is great during the Hot Summer Months. Bring Fido along if he's friendly and well behaved because more than likely he will not be the only canine on the deck. They will have a water bowl ready for... More

This restaurant was packed. We had a good 20 minute wait around 7pm when we arrived. It was a gorgeous evening and we wanted to sit outside so we were willing to wait. The food was good but the restaurant was very very loud and became even louder when the band started to play around 8pm. My husband and I... More

This is a fun and funky place to eat on the Chesapeake Bay in Rock Hall, MD. Interesting and varied menu - great outdoor eating in the summertime - beautiful sunsets. Very friendly place.

If you enjoy sandwiches, fries & beer in an outside setting, then Harbor Shack is the perfect place. Be as casual as you wish and watch a few sports on several TV's. There's an enclosed area, if a little quiet is needed. Staff are really pleasant/enjoyable people!
