The best crab legs we've had in years. Eclectic place that's been around for generations. Shrimp appetizer was solid as well. House made salad dressing was fantastic.

This is what folks call a "Local Dive", and people love this place! It's along the railroad downtown in Elkin...not fancy or anything luke that, but very good food and service!

I have eaten crab legs everywhere as they are one of my favorites. Harry's crab legs are better than any that I have ever eaten at the coast or anywhere else. All of their food is awesome but the crab legs are my favorite!
