Harrison's Chesapeake House is a nice, relaxed and authentic place on Tilghman Island with a fisherman theme that caters to locals and tourists alike. Simple menu with good seafood options reasonably priced.

The fried chicken, crab cake [broiled or fried], and delicious home made cole slaw--excellent sides of stewed tomatoes, mashed potatoes, string beans--the best country meal! The service is warm, friendly-very good. Well worth driving over 2 hours to partake of this wonderful country food, restaurant.

I checked their website first and it did not indicate they were not open Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. So, was not happy to drive from Easton all the way down to Tilghman to see the "Closed" sign. I hear their food is good, but I wouldn't know since I ended up eating a nice meal up at Chesapeake Landing near... More

We spotted Harrison's Chesapeake House while driving around Tilghman's Island. What a great place to stop and have lunch. The Maryland crab soup was very good. My husband had a fried crab cake and I had a broiled crab cake. We both loved them. The crab cakes are made with a lot of crab meat and no fillers. We sat... More

Stayed at Harrisons Sunday night and needed to get something to eat. I went to Chesapeake House to eat. Walking in I was greeted by some of the staff sitting at a table eating their dinner. It was a very slow evening and very few patrons where there. They asked me where I wanted to sit, gave me many choices... More

Four other tables and a handful of people in the bar. Saw three waitresses, so not really busy. Ordered our drinks when first sat, two milkshakes and... More

We stumbled by Harrison looking for breakfast, two if by sea was small and crowded. We had a huge breakfast and enjoyed the view by the water.
