Fisherman's Crab Deck or Harris Crab House for Maryland Crabs???

Hi CHers:

My husband & I are headed to Maryland's eastern shore the end of September for three nights of R&R w/o the kids. We're coming from Northeast Ohio. One thing on the agenda is sampling Maryland's steamed blue crabs which will be a first for us. I am hoping it will still be crab season from what I've read on the CH boards - the peak was the last weekend of August.

Since we'll be heading east on Rt 50 crossing the Bay Bridge about lunch time on a Sunday, I'm thinking of either Fisherman's Crab Deck or Harris Crab House for lunch in the Kent Narrows area. Which would you recommend for a first timer??? I understand either the Xtra Large or Jumbo crabs are recommended for first timers. Not interested in any fried foods of any kind. Just want to try steamed Maryland blue crabs.

Thanks for all your help!
