Harris Crab House at Kent Narrows is pretty good. If you're looking for an "archetype" of small town America, Centreville, MD has it. Old courthouse on town square. Too bad there aren't a whole lot of attractions in town. The coffee shop on the town square used to be a great place to grab a cup and chat with the locals. Haven't been since it changed owners. Doc's in town is also a great local restaurant/bar.

I'm actually back from the Eastern Shore but this thread is still up here so I'll reflect on my experiences a bit. I honestly, seriously am considering relocating there after graduation. I've never felt I fit in anywhere as well I did in Cambridge and Salisbury. I got housing in Cambridge and commuted to Salisbury every day for a week. Much better than spending the same amount of time, 45 min, sitting in bumper to bumper traffic or transferring from one subway train to another...the scenery was amazing.

I did actually stop at Harris's after a friend suggested it and it was great, but better crabcakes can be found at the Portside Restaurant in Cambridge. Cambridge was one of those towns where Wal-Mart seems to be the center of activity but there's nothing wrong with that. Downtown Cambridge has that perfect, historic feel and everyone has been welcoming. Its refreshing seeing places where you're not judged based solely on how much wealth and power you have, as is the case in Montgomery County and especially Potomac and Bethesda. I went to high school in Potomac with very arrogant, snotty, shallow, and materialistic people. The Eastern Shore really was a completely different way of life, the kind of life I would like to live and raise my family in someday. Also I'm surprised that not a single person asked me about my ethnic background on the Eastern Shore except one guy whose wife is Asian. On the Western Shore, especially around DC, people are overly "ethnic" and always ask me what I am.
