$1M Crab House, Lounge, and Tiki Bar Opens in Harford County

A million-dollar, Caribbean-themed seafood restaurant, lounge, and tiki bar has opened in Harford County.

Owner Anthony Ashe hopes Fallston’s Mallet Restaurant and Crabhouse will stand out from the county’s chain restaurants.

He also hopes the location, at the busy intersection of Route 1 and Maryland Route 152, would attract plenty of drive-by traffic. Though the economy has not been kind to some restaurants, Ashe is hoping the county’s new residents from the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) will bring in business.

The 13,000-square-foot restaurant, which opened last month, features a martini lounge serving sushi, a raw oyster bar, steamed crabs, and a patio decked out with palm trees. It seats 650.

“We have multiple environments in one destination,” Ashe says.

Prior to opening the restaurant, Ashe was an executive for Canadian airline technology firm GuestLogix Inc. He also had a career as an investment banker.
