In fact, just the opposite. The Shark is to be enjoyed. We had dinner here after driving all day to our B&B. Had cocktails to start which were wonderful and priced right. I had the Rock fish special and she had a Crab Cake creole style with crawfish and andouile sausage. Although my fish was a tad over done, it... More

This is a real gem of a place! The husband and wife (chef and manager) is a great combination. Their success is in the talent and hard work they put into it. The menu changes regularly. Really great recipes for the catch that comes off the boats there in the harbor. They also use a lot of local fresh produce... More

We were in Ocean City off season for a trade show. Horrid weather -- cold and snowy in March. Our visits to this restaurant made it worthwhile. The setting on the harbor is lovely, the decor pleasant and modern. Service was excellent. We shared three dishes: Steamed Chincoteague littleneck clams and steamed jumbo shrimp appetizers, and the bayou crab cake... More

We showed up on a Sunday without reservations and were able to get a seat at the bar. This restaurant has limited seating and I would recommend to have reservations for lunch or dinner. We had to wait a few minutes to be seated. The staff were very courteous and the location on the water was interesting. You get the... More

My husband and I recently dined at this restaurant after reading the trip advisor reviews. We really didn't expect it to be as good as the reviews but it absolutely on spot. We are from a coastal town so we are used to fresh seafood but this was some of the best I've ever tasted. The Rockfish was outstanding and... More

Our group of 7 enjoyed an early evening dinner. Everyone was very pleased with their meal. We were impressed with The Shark's commitment to quality, freshness and use of local ingredients. My mixed green salad was the best I ever had. Amazing combinations of glistening greens, crisp apple slivers, candied pecans and dried fruits. It was lightly doused with a... More

Always a favorite of ours. Friendly/ courteous staff, along with good fresh dishes. I have ordered most every item on the menu at one time or another. I can only say good things about them all. My wife and I have never been disapointed. That is rare in this tourist town of ours. Brunch is a real nice treat on... More

Menu changes daily - we enjoyed small plates - $5.99 & the bloody Betty was awesome. One of our favorite places - now. Heard the brunch was great - planning an experience soon.
