My wife and I came to Ocean City for a relaxing weekend. Based on Trip Advisor reviews, we decided to go to this restaurant. Wow, we are glad we did so. From the outstanding service, to the well-made cocktails, and the outstanding food, our evening was very special. The attention to detail and the fact that most ingredients were locally... More

The food and service was OUT OF THIS WORLD. Nancy our service was very warm and very well informed of the dishes. The food ingredients are grown locally and used in the dishes. Everything is fresh. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE!!!!

Sat at the bar and the bartender was great. 2 friends joined our group of 4 and after an hour, we borrowed a chair from an empty table so that one of our lady friends could sit down. After about 20 minutes, the hostess rudely told us that the chair... More

If you're looking for some great seafood and other well crafted dishes, this is your place!. The setting overlooking the fishing harbor is a perfect fit for the atmosphere of the place. The food is really pretty good and a decent wine selection as well. The staff is friendly and the place is clean and well lit. Go for lunch... More

We went here on a weekend get away because it had high rankings on tripadvisor. They change their menu daily so it is fresh. I enjoyed my meal but my husband said it was ok and to pricey for his taste. The crab and shrimp dip was fabulous! We both liked that, but my husband didn't like his smoked oyster... More

Stopped in for a quick lunch. Great farm/ocean to table experience. Went with the blackened tile fish sandwich which was grilled to perfection. Never a bad meal at the Shark. Great HH!

Our party of 8 went to The Shark for a late dinner New Year's Day and had a wonderful meal. The waitstaff is friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. The menu changes daily due to the fact they source locally and was able to please everyone in our party, from vegetarian to carnivore. The lobster special was almost unbelievable. All the food...
