Consistently great!

We went for lunch--we try to come every time we are at the beach. The food is phenomenal every time, as is the service. I had the fish tacos which were excellent and my 7 year old had the nan pizza. We will continue to come back!

The food at the Shark has consistently been good every single time - the food is phenomenal - Make a reservation, though! It books up!

Me and my partner dined here and we're told the wait for a table would be around 45mins however we were pleasantly surprised and seated after around 20 mins. Our server Daniel was amazing and was very knowledgable about all the menu items and gave excellent recommendations! The food was delicious and we were taken very good care of from... More

Liked the veggie soup and cheesesteak buns appetizer... loved the rockfish bites with fries and side salad... Pineapple upside down "cake" with coconut curry ice cream was a great way to finish our meal... this is on its way to becoming our favorite OC restaurant!

This restaurant was extremely highly rated on trip advisor, so we had to give it a try during a recent visit to OC. The shark on the harbor delivered as advertised! We were certainly not disappointed. It is a very cool open atmosphere seating with a centralized bar in the middle and great views of the bay and the harbor.... More

I visit the Shark in luly 2014, it was a great experience!! every meal we ate have been prepared with fresh local food. Everything was delicious. Also, they have a excellent selection of wines and beers. The prices reflect the quality of food you have in your plate. The atmosphere is good with the views of the inlet from almost... More

wanted to have dinner here and called to make a reservation. I really wanted lobster that night but was told you have to order that ahead of time and they had none left for that night, that sounded a little strange to me, a restaurant on the water that is recommended for its seafood is out of the most popular...

Food was fantastic! Shark bites as an appetizer -- yummy!! Plus they gave us something as a "taster" from the chef -- wish I could remember what it was but it was DELICIOUS -- great mix of flavors. The bread and pimento cheese spread were very nice and flavorful as well. My husband got the Mahi-Mahi -- said it was... More
