Nice place. Great fun atmosphere. Safe choice. Some of what we got was great, some just okay. But we would go again.

My fiancé and I went her for dinner on a Saturday night, call early for reservations. The food and the service were great. I had the rockfish and my fiancé had the crab cakes. It was a bit expensive but you can show up in whatever clothing you want and have a nice laid back evening. Will be back again... More

Wife and I had lunch here today and it was very nice. I had the blackened grouper sandwich and a half pound of the best spiced shrimp I've ever eaten plus their home made chips! Yummy!! Wife had grilled yellow tuna salad sandwich. She enjoyed it also. Just a very nice experience and great food. Couldn't ask for better.

I have dined here on many occasions and the menu is interesting with a creative use of seasonally fresh ingredients. The service is very good and it is a nice setting on the fishing harbor. Be sure to make a reservation as it can get very busy.

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
