What a neat location! It is fun to observe the activities in the harbor through the large windows overlooking the inlet. The food is very good. Portions are nice and the prices are fair. The drinks are just average compared to other restaurants in the area. Happy Hour offerings are excellent. The bar has limited seating, which presents a problem... More

The Shark deserves the high ratings it gets. I've visited several times, most recently in Oct 2014, and the food is consistently *delicious.* Most recently, several of us visited during Ocean City's Restaurant Week (good deal). The location is great, right on the water in West Ocean City. The restaurant walls are glass windows, providing for a wonderful view of... More

After coming to the area on occasions this summer I finally decided to give it a try on a Sunday morning. I sat at the bar and order a evolution pumpkin ale and soon I scroll down the menu and the Huevos Rancheros with local butcher chorizo, organic local farm eggs, salsa verte, black bean disconstructed salad, fresh corn tortillas...

We always love this place. They always serve the fresh catches of the day from the West OC harbor. Especially a great deal during Restaurant Week 10/12-26), a 3 course dinner for $30. We went the first week on a Tue. We ordered the hot/sour seafood soup & special kale salad, both were very good. The entrees were dynamite tuna... More

My husband and I enjoyed a delicious lunch here. It is a farm to table restaurant and everything on the menu lists where it came from. My only complaint is that the drinks at the bar are not the best. They measure out one shot (no overflow here!) and then add ice to make it seem like a good drink.... More

This is the second time at the Shark on the Harbor. It will not be the last. Interesting food with a twist. Our server was Mandy and she was great. She remembered us from our last visit and offered suggestions on local beer and food selections. Friendly casual atmosphere that will have us return on our next visit to Ocean... More

Neat place to eat, they serve a lot of natural options and locally sourced foods. I think it is better then 95% of the restaurants in the "tourist" zone of OC. It is fairly expensive but again the food is largely all-natural and the portions are fair. Service was very good.

Thought this was a regular restaurant,but it is actually a sports bar with a smallish dining area.Didn't find an elevator so if you have a handicapped person in your party there are steps and a very long ramp to navigate.Despite the noise(and it is very noisy)we managed to enjoy the place.Food is billed as "organic"and supposed to be fresh,Maryland fare.Really...

Visited The Shark twice for lunch in early October, 2014 and again found it welcoming, noisy, fun, and with excellent food and service. Fish entree was excellent and fresh. Salad was a little different and again superb. Service by Lori and Natalie was very friendly and attentive. We highly recommend a visit and we'll go back. Don't know about the... More
