Love the daily changing menu

A good culinary experience, the custom cocktails are a little pricey for what you get, but the culinary sophistication is great. If you go for brunch, the cheddar biscuit and pulled pork, WAS AMAZING! a good variety, decent wine list.

Fresh Exquisite seafood! Exceptional service. Didn't appreciate the bar situated in the middle of the restaurant but the under the sea movie on the large screen and the large windows overlooking the harbor diverted our attention from that. The staff handled our large family that included five little children, very well. The manager is present, sociable and gifted us with... More

Their menus change often. I have been here several times and usually get their fish specials. I have not been disappointed. They always have a new twist to their dinners and the service is excellent.

Decided to try this restaurant mainly because it was part of restaurant week in Ocean City, MD, which means you can try the food at a reasonable price. I would have checked that is was one of the best meals I ever had, but it was one part of the meal that was the best, which was the rockfish. I... More

We enjoyed a variety of "happy hour" bar dishes, and were very impressed with the quality of our selections. We especially enjoyed the shrimp dumplings- best we've ever had. Prices were reasonable, and there was an excellent selection of local craft beers. Top it off with a great view of the local shoreline......it was a great time, and we were... More

Just returned from a celebration dinner at The Shark or at least it was supposed to be a celebration. Had a coupon for wine and did not read the fine print - the owner made us feel like second rate clients since we were not following the rules to use the coupon! Now tell me, how much does a bottle...

This is a great place to go with friends, for business, with a significant other or as a family. The food is awesome and is you are REALLY hungry ask them to prepare the Voodoo for you. The commercial harbor and inlet are a sight to behold. Parking is at a premium on weekends and you DO want to cab... More

Decided to eat here based on a local's recommendation and the reviews. My husband had blackened fish sandwich which he said was very good. I had the fried fish (rockfish) & fries. The batter was greasy and hard. It appears that it had been fried in too hot of oil. It was disappointing as I had better food at other... More

We went to this restaurant based on a suggestion from a bartender on the boardwalk. The restaurant is on the other side of the bridge from OC but is right on a harbor and we were able to eat as we watched the sunset through the many windows. This is more of a date scene restaurant based on the food,... More
