I've always wanted to try this place so today I did. The view of the inlet was really cool. I enjoyed the boats coming and going. The food was really good too. I had sea scallops that melted in my mouth on top of a mixture of fresh local sweet corn, bacon and red peppers! Wow, it was delicious! All... More

Harrison's defines what dining in Ocean City is all about. Great service, very good food and perfect setting. The view overlooking the O C inlet can't be beat. Free nearby parking is a nice bonus. There is a reason this restaurant has survived while many others in O C have come and gone. There are tons of seafood selections. My... More

The location is the best in OC. You are looking at the inlet at the end of the OC barrier Island and get to see the fishing and pleasure craft glide by as you are eating. As we sat down this time a pod of dolphins was passing by going from the ocean into the outlet and then presumably the... More

What is not to like about this restaurant? It has a great view of the inlet, great food and great service! The lobster tail I ordered was one of the best I have ever had. My waitress was so attentive, that when the kitchen supplied her with a side dish of vegetables that wasn't quite good enough for one of... More

Food was good, not knock your sock off. Wait staff was friendly and helpful. Crab cakes were dry,lobster tail was good. Oyster shot was good, very interesting concept!

Wow!! I was interested in trying this due to their no charge fish toppings and unlimited sides. What I did not expect to find was my new favorite crabcake. Two for $28 all shredded lump - no fillers - amazing. For the record, Captains Galley II previously held this title for me for about 8 yrs. Harrison's overlooks the Inlet... More

My family loves this place since I always request a seat along the window. A second floor window seat is truly best, but the first floor isn't bad. The menu here doesn't have much for the budget traveler. We always get the crab cake sandwich ($15. The cheapest item that could count as a meal is the $10 chicken sandwich).... More

My husband and I had our first date here December 1997 and we recently went back to visit on our 15th wedding anniversary. We sat at the raw bar which is awesome! The food and the service were both great. I love the fact that the oyster stew is made fresh right in front of you!!! and you certainly can't... More

We went on Saturday night near dusk. It's located at the very end of the boardwalk next to the inlet, and our second-floor window table let us look out at the ocean and the boats entering the bay. The view was great. On top of that, I got a heaping plate of tilapia, clams, and shrimp, all of which were... More

What can I say about Harrison's? Its a great location and the views at the inlet are great. They have a great source of locally caught fish and I think with some effort this place could be a "must visit" location - but it just doesn't live up to it's promise. Parking is handy and you get a couple of... More
