Great Food, great atmosphere

I decided to try Harrison's after not having eaten here in years....like several decades. I went with my daughter on a pretty busy off season weekend and was able to get a table without a reservation in about 20 minutes. We ordered a dozen oysters from the raw bar....I could stop my review here... read more

We've visited this restaurant every year for the past 10 years on our first night in town. The view of the water & fresh seafood, simply but well prepared, have been consistent. Unfortunately the view was still great but the fish was dry/overcooked and the veggies bland and soggy. Even though it wasn't a busy night the server pushed us... More

Used to come to Harrison's every summer growing up and haven't been here in years. Decided to try it with my wife and two year old son. The view, as I remembered, was amazing. Very good view that cannot be beat in Ocean City. The service was attentive and well done. The food was very good; I had mahi mahi,... More

Will cerainly eat here again. We had mussels, a steam pot of various seafood and a seafood combination plat. Our 4 year old was very happy with his grilled cheese, fries... More

I have been coming to Harrison's ever since I was a kid and have always been satisfied with the food and service. The view is Amazing during sunset when all of the fishing charters are coming in from a day on the ocean. Seafood is always fresh. Worth the wait if there is one.

Visited Harrison's last July and decided to sit at the bar for some drinks and apps. Ordered steamed shrimp which were prepared in front of us. They were so fresh and flavorful. We happened to be there when a liquor rep was offering free vodka drinks. Had an oyster shooter with the chili infused vodka. It was my first oyster... More

This restaurant is right on the OC inlet overlooking Assateague Island with the wild ponies!! The dining room is on the second level and has awesome views of the Atlantic Ocean and the inlet. The real gem here is the lower level Raw Bar !! Simply the best in OC. Must do !!

We don't get to Ocean City every year, but we get there pretty frequently and every time we go it's on our list of places we have to eat. (Though they're closed now until the spring.) It's just a nice atmosphere, with a great view of the Inlet and Assateague Island, with friendly staff, and with good seafood. It may... More

Food excellent. We just happened to catch Harrisons on their last night of the season, so things were slow, but all the beer was half price for the night, so I splurged and had my one beer of the week. Our meal was excellent; fried oysters and a seafood platter. Lovely view of the south end of Ocean City from... More
