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

We spent the weekend in OC, MD and decided to end our stay Sunday evening with dinner at the Harbor Watch. What a great idea. It was not busy at all and the service was great. Our waitress was very attentive from the start. They sat us at a great table by a window and offered to open the shades... More

The last evening of our stay, we opted to go to the popular Harrison’s Harbor Watch restaurant. Upon arriving, we waited about fifteen minutes for the hostess. After we were seated, we waited another fifteen minutes for the wait staff. She took our drink order; and again, we waited several minutes before she returned with the drinks. After taking our...

We arrived here on a Sunday evening at about 7:30 pm. We had asked the hostess to seat us near a window if a table was available. She told us there were no tables available by the windows, but that there were some by the wall and the view was just as nice. We get seated next to SIX window... More

I am running out of titles. We like to eat here every 2-3 visits, enjoying a solid dinner, great views, and professional service. We dined post-Labor Day week, on 9/4. We were staying at a Harrison Quality Inn, and there were the customary free shrimp cocktail coupons available in the room. The boardwalk was busy that evening, and they were... More

When my wife and I visit Ocean City, MD, we often eat at Harrison's Harbor Watch Restaurant. The food and service are always excellent. We started off with the Cream of Crab soup and then tried some Tapas and Coconut Shrimp. My taste buds are still tantalized from our meal. This is a great place to eat if you want... More

Harrison Harbor Watch used to be one of our favorite restaurants in OC, MD. However, we have been there twice recently and our experience was poor at best. Prices are high and portions are small. The snow crab legs were overcooked. The shrimp imperial were appetizer size at full price - four small shrimp with a little imperial. The steamed... More
