This place used to be a biker bar of some type in the past. There is a sign at the entrance that says NO COLORS. However the place is friendly and very casual atmosphere. If you go in the winter time be sure to dress warm. The dining room is a converted outdoor deck with plastic sheets instead of windows.... More

Generally a fun place, located on the water. Decent, standard seafood menu with burgers, salads, etc. Service was very slow on both visits, and not during the busiest time. More enjoyable in nicer, warmer weather when the windows are open.

Four golfers on our annual trip to OC dropped in for Happy Hour (s). Right beside the harbor snd across from commercial fishing trawlers. The beer was cold, the oysters were fresh and the shrimp were tasty. Rustic inside and that might turn off some people but if you go in knowing it's a real casual place with wood floor... More

Had a great lunch (mahi-mahi sandwich) here on a recent rainy Saturday, but the real reason to go to Harborside is the orange crush. Just what the doctor ordered. Great atmosphere, particularly the "No Biker Colors" sign at the front door.

Had a very nice dinner here. Got there around 5:00pm, Early enough so there was no crowd. The food and ambiance was great. The views were great of boats passing by on a beautiful day.

Great place to have a good meal with a very casual atmosphere. Service was great, food was great, priced fare. Not a real fancy place but quit nice, we were here in Oct so it wasn't as busy as in season but was still busy. Would go back again

We were staying in Ocean City and took a ride on a rainy weekday. We headed inland to do some shopping and decided to look at the local marinas to find a great place to have lunch. We were dressed very casually so we found this place located right on the water with live music and great reviews on line.... More
