Like other long term restaurants in the resort town of Ocean City this one has slipped......they are riding a reputation that doesn't live up to the modern world. My friend had 3

I had been several years ago, but not for diner, an my girlfiend hadn't eatin there ever. I wanted to take her to a nice standard seafood restaurant, possibly upscale for her birthday. We have been to several very good seafood places in Ocean City, but after comparing menu's to five other restaurants, Harborside had more seafood selections and one... More

I honestly can't review the food ... I have never been "blown away" by anything here except .. The Orange Crush. It is (hands down) worth the drive. You can sit on the deck, watch the boats come & go and enjoy this delicious beverage. It is always a MUST when we are in O.C. The staff is friendly and... More

Fun for lunch and even a night out. Stay off the island and have some good fun with the adults. Scallops app and the Orange crush or grapefruit crush is a must have. It will be your new drink of the summer. Also try the jerk chicken app. Live music also with water view seating on the deck. Will return... More

My fish and chips were ok, fish was a tad over cooked. Orange crush delicious, and $2 off at happy hour. So noisy inside you need to yell to those across the table...atmosphere a bit lack luster.

Harborside makes the best Jerk Chicken, bar none. They have gotten pricey, so beware. Nice people and on a nice day, outside is nice to go out and eat. Also, Harborside has more parking than years past which was a major issue in the past. Bring your money but unlike other places, worth to go if you want to eat... More

In search of a good 'orange crush' and fresh seafood (not fried) we went to Harborside. Mostly fried fish and chicken. Husband had scallops from the menu and said the sauce overwhelmed the fish. The chef made me grilled scallops (no breading) not on menu. The sides are few. I had applesauce (?) and sweet potato fries that were limp... More

We were visiting in the area, our son lives there and we also attended the Ward Wildfowl Woodcarving Show. He took us to this restaurant and what a nice time we had! The service was great, the appetizer was perfect and the seafood just the way we like it! Sometimes other restaurants don't know how to cook seafood but Harborside... More
