We absolutely love this place! We found it a few years ago and have been going back ever since. Their seafood dishes are loaded with seafood and have amazing flavor. I haven't had a subpar meal yet! I also have to add that their Orange Crush drinks rock! They are the original creators of the drink that has taken over... More

As an OC local... I love this place. I had family visit from Baltimore who typically enjoy Outback Steakhouse. At first glance they were displeased with only 4 bacon wrapped shrimp for $10! I pleaded, "don't say anything until you try them..." Needless to say, that was Saturday evening & when asked where we should have dinner on Sunday night,... More

This is a cool locals bar with great Orange Crushes (apparently they invented them) however, the food leaves a little to be desired. I had the shrimp tacos. They were OK. My biggest gripe is that the taco shells (soft) were a bit stale. I would have figured if you had tacos on the menu, at the very least you... More

I loved the crush drinks. Food was okay. They had live music and a fun bar scene. Recommend going for drinks.

My sister in law and I stopped here after a trip to Assateague National Seashore. She had the fish and chips while I had a cheeseburger and potato skins. The potato skins were the best I've ever had! Really enjoyed the atmosphere and in the afternoon it wasn't too loud. Would definitely visit again!

Harborside Bar and Grill is a great local's-type restaurant in West Ocean City. Situated on one of the canals facing route 50, most seating is in an open air, roofed deck overlooking the water with an outside bar and also outdoor tables with umbrellas. Accommodations are typical of a beachgoer-friendly business, with plastic chairs and a very casual/party atmosphere. Famous... More

The first time I had a broiled Founder Sandwich at Harborside, I could not believe the piece of flounder they put on a sandwich. It was huge, tender, fresh and cooked perfectly. I told my wife, if I had ordered a flounder dinner and got the piece of fish I got on this sandwich, I would have been thrilled. Enjoy... More

This place is fine but not worth the 4 star rating, it has okay service not great views and other than crabs the food is forgettable. It's not the best

We heard about Harborside from a local friend. She said we MUST try the orange crush. So we stopped by for an early dinner on a week night after playing some golf. Incidentally, we were discussing where to get dinner in the course parking lot and a nearby golfer said we should go to Harborside and try the grilled ahi... More
