Best dinner on the Boardwalk

I have lived in Ocean City since '91, and can honestly say this is the best restaurant on the boardwalk. The seafood is fresh, make sure to check the nightly specials. The prices are reasonable and there is a decent menu for kids. The wait staff is upbeat and eager to help. The restaurant is on... read more

Best fried whole oysters and whole belly clams and flounder in Ocean City. Super fresh shrimp cocktail and crabmeat cocktail, oysters on the halfshell.

I've been eating breakfast there regularly each summer for 30+ years. My family use to sit under, yes under the Boardwalk on beach days. It's home. The food and donuts are delicious. The atmosphere is great. Enjoy.

Oves has a great deal on stuffed lobster with two sides for $28. The service is good and view of the ocean is wonderful.

This restaurant has a fantastic view and it's on the boardwalk. Further down from the chaos so it's incredibly relaxing. The very casual family friendly environment is great for families or big groups. And the menu has something for everyone. We had the steamers which were so delicious. My husband had one of the specials, blackened tuna. And they cooked... More

We went here three times: once for breakfast, and twice for lunch. The location is great if you are down by the 5th-2nd street beach, as there's nothing else on the boardwalk around there. The breakfast was 4 stars; good food, reasonably priced and the donuts were AMAZING! Service was fast and mostly good. Our lunch was "to-go" so we... More

I booked the upstairs room at Oves for a private party last night. Have eaten breakfast there for years but had never done dinner. For those that have never visited Oves, it is right on the boardwalk and beach in Ocean City. From the upstairs room you have an unobstructed view of the ocean. Generally you have a nice breeze...

Yummy flounder but they were out of most salad dressings and definitely understaffed. I would come back but early or mid-season. The server ran around and worked super hard but for that price we were waiting for everything even ketchup.

For the last 7 years, we have been renting a house in Ocean City during the Summer. We always eat breakfast at Oves a few times during our stay. We have eaten lunch there once or twice. Their food is always delicious. The restaurant is clean and there is a wonderful view from their second floor dining room. No one... More
