“Always great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013 via mobile

I've been going to The Shark ever since it opened on 46th St. years ago. Never had a bad meal or experience. This is one of the best restaurants in OC.

“Best Food in Ocean City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

The view is great, the service is friendly and good but the best thing is the food. I have never gotten a bad meal EVER at the Shark. The prices are good, I had the fried green tomatoes w/ crab meat, my friends had the lobster which was on special. Everyone raved about how good everything was, mine was delectable and beautiful to behold! They even gave us a little appetizer to taste, just one bite for each, just to try. I love the Shark!

“A really special meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

We've all had memorable meals. Sometimes it's the setting, sometimes the company, sometimes the food. Our meal at The Shark was great for all those reasons but especially for the fresh, inventive way the dishes were presented. We had the big eye tuna with fig chimichurri and scallops with apricot and jalapeño sauce. We'd never thought of putting those things together but it was wonderful!

The staff was friendly and the service was very good. Our server was stretched a bit, but other staff pitched in and made sure we were well taken care of.

Oh yeah -- the ultimate chocolate brownie dessert was to die for!

“Amazing!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

This was our first trip to Shark, and we now plan to be back every year when we are in OC! Everything here is wonderful, from the decor to the attentive staff and the fresh delicious food. My husband had the short ribs and I had the filet (small plate). We also had salads and the pork belly steamed bun appetizer. Everything was fresh and attractive and outstanding.

“Memorable Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

This was the third time we went to Shark and it did not disappoint us. We were fortunate enough to go on a night when the special was whole 1.5# lobsters for $20 each. You can't go wrong with a special like that. Everything was great, as we have become used to at Shark. It is one of the very best restaurants in OC and we will definitely be back again next year.
