First time here and we'll probably return. The restaurant sits just under the route 50 bridge as you enter/leave Ocean City. We got here at 11:15ish just before lunch, but the kitchen started to serve lunch at 11:45 - just a little earlier than usual....More

Always stop for the fried flounder and home fries breakfast and it was perfect as usual! Stopped for happy hour this year and had the grouper fingers which were awesome. Service was great both visits! Always enjoy the view at The Angler. OC Tradition 😎
