After reading the trip advisor reviews and looking at this restaurants web page I was prepared for a fine dining experience. It was a disappointment to find a big noisy bar in the center of the room and 6 televisions. The menu reads well with innovative pairings and lots of local products.

I'd asked for a table by the window, with a harbor view, and said it was for our 40th anniversary with our friends. We not only got the table, we received complimentary wine! The food is fresh, driven by the farm to table concept, and is extremely innovative. We loved it, and the waitstaff is perfect: sensitive to needs, but... More

My husband and I just enjoyed a "date" night at The Shark. Excellent food. The menu is constantly changing based on what is available fresh locally. The food is consistently good and the staff is top notch. Would definitely recommend and we will be back soon!

Awesome restaurant- try the berry salad and Poke eyed Tuna- Dessert are spectacular as well. We stayed a couple of nights with my family at Ocean City and we thought this is were we had our best dinner by far. Nice ambiance and good service.

May seem a little expensive but I've... More

Food was very good. Menu was at first a little difficult to decipher as each of the many ingredients were listed. Could there really be this many items in one dish? While we enjoyed our meal, you didn't really taste the individual veggies.
