Dinner over $100 for two. Service was good as well as the food. The place was pretty full but you could easily hold a conversation at your table.

Possibly the best Maryland Crab Soup in Ocean City. The Oyster Stew was wonderful. The shrimp was steamed in front of of us. This place was a surprise after passing it all these years. Our bartenders, who serve drinks and prepare seafood to order, Erin...and Kara, were rockstar. Looking forward to trying the rest of the menu.More

My wife and I remembered visiting 20years ago, a relatively rare "nice" restaurant amidst the plethora of average eateries, or junk food, and especially welcome right at the end of the boardwalk. We took the family twice this week, and happy both times.. Busy, but...no wait for seating. Wait staff was excellent, particularly helpful when catering to dietary and allergy questions. Seating on 2 floors overlooking the harbor inlet, big windows, but best from the upper floor. Even saw dolphins playing in the channel. Food was good to very good: Sea food specialties included very good fish, scallops, crab, but slightly over-done lobster tail. Strongly recommend for good food, great service, great views, and a welcome civilized choice.More

We had a party of 4 for dinner. The apps were good and service was quick and polite. It went down hill from there. Sam, the waiter, then dumped a glass of wine on the table. Ok, this happens, but I should not have to...tell Sam to take the replacement glass of wine off the bill. The dinner comes. it was alright, but my daughter's choice of rockfish smelled very fishy and tasted old. we do a bunch of striper fishing in NJ, so we are extremely familiar with this fish. Sam, proceeds to tell my daughter that fish is supposed to have a fish smell and then begins to teach on fish, of which he shows his ignorance of food. My daughter is an executive chef. she sent the dish back, and then Sam said no replacement and then tried to charge for the sent back dinner. for all the good reviews, this place is a disappointment.More

Great for our family of 5 - aged 6 to 45. Able to get chicken tenders for the kiddo while getting safe gluten free food for myself, who is diagnosed with celiac disease. So nice to be on vacation and not get sick!!

Only wished to have discovered this wonderful restaurant sooner rather than our last night in OC. The service was good, he was a bit forgetful but we’re from NYC we’re forgiving. The view was spectacular, watching that sunset! The food was delicious, again wish we...came across this sooner; I would’ve tasted more from the menu. My party enjoyed the mussels, oysters for appetizers and the baked coastal dish, NY strip steak and Surf and turf. All excellent!More

We went here on a weekday night for dinner. We were seated quickly. Try and get a water view if available. My friend got jumbo fried shrimp and she said they were very good. I ordered the stuffed flounder. It was really good! They have...unlimited sides which was awesome but we didn’t order extras because we were stuffed! I recommend this place!More

This was a good restaurant, but defiantly not the best OC has to offer. It was also expensive for seafood ($99 for crab legs...) The oysters were wonderful and so was my pasta (the sauce was a light tomato that was perfectly seasoned).

We made a dinner reservation for 7 people in the morning for that evening. Our table was ready early and was on the second floor in the corner. It offered amazing views of the inlet area! The service was friendly and fast. Even with a...group of 7 the waitress (Darlene, I think) never allowed our drinks to be empty and was always seeing if we needed anything further. The food was the best we had on our week long trip. Steaks, crab legs, lobster and shrimp were all the best I had after a week of dining out. Yes, prices are a bit higher, but the food, service and views more than make up for spending the extra. I spent equal money at other places for food I didn't even finish! If you are in need of a great sit down dining experience, Harrison's is the best in town!More

Dinner was excellent, waiter was awesome. The unlimited side dishes are a nice touch. We had a table looking out at the inlet where we watched several dolphins. Dinner and a show!

Beautiful view,good food but horrible service.We waited 45 min for our appetizers,and 5 minutes after we got the mussels and seared tuna( which both were delicious), our waiter brought the main course.I sent it back ,because we just started eating the appetizers.Then the brought the...main course back and it was very good.I got lobster tail and crab cake and my boyfriend got scallops and both were delicious.The service was horrible,we got a new waiter who could not answer any questions about the food or beverages.I had to sent my wine glass back twice,because it was dirty.If it was not for a horrible waiter,we could probably enjoy our dinner more.The view is amazing,try to get a table by the window and try to go early,because place fills up quickly.More

The atmosphere and views here are excellent with many good view tables. Parking is free and easy. The food is very good and they offer plenty of items for those who are not seafood lovers. We were a party of eight and got a very...nice table immediatley with no reservation. Prices are on the high side . The weekend menu has the same items but prices are higher. The bigger issue here is inconsistent service and kitchen speed. On the first visit service and the speed in the kitchen were acceptable. On visit number two, four nights later, service was haphazard. No bread was brought to the table until finally requested and entrees took about 40 minutes to be served. One entree was not served until everyone else had completed their dinner. Our waitress seemd preoccupied and waiting us was an afterthought. The food here is good. It is convenient to get to and park. I guess it matters which night you show up and who your server is to determine how your experience will be. Cautiously recommend......More

We love coming to Harrisons for dinner. We've been fortunate enough to always get a table by the windows and the view is gorgeous. The staff are super friendly and the atmosphere is great too. I've never had a bad meal either. Always fresh, always...hot and always delicious.More

We have been here many times and are often very pleased with the experience. While some say it’s pricy, I think their prices are fair and competitive given the atmosphere and the fact that you get unlimited sides with your entree on top of bread...served to the table. But this last visit was horrible. We walked in at 4:30 for an early dinner. There was no line or crowd and our party or 3 was seated immediately. We waited and waited….and waited. 20 minutes later, we were still waiting for service as we watched waitstaff walk past and food runners stand by looking lost with nothing to do. I went to the hostess stand for help but she was on the phone. When she got off the phone, she helped people waking in the door rather than me, even though I was standing there for several minutes with no other new customers in site. Not like I was lost in the crowd. When I returned to our table, the table behind us was vacated by another family that also got tired of waiting. The hostess sat the new family at that table. Hope they had better luck. We decided to leave. There was no one at the hostess stand when we left, otherwise I would have said something. If there was a manager there, they were doing a good job of hiding as well. We come here every year but won’t be back this year. Maybe next, but I’m skeptical on their ability to provide a good experience.More
