Food is good, nothing special or unique. Can be sweltering in the summer. The orange crushes help cool you down.

Soft shell crab was excellent. Seafood is very fresh. Wait staff was very pleasant. We were there for an early lunch and really enjoyed the setting and watching the boats along the dock.

I have been to the Harborside numerous times. It's my favorite place there. They have the freshest seafood. Great Service and the Orange Crush Cake is so delicious and light after a wonderful meal. Yes, it is a bar/grill but it's fine for families. Took my grandson 4 yrs old and he had the shrimp. I never leave Ocean City... More

My group seven of us came for lunch this past Saturday, Oct 15th, way under staffed. I know it was "considered"off season. But there was a marathon that day and a corvette event with over 800 participants. We asked to be seated, event offered to split the group up so we could return to the event in a timely manner....

My wife and I were there at night. There wasn't any room in the parking lot so we had to park a block away where the area was dark. The server had a little bit of an attitude and would disappear for long periods at a time. My wife ordered a crab dip that was a chessey salty mess (very... More

One of our favorite places in OC. Usually have the original Orange Crush, but tried the Rum Lovers version today. Awesome! I've traveled all over the US and Harborside's crushes are the best! Love sitting down on the water and having drinks with family and friends. We always make time to get here!

I had the fish tacos, very good. My boyfriend had the crab cake sandwich and said it was very good also. We ordered a round of orange crushes, cause you have to here. We never saw our server again until we asked for the check. She never checked back to see if we needed drink refills or needed anything else.... More

Atmosphere is great, casual fun, and the food is excellent. Don't miss the original Orange Crush, the great valued happy hour shrimp, wings, mussels. Salads are fresh, cold, large. Broiled flounder is probably the best ever had, nothing like it anywhere. Soft crab club sandwich is a must. Their Maryland crab soup is spicy, loaded, delicious. You'll want to go... More
