Do not go there until the COVID is over! I ate there Sunday afternoon and there was no social distancing, the bar area was jammed with no masks, no hand sanitizer anywhere and and didn’t seem to be if any concern.

Great service. Wonderful seafood dishes and great to be in open air in early November. Shrimp with crab imperial (wow) Blackened scallops with crab imperial, hard to beat.

We passed by this restaurant going to Martins fish and co and decided to try it as there are alot of cars parked so we thought this must be good and indeed it didn’t disappoint us. We ordered mussels and buffalo wings and oh myy...twas sooo good! The drinks though are pricey so wouldn’t order one nxt time but will be back for the great food,service,and view.More

Very friendly bartenders and wait staff! Steamed shrimp is yummy...just the right amount of seasoning! So good that we went back several times and looking forward to our next visit (hoping sooner than later).

My family ordered takeout. My son placed a phone order and was told that the food would be ready in "15 minutes". Not wanting to wait due to coronavirus, we arrived after 25 minutes. We went to the bar to pay and pick up our...food. After signing the credit card bill, the bartender said it would be a "few minutes". We waited at the bar where no one was wearing a mask and the bartender was serving several customers. After another 15 minutes, the bartender who never checked to see if our food was ready said it would be a "few minutes". After over 55 minutes, I asked the bartender, how much longer it would be? I was told again that it would be a few more minutes. We finally got our food after 65 minutes since we placed the order. When we got home, the food was not warm. It seems that the food may have been ready, but the bartender did not bother to see if it was ready. My wife ordered a baked potato, but there was no butter or sour cream. I ordered crab cakes, but there was no tartar sauce for the crab cake. If you plan on ordering takeout, beware that this restaurant does not seem to be set up for takeout as there is no curbside pickup, and no one cares to let you know when your food will be ready. Perhaps if you eat there, you will get better service.More

Very disappointed in what we found when we got there this year. Prices pretty much doubled. Crush $8 draft $4 at 4 pm. 2 crab cakes $30. They said no happy hour they didn't want people congregating. So we had a drink and left. We're...here for a month we will make sure not to congregate for the remainder of the this yrs visit.More

Every year for 15 years every time, the first restaurant we visit is harborside. Open sitting, beautiful views , fabulous views and of course OC Crush. Never miss a chance to eat here. Always great food and drinks. Always worth the trip.

We decided to stop here after checking out the wild ponies in assateague. We sat outside on the patio. It was a nice atmosphere. Lots of families with kids. After the hostess seated us we waited 15 minutes and no one had been to our...table. A new family got sat and a waitress was at their table within a minute! So 20 mintues and no one has acknowledged us at all. I asked the waitress that was helping the new table what was going on and she was very nice and went to find out. Well she came back to check on us a few mintues later but still no one helped us. So she said she would take care of us. I ordered a cheeseburger well done which was burnt on the outside and raw on the inside. The rest of the food was mediocre. Overall our experience and our food was not so good. We will not be coming back.More

We loved this place! Recommended by a nearby boat dealer and we are thankful. We were looking for crab meat, scallops and shrimp and Harborside delivered. The four big scallop appetizer was outstanding as was the crab cake sandwich and her shrimp wrap. Cold drinks,...good service, and a little pricey ... maybe. Almost $5 for a Heinekin and almost $7.00 for an Absolute and she is from NY and the drink prices were fine with her. I'm from Skittersville, FL and a local canned brew is $1.50 but this place is worth whatever their prices. We sat at the bar and the cute barmaid served us well.More

Yes outside on the dock or out front in the parking lot. Maryland has prohibited smoking inside all bars and restaurants for several years now.
