Traveling with kids can always be a challenge when it comes to finding food we can all agree on. We did take out. Service was friendly and fast. Food was fantastic. Would definitely visit again if we find ourselves in Ocean City.

Bad Monkey Bar & Grill located at 58th street and Coastal Highway in the heart of Ocean City MD features breakfast, lunch and dinner. Eat in or carry out. Check out the great craft beer selection and hand made cocktails upstairs at the burger bar or grab a signature chessesteak and shoestring fries from our downstairs sub shop. Bad Monkey T shirts make a great OC souvenir.
