Ocean City, MD for March Madness

We are considering going to Ocean City, MD for March Madness but I've never been there during the offseason and am worried that most restaurants/bars will be closed. Has anyone been there during this time of year and are restaurants/bars open. We've been going to Atlantic City the last couple of years but would like to try something different. Any guidance greatly appreciated!

There are a ton of sportsbars open. Depending on where you are staying. I would have to give the nod to Dead Freddie's on 64th street. Their bar has the best HD big screen TV's and plenty of them. Great atmosphere. Also Grotto's sportsbar on 124th would be good.

Burt - concur with Dude2360 and YellowGolf; in addition, there is Nick's near the MD/DE line, the old standby bar, Green Turtle (I know, I know, people either love Green Turtle or hate it).

You are correct that there will be a number of restaurants/hotels, etc. that will not be open that time of year, but, you'll be fine. Enough quality places will be open.

Yep, St. Paddy's day weekend is a great time; if you've never been, you have to check out the parade at least once. Plenty to do afterwards.

When I show people my pics from previous years, they can't believe the size of the crowd.
