“Fresh seafood - great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

Shark on the harbor is an upscale seafood restaurant just minutes from the ocean city boardwalk set on the water. The food is delicious, the setting beautiful and the atmosphere welcoming. Most interesting is the menu changes daily! You are guaranteed the freshest of seafood. We dined three of us on a weekday evening. The appetizers are enough to wet your palate including the locally caught scallops, named for the ship captain that caught them as we'll as a courtesy app, chef selection that each tables receives. For entrees I enjoyed a perfectly cooked swordfish served with couscous and eggplant in their own sauce. My friends enjoyed crabmeat stuffed eggplant and an apple blue cheese grilled onion topped filet. Everything was amazing and our server catered to our every question with a smile. We will definitely return to the shark and I urge everyone else to as well!

“Relaxing weekend meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

My wife and I were in OC for the weekend and always make a point of visiting the shark. Consistently great food, unique menu that changes with product availability. Reasonable price. Watched football on the flay screen tvs. No reservation needed this time of the year.

“Great atmosphere and Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

went to the Sharl last week for a friends Birthday dinner. we made happy hour for pre drinks, great prices and also a good selection of beers and wine. Bartenders very accommodating. Sat down and we ordered some appetizers all fantastic and interesting tastes. friend and i shared a seaweed salad and I had the Bison Burger. both great! Chef sent us some dessert for the birthday girl,. you can tell this restaurant cares about its patrons.

“Not the typical "Bar style food"!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

This is my favorite place to eat dinner whenever we visit O.C. MD. This is NOT your typical place to eat. The menu changes depending on what is coming in fresh off the boats and they use local produce. I have eaten here many times and EVERYTHING is fabulous!!! You should make reservations as this is a small place and always filled up. This is a MUST if you really enjoy good food.
