Description: real food * from scratch We believe that great food and healthful ingredients are not mutually exclusive of each other. We buy organic produce from local farmers and seafood from the commercial fishing harbor right outside our restaurant. We feature all natural products - steering clear of preservatives and antibiotics. Whole grains and whole foods are used in the preparation of our menu - which our chefs write twice daily, based on what's fresh, available and delicious. Fresh. Local. Organic. Taste the difference.

Our third visit was just like the first two. Creative, delicious dishes and superior, friendly service (this time from Danny.) The best in O.C. and one of our favorite restaurants anywhere. If only we lived closer. Maybe we'll move!

Very busy even in off season because this seems to be one of the only fine dining restaurants in Ocean City. Nice lively crowd. Unless you want to get there at 5:00 you must have reservations. Excellent sea food and drink offerings. Fabulous view of the bay. Service warm and friendly. Fine dining....not ordinary beach fare.

My wife and I stopped by for lunch. $5.99 lunch specials are VERY good. Will definitely return to try the dinner menu...

Finished a "stressful" meeting and didnt want hotel food, looked this up on TA and decided to give it a shot. ...AWESOME....scenery, location right in with the sport fishing boats and marinas.,,,had the tuna appetizer which waa the best Ive had in a long time.

We were very excited to visit The Shark after reading all the reviews. The atmosphere and service were excellent. The food was plated nicely and had all the elements of fine dining, except for flavor. The food just wasn't delicious. We had 2 appetizers and each had a local caught fish entree. They needed some salt or something to make them pop, but they just kind of fell flat. Maybe our expectations were too high, but we left a little disappointed.
