We really enjoyed our evening at The Shark, sat at the bar and took in the beautiful view of Assateaque Island across the water. The food was very good for the most part, with just a few little flaws that kept it from being outstanding....More

We enjoyed looking out over the harbor in a very nice dining area. The food was very good but very pricey. I expect that for the shore but this was a bit much. Fifteen dollars for four oysters- yikes. While they were excellent that is...More

Although we did enjoy the excellent service, the menu was not to my liking. There were a lot of items with cream sauces which made the choices very limited for me. It would have been nice to choose from some grilled fish entree’s that were...More

My husband and I enjoyed NYE dinner at the shark. The food was fresh and amazing. The crispy oysters melted in your mouth - not the least bit chewy. The soup of the day was filled with amazing flavor. For the 2 appetizers, 2 entrees...More

The Shark offers specials every week. The catch of the week and local produce are clearly displayed on the menu. The food was delicious. We four sampled the blackened mako, fish taco, ahi soup and Shark salad with grilled shrimp were all amazing. Our server,...More

We write our menu twice daily based on what's fresh and available. The majority of our ingredients are sourced locally so we never know what we're going to have on hand. The beauty of that is we always have a seasonally... More

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.
