Excellent Food, Service, and Selection. We had Sea Bass, Rockfish, a Pork dish, and all were prepared Perfectly. Prices were "spot on" for the Quality!

I've been here a couple of times and it's very decent. Nothing special but the food and service is good. The view is great.

Found this place via online reviews, and it was excellent. As noted, the menu varies from day to day. Locally-sourced. A relatively broad range of vegetarian options, too. Away from the Boardwalk, back on the mainland across the bridge.

Good food, disappointed with service and seating though I suspect both were coincidental. A disappointing first experience. With all the other options probably won't try again.

My husband and I came to OCMD for the weekend from NJ. We basically come just to eat at Shark on the Harbor. It's that good. Since it's still the off season we didn't have any problems getting a table on a Friday night @...More

The menu changes regularly based on season and availability of fish and vegetables. Locally grown bison is usually available as a burger

The owners bring varied interesting meals to the menu. As an example Lion fish. This fish is ruining the reefs in the Carribean but it tastes awesome so Chef Travis is serving it at The Shark. Innovation!!! The bartenders and waitresses are very friendly The...More

If you like good well prepared food don't miss The Shark. Great setting in the west Ocean City Harbor with above average service. The fish dishes are excellent...

Took our friends here for their first visit. Reservations are highly recommended - even in the off season. Food is ridiculously fresh, and the entrees are very creative. We had Mako, Mahi, pork, and crab cakes at our table. Three were excellent - the crab...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.
