Had a party of over 10 people and decided to stop here for steamed crabs. Didn't realize they didn't serve steamed crabs. We stayed anyway. The staff was efficient putting three tables together for us. Everyone was pleased with the food they ordered. The food was served hot and the guests were all served at the same time. The original orange crushes were good. We ordered the Blackened Scallops Imperial and it was excellent and reasonably priced. Seasoning was perfect. Not much selection in the way of vegetables for an entrée dinner--only coleslaw or veg of the day which was collard greens. At least one other, mixed vegs, succotash, peas/carrots, green beans, corn, etc., would have been nice. As others have stated it is noisy probably due to all the wood interior but also the 2 piece entertainment was too loud and we were on the opposite end of where they were playing. Overall good food, drinks and competitive pricing for seafood. Will definitely return.

We took a mini fall vacation to OCM, as usual, and always do a special night to dine for seafood. Looking for that special seafood place, we chose to go back to Harborside. Enjoyed our last visit, the food and service were great, only we had a better table this time, right along the harbor. Hitting it right, not only was the combo seafood platters delicious, but hit the happy hour for great drinks at great prices. It can be noisy, but that doesn't bother us.

My friends and I visit Ocean City every year. Harborside has emerged as my favorite place. It is not corporate nor pretentious!! It is what you would envision Margaritaville should look like. Often a two piece musician playing, games on the TVs and a waterside view. Drinks are great and they specialize in making the Ocean City favorite, Orange Crush. They also make many variations if orange or vodka is not your thing! The true surprise is the food. The fish is super fresh and prepared well. The Calamari appetizer with Asiago and Bannana peppers is a fan favorite. The blackened grouper BLT was delicious with a nice Aioli. Land lovers have many options as well! It's a great break from the jalepeno poppers and buffalo wing joints!! Try it, you won't be disappointed!

We liked the crushes but the apps were even better. The crab dip and coconut shrimp were amazing. We actually wished we had just ordered two of each. The wraps we ordered for dinner were not very impressive but that was the only disappointment for us. Good service, nice seating on the deck, and awesome view.

We went here after another restaurant was closed. We ordered some wings and shrimp for an appetizer as they were cheaper during happy hour. The wings were good. The shrimp was good but very dirty. It took a lot more to clean these than other shrimp we have had in the area. I ordered fried shrimp dinner with a baked potato and apple sauce. Apple sauce had no taste. The baked potato came with no butter and only sour creme. Asked for tartar sauce, butter, and sour creme. Only received the butter. My other guests ordered fish tacos and enjoyed them. We sat in the open air seating area. It was hard to hear and talk and there were tons of flies. We had to keep moving flies away from our food. Average at best.
