We wanted to try a new seafood place in Ocean City on the way out of town and based on the reviews we had brunch. Plenty of Gluten Free options on the menu—the seafood omelet was wonderful and the cornbread was to die for!

With the menu being revised daily, it’s always interesting to try something new. Food is fresh and locally sourced. Restaurant is also a nice view and service is always top shelf. Second time here and will come back again.

Glad to get a Fri eve reservation for this little gem in West OC. Hostess was kind and Mandy our server was knowledgeable and friendly. Really good beer and wine selections, imaginative cocktails with local distilled spirits. Warm bagel-bread with pimento spread & whipped butter...More

Our first time here. Breaking out of our “same restaurants every year” rut and glad we did. The menu is creative and well thought out. Everything is regionally sourced. Hands down best crab cake between OC and Rehoboth. Clam broth needs a straw. Save room...More

I can't be certain, but I've visited The Shark on the Harbor throughout much of the year. I know they're open in the "off season". Whenever that is. Ciao

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.
