Harborside lives up to its great reputation. Five of us had lunch here and it was a great choice. Nice environment, friendly staff and superior fresh seafood choices. The calamari app was amazing. The fish tacos and ahi Tuna salad all get high marks. And...did I mention the Crushes? Fantastic drinks here ...just beware they are way too easy to drink! For casual dining with menu options for everyone, this place is a very solid choice.More

Fantastic seafood. Love the broiled combo, the fish was fantastic. The Crush drinks were invented here and are very very good. The wait staff is courteous, friendly and attentive. We go there a couple times each visit to OC.

While on a impromptu, mid week, "off season" getaway to Ocean City we went looking for dinner and ended up at the Harborside Bar and Grill. Got there early (4:15 p.m.) and glad we did as we were seated immediately, but when we left people...were lined up outside waiting. Had a good experience. The Harborside had a "locals" atmosphere with lots of activity and a DJ playing lots of loud, oldies-but-goodies music. And the food (ceasar salad with shrimp, chicken tenders, and shrimp imperial) was very good. Recommend the Harborside and we would go again.More

Do not go there until the COVID is over! I ate there Sunday afternoon and there was no social distancing, the bar area was jammed with no masks, no hand sanitizer anywhere and and didn’t seem to be if any concern.

We passed by this restaurant going to Martins fish and co and decided to try it as there are alot of cars parked so we thought this must be good and indeed it didn’t disappoint us. We ordered mussels and buffalo wings and oh myy...twas sooo good! The drinks though are pricey so wouldn’t order one nxt time but will be back for the great food,service,and view.More

Very friendly bartenders and wait staff! Steamed shrimp is yummy...just the right amount of seasoning! So good that we went back several times and looking forward to our next visit (hoping sooner than later).

Yes outside on the dock or out front in the parking lot. Maryland has prohibited smoking inside all bars and restaurants for several years now.
