Fodor's Review

Don't let the name scare you: The namesake shark is meant to be your dinner, prepared any way you like. This off-the-beaten-path place in West Ocean City is worth the trek and takes advantage of every bay view, including from the sweeping rooftop bar. Dishes experiment with unusual flavors like the tuna with wasabi-cream sauce and pineapple meringue. Go for the Eggplant Tower stuffed with layers of shrimp, lump crab, and wild mushrooms with fresh-shaved Parmesan. Entrées are $5 from 3 pm to 5 pm, and a live jazz band plays on Thursday nights.

The Shark Review

I love this place ! Can't beat the Thursday night lobster specials they have - whenever we are in OC we head here ! Love to look out the windows and see the fishing boats coming in and the service is great. They always surprise you with a complimentary appetizer from the chef which is great !
