Restaurants and bars are plentiful along the Ocean City, Maryland boardwalk. You can’t go far without finding Fisher’s popcorn, ice cream by Kohr’s Brothers or Dumser’s, or one of the many food stands along the three mile stretch of boardwalk. You will also find some popular restaurants like Shenanigan’s and the Purple Moose opening right onto the boards. There are others hidden in hotels that are worth trying like the Captain’s Table inside the Courtyard by Marriott.
Everybody loves local craft beer and Backshore Brewing is the only brewery in downtown Ocean City. It’s located at 10th street on the boardwalk.
There are family run restaurants along other streets downtown. Dumser’s main location where they make their ice cream is located between Atlantic and Baltimore Avenues and will be on your left as you head south towards the inlet parking lot. Fisher’s Popcorn is another popular shop with Ocean City’s famous caramel corn. Once you venture over to the bayside, you will find perennial favorites like MR Ducks and the Angler. You can’t leave Ocean City without trying the fresh seafood and goombay smashes on the Angler’s waterfront deck. Then, you can ask your server to give you a ticket for the sunset cruise aboard their large fishing vessel for only $5. We have never been on one of these cruises without seeing dolphins and the kids love the 45 minute tour of the West Ocean City waterfront, the inlet, and if the weather is good, a quick trip up the beach.
