Ocean City, Maryland Restaurants
If you’re looking for a calmer, more intimate night of entertainment, Ocean City has plenty of restaurants that offer weekly specials. Call the restaurant you have in mind and check for specials, or consider one of the ones discussed here. The Shark on the Harbor is a fantastic restaurant, with spectacular views of a marina and Assawoman Bay. Their food matches the upscale yet comfortable views, too. At lunch, The Shark serves up $5.99 specials from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The restaurant also has a “Harbor Plate” every day in which visitors can enjoy a $12 entree special until 5 p.m. Waterman’s Seafood Company also has specials on their specialty–succulent, plump, healthy, delicious seafood. The restaurant offers Fish Fry Fridays, in which diners have a choice of a platter of fish, fish n’ chips, or fish tacos. On Sunday, Waterman’s has stuffed flounder or stuffed jumbo shrimp. If you’re feeling lucky and especially brilliant any given Thursday, Waterman’s has team poker trivia from 6-9 p.m. in the bar. Perhaps engulfing hoards of seafood improves brain function…
