    Harrison's Harbor Watch is for You!: If you like raw food, and I know some do,

    by tpangelinan Written Oct 4, 2003

    HARRISONS HARBOR WATCH

    Great food, beautiful restaurant, what a view! Ask your hotel for a recomendation, and you may get a coupon to this great tradition at the begining of the boardwalk. It is right by the museum, and some great rides too, beautiful shops, location is a plus too!
    It is a bit pricy, so save it for your big dinner out!

    Favorite Dish: Raw Bar is open Saturday and Sunday.
    I like the Chicken Chesapeake, Chicken breast stuffed with crab meat. Yum! Great salad with dinner, and all the side dishes you can eat!

    Tony's Pizza: Tony's Pizza has roof top ocean view dining.

    by tpangelinan Written Oct 10, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tony's Pizza, Ocean City MD

    You simply can not beat the view that this roof top dining has! Parent hint...we found this a great spot to sip pina coladas and watch the ocean, and boardwalk. Interestingly enough, our teenagers walked past with friends, and we got a chance to see how they behave when they think we are not around (ie, good spy spot)! ;-)

    Favorite Dish: Salad and Pizza!!
    Cheese Steaks are great too!
    They serve mixed drinks and beer also!

    Hoopers: All you can eat crabs!!!!

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place is the best. We just went yesterday and I can't wait to go back!.. I never knew crabs could be so good!.. Among four of us we finished at least fifty of them. I am really a huge seafood lover and critic of restaurants that serve them but this one really does it right!

    Favorite Dish: Just get the crabs!! Oh yeah I forgot that we also ordered some raw clams too that were delicious.

    JR's Ribs

    by Ewingjr98 Updated Dec 2, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    JR's is undoubtedly the most popular and successful BBQ restaurant in Ocean City. With 3 locations along the beach, you are never too far from JR's. Their specialties are baby back ribs and beef ribs, but they also offer a good variety of seafood, steaks, and chicken.

    I had the full rack of baby back ribs for $19. That is a little pricy for ribs, and the rack was smaller than average. It was very tasty, though!

    JR's also has a good variety of beer including Killians on tap, domestic bottles, and import bottles from Guinness to Corona.

    Hudak's on the Boards

    by Ewingjr98 Updated Jul 10, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hudak's is a locally owned restaurant on the Ocean City boardwalk. They have just about everything including breakfast, pizza, gyros, hamburgers, fries, you name it. They also offer beer, soft drinks, and bottled water.

    Our only problem was the cost... $18.00 for two small sandwiches and two 1-Liter bottles of water! I guess we paid for the convenience of eating on the boardwalk.

  • Pizza Boy: AVOID PIZZA BOY ON THE BOARDWALK!!!

    by sauravghosh Written Aug 20, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We couldn't even try the food because we couldn't get past their beverage on Saturday, Aug. 20, 2005 (late afternoon). Their customer service is sooo poor, that you can't even ask for a packet of ketchup as a paying customer. That's right, a packet of ketchup was denied to us when we had just paid $2.00 for a medium pepsi. Their explanation was, "You HAVE to purchase our FOOD in order to receive our condiments." Is that ridiculous or what? Turns out the manager is just as ignorant. Please, do yourself a favor and avoid a place where paying customers are rudely treated and dismissed.

    Favorite Dish: The reason they gave for this rather stupid policy is that Thrasher's Fries, which does remarkably good business for mediocre fries, does not offer ketchup -- and they are rather rude about that, too. Rather than take advantage of this lack, Pizza Boy decides to have a rude policy that ignores customer service. If they only put up a sign saying "Get 3 free packets of Ketchup for your Thrasher's Fries with every purchase of a medium Pepsi!" they would steal away customers from Thrasher's fries or other establishments, at such a minimal cost as to be negligible (I really don't think 3 packets of ketchup would even come close to hurting their profit margin on $2 medium pepsi's). "Ignorance is bliss" seems to be the motto of this establishment.

  • Bahama Mama's: Best crab cakes!

    by dzni Written Jul 9, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sit on the deck outside, or sit inside if you like. There are at least two of this local chain that I saw. All I can say is this is the best crab cake I've had, ever! Large chunks of crab with only a little breading to hold it together made for a sumptuous lunch on the waterfront (bay side)!

    Favorite Dish: Crab Cakes
