Island Grill: A safari & seafaring menu
Island Grill is an upscale, family-friendly restaurant. I recommend this place especially because of some of the unconventional menu offerings... Don't worry, most of the food on the menu is traditional steaks and pasta, and an extensive seafood menu. But for the adventurous there's ostrich on the the menu everyday. And the Safari Menu includes seasonally available items on Thursdays through Sundays. Offerings include Blackbuck Antelope, South Texas Antelope, Buffalo, Elk, Lake Victoria Perch, Pheasant, Wild Boar, Kangaroo, Zebra Bear, Moose, Venison, Snake, and Alligator. You have to agree it is one of the most daring menus you've seen in a long time. So don't be afraid, check it out! And just in case you chicken out, there's always Veal Parmigiana...

Promenade food court: Something for everyone
The promenade is an awesome food court that has tons of choices ranging from pizza, to seafood, to periogis, funnel cake, donuts, canolis, fries and more. It's a really great spot to get a bite to eat. It's very convient if you are with a group of people who can't agree on what to eat!
Favorite Dish: The Pizza, french fries and canolis!!!!

Green Grill: The Breakfast Club
There's a wait on most days for a table. But it doesn't take long. Service is quick. You can get a good, hearty breakfast and start your day off well-fortified. Of course, if you plan on hitting the beach in a bikini, you may just opt for juice and a bagel!
Two Mile Landing: Family Favorite
Two Mile Landing is a marina on the bay with two restuarants. One fancy, one not. We go to the not fancy side! The Two Mile Inn. The other one, I can't remember the name, but it has Lobster in it somewhere ! (the name)
We like to sit on the deck and make a big mess eating crabs, oysters and clams. Boats come and go, and the sun sets beautifully over the bay. You can also sit inside and STILL have a great view. (like this picture here) Sometimes it's too hot for the deck even on the bay! Service is right on, the staff is friendly and the seafood of good flavor and abundance! We always try new places, but keep on coming back here.
Favorite Dish: If you go parasailing, this marina is the starting point.
Bubba Mac Shack: Atmosphere, good grub, and entertainment
Offers seafood and ribs, burgers.
Keep in mind that Ocean City is dry. (no alcohol sold) So if you want to imbibe, ride over a bridge and a host of restaurants are there to indulge you. At Bubba's you can eat inside, (never have) or on the deck. It's fun to watch the boats come and go in the adjoining marina from your table on the deck. You can also eat by the stage area. That's a good place to request a table if you plan on hanging around to watch the band. Guest bands, or Bubba's. Music I've heard includes, jazz, blues, and country rock.
Your Place: Don't Miss the Fresh Seafood! (notice anything?)
If your staying at a rental, take a night for take-outs.

They have a restaurant too. But to save money and yet get the same good food, go pick it up yourself on 9th street.
Katina's Gyro Restaurant: Dionysus would be proud
Katina's is a very small casual restaurant offering a variety of Greek dishes at extremely reasonable prices.
Favorite Dish: Go for the hummus appetizer, the lemon soup, the souvlaki entree, and some spinach pie.
I'm hungry just thinking about it.
EXPRESS, Pizza and Subs: EXPRESS, Pizza and Subs
You can eat in, take out, or take advantage of their fast, free delivery.
Favorite Dish: Grilled Chicken Calzone, Its not on the menu but ask for it anyways.
I usually get the special, 2 slices and a coke. Their calzones are to die for.
Bashful Banana: Bashful Banana
One of the few places I have ever seen on a boardwalk that offer vegetarian & otherwise, healthy foods that are delicious. Inexpensive and outside dining only but who needs to eat inside when on the beach. Homemade baked goods are fantastic.
Favorite Dish: frozen banana
The Chatterbox: The Chatterbox
Ocean City's Diner. Open very late during busy season.
A favorite meeting place for many.
Favorite Dish: Cheeseburger and french fries.
