The Shark on the Harbor - O.C. MD

I just realized I never posted about the amazing dinner we had at The Shark on the Harbor in Ocean City a few weeks ago. We actually ended up there by accident, since the first two restaurants we tried weren't open on Thursdays, and Sunset Grille had an hour wait. As we pulled out of Sunset Grille parking lot, I spotted The Shark across the street and remembered reading great online reviews, so I suggested we give it a try. Luckily, they had a table, and soon, we were eating one of the best meals of our lives!!! :O)

real food * from scratch

"We believe that great food and healthful ingredients are not mutually exclusive of each other. We buy organic produce from local farmers and seafood from the commercial fishing harbor right outside our restaurant. We feature all natural products - steering clear of preservatives and antibiotics. Whole grains and whole foods are used in the preparation of our menu - which our chefs write twice daily, based on what's fresh, available and delicious. Fresh. Local. Organic. Taste the difference."

 
 
The menu is written daily, based on what's available from local farmers and commercial fishermen. The menu also provides the local vendor names that supply the ingredients for each the meal.

Our meal:
 
Make sure you order the bread!!!!! It's not your ordinary bread basket! YUM!
 
 
As an app, (((of course))) Peter ordered the Mussels (w/ andouille sausage).....

 
He said these were fantastic!
(and 3 dozen mussels for $10....fantastic price!)
 
For his entree, he chose the Grilled Swordfish special....

 
I chose the Beet & Berry Salad w/ Grilled Swordfish.
(roasted beets, berries (the strawberries and blackberries were the sweetest, juiciest ever!!), micro greens, vidalia mascarpone, house pickled pepper vinaigrette
 
 
This dish was one the freshest, tastiest meals I have ever eaten!!!
The blend of flavors was amazing!!
 
 
We decided to split dessert and ordered the Black Berry & Bourbon Cobbler.
 
 
YUMMMMM!!!!
 
I can hardly wait to go back!!! I love finding "hidden gems"! While I know Sunset Grille has great food and an awesome atmosphere (and we will return), I can't help but dream about the amazing food at The Shark and choose it as our new favorite O.C. restaurant!! :O)
