I was not very hungry so all I had was a bison burger that was cooked very nicely at a medium rare and paired with a local Flying Fish Brewer ale. My dinner companions were very satisfied with their dinners also.

We really enjoyed our evening at The Shark, sat at the bar and took in the beautiful view of Assateaque Island across the water. The food was very good for the most part, with just a few little flaws that kept it from being outstanding....More

My wife and I went to The Shark for lunch. It is located on the harbor in West OC. Their seafood is purchased from local fisherman (you can see where the boats unload their catch). Their fruits and veggies are from local farms. Even the...More

We write our menu twice daily based on what's fresh and available. The majority of our ingredients are sourced locally so we never know what we're going to have on hand. The beauty of that is we always have a seasonally... More

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.
