It seems like each winter little changes begin to take shape in the Ocean City business community.  Businesses come and go, swap storefronts and get makeovers.  Let’s look at what’s new in Ocean City for 2017.

Northside Pit & Pub

28th Street Pit & Pub has long been a favorite in Ocean City, and now they have opened a second location on 127th Street.  Their second location features the same great barbeque and their famous $30 Pig Out Challenge. This restaurant is open and ready to serve you!

Shotti’s Point at K-Coast

Shotti’s Point is located on 35th Street next to K-Coast and is a sister restaurant to their Baltimore location of the same name. They offer wood fired pizza, grab and go breakfast, lunch and dinners featuring fresh seafood and sandwiches.  This restaurant is open and ready to serve you!

Dry Dock 28

This new restaurant will be on 28th Street.  The owners of Buxy’s Salty Dog Saloon will be adding this restaurant to their repertoire, but this will feature a more family friendly atmosphere.  The restaurant will feature craft pizza, salads, sandwiches and craft beer.  They are expected to open later this spring.

Suga Shack

28th Street will also be getting a new sweet shop featuring hot donuts, ice cream and coffee.  We love all those things, and can’t wait to try them when they open later this spring.

Rare & Rye

This new restaurant will be opening in the La Quinta Inn on 32nd Street.  This restaurant promises to be a casual fine dining establishment focusing on local ingredients. They are expected to open later this spring.

Located on 118th Street Bayside, Pho-Char Grill brings Vietnamese cuisine to Ocean City. Their contemporary interior and reasonably priced menu make this a must-stop on your next beach trip.  This restaurant is ready to serve you!

Island Creamery Berlin

We admit, this is outside of Ocean City, but as long time visitors of their Chincoteague location, we were too excited to not give this a mention. Island Creamery in Berlin will feature 32 homemade ice cream flavors and homemade waffle cones. They are expected to open later this spring.

The north end of town now has a new laser tag location, featuring arcade games, mini golf and Fat Albert’s Homemade Pizza.  They are open now and ready for you to have fun!
