How we came about!
In the Spring of 2007, Mayor Sal Perillo
called for volunteers to address the improvement and level of
perception of restaurants in Ocean City. A meeting was held in
April at the Music Pier under the leadership of George Bauer and
Eileen Friedman of the Mayor's Commission on Volunteers. Many
members of the restaurant community showed their support by
A Task Force was then established to set direction for a series
of organizational meetings through the Spring and early Summer.
Finally, in July of 2007, an Association was formed and adopted
the name, Ocean City Restaurant Association. We now meet once a
month to discuss issues of common interest and provide training
on topical needs as warranted.
The mission of the Ocean City Restaurant Association is to make
it known within our community, as well reaching out to all
visitors coming to our great city, that there are many wonderful
dining experiences to be had in Ocean City.
What our town has to offer:
Ocean City has many diverse dining and eating opportunities from
white linen dining to small cozy cafes and snack shops. We
offer breakfast, lunch, dinner, pizza, snacks, desserts, ice
cream, take-out, delivery, catering and banquets in unique
settings from ocean front to bay-side dining, and everything in
between. These experiences are available not only in the summer
months, but also in the off season as well.
This website will help guide you through the high season as well
as the off season by listing: special events, restaurant
hours, menus and numerous activities occurring around the city.
Our wish is that you find everything you need within this site
to make your stay in Ocean City the best that it can be! If you
