“Located in West OC, The Shark on the Harbor is a favorite of both locals & tourists. The menu is fresh, locally sourced, and changes daily. Vegan & gluten-free options are available. Check out Trip Advisor for their outstanding reviews and their website for daily menus! From their website: “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.””

“Delish authentic Italian (southern Italian style) located in heart of West OC! Ride bikes or drive-parking can be tough on Friday or Saturday nights. Don’t it’s this place tell Karen we sent you! ”

“Great hole in the wall place with $1.50/crab (11am-3pm) for those who just want a few without committing to a dozen. Great soups, appetizers and desserts too (BEST Key Lime Pie) at very reasonable prices.”
