When we rent a pontoon boat, are there waterfront restaurants accessible by boat? Yes, there are! Let’s take a look at where they are and what they offer.

To us, the perfect day is one spent on the water. When we just want to enjoy the sights of OC and the smell of the salty ocean air with our friends and family by our side, that’s when we get on the pontoon boat. Pontoon boats are the perfect way to spend precious vacation time with loved ones. They’re also one of the best ways to take in the beauty and wonder that is Ocean City in the summertime – when the skies are blue and clear, and later when the sun sets and casts vibrant pink, orange, and purple shades across the peninsula. The memories you will create are priceless!

There is so much to do when renting a pontoon boat in Ocean City, Maryland, and many places to go, including some fantastic restaurants. In this blog, we are going to focus on those restaurants and what they offer. You can, of course, just drive across the bay for the entirety of your two, four, six, and even eight-hour rental, but there’s a good chance you’ll get hungry when you pass some of Ocean City’s most famous bayside restaurants and smell what they’re serving for dinner. If you do not want to sit down at the restaurant, you can order take out, bring it back to eat on the boat. Can you imagine having a nice dinner while watching the sunset ON A BOAT?!?!

Most popular restaurants that can be accessed by our pontoon rentals:

Seacrets: (Pictured) Menu: If you’re a regular visitor of Ocean City, then you’re probably more than familiar with Seacrets Jamaica USA. Seacrets can be quickly and easily accessed by boat, especially if renting from Odyssea Watersports, and once you’re there, you can eat in the water, too. On a hot summer day, it’s not uncommon to see hundreds of diners drinking, dining, and having the time of their lives in Seacrets’ waterfront dining area. You’ll find Seacrets bayside on 49th Street, Odyssea Watersports is located in the SAME parking lot.

Taphouse 45th St: Menu: (Dog Friendly) Just down the way from Odyssea Watersports and Seacrets is another wonderful bayside restaurant, Tap House. Pull your boat up to their dock and tie up in one of their boat slips. Head inside or sit on their deck overlooking the bay. Tip: Check out the sunset from here even if you are not renting a boat, you’ll be thankful you did!

Macky’s: Menu: (Dog Friendly) Macky’s is another waterfront restaurant that’s especially known for its sunset views. They’re also a pet-friendly restaurant, so if your dog is on the boat with you, they can eat with you outdoors and even order something from the doggie menu. Macky’s is located bayside on 53rd Street.

De Lazy Lizard: Menu: De Lazy Lizard is a fantastic lunch and dinner spot for kids and grown-ups alike – kids like the expansive play area, while adults gravitate toward the open-air bar and live entertainment that occurs nightly in the summer. You’ll have to go a bit further to get to this locale, though – De Lazy Lizard is located bayside on 1st Street.
