Ocean City Restaurants: Open Year-Round

Ocean City Restaurants: Open Year-Round

The weather is chilly and the roads are much emptier as the colder season begins to set in. Many locals return to their favorite locations in town, and visitors who are eager to enjoy Ocean City in the off-season are exploring restaurant deals and specials that come with the end of summer! Unfortunately, many businesses in town close down for the winter and don't open back up til late spring. We've put together a short list of some of our favorite places to eat that remain open year-round!

BJ’s on the Water

Find a wide range of specials each day at BJ’s! Open every day 11am-2pm, they offer Football Tailgate specials, great deals on steamed shrimp, and so much more.

Buxy’s Salty Dog Saloon

OC’s best cheesesteak and greatest Pittsburgh bar! Buxy’s remains open throughout the year, closing certain days of the week depending on local happenings and sporting events. You can be sure if the Pens or Steelers are playing, their doors will be open!

Fager’s Island

The party never stops at Fager’s! Open year-round, you’ll find great off-season specials and a nightlife you didn’t realize was still part of the town in the winter months! Some consider Fager’s to be the “bachelorette party headquarters” all year long.

Phillips Crab House

Who doesn’t love all-you-can-eat seafood and dinners at Phillips! They also offer seafood shipping from the store to your door year-round.

Ristorante Antipasti

Throughout the autumn and winter months, Ristorante Antipasti is closed on Sundays and Mondays, but offers unbeatable deals. Tuesdays are half-price pasta dishes, Wednesdays are half-off wines, and Thursdays are half-price garlic steak!


Beginning in November, Seacrets remains open Thursdays through Sundays in the winter. It’s never a bad weekend if you “find Seacrets and get lost.”

Sunset Grille

As we delve deeper into the offseason, Sunset Grille’s specials and deals continue getting better and better! From $1.99 lunches to weekday dinners like Italian Night and Seafood Feasts, a meal at Sunset Grille is always a great option throughout the winter months.

The Bonfire

Termed the best buffet in Ocean City, The Bonfire remains open year-round Thursdays through Sundays at 4pm. If you get there within their first hour of opening, you can enjoy early bird specials of $3 off the adult buffet!

The Original Greene Turtle

You can find great lunch specials, daily deals, and delicious plates at The Original Green Turtle in North Ocean City. The newest Green Turtle Location in West Ocean City is also open year-round! Are you part of their Mug Club? For a $40 membership fee, you get $1 off drafts and privileges at every location!

We recommend you check online or call the location for winter hours to verify they are open and operating before solidifying your plans, just to be safe! Happy eating!
