Had a really nice breakfast sitting by the bay at McGlades. They feature a nice menu with some very interesting choices. We both had very good sandwiches. One note, they do not have pancakes. What breakfast place doesn't offer pancakes? And one big qualifier for me is The Pitcher of Syrup. No little tubs of syrup should ever be used.... More

My brother and I like to try out new places for breakfast, and checked this out today, and we really enjoyed it. A small and casual place, we were greeted as soon as we arrived and sat at a table by the bay. Our waitress was attentive and very friendly. My brother ordered the Uncle Tuse omelet which included delicious... More

Delicious and accommodating to our large group! Very friendly. We had a SUP lesson and they made sure we were out on time. Also, good for kids.

McGlades is a very traditional seashore restaurant. We ate out on the covered deck with a great view of the Ocean City bay -- very pleasant. McGlades breakfast specialties are its omelets. They serve at least 15 different kinds of omelets -- served with home fries, choice of toast and a wedge of orange. Ours were very good. Coffee was... More

We ate here based on a recommendation from my cousin. You wouldn't know it was there! It is nice to sit and look out on the bay while you eat. The service was very slow when we went. The omlets are very good. They are only open until 2 PM so plan to go early to avoid crowds.

We love their menu but the service is painfully slow!!! Breakfast is good but make sure you have time to leisurely enjoy the morning

Great place for casual lunch on covered outside deck with one of a kind bay view in Ocean city. Food was delicious and fresh. Great variety of salads. Crab salad was to die for. Affordable and fast. Servers are friendly. A never miss opportunity when visiting Ocean city. If you don't mind noisy seagulls within earshot( and I don't )... More

We went to the McGlades in Cspe May because the Ocean City one was closed for the season. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch and would have repeated our visit if we could have!!

Sweet view with great food. We got to McGlade's on a Sunday morning right before lunch and we were surprised that it was not packed on a summer weekend. We are locals so we try to avoid the touristy traps and this is not one of them. Service was fast and pleasant with explanations of all entrees. Recommended for a... More

We had breakfast after parasailing which is right next door. Good menu and good food. Seating is overlooking the bay and has great view. Parking if not on the street is pretty much next door in a lot. Service was friendly
