Hey Cindy, Yes most are still open year round. Some are closing or have closed for the season. But you should find many are still open for business. Come on down for the fall season it's really nice. I think you'll like it.

They sure are! Ocean City enjoys a second season so you’ll find more and more of them are open year-round. The boardwalk never closes, but in the past 10 years people are in and out of town all year long, the business owners and restaurants notice these things and stay open much longer each year, even to the point where they stay open year-round.

There are still about 20% of the restaurants open in town as well.  All the goods ones are open and many of the shops are open on weekends.  OC is still busy until the end of October, then kicks back up for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Most are although some may have shorter hours or may be only open on weekends. But the majority are still open.

Yes but their hours may vary depending on how busy the boardwalk traffic is. I know Tony's Pizza usually stays open till the end of October and Brass Balls is only open on weekends now. 

The Purple Moose is open too, it's just a bar no food but, still a fun place to hear some live music. Band schedule is on their website. 

Have fun in OC!

Yes, most boardwalk shops and restaurant will be open until at least Columbus Day. After that, many shops will remain open at least on weekends, but will slowly be open less and less as we get deeper into the off season. Many places do not have regular hours, but will be open if they sense there is a large enough crowd (usually weekends and good weather) to be worth opening. More restaurants stay open all year. See this thread for some recommendations.
