It seemed that everything we ordered from the menu was not available. However, the lobster was good and the rum was strong and in large measures. Hawkers do approach you as you sit eating but they are easily dissuaded with a polite

We were told to go here for the Jerk Chicken. It was good but didn't have much spice and didn't taste any different than the chicken I grill out.

Yummy drinks and delicious locally caught food. Everything is made to order and the menu does not usually reflect what foods they have. Love the casual, local feel.

We had to eat at Sharkies as a last resort because the restaurant we had planned to go to with large family closed early. Sharkies was open and could seat 14 of us. As a last minute choice it was ok Very casual beachside eats. Very slow service but food was good and very reasonable. We would not recommend this... More

Food was AMAZING, but don't expect anything fancy. The food was definitely fresh - I picked my fish of choice right off the counter where the fish had been cleaned. Fried conch was delicious! Food is cook to order so was a bit of a wait, but worth it.

Good Jamaican food outside the resort. Loved having the chance to pick out your own fish and have them cook it to your liking while sitting outside on the beach.

There is great potential for this establishment, but in spite of management changes over the past few years the potential has not been exploited. My most recent visit was on March 7 when I took my Canadian visitor for lunch - late lunch since food is seldom ready at posted opening time of noon. Service was very slow. Most menu... More

If you want seafood this is the spot. Its a ten minute walk from the hotel but you can hire a taxi for $20 roundtrip and he will give you his number for the waitress to call to pick you up. The food was good but its takes a long time (40 mins) and my stew conch was lukewarm. My... More

We had the pleasure of dining at Sharkies while on vacation at the FDR down the street. It was wonderful to sit outside at this low key establishment where it appeared many locals were dining. Try anything with the curry sauce and you will not be disappointed!
