We have visited several Pagosa Springs restaurants over 4 visits. Most I wouldn't go back to, and this one is one of those. A lot of the entrees were Cajun and I can't handle spice so I ordered the fried oysters. I've had oysters in NOL and they were small so you could just pop them into your mouth. These... More

I would not have expected to enjoy a seafood restaurant so much in rural Colorado, but we heard some good things. I'm so glad we tried it out! Great cocktail menu, wonderful apps and main dishes. I had the Thai basil with shrimp and scallops, and every bite was full of seafood. The outdoor area is great, the floor is... More

The food was OK, but certainly not in the above average range. The server wrote down the wrong entree for me, so I waited another 15 minutes while my husbands food get cold. There are better restaurant choices in Pagosa Springs.

My wife and I enjoyed a terrific seafood dinner as we drove east through Colorado's rockies. A Chivalrous Shark appeared on the side of the road at the end of a row of shops, and the number of parked cars gave us a hint that this might give us a break from the usual "road trip" fare. I had the... More

Like most Pagosa restaurants, this one is small. Family friendly atmosphere with a New Orleans/Mardi Gras theme. The menu is mostly seafood but with a good variety. Prices are very reasonable in the $12-$18 range. Food quality is in line with the price which is more than I can say for most of the rest of Pagosa. Good food at... More

Our Hotel recommended A Chivalrous Shark, and we were glad we went there. We had conch fritters for appetizers, and they were delicious. I had the SEAFOOD WELLINGTON ($16.95) Crab, mussels, shrimp, calamari & scallops finished with white wine, cream, & pimento. Served in puff pastry - it was huge and fantastic! My brother had SHRIMP & SCALLOPS DEL RIO... More

A treasure in a small town. The Seafood stew was WONDERFUL. Sorry we could not eat it all, the Pena Colada was awesome

Nice staff and owner. Very good food. Loved the fried (?) spinach dish. Everything we've had the 3 times we've been there we enjoyed. We'll go each time we're in the area.

Pleasant ambience, quick and friendly service. We had the shrimp and scallop pasta dish, and the mussel-shrimp-scallop pasta special. Very very generouis servings, extremely generous servings of the seafood (and the tomato bits, etc. on the special); both dishes wonderfully tasty, different and served very hot. Prices reasonable; 15 dollars for the one and 16 dollars for the other.
