Wonderful seafood restaurant in a landlocked state, The Chivalrous Shark has a devoted following of local traffic who love being served and entertained by Cathy while being fed by Charlie the wonderful cook! Don't miss the story of the restaurant's name!

Thanks to TA and the local Dining Guide for leading us to this wacky and delicious place for dinner. We sat outside and watched night fall on the mountains. This is terrific fish far from any ocean. We had ceviche and terrific Cuban-style red snapper and Latin-style bouillabaisse. Our hostess, Kathy, was excellent and warm and helpful. There's sand on... More

The waitress was extremely pleasant and very attentive concerning drink refills, etc. You also get a small plate of "goldfish" crackers while awaiting your entree. Appetizer salads (additional price) were brought out quickly . The blue cheese dressing had nice "chunks" in it. Had the seafood wellington, which was abundant and very tasty - lots of seafood in it for... More

I loved the outdoor seating with the sand floor and island themed music. The restaurant was adorable. We stopped in for happy hour and tried shark bites and 1 drink each. All was good, but drinks were a bit pricy even during happy hour (only 50 cents off drinks that are already $7.50-$8.50). Nice place to get a beachy frozen... More

I have to confess, I was doubtful that a landlocked mountain town could serve good seafood. I was delightfully surprised and pleased to find that I was wrong. Food was delicious - reminiscent of Italian see food restaurants in San Francisco. Delicious sauces and shrimp. Loved the friendly service. And you have to check out the Chivalrous Shark poem on...

I first called from my hotel room to inquire about gluten-free options, and the lady I spoke with was so incredibly patient and friendly. She went through the entire GF menu items over the phone, ensuring that she was knowledgeable about what I was talking about, and had such a variety of options. My husband and I immediately left the... More

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
