Good Meal

We were staying in Cape Canaveral the evening before a cruise and asked for a recommendation from the hotel desk staff. They told us about Shark Pit. The food was very good and reasonably priced. Although we did not order pizza, they had a wood fired oven and the pizza cooking smelled wonderful!

Loved the menu selection. We all had something different and everything was excellent. They had a long happy hour the day we visited. The service was great. We enjoyed watching the chef prepare pizzas. We all loved watching the fish in the tank. Even if you don't stay at the hotel I recommend eating here. I will definitely return my... More

We were in town before heading out on a cruise and wanted a quick bite to eat. The menu offered a nice selection and was reasonably priced. My kids enjoyed watching the sharks and eel in the tank while we ate. Service was great!

We went to this restaurant as it was right beside our hotel and recommended to us. The restaurant had a large aquarium inside with some small sharks and colouful fish inside. It kept the kids entertained and was fun to look at. The staff seemed pretty friendly and the food was ok. They did have a kids menu and the... More

First and foremost, try and eat close to the aquarium! If you plan your visit right, you can see the sharks getting fed. Even if you don't see the sharks feeding the aquarium is worth a visit. The food is typically above average, the pizzas are good as well. The seafood dishes are probably the best thought.

Their cheeseburgers are world class, with so many choices to fit your taste, you can't go wrong. The ahi tuna is grilled to perfection and served generously. With pleasant service and a huge aquarium filled with various fish, sharks and moray eels to watch while you enjoy your food, this restaurant tops the list. One night I ordered the mahi... More

Good bar to hang out to watch a game, food is average. Happy hour 2 for 1 drinks from 3-7 daily (I think) which is a good deal. Location is nice, inside the Four Points hotel. They have a retail store for shopping, a nice aquarium to check out and Starbucks next door but will not recommend for their food.
