Fun place!

We've been a few times, for lunch only, and enjoyed our experience. The fish tacos are crazy good and I highly recommend an extra shot of Meyers Rum Pina colada!

Awesome food, awesome view, great music and ambiance. We really liked this place. We played on the beach with the kids and no one was there. We had the beach all to our selves. End of August is the best time. We then went to the restaurant and ordered our food. EVERYTHING WAS GREAT. The service was great, the food... More

We stopped by Sharkey's for lunch yesterday and had a nice meal outside on their patio. I had enough seafood for the week, so I opted for the big burger. Man, was that one good burger! It had the taste of something I would pull off my grill at home. The fries were ok, nothing special. My wife had the... More

Was right off the beach. Great price and drinks were done right. Sat and chatted with the staff. Manager check to see how we were doing. Oh by the way. Don't feed the birds. They are not afraid of you.

Great food, decent prices, very friendly staff, and fantasic entertainment. Love the fact that they have a late night menu because time seems to get away from you in PCB. The food portions are really large and the waiters and waitresses are super friendly and very knowledgeable on the food and drinks. You'll definitely want to visit here.

Service was good but the food was just so-so. Really crowded and loud which is OK with us. I had the blackened grouper sandwich which was hot and seasoned well but I'm not sure the fish was very fresh. My wife had the mahi dinner and was not impressed. We all decided it just wasn't all that great.

Don't let all the people waiting to get in fool you. the food is below average and it's way overpriced. The only reason to go is the fact that it's on the beach.

I ate lunch on my birthday, lots of flies flying around, my drink was to sweet and watered down, my backend grouper was a salt grouper. I am a local, i should have known better. Don't waste your time.

We stopped by to enjoy the view and got some of the best burgers we could ask for! Perfectly seasoned and cooked! We are gonna try to make it back down that way Before our trip is over!

This place was alright. It wasn't great, but it wasn't terrible either. The beach makes this restaurant popular, in my opinion. We went for lunch and the food was just . . . meh. Maybe the proper way to enjoy Sharky's is in the evening with cocktails and appetizers instead.
