Dinner at Sharky's

The view is beautiful and the serviers are nice but the food is less desirable. The fried pickles were over cooked, no taste at all. The Mahi was a small tail piece, very bland no taste at all. The steamed were way over cooked very hard to peel. Nice place for a drink but I wouldn't recommend the... read more

My husband and I recently ate at sharkey's with another couple. We loved the location and the seating. The staff was pretty good but the food was pretty tasteless. Three of us had seafood and one had a burger. I had the fish tacos with an upgrade to grouper and it was not good at all. The seafood and side... More

I have been here before, so decided to go again. The menu had changed some, but for the better. Burgers are still great. If you take your souvenir glass back in, you get a drink for less. Love the new deck. Will be going back.

This is one of the best atmospheres for a restaurant in panama city. Its right on the beach and has a large outdoor seating area. They generally have live music as well. I really enjoy the outdoors, on the beach at sunset with live music. They also have a large tiki bar outside as well. That is the good part.... More

The food is ok not great, service is good. We went for lunch and it is pricey but you are right on the beach and it is a really cool place. The drinks are pricey too. You can get a refillable travel mug that is insulated with 24 oz of drink in it. We already got one from Pineapple Willy's... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Without your feedback we cannot know our weak areas and improve. I apologize for the taste of the chicken tenders - we strive to serve the freshest food on the gulf coast but sometimes that does not happen. I will look into that issue. We did notice comments about the... More

Wings was ok, their seafood was good, could have used more seasoning. the best thing about this place is that it's located on the beach. Overall the staff was superb and friendly, the place itself was clean and organized. I really enjoyed it here.

We ate there at lunch and it was warm inside and outside. I had the chicken ceasar wrap and veggies. I loved the ceasar dressing. Others at the table said the gumbo was cold and too spicey. The fish tacos were really spicey. It was ok, not a favorite.

We went late around 8pm to eat this first night we were at the beach. We sat outside near the bar area and it was a wonderful atmosphere--until the live entertainer on the stage started to sing. He was a bit loud. We couldn't talk without yelling over him and his music. Then he took a break..so we could talk... More
