Best part of this place is Carmen, a server. She is very good at what she does and you'd think she was the owner, not just an employee. No atmosphere here. Just good fish prepared well for a decent price. We ate here 3 times.

A very small and hard to find restaurant; however, the food is very good. Very small amd crowded and should expand in the future, which I am sure they are looking forward to doing so.

When my in-laws recommended Sharks they made sure to qualify their recommendation by sharing that Shark's Fish House wasn't much from the outside. In fact, when we pulled up outside of Shark's Fish House we almost considered going elsewhere, but their strong recommendation pushed us forward. As another reviewer shared, Sharks is unpretentious, but the food is amazing and the... More

He lives in a health care facility so we always like to take him somewhere where he can get something he wouldn't normally get in the HCF. We had the special which was fish and shrimp. The fish was fresh Pollack; 2 very large pieces, fried... More

After reading several reviews, we decided to eat at Sharks. We are new to N Port as of 2wks ago. We ordered the Lobster Bisque, which was pleasant enough. We then had the Ultimate Basket which was a big disappointment. The breading is far too thick, so we pulled it off. The Basa strips were tasty and the shrimp were... More
