Good food with a great beach atmosphere. Sit on the deck if you can and enjoy live music on many nights.

Great ambiance, good service! The pier is right there to take an after dinner stroll. A very popular Venice watering hole for both locals and visitors.

Waterfront restaurant in the area perhaps on the West coast of FL! Best fresh fish prepared just the way you like it. Love the seafood pasta. Beautiful Gulf views. It's been our friends' favorite and ours for 25 years

Sharkeys has a lot of good things going for it. Great View--Good Food==Decent Service It is a good place to take visitors, but there is usually a wait of up to an hour or more and it is very noisy.

Sharky's is a must to bring your visitors for a fun ocean side dinning. The location is great as you can spend the day at the beach and stop in for lunch or a fun drink! Fishing pier is a great way to kill some time while waiting for a table……Menu has something for everyone. Enjoy!

This place is a gold mine for the owners but locals can't get near it in the winter. Tourists rush in sat opening time and grab tables in a mad dash. The food is very expensive and not very good. They just opened a new restaurant on an upper level that is REALLY expensive. There should be an island band... More

When we have people from out of town, we go here mainly if it is off season. Outstanding views in a community on an 'island'. There is so much to like about this place even if there are better places to find seafood. People come here for the atmosphere, the drinks, sunsets and yes, pretty good food. After eating, walk...

Sharky's is great beach food and ON the beach!! Cool!! New is Fins. an upscale restaurant.... especially for Venice! Watch the sunset....inside or out! Good wine selection and cold beer! The food is great... pricey but worth it for a treat! The only downer was the noise! The lack of sound deadening makes conversation difficult. Hopefully they will correct this... More
