We hadn't been to Sharky's in years, so we tried lunch yesterday. They have improved their food, it appears. Great service, nice drinks and the Mahi Mahi Taco Taco entree was wonderful. Fresh mahi filet with an excellent mango salsa and slaw in warm tortillas. Good fries too. They've expanded in a big way....though some parts (especially the bathrooms) still... More

I had dinner here on Monday with friends from Maine...I had an AWESOME pulled pork sandwich with friends. We had called ahead for a table, the place was packed and the service was over the top. Wish I had left room for dessert though. As always the great weather in Florida did add to the experience.

Took the whole family there a month ago, we ordered a variety of items and none of them were good. The seafood tasted frozen and old, and the appetizers tasted like they came out of a frozen box. Even the vegetables served along with the food was inconsistent in their prep and cooking. I sent a frozen drink back as... More

This place is most fantastic, esp if you bring your friends and are looking for a fun time. There is never a dull moment there. Sometimes its fun to sit on the wooden benches by the sand and sometimes it nice to have a little air conditioning. Bathrooms could use a make-over, though. Food is GREAT!! Also, make sure you...

The location of Sharkys on the edge of the pier looking out over the sand and Gulf of Mexico is very relaxing. I have been here several times before and the food has never disappointed me or my companions. It was very busy the day i went but the service our waitress gave was excellent and the food arrived within... More

We loved the atmosphere of Sharkey's!! Our waitress was wonderful, the food was good, but the wait was over an hour.

This is our 2nd visit here. We were here 14 months ago when we came to the area. We ordered the fried calamari for the 2nd time and it did not disappoint. My husband had the mahi tacos which were superb. I had the crab cake in a salad with dill ranch dressing on the side. The crab cake was... More

Can't beat the waiting area, the pier & beach with a beautiful view. For a holiday, our wait for a table wasn't long. Fun place with good & reasonably priced food. Friendly, but very slow service. The table next to us arrived well after us & almost finished their dinner before ours even arrived.However, since we weren't in a rush,... More

I went to Sharky's on the Pier early on a Sunday in August-slow season. The food was fine, but I'm guessing the staff at this restaurant are so used to this place being busy due to the nice location (on the beach at the entrance of the pier), that they have either forgotten how to treat customers, or they just...

We have been here before but they have really invested in property! This is a busy place and in season --packed! Upstairs is Fin's which is more upscale. The food is really good and the location is awesome--on beach, a really large fishing pier, live music at outdoor bar. Parking is great, you are on the beach. Great spot to... More
