This restaurant is so good we ate there twice this visit.(almost NEVER do that when traveling) The chef is amazingly talented. The menu changes daily as they only serve the freshest of organic ingredients. We ate fish both days and it had come off the boat that morning .Oh! and the salads: "to die for!" Excellent wine selections. Family friendly... More

After a long drive on a rainy, into the midst of a Biker's Fest weekend with thousands of booming choppers zipping along the strip, we did not have high expectations for a fine dining experience. We shopped the references in Tripadvisor. Saw that The Shark on the Harbor was the top rated restaurant. Thought that we'd never get in. We... More

My favorite place to eat. Go for lunch, you won't be disappointed. I had the shark bites the other night, and I can't wait to go back and have them again. Staff is always go friendly.

We were a little worried that this place would be all about location, but not only was the location (right on the harbor) and general bar/restaurant atmosphere great, but the food was also very good and reasonably priced. Not a tourist rip-off.

We stopped in for lunch on a whim and the whole party commented at how delicious the food was. The thing I liked most about this place was the menu based on the catches of the day from local vendors. We had the cheesesteak steamed buns as an appetizer and I had the softshell sandwich for my entree. Both excellent... More

We stumbled on The Shark two years ago by mistake. We had another place in mind, turned into the parking lot and said, oh well, we'll give it a try. Best mistake we ever made. Service excellent, food excellent, prices reasonable for the quality and quantity you get. We have made The Shark a MUST for our visits here to... More

This is hands down one of the BEST meals we've ever had. The view is nice, the atmosphere inside is fresh and relaxing - not stuffy like some other fine dining restaurants. The food - was amazing. There is no other way to describe it. We went for our anniversary on a friday night - the place was packed but... More
