Lunch special not to be missed!

Locals stirred us to this place for their $6.99 lunch special. OMG, the food was fantastic....sobe noodles, all fresh, local sourced foods.....the drinks were among the best I've had anywhere........no skimping on the alcohol and all handmade, fresh ingredients ......absolutely a "10".

We saw on-line and also heard from locals that Shark on the Harbor was a good place to eat so we gave it a shot. We were seated right away and had a table where we could view the harbor. Server was prompt and courteous at all times with great suggestions and very responsive to any requests. I split a... More

We loved this restaurant so much that lunch wasn't enough. We came back the next day for dinner. The menu changes daily and their food is so fresh. The crab cake sandwich and stuffed avocado are amazing. The chefs blend the most amazing flavors- definitely not your plain usual meal. Service is great too. I highly recommend.

I had the filet mignon which was tender, juicy and cooked perfectly! My husband had "the best crab cakes he's... More

We spent four nights in OC. First night we ate at Hooked which we loved, loved, loved!... Second at Hoopers for amazing fresh seafood.... Third at Sunset in which the food is good but setting was so upscale and amazing... We thought we saved the best for last when we went to the Shark on the Harbor. The ambience is... More

The Shark never disappoints. Farm and Sea to table menu always offers some unique dishes. The service is aways attentive and friendly. Casual and vibrant atmosphere for fine dining cuisine.

From small plates to entrees and the steamed shrimp in between we had a great meal. There is a lot of thought put into the combination of flavors that the chef has developed. What is great is that you get interesting cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere. Mackenzi was our server and did an excellent job. She is relatively new but... More
