Nice island vibe, great Tex Mex and drinks!

I visited the Edgartown location. Much better than expected for Tex Mex style restaurant. Had a cool island vibe, great crowd, very attentive and friendly server, food & drinks were great! Two of us ate/drank and the bill was shockingly low. Recommended!

Had a really good experience here, after having been on the island for two months I can't believe I have only just stumbled across this restaurant! Mexican food is my favourite and this did not disappoint. We ordered and the food came out quickly, whilst we were eating the starter the manager came over and introduced herself asking how the...

Good family restaurant with video games. Outdoor seating and margaritas were great. Tourist pricing and food was good not great.

This is our favorite Mexican restaurant anywhere. We have a seasonal home on the Vineyard and we done at Sharky's very often. All of the food is freshly prepared and not too pricey for the Vineyard. It's a fun atmosphere and good for patrons of all ages. Family's, couples, etc. it's also a good place to catch a major league... More

We arrived on the island early morning on a Saturday but could not move into the rental home until mid afternoon. Just after 1PM, we popped into Sharkey's Cantina for a bite to eat and to wait for the rental to become available. The bar had perhaps 5 people sitting at it. There was one large party (about 8 people)... More

I'm sorry to read your review. We have one of the top staffs on island and we cater to more large parties than any other restaurant on island- we are known as the large party gathering spot. My managers and I have spoken and nobody remembers this situation occurring so I apologize, but don't have anything to add except that... More

This is one of our mainstay restaurants when we come in the summer for a week. Even the busiest week of the summer you can usually get in without too much of a wait (when you have starving kids, that is critical). Food is good, good amount of choices and very good portions. Lots of great nachos and burritos to... More

Our family (~20) has made a habit of visiting Sharky's for good Mexican food. Handled our group in three tables, including one for the grandchildren. Our one grandson demands we go there each year. (Hey Donald Trump, do you not like Mexico''s food either?)

Sharky's has two locations a small cafe in Oak Bluffs and the larger restaurant in Edgartown close to the Stop and Shop. They specialize in Mexican fare, burgers and wings. The Mexican food is typical of American Mexican and plentiful and filling. In Edgatown, featured are cocktails of all sorts, as this is bar where people meet, to be seen... More

Thanks so much for the excellent review! I would like to mention that from 5:30p - 9pm we are basically family central in the dining rooms and on the patio...our speciality is large parties outside, and tons of families, couples, friends, etc inside and out as well! While they often say you can't please everybody, we try...all demographics are welcome... More

We stopped here for lunch, the menu looked pretty good and there werent a ton of options for Mexican on the island. The restaurant is fun and the kids enjoyed all the shark stuff scattered around. The drinks were OK, pretty expensive for average margaritas. The food was clearly prepared long before we arrived. The beans were in the shape... More

Hi- our food is made from scratch and prepared to order, like any taqueria style menu of course the beans are held hot, and yes, they are scooped onto the plate...the same as going to Chipotle and they build your food in front of you, except we are full service. Our quesadillas start at $9.99, so if you add lobster... More

Varied menu. Family friendly. Coconut shrimp was fair. Husband had some sort of burrito which he claimed was good. Great place for a large family.
