This is a nice, casual restaurant with a good choices on the menu at reasonable prices. Love the clam chowder and the chef's salad is huge! Quiet enough to be able to have a nice visit with companions. I recommend trying it.

I wish I could say I liked the good better but after 2 tries, I won't be back. The fish was disappointing and the service slow.

A group of us go out to dinner once a month trying different restaurants in the area. This month we tried Sharkey's. The view was very nice, the staff was very friendly, the prices were good and the food was good with decent sized portions. I think our group of 12 all had something different to eat and there were... More

This is a friendly place with good food and drinks and wonderful polite service. The owners are very friendly and care about their establishment. We always feel at ease here knowing the food has quality, the view is great, and most of the customers are freindly and always willing to start up a conversation. It can get a bit busy... More

We tried to eat at Sharkey's with a group of six people this summer. The restaurant is in a great location on the Island with outdoor seating that overlooks the Detroit river. We ordered food and drinks when we first sat down. After nearly two hours of excuses, we still hadn't received our food. After the waitress informed us that... More

Sharkey's is a great place to good for lunch or a simple dinner. The service has always been helpful and friendly. I've never had to wait for more than a few minutes for service. The last time I was there I had the Michigan salad which good. The dressing I thought was too sweet. You feel like you can sit... More

My husband and I had Lunch for the second time in two weeks at Sharkeys today. My Grilled Chicken Salad with Balsaamic dressing and Spring Mix was wonderful. My husband had a cup of Mushroom soup and the Boneless Pork Chops which he enjoyed. The service was great and our waitress came back often to check on us. Friendly family... More

Sharkey's is a great place to meet people when you are in the island. Staff are very helpful and will give you good service, but also let you linger and enjoy your meal and conversation. In addition to that, the food is good, plentiful and reasonalbly priced. The macaroni and cheese is great and the burgers were huge. I like... More

This is a pub with a patio overlooking Detroit river, and a popular place for golfers to meet for the 19th hole. When we arrived, there was a large group of medium loud golfers having a good time and the place was a tad noisy. We went out on the front patio to watch the afternoon and evening slip. We... More

Any time I am on the Island, I make sure to visit Sharkey's. The views are beautiful and the burgers are inexpensive and delicious! Great place to grab a beer and burger and relax and watch the boats pass by! Love the outside patio!
