The food is very good, as well as the service. Lunch time is very family friendly. We love sitting out on the padio watching the boats.

I saw someone review negatively about the variety. I found it to be quite excellent for bar food. They have things from shrimp and crab cake po boys (I got - it was good) and pizza to sandwiches and burgers. I mean, don't expect fine dinning, you're at a bar. The atmosphere is relaxed and casual. We sat outside which... More

Both times that I've been to Sharkey's, the service was absolutely horrible! I thought the first time may have just been a fluke, but after returning a second time and getting the worst service ever, I will never return! We waited at least 10 minutes before even getting our water, then another 20 minutes to receive the glass of wine... More

The food is always good (for a bar-type place), great hometown atmosphere, and they deliver! Everything is a very reasonable price too.

We went to Groose Ile to bike around for the day, and looked up Sharkey's on TripAdvisor ahead of time. I saw good and bad, but decided to try it anyway. I came away with about the same thing that I read. It has a wonderful location, and everyone there were very friendly, "except" for our own server. She just... More

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
