DINNER AT SHARKEY'S

Went on a dinner date to Sharkey's with my wife and my brother and his wife and kids. First let me state one thing out of the gate. This restaurant's decor is old, very old, but clean. So if you are the type of person worried about that, this place is not for you. With that aside we had several... read more

We went there with a group of about 10 people. We were seated at a long, narrow table that made it pretty much impossible to hear people at the other end of the table. As to the food--I can only comment on the people at my end of the table since I have no idea what was going on at... More

Went for some lunch before a 2pm EST appointment. Informed the waitress that we had an appointment at 2pm at the Binghamton University college campus and she said it was about 10 minutes away so we had plenty of time. Sat down at about 12:45 and ordered a dozen wings, pork spedie over salad, chicken spedie sandwich with fries, a... More

This time, my husband took a trip.down memory lane and enjoyed the fabulous pork spiedies sandwich. It was as good as he remembered from 35 years ago, when he first ate at Sharkeys. He brought me here in the late 80's to introduce me to whatever a spiedies was, as I had heard all about it. This trip, I really... More

The clams are exceptional here however that is not what we ordered this time. We were craving spiedie's and city chicken, both were average at best. There are other local places where both are done much better. Most of what we had was fried, dried out and more like average bar food. We left disappointed.

Someone wrote that Sharkey's is old. That is an under statement. I first started going there in the 60's and for the most part the interior is exactly the same as it was back then. I confess I have always liked their pizza. While not quite as good as it was in the 60's and 70's it is still pretty... More

We recently stopped at Sharkey's after visiting relatives in Binghamton. This was our go-to place many, many years ago for clams and spiedies, and I was very excited to be back. The building appeared to be exactly the same - meaning it is now very decrepit, but in a good funky way. Some in our party ordered halupkis and pierogis,... More

You are absolutely correct about Sharkey's -- the once-vaunted spiedies aren't what they used to be. I was there summer of 2012 and had much the same experience, Bo. The better spiedies in town are at Lupo's in Endicott, S&S on upper Court Street (I believe Lupos and S&S are owned by the same family) and even a few other... More

Born and raised in "Bimington", Sharkey's is an institution. It is the same now as it was almost 50 years ago when my parents would come here after a Saturday night out to load up on spiedies and steamed clams. As a teen, I spent many a Friday and/or Saturday night in the darkened booths in the back munching on... More
