Enjoyed lunch here this weekend for the first time. Great food, good service and such a fun atmosphere! I had the BBQ sandwich and my husband had the Cuban sandwich. We shared an order of hush puppies. Would definitely dine here again!!

Stopped in for a drink & appetizer, Nice friendly service. Tried the deep fried Mac and cheese bites, a little salty but yummy. The restaurant had a good menu and water front dining and was open in the beaches off season.

Great location. Had. Shrimp scallops combo. Scallops were ok but the shrimp were very tiny and over cooked. Service was fine. Will try again but skip the shrimp

My daughter and I decided to check out this restaurant because of the good reviews on trip advisor. Great, beachy type atmosphere. I ordered the Shrimp and Grits after an order of hush puppies with sweet cinnamon butter. Soooo good!! Service was prompt, food came out quickly, with the manager checking on each table. We got there about 6:30 on... More

One of my favorite things being at the coast is trying the different "beachy" places to eat. Sharky's did not disappoint. I loved the feel of the place and all the decorations. My husband loved his BBQ sandwich and my hamburger was extremely good. It was a bit of a stretch calling it waterfront dining though. It was just on... More

My wife and I had dinner the evening before a recent 5K race. Sharky's featured a runner's special for carb loading, either spaghetti with meat sauce or chicken over pasta...all you can eat. Well, I can eat a lot...and I did. The spaghetti was absolutely delicious (never thought about ordering spaghetti at Sharky's before!). My wife's pasta dish was also... More

Sharky's is a fun place to eat at the beach with lots of different choices. We usually go there for lunch and eat outside so we can enjoy watching the boats on the water.

Great location and excellent patio seating. The food was ok, although, there was no wow factor. I tried some of my sons pizza and it was pretty tasty but the seafood seemed to not be as fresh as expected from a beach restaurant that specializes in seafood. Will try this place again during the season with hopes of a higher... More

I had a pretty good lunch on saturday afternoon december 6 around 2 . I had a seafood platter that definitely filled me up .My waitress was also very attractive and friendly . Which is a plus !!
