A family favorite

We always visit Sharky's when we vacation in OIB. It's fun and the food is great. It's very popular. So be prepared to wait for a table, but it is worth it. Seafood dishes are good but we go for the pizza.

We had a large group of 14, including 6 children and arrived early, around 5:00. The restaurant filled up quickly after that. Our server was excellent and paid attention to everyone's wants and needs. The children were able to go downstairs and play in a large sand area, where they dug and found shark teeth while we waited for our... More

Lack luster to say the best. I've heard a lot of good things about this place so I'm very disappointed. The food was average, over priced. The bathrooms were very gross and the hostesses were unfriendly. I wouldn't go back. :(

Nice waitress. Sat on the water. The food was just OK. The fish tacos were fairly bland and the grouper bites were light on the actual fish. Would try something else next time.

Sharky's has excellent food. If you don't mind eating outside, it's a nice place to dine while enjoying a nice view of the intercostal waterway.

If your air conditioner isn't working, you should notify us before we put our name in and wait an hour. Then the hostess gives us an attitude? We only stayed because we were meeting friends there. Food was ok. Only bottled beer. Average at best.

Came here twice in a week. Second time was pizza carryout. Blackened grouper sandwich was very good and shrimp was good also. The speciality pizzas are very good. The family including 2 kids liked the great white pizza. A nice place if you want to stay home and do pizza. If you're hoping to eat there plan to arrive early... More

We called ahead for a reservation, due to the fact that our party consisted of 13 people. We called early enough to avoid the evening crush. We were informed that we could be seated immediately. Off we went. Well, upon arriving, we were greeted by a young blond haired hostess with a severe case of ATTITUDE! As we filed in,... More
