And Buffett music pours out of all speakers at Sharky's. Hubs and I have traveled to Ocean Isle Beach almost every year for 30 years. We have never ventured into Sharky's, always judging it as a tourist trap. Nothing could be further from the truth. Sure tourists eat here, but the experience is local. No frills, no fuss, but lots... More

Had a good meal: Great Corn Crab Chowder, Grouper sandwich was perfect. The prices were very high for the type of restaurant and quality of the food. $42 for two people with only one $3 Beer. As we were leaving we saw they had a 94 out of 100 health score. Would have skipped had I known.

Ate lunch at Sharky's.I had the pork BBQ sandwich with no bun and the cole slaw. The BBQ was great. My wife had a burger and she liked it too. The service was very good and the wait was not too long after the order was placed. The place is decorated with surfer style items and interesting signs. We enjoyed... More

Our good friends from Connecticut were visiting for the week and we learned they had never heard of hush puppies, (not the shoes,) which they were curious to try. We checked the local menus on line and saw that Sharky's had them as a side order. The sweet potato fries looked good too. So we decided we would go for... More

Friendly atmosphere, nice view, outside bar, huge quantities of food. Seafood platter can't be best. A nice local's restaurant. Always a crowd. Good food. Will definitely go back.

Very casual and beachy. Fun staff and crowd. Good local seafood specials. Very short wait while we stood looking out on the waterway and listen to great music.

The water view is really nice. The food is just so-so. Pizza looked good. Fish isn't the greatest, although you would hope it would be.

Went there Labor Day weekend. Not too crowded (it was still a little early, around 3pm). Very casual, interesting beach/surf decor. Waitress came right away to take care of our drink orders and get us our menus. I ordered the Grouper Therapy sandwich (I got it grilled) - it was delicious. The fish was grilled perfectly, the steak fries were... More

I went here with my kids and grandkids, we met there at the start of our vacation. The service was excellent. it had a great atmosphere for the location. The kids got crayons to color on the butcher paper on the table, which was great since there were 5 of them. I loved the clams and we got thru take... More
