An Ocean Isle Tradition

We have been coming to Ocean Isle for 40 years. Seems like we always have been going to Sharky's. Best pizza and burgers and marguritas on the island. Crowded in season, but great bar inside and outside.

Food is wonderful, staff is friendly, beer is a little warm for my taste, but a decent selection, bottle only no tap. Try the Shak Stack sandwich.

We came to this area, Ocean Isle Beach, on a cold winter day. We were hungry, and most everything was closed. Luckily, we ran across this amazing place! The service was great, the view of the ocean was great, and my food and drink were great! They even had a guitar player. I had the seafood platter and had to... More

I went looking at a used boat in January and not much is open in this small beach town but Sharky's was! I enjoyed a fresh tuna for $19 which was good and bountiful with rice and veggies topped off by a $3 beer. My wife had the $19 seafood platter which will also provide a lunch for both of... More

My family and I went to Sharky's to celebrate a birthday. It's a favorite of my siblings, but I had never tried it... and all I can say is WOW. The decor and atmosphere is wonderfully ocean themed! Rumor has it the Silver Surfer statue is actually from the set of the Fantastic Four movie. The staff was charming and... More

Overall it was an enjoyable experience, very friendly waitress and the food was good. If you want to follow you favorite sports team or golfer while eating, this is the place for you. It's very much a traditional beach restaurant, and has a nice bar area. This not a place for "fine dinning" but if you're looking for a good... More
