never seen it cooked like this before, and it's excellent

Shark's is a small family operation that uses single-serve steam cookers developed for submarines which, as the chef says, are the perfect "soft" heat for seafood. The resulting flavors and textures are noticeably better than most other restaurant seafood, at least that we've had. We shared a... read more

We have been visiting Newport for decades and somehow have always passed right by this tiny little restaurant. It is easy to miss just as you turn the curve onto the Bay front, but don't pass it by. Sharks is small, but they offer big flavors. We stopped in for the Lemon Grass Curry fish stew and the Gumbo fish... More

We visited this place in Mid May. After spending a few hours in the beautiful coastal town of Newport, we decided to have our lunch at "Sharks", which was mentioned by many of our friends. However, we had to wait for a long time as it opened only at 4.30 PM.There were many others in line waiting for food like... More

I LOVE Shark's, but this visit was the best of all. While their classic is Cioppino may be Shark's classic favorite, we ordered a Curry version. It was amazing! The only downside was that I ordered a Crown Royal whiskey that just didn't go down well with the curry. But, that's no one's fault but my own. The owner is... More

This tiny restaurant consistently puts out great seafood meals. I had the cioppino tonight with a fruit plate on the side. Both were quite good. The place boasts a bubbly and frenetic wait staff of one who in addition provides a full bar service, so at times you might wait a bit, but not overly long. All is accomplished with... More

What look somewhat like a dive from the outside provided our best seafood dinner in Newport. Great service from the wait staff. Two of us had the local specialty of Dungeness crab - it came already shelled and very flavorful. Two of us had just completed the marathon earlier in the day and had the cioppino. With the tender, flavorful... More

Had the opportunity to eat at Sharks. It is a small hole in the wall restaurant, but don't let that scare you off. It is best cioppino I have ever had. The owner cooks your fish stew in front of you, in a very unique steam system. You can have have the cioppino over pasta if that how you like... More

This place was recommended to us by the front desk clerk at Shilo Inn and my boyfriend and I were very impressed! The waitress was lovely, the food delicious, and the view quiet nice. :) On the spendier side, but you absolutely get what you pay for! Walk down around the boardwalk after you enjoy your delicious food at Shark's!
