We first tasted Shark's food in 1998 and have been coming back every time we come to the beach ever since. The cioppino is perfect, fresh seafood and the most fantastic broth ever Corky and Karin know how to make you feel at home even though you might make it there just once or twice a year. Don't miss this... More

We love funky, high quality places to eat and Sharks is just that. Only 4 tables and the counter bar to eat at...we had to wait, yes worth it. Wonderful if you want a high quality fresh fresh dinner that u will remember. Service can be slow if busy...server was solo but amazing. Recommend for foodies...maybe not kids tho

I had one of the best bowls of cioppino ever. Looks like a real hole in the wall along Bay Blvd. with the exception of the new 3-D Great White shark sign out front, but do not let that fool you. The owners are the operators and care about their customers and the product they serve. Full Bar and fresh... More

We came here to eat because of tripadvisor but when we walked up to the restaurant, we were doubtful. The restaurant is small, dark and is overly decorated with old, dusty sea themed items. But beyond all this, we would definitely come back to eat of ever in Newport again. I ordered the curry and it was DELICIOUS! Most people... More

We love this little place because it serves the freshest seafood anywhere. Very good menu, delicious food, nice full bar, excellent service, and good prices. Nothing fried. Very friendly owners. Can't beat it... it's THE spot to go for great seafood in a comfortable setting. We'll certainly return and recommend it to others.

We really enjoyed our dinner at sharks! What a great mom and pop restaurant. The cod was so flavorful and the dungeons crab was amazing. They didn't have a high chair but accommodated us with a booster and brought out a few sea animal toys to keep our 14 month old entertained. It was a great family meal!

While on Newport we ate at Sharks. I got the steamed mussels and my BF got something he loved. I got the large portion of mussels.... Loved every bite! I don't know if we will ever get back to Newport OR... But we will make it back to Sharks if we do ! Enjoy!

We looked around town and saw plenty of seafood at high prices but I'm pretty sure that none would have come close to the fresh taste that is served at Sharks. The menu is limited but all the best places do that. If you make something great - don't mess it up by adding a ton of things to the... More

My husband chose this restaurant based on menu. There are multiple restaurants in the area. Sharks is small, with only a few tables and some bar seating. We sat at the bar, watching the crew at work. The staff was friendly, and we enjoyed talking to them and other diners around us. The steam pots used to cook the food... More
