we always come here when in Newport..and always order the crab dinner..a generous portion of fresh steamed loose crab meat, served with garlic butter for dipping, a huge portion of salad (their homemade thousand island is really good!) , fresh steamed veges and fruit. The owners are friendly and fun..it's a quirky place, a little "old school", but solid good... More

Wow! Karon(sp) really made our birthday dinner special. But the magic really came from the Chef du jour Cornelio (sp). I've only had the cream of the crop Cioppino from Phil's fish market in Moss Landing so the bar was high. This Cioppino was more marinara like broth, but fresher seafood by far! You can even buy their Cioppino sauce... More

Let's cut to the chase: The Cioppino is both the central reason to eat at Sharks as well as a superb dish. We ordered several other items and, while good, these did not come close to matching the rich, flavorful cioppino. While other items have great ingredients, particularly the fresh fish/shellfish/shrimp.etc, the recipes are not particularly exciting. Steamed clams were... More

The food is worth 4.5 stars; it is really good, but we got soaked by ordering a "supreme" cioppino that wasn't listed on the menu. The regular cioppino is $14.95, a "superbowl" of the same is $20.95, so we figured the "supreme" which added some shelfish would be in the $25- $30 range. WRONG! It was really $pecial I guess....

zesty pasta cioppino, as flavorful as any in Newport! We loved it! Steamer clams, amazing! Full bar. Gluten friendly place. We are here on an off-night (Wednesday) and the food still rocks! Small venue on the bay front.

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
