Outstanding Food and Service

My wife and I were lucky enough to eat at Sharks on Valentine's Day. The food was tremendous. Karen does a great job running the front of the house basically by herself. She manages to make sure everyone is enjoying themselves and the food, no matter how busy they are. Chef Corky works magic... read more

We loved sitting up at the bar watching all the food being prepared -the marinara is homemade and apparently has 31 ingredients including 3 kinds of tomatoes! - Everything was freshly prepared - we felt very welcomed into the restaurant. and were put at ease. It's not a large operation, but so genuine and personable. The Cioppino was tasty, hot... More

Whenever I am on the Oregon Coast I make a point of stopping at Sharks in Newport. I can always count on a delicious meal with exceptionally fresh seafood. Great wine and beer selection too. The atmosphere is so pleasant. A tiny place well worth visiting.

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
