They have the best steamed seafood here! It is not cheap but all the seafood is so fresh so it is worth it. Get the Gumbo, it is fantastic!. Everything is good here.

One thing's certain, when I'm on the Oregon Coast... I'm on the hunt for fresh oysters. Not that I'm a raw oyster fan, but a steamed or pan-fried version of this interesting and under appreciated shellfish is probably on my all time fave list. In light of my recent excursion to Newport, I looked for a place to satisfy my... More

Hands down the best seafood restaurant I've been to in Oregon. The cioppino with pasta is insanely good and the staff is amazing in a quirky kind of way. The area is full of tourist traps, but Sharks is a diamond in the rough.

My husband and I were looking for a great place to have seafood. The reviews were so amazing we had to try it. When we arrived we discovered that the place is so small that you have to wait outside for your table. No big deal... if it is not raining. There were only maybe 3 or 4 regular tables... More

We went here for dinner two times during our three days in Newport. I can't say enough good things about the food and service. The venue is small, so we sat at the bar both times but it was worth it to see our food and drinks prepared right in front of us. Both times we visited all of our... More

Sit at the bar and visit with the owners and watch your food being prepared... all the food is prepped as you order it... so it is incredibly fresh... then steamed for Newport's healthiest great food!.... You'd think you were eating on a submarine with the steam... no fire... just steam! Oh... and the sourdough bread and fresh butter is... More

We happened to stumble onto Sharks when we were looking for a restaurant in Newport. We had decided to drive to the old wharf area to eat and the only parking space we could find was right in front of Sharks. We checked trip advisor and found it to be highly rated. The food was fabulous and fresh. I had... More

We were visiting Newport for a few days, and Sharks was recommended to us. Very small place with great food. The service was friendly even though they were very busy. Lots of great seafood choice on the menu, definitely recommended.

We arrived around 5 and the place was packed already. The aroma coming from the kitchen sold us on this place. The food and wait staff did not disappoint. We had steamed clams and the cioppino super bowl to split. The green salad we ordered was fresh with house made dressing. I loved the fact that nothing was fried or... More
