No regrets ordering the cioppino!

I almost ordered the crab because it was in season, but I opted instead for the house specialty... and found so much seafood in one bowl! It had just the right amount of spice, living up to its reputation, for a darn good price! Highly recommended.

This is the best seafood eatery I have been to in a very long while. They serve only fish dishes and NOTHING is fried. The best place to have a variety of fresh seafood!!!

We returned to Sharks for the umpteenth time. The place is funky, with crabs on the walls and ceiling. There is limited seating. AND the food is great. Cioppino, curry seafood, gumbo are all outstanding. Plus, the bloody mary has a nice heat and a complete daily serving of vegetables.

My wife and I just had one of our best seafood dinners in quite a while. Small restaurant with fish-house atmosphere and the dinner was great. Small venue with an excellent, friendly wait staff. BIG portions of delicious food. We also watched 3-4 other tables who also enjoyed their food - all different items from the menu.

We live here in Newport and decided we wanted to try eating at new restaurants in the area. We went to sharks and being that I am a TripAdvisor addict we decided to give sharks to try. The menu is very expensive we're talking like $40 + a plate and for that kind of money we had higher expectations. We... More

This is a mom & pop (Karen and Cory) restaurant that has been there for many years. On our visit we not only had great food but more importantly had a great time. It is a small restaurant where Cory cooks and Karen serves the customers. The food is made fresh daily and is expertly prepared and served. Because of... More

We ate at the restaurant because the "no fried food" menu seemed interesting and because it had such great reviews. I had the Cioppono. Wow! It was like a bowl full of ketchup. I thought the Cioppino had to be special because they advertise that you can buy the base to go so you can make your own at home.... More

This was one of the best meals we've ever had. We were the last diners to be seated and had personal service from the owners. Going later has its advantages (no line, personal service)!

I would recommend Shark's to anybody! I had the Cioppino and my husband had the seafood stew. Both were simply delicious! This is a very unique place run by a husband (chef) and wife (waitress). It was their anniversary on the day that we ate here. We will definitely be coming back the next time we are in the area!
