Solid New England inspired menu with some upscale twists, near the Block Island Post office. Casual, excellent fried seafood, steps from Crescent Beach on Corn Neck Road. We enjoy this every summer. No ocean view but it's family friendly. Pleasant outdoor seating but the restaurant offers nice ambience indoors too.

Food was good, nothing out of the ordiary, good or bad, but the wait was very long. Prices were reasonable and the place was brightly lit.

The owner of the inn recommended this place to us and we decided to check it out the other night. My husband and I both had seafood dishes and enjoyed them very much. The lobster pasta had great flavor and hit the spot. It is often hard to find seafood that is not fried and they have a nice broiled... More

Good selection of beer and wine and delicious food. We loved the low key feel of Sharkey's. It's not noisy, nor is it stuffy or snobby. Perfect!

The man (owner?) who seated us was super friendly and actually had us wait a minute because he wanted to spare us from the "boisterous" table of six that was seated in the dining room. The shark bite cocktail was great and my crabcakes were really good. A nice family-owned restaurant!

Although the menu is good here the service is terrible. The hostess was clearly miserable and over worked and didn't want to give us the time of day. Our server was absent minded and too busy talking with her friends to actually serve us. Customer service is key, and this place lacks that entirely. Not to mention we heard a... More

Great food, Love the shark attack drink. Only bummer is that they are not open for lunch when it is located RIGHT by the beach - perfect for lunch. They open at 4 and there is no more sun on the patio there so it is often breezy and shady - no views either. But we like the food and... More

We enjoyed the fish dishes, the wined down wednesday (1/2 off bottle) which I could take back to the inn, thank you. The staff is very nice and our kids enjoyed the chicken tenders and bread with amazing honey walnut butter (need to ask for recipe) and of course the shirley temples. It was very pleasant to sit on the... More

We went on the advice of our cab driver. We all had the lobster quesadilla which was excellent and a great value at $9 for dinner! Sat outside, indoor seating looked nice too. Staff was friendly. My friends enjoyed their martinis!!
