I love coming here to eat when they have the Wing, Pizza and Taco buffet. It is always on Sundays and Wednesdays. I love also enjoy coming on days when they don't have specials and eating the Crabby Patty burger. It is super yummy.

I'm upset it took me so long to find this place! I got a Hawaiian burger (pineapple, teriyaki, and cheese YUM) and my dad got a mushroom Swiss burger that he raved about. Both burgers were seasoned well and cooked perfectly. I will definitely be coming back here with my friends more often! So good.

When I was a local, Sharkey's did not occupy the space it presently does. It was located next door to Woody's, which was on the corner of Main. That noted, in visiting Sharkey's recently, I see that it's more of a "restaurant" now, whereas it was almost exclusively a bar in my day. That said, it was one of my... More

Living in a college town usually means that your options for restaurants is mainly bar food. Sharkey's is a bit different. At lunch, they have a salad bar that comes with baked potato, 4 different kinds of soups and chili, as well as breadsticks and dessert. All for a very low price. The deck seating in the back is awesome... More

Our bartender, Grayson, was very fast, handled multiple orders at one time, and seems to enjoy making people happy while he is working. Overall, his drinks, shots and beers he poured were very satisfying! Whenever you come to Sharkey's, ask for him by name. You won't be disappointed!

The food was tasty for typical bar food but the service was very slow. We were there during a tech football game so a large group of people all got to the restaurant at the same time and all ordered at once and slammed the kitchen with orders. The manager came out to apologize and the food came out shortly... More

This is a great watering hole, especially late at night. Always a bit crowded, and always a bit noisy, but the drink specials make you ignore all that :-)

If you are looking for a dive to drink beer and watch a game, it might be fine. But, not a good place to enjoy food and it smells like a frat house after a triple kegger. Our salad was wilted and tasteless, the good took forever to come out even though they weren't busy. Our server didn't seem to... More

It's a bar, with bar food. But their beer selection was outstanding, and they had some local choices. Huge portions of food and the service was great.

We totally enjoyed our burgers; they were tasty and cooked according to our requests. We shared two different sides - the sweet potato fries and fried onion rings - both were very good. The is a good variety of beers on tap, many of which are local. Our server was attentive but the kitchen was slow; we were there at... More
