“Just terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

My boyfriends been here years ago and we tried it recently. Not good. Completely empty, prices high, inside smelled funny, service was not that great and food was also not that great. I don't know how people have had good experiences here, and how they stay open.

“Simply average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

As new residents in the area we're still trying area restaurants. Our first visit (on January 27) to Sharky's was less than we had hoped.

I had the claims and linguine entree and was very disappointed with the few amount of clams in this dish. They were fresh cans, not canned, which is good. But there were so few that it was far more a simple pasta dish not the classic Linguine con le Vongole. The seared Ahi tuna salad had nice seaweed, but few salad greens. A steak dish was below average.

The service was fine; the setting comfortable. I just wish the kitchen were better than it apparently is.

“average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

we had to wait over 1/2 hour before the table we booked was actually ready, then the drinks orders were a bit messy but once seated the menu looked nice. the waitress told us about the special Sharky's seafood combo, an appetizing butter fish with shrimps and scallops....but came back 15 mins later to tell us that they run out of butter fish and we had now the choice of grouper or salmon.... not impressed and not what we were looking for. then my husband starter was shrimps but they were completely frozen so he sent them back.... and then when he was ready to tuck in his fish entree,he realised it was frozen as well and also had to send it back!!!
overall experience was not bad though and food, when not frozen,was good enough but I think you can find much better on the island !

Thank you for visiting Sharky's and We appriciate You taking the time to write a review unfortunately We can not appreciate Your misstatements about the shrimp "complitly frozen "and specialy the fish that was purchesed FRESH Prepared FRESH and it was never Frozen if You meant slightly undercooked ,perhaps -but Never FROZEN!
