This is one of my Dad's favorite spots so I took him here for an early dinner. This was only my 2nd visit to Sharky's. We got there 4ish and it was pretty busy, but they still had available seating inside and outside. The actual bar itself was hopping. We found a lovely water-front table outside right next to the pier. The views are beautiful and the people watching was fun. We indulged in one of their special drinks 'Miami Vice' and we both thought it was very tasty. We ordered two hot seafood appetizers and they were both delicious and were ample in size. That was enough for my Dad, but my mouth was watering for grouper so I ordered a dinner with the smaller grouper filet (blackened). It was disappointing because it was surprisingly chewy/overdone. They seemed to have servers that were extremely busy, and others standing around; our server was taking care of tables on two sides of the restaurant, so our service was a bit slower than we would have liked. A manager must have noticed because we then had a male server about half-way through our meal. I would definitely recommend for the view, beachy atmosphere, appetizers and drinks. They do win awards for their seafood & service.
