“The Plain Truth about Sharky's Cantina”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Very tight space with a loud atmosphere. More of a tourist hangout than a locals hangout. Margarita's were good and the pulled pork spicy quesadilla's are a must to try. Don't worry, they are not too spicy:)

Hi and thanks for the great review...I just wanted to add that we are open 364 days a year and we are in fact filled with locals most of the year...obviously for Holidays and July and August it shifts the other way, but we open 13 hours a day everyday of the year (Except we close one day for a staff party) so that we can serve the local community on MV. Thanks!!

“Very pricey AND its not that great.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

When my family goes we usually get a variety of chicken wings and a platter of french fries. Sometimes its really good but sometimes the chicken is dried out and you can tell that it has been sitting and just reheated. It can also be really expensive when you order burritos and tacos.

“Best friends' favorite MV dining spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Sharky's is not my kind of place, but we went with good friends and deciding what the heck. Really enjoyed ourselves. The value of the very fresh and well prepared Mexican food has got to be the best on the island. They love the sangria. I enjoyed a cold beer. The place was a kick! Got to be the restaurant to hit on a hot evening when you are too tired to cook and don't want to spend a lot. The staff is fun and efficient and the vibe of the place is very up beat.

“A great night out.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Sharky's may not be the greatest pub in the land but it's open real late, they serve very good beer, and the staff are really friendly. I did not eat there. The bathrooms are next door but then that seems rather common in Martha's Vineyard.
