This place is so much fun. Their drinks are delicious, the view is spectacular, and the food is delicious too. My family loves to go here to take in what we're in Florida for, beach, sun, and fun.

I was really craving a good grouper sandwich (comparable to Frenchies on Clearwater Beach) and wanted that west coast sunset and vibe. Sadly the best part of Sharky’s was the 30 minute wait for dinner on the pier. We were seated outside at our request...More

We came for a late lunch about 3pm and enjoyed sitting outside under roof with lots of fans and still were able to view the beach and waves. Great service and great food.

Directly on the beach with birds, wind, and sunset. Onion rings were large and tended not to pull out after a bite. Could taste the crab in crab stuffed mushrooms. No sand in the brown cream clam chowder with a small amount of clams. The...More

Great view of the Gulf of Mexico. Parking and seating difficult. Drinks a little pricey. Staff to busy to be friendly. Food so so.

There is a bait shop half way out the pier. I did not fish but I would recommend to check with them - it seems they would fix you up.
