I usually enjoy the seafood platter, but this time, the lobster was very burnt to the point of being bitter. This is not the usual standard for this restaurant!

A group of 15 stopped here for a late lunch before heading out for drinks at Margaritaville. If you are looking for a great seafood place on the beach with a true Jamaican vibe, head to Sharkies! Dishes were stacked high with some fine tasting...seafood. Will definitely be back for another round the next time we are on the north coast.More

I wanted to take my husband here as I had a wonderful experience 2 years ago. The environment is very relaxed and friendly. Our waitresses (yes we ended up with 2 (were very friendly. funny and eager to please). Bathrooms are available. We ordered fried...fish and 2 steamed fish in coconut milk. It was absolutely wonderful. The prices are very reasonable. One sits outdoors by the seaside as you await your food. Handicap friendly, as you park and seating is on the same level. There is a good range in mixed drinks and food. Go with an open and relaxed mind, you WILL be satisfied! Thank you so very much for your service. I will be back!! HIGHLY recommended!!More

Samantha is our favorite waitress! Seafood is amazing. You even get to see puppies while you eat. Lunch with an ocean view. Would highly recommend

Everyone was rude especially the woman. We ordered the seafood boil and it was the worst thing ever! The crabs were babies, smaller than my palm. The sausage tasted old and the seasoning they used was horrible. They also sliced the corn into thin pieces...and you’re lucky if you got two slices. I have been wanted to try this place every time i visit Jamaica and I was highly disappointed.More

Very nice spot and pricy. Understand terrific beach as well but was night visit with thirty plus family before many fly home from funeral. They made room for the group, even moving some when rain started to fall. Great service over all but miscommunications over...menu and personally my steak was well not medium so medium rare is my next time order. Lobster was good. Shrimp also. Seafood platter as well. Fries not as good.More

Great place to enjoy fresh seafood while enjoying the views of the ocean. Music was a vibe. The ambience was amazing, especially at night when the giant bonfires take place.

After being told how great this place was, we decided to go give it a try. The service was very poor, the food took forever to show up, when it did it was cold ! You're better off eating elsewhere!

The place is great but the receptionist has an attitude we don’t feel welcome at all. The first time we went here the server is rushing us for the order he took the menu right away and didn’t bother asked what drinks we want.

Loved this restaurant. We stumbled across it on a coastal journey that didn’t go as planned, but we’re made up with the new lunch stop. They epitomise everything you will come to expect of the Jamaican experience, rustic, relatively slow service and pretty similar menus...to most other places, but they nail it with the execution of the dishes and the location. I would recommend the seafood wrap, but everyone in our party enjoyed their food. Lovely beach and well worth the trip.More

Firstly customer service was amazing, with welcoming and attentive staff. As for the atmosphere particularly at night it is beautiful for photos. The meal was delightful, (and a little tip if you're going for the curried fish make sure to ask if the curry chef...is in.) Sonia big up !!!!More

There are non seafood items like wings, jerked chicken, chicken pasta, vegetable and chicken wraps, steak. So there are a few items that don’t involve seafood
