Food tasted good but wasn't served hot. But was ok. Price was reasonable and environment was cool and nice. Will be returning for hot food next time. The wait is a bit lengthy so the food should be served hot. Great place overall. Cocktails need...garnish such as cherries, etc. Please take noteMore

After our recent trip to Jamaica and an excursion to Dunns River Falls our driver Ricardo recommended Sharkies. The previous day he recommended Scotchies and that was our best meal of the trip until Scotchies. It’s right on the beach, we had full fish 1.5lb...of snapper in a brown sauce, and we also had a seafood platter. We finished everything and our kids loved their kids meals. Great food, mainly seafood. The view is great as it sits right on the beach, plenty of locals here, and some local animals (dogs/cats). Only downside was that they were extremely busy and the food took awhile, but our waitress told us this up front right when we sat down. I appreciate her letting us know, and the kids just played on the beach so we were in no hurry. If you are nearby and have some extra time it’s well worth the wait!More

We came to the restaurant to order food to take home because our daughters wanted seafood. We ordered $150 usd worth of food and were told the wait would be 30 minutes. The wait was an hour long. And as we waited we watched customer...after customer, those dining in and always those waiting to take their food, complaining about the wait. The whole made to order claim as an excuse for the wait is BS. When we got home we were so upset with the food and how it tasted but we had to eat because we were STARVING! The calamari was not calamari. It was this rancid over cooked crisp batter with nasty strawberry jam in it! What???? And the festival was the hardest and tiniest I’ve had on the entire north coast! We live 5 minutes from the spot.. all of the food was COLD by the time we arrived home. The rice and peas, the shrimp, everything! The lobster I ordered was SOOOOOO salty it burned my mouth as I ate it! The nanny tasted good but was a SUPER greasy. I am the last person to leave a negative review but I had to write this one because this being my third time here I won’t ever be back.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
