Disappointed

Every year we visit PEI and every year we head to Sharky's - usually more than once in a week. But this time was a big let down.It was closed on Labour Day which was understandable (with no information available by phone either) - most other restuarants seemed to have shut down too.

We ate here twice! Good fresh seafood on the harbor. Was a little hectic the first time at lunch on the deck outside. The winds kept shifting and the clouds moving as we waited for quite a while for our food. Lobster rolls were great. A good basic place to eat.

If not the best, close to it. My wife and I visit Summerside every year and our first stop is Sharkey's. It has some of the best fried clams ever - any place. I had the fish and chips today and it was very good. We had the muscles and they too were sweet and delicious. My wife had the... More

Casual place with a nice waterfront patio in a great location. I had a very good lobster roll and a cold draught. Quite reasonably priced. Perfect spot for lunch in Summerside.

Stopped into Sharky's take-out window while in Summerside for some fried clams. These are without a doubt the best fried clams I've ever had. They were crispy and not the least bit greasy. A really nice sized portion for about $11. Great price. It was so good, we went back the next day for more.

Good Food on water front. We had the best beef, lobster, sausage burger here. They have a good selection on the menu and medium prices. Service was good and friendly. The restaurant looks like it caters to weddings and other formals.

I wanted to like this place and usually don;t comment on things I don;t like`. This meal was boring and bland. The salmon burger was a frozen patty that even the tartar sauce couldn`t save. We assumed since we were on the water on an island known for great fish that the burger would be-well you know not frozen I... More

It was our first night on the island and we were so excited to try the food! This place was a huge let down. I ordered the scallop burger and a side of coleslaw and a small bowl of clam chowder. The scallop burger came on a crappy hamburger bun. There were five scallops that were pretty small but they... More

We were recommended to this place as a good place for a local lobster supper. We were surprised to show up on a Sunday afternoon (July 5) and find it closed both on both Sunday and Monday. Also noticed a for sale sign that may be affecting operation.

The seafood is frozen and not fresh, the shrimp still has the tails, the 'scallops' are fake, and the fish is tasteless and straight from a bag. Even the portions are scant. The drinks arrived without glasses, I found TWO hairs in my food and I killed an ant in the bathroom. We *assumed* they'd have fresh seafood since they're... More
