If you are in the mood for some delicious prime rib then Sharky’s is the place to go. I ordered an appetizer of Escargot, which I love, and they were unexpectedly yummy. Michelle our server/bartender was a delight and she rightfully suggested the prime rib...as a menu favorite. I had a little insider information so I knew she was pointing me in the right direction. My prime rib dinner prepared medium rare was spectacular and so tender that a knife was almost unnecessary. The generous portion was not wasted as I ate it with fried eggs for breakfast the next morning. Thank Michelle for a great time and Sharky’s for a wonderful prime rib dinner.More

About two weeks ago, I got a gift certificate, and ordered food carryout from online pricing, the food, mediocre the fish was tasteless, as well as the potato, had a bland taste for the price. The hamburger was not that bad, but had better at...fast food places. A few weeks later, I order offline again, and the price for a hamburger went up from the online price of 8.95 to 12.95! They did not honor the online price, which I showed it to them, instead they honored their newly made menu price! Sad, BAD customer service and food. So, I refused to pay the newly overpricing, and not honoring the price I paid two weeks ago for the same hamburger! Poor customer service to a neighbor on the island- sad experience!!!More

We have always had a great meal at Sharky's. We arrived to the island late one night, about 10 years ago, probably 20 minutes before closing and they were happy to serve us with a fantastic late night meal. We still eat at Sharky's with...every visit to Anna Maria Island. We recently stopped in over Memorial Day Weekend and had a wonderful meal. Steak, chicken, seafood and pasta has always been delicious! We will be back!More

Tonight’s theme: all our seafood needed more seasoning. All three our fish entrees were kind of dry. All sauces were good and the service was friendly. The overall feel of the place is pretty dated and kind of disjointed. Old antique feeling next to fish...mounts and a few super random things hanging on the walls. I can get past the way it looks if they just work on the food a bit. The location is convenient right next to quite a few hotels and beach hotelsMore

There is nothing not to like about Sharky's... except we wish it were open for lunch! Right across from beach access, Sharky's feels like a classic Italian steakhouse with a relaxed vibe that suits the island perfectly. Nothing on the menu disappoints. Check it out!

The unexpectedly best meal we had while visiting AMI. I must say, many of the beach front restaurants are incredibly overrated. That is absolutely not the case here. Sharky’s was completely amazing. We had a group of 7 and had a few of the fish...special, prime rib, and filet. All the dishes were beautifully prepared and tasted even better. Many of the people said it was the best fish dishes they ever had. I wish I remembered our servers name because she was also fantastic.More

The macadamian-encrusted red snapper is the best fish dish I've ever had, and I've had a lot over my 69 years. The food in general is quite good, but this dish really knocked us out! Can't wait to go back.

The specialty dishes and crab Louie were amazing. Their sauces on the fish fillets were exotic and delicious as was the sauce on the steamed mussels.

Not sure why there was a gap in reviews. Our first time to this area and first time to Sharky's but I can tell you that the prime rib was first rate and the service very good.
