Great food, easy laid back atmosphere, local spot. We went here twice in our short visit to the keys, the calamari is amazing, other food is great too! Good location on a canal. We brought our catch in and they cooked it 2 styles for...us and it was delicious! Great service. Fun place to sit with a drink and chill!More

The food is off the charts . If you like steak the churrasco steak is unbelievable. The Brussels sprouts. The fish tacos . Fresh and delicious. And they’re super reasonable. The ladies there Lucy and Joyce make all the difference. It was our first stop...and our last out . Absolutely recommendMore

I am not much of a drinker, but this place has a collection of some of the nicest beers in the keys. I have tried all of their fish plates and burgers on their menu and cannot decide on a favorite. As a default, you...can always go with the Sharkey's burger, you just cannot go wrong!More

We arrived on Key Largo at lunchtime and before we could check in to our hotel, so went here for lunch. The food was excellent - as was the quality of beer choices! Liked it so much, we returned later in the evening where. Guitarist...was playing. A lively place with good views of the marina. Not suitable for young kids at night but our older teenagers enjoyed it. Will definitely go again.More

Eating dinner here was the worst experience we had on our Key Largo trip. The ambience was weird and a bit unwelcoming. Our server seemed annoyed that we came in at first but then she warmed up some. The food I ordered was awful --...the Sharky Bowl. I am NOT a picky eater but this meal tastes terrible and belongs on no menu. My drink barely had liquor in it. Visiting here was just a major bummer and would not recommend it to anyone.More

Sharkeys is unpretentious, but the food is outstanding, and the prices are reasonable. We went to dinner on Wednesday and our waitress Dawn was very courteous and attentive. She also told us about their excellent breakfasts and we went back on Thursday to try it....Wow, our eye opener breakfast was outstanding, the potatoes were delicious and our waitress Carolyn was also very courteous and attentive. We highly recommend Sharkey's for a pleasant dining experience.More

Confusing seating arrangements, as you were supposed to seat yourself and there is the choice of this smelly Pub downstairs with no tables set up for eating, a nice outside area on a canal that was out in the full mid-day sun, or inside upstairs....Took us a few minutes to get our bearings with little help from the staff. Tables weren't being kept real clean upstairs so we only had one choice out of three "empty" tables. We got their specials, which were tasty, but server woman completely ignored us. Tried to ask a question of a manager type who was sitting behind us doing accounting at one of the tables and he was super rude. One of our worst dining experiences in the Keys. Would not recommend for lunch. Perhaps its better for dinner?More

The Upstairs restaurant is still good. The pub downstairs has gone to crap. In 30+ years going here I’ve seen a precipitous decline. The facility inside is filthy. For years this was the hangout for locals, particularly from the service industry. Sadly, now it is...a hangout for the Latino pimps and their stable of hookers. Service at the bar was terrible. The male bartender was more interested in BS-ing with his friends, while the female bartender was busting her butt carrying the load for him. So sad to see the decline.More

Our last night on the Island and we were searching for basic bar food. Sharkey’s was a fun looking place, with two levels. We sat upstairs, had good service, good music to listen to. We split an order of wings and a cheeseburger. The wings...were very juicy and the Cajun dry rub was good and plentiful (which is hard to do on a dry rub). The burger was tasty, and the fries good as well. There is a downstairs area which seems to be the place to hang out with cornhole games, etc. Nothing bad to say about this place, and we will return, but probably sit on the ground level next time.More

We were staying at the Holiday Inn in Key Largo for a dive trip with Sea Dwellers. Our instructor had suggested Sharkey’s, so we gave it a shot the first night. We liked the mahi fingers so much, we ordered another plate. The vibe and...the service was good. The portions were great for the prices. We tried a number of places while on holiday and ended up at Sharkey’s three times for a total of five orders of mahi fingers. This is the place you want to be! The music was great, whether it was radio or live, and it was a good crowd. We were disappointed that they didn’t have awesome T-shirts to sell us!More

Enjoyed a nice family dinner here along the docks with a view of the sunset. Delicious vegetarian bowl available for our meal-the plantains we’re a nice touch to it. Friendly, fast service. An easy walk from either the Courtyard by Marriott or Holiday Inn along...the docks.More

Good - the food quality was decent for a divey restaurant - good view of the water and boats passing by if sitting outside The Terrible - our server Carolyn was forgetful, unprofessional, and just plain incompetent - she messed up two parties' orders and...forced us to pay for someone else's food, despite several attempts asking her to give us the right bill _ we spent as much time or maybe even longer trying to deal with the bill issue, which was never correctly resolved, as we spent ordering and eating lunch! We come to the Keys fairly often as we live in Florida. We ordered drinks and lunch, and after fairly minimal issues (marginally slow service and the waitress forgetting to bring the drink menu despite asking twice), were ready to pay and leave, so we asked for the bill. Carolyn said she would be right back with it. 15 minutes later, she came by and asked her if we were done, so we asked for the bill again and waited another 10 min. When it came, it was clearly the wrong party's bill, and when we politely let her know, her response was "Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'll be back". A few minutes later, she came back and explained that she had put the wrong items on our bill and someone else's but they had already paid and left so she was left with this. We said fine but asked her to correct it, as the other party was a party of 3, while we were only 2, so didn't feel it was appropriate to pay extra. She went away and a few minutes later, said the exact same thing, no apology nor change in her attitude. At this point, we should have asked for the manager to resolve it, but she went away one more time and came back and put the same bill on our table. We paid the minimum on the bill, which clearly said it was for a party of 2, with three meals on it, and left. Of course, we don't understand why she: - failed to apologize for the mess-up - didn't fix the issue (we suspect it's because she didn't know what was ordered) - kept going back and forth with no change, wasting at least 40 minutes after we had initially asked for the bill - couldn't be professional and courteous instead of giving us attitude as if it were our fault the error happened This is a terrible way to handle a mistake. All she needed to do was get the correct items on our bill and we would have paid it and given her a tip, but this experience has left us disgruntled, and we cannot recommend it to anyone. Go to Keysbite, Catch, or somewhere where they apologize for any mistakes and treat the customer with genuine care.More
