Overall the experience was amazing. The food was excellent for all three of us. The best key lime pie we ever had. The little golf cart that buses you to the restaurant from the overfill lot was even fun. The driver was friendly and made you feel like a friend. The sun had already set when we arrived for dinner... More

Good place for fresh seafood right on the beach. Expect to sit on picnic table seats for a good view. Waitstaff was good. Very limited parking onsite. A lot across the street is adequate but crossing the street is dangerous as there is no crosswalk and cars don't stop for you.

The fish and shrimp tacos are very good. We got a couple of them and watched the sun go down. It was a million dollar view for sure. Fun place to go watch bands and get good food and brews.

Went to Sharky's 2 nights for drinks and late night appetizers while on recent getaway. Ended up purchasing the souvenir Sharky's cup which is refillable on any future visits. Enjoyed the atmosphere and view of beach/sunset. Nice staff and live music nightly.

Sharky's is our first stop when we visit Panama City Beach. They have indoor and outdoor seating, Live music, and great food. Great ocean view with outside seating. Our favorite is the blackened grouper.
