We went right at 11:00 on a very windy morning so it wasn't very busy. Don't get me wrong, the server was friendly enough and the hostess was nice. Food was good but nothing special so i would say it was average. I guess the reason it gets an average instead of a good was due to the high prices... More

I stopped for lunch and sat at the outside bar. Ok draft beer selection. Sandwiches on lunch menu on the more expensive side. View of Gulf very nice. Again - not bad but nothing spectacular

The first time we were there they had a happy hour....the next time we went they weren't sure they had a happy hour so had to pay regular price. The 3rd time we went with friends and the same was true. The food was nothing special. The only nice thing is that it is right on the beach.

Always a long wait to get in, but the parking is free and they give you a golf cart lift to the front door. Beachfront location with nearby playground. Good seafood and outdoor seating! Good family fun with live music and entertainment. We always try to go on a weeknight during Spring Break. Great place to have a drink at... More

Conveniently located on the "strip" near Pier Park, it looked crowded, a popular local restaurant. The food was average with high prices. No apps, no alcohol and 2 mid priced entrees = $76 bill. Atmosphere was nothing special. Would not return.

Sharky's has the best staff and the best atmosphere panama city beach has to offer. Their location is breath taking with the views of the beach, sunset is perfect time to visit. They also have a lovely playground on the beach perfect for kids to play while you wait for your table.
