My wife and I stopped by for lunch. We were sat quickly at a table outside where we could see the beach, which was nice. The service was good and the food was pretty good. However, I would never return here because they have the...irritating timeshare people at the entrance that hassle you when you leave. This ruined every positive that we had here, I avoid places that have these timeshare people irrtiating you....I wouldnt have even stopped here to begin with had I known they had that there.More

regular selection, hard to get in, burgers fries - food ok. the outside deck is good but the wind blows your food drinks napkins everywhere. Best to eat inside without a view. If no wind - eat outside.

While this restaurant has good food, I rated them so low because they add an additional % for extra profit on the bill. This seems very unethical, as it’s not obvious when you order that this will be tacked on. We used to frequent this...place 3-4 times per year, but this will be our last visit, as there are many other restaurants to choose from in the area that do not add this to the bill. Sharkey’s, if you want extra profit then just add it to each item, so it’s upfront to your customer instead of hiding it until the end. Not a very good business practice.More

Beautiful outside seating. Great variety of dishes on the menu. There were four of us and each one was scrumptious. Our waitress could not have been better! Don't miss this restaurant!

After our dolphin boat tour stopped here for lunch....it was 11:30 and lucky that we got a gulfside table. Waitress was prompt and friendly. 5 ladies on a girls trip we tried the gator bites. Good. Although lunch time lunch menu on their website was...not available. A number of us had the shrimp dinner which was tasty and the grouper sandwich...also good. We sat under the covered patio, but there is a large outside deck with umbrellas and a large tiki cover over the bar area. Very airy and "beachy" all around. Suitable for families, friends or casual dining/drinks. Good experience overall... would recommend.More

Loved this place. Went probably 5-6 times during my week stay in PCB. You can buy a cup for 15.00 full of your favorite beverage and bring it back anytime and refill for 11.00. It’s right on the beach. Excellent food. Had a great 80s...band on Friday night. Loved it!More

Major party atmosphere, people dining & tKing shots. Massive number of people & staff scurrying everywhere. My garlic shrimp was okay, not anything memorable. Wait time is slow & especially so waiting for the check.

We had the fried shrimp and coconut shrimp for dinner. Both were excellent. Service was great and we got our food fast. A very nice experience.

We enjoyed sitting outside and had a nice view of the beach. The service was very good and the atmosphere is fun. We both had seafood dinners and it was just average. You are paying for being on the beach.

Great place literally right in the beach. Food was absolutely great. We had grilled fish both times and quality was right in point. Malory was our waitress both times and we could not have asked for a better person to take care of us. Her...suggestion of the smoked tuna dip was amazing!! She really made our experience even better!!!More

Outdoor seating was lovely. There were jet ski races going on during our lunch. Nachos were huge and very tasty! Shrimp and bread sticks were great. Both entrees were piping hot and delicious! Service was excellent!

Me- Grouper. was fine Son- buffalo chicken- freezer chicken nugget level. pitiful. he even said "i can make this at home." Daughter- chicken pasta, no complaints. Wife- el diablo shrimp. at least 1 was completely undercooked, grey, and soft. server showed token concern. knocked only...that item off ticket. i am thinking, if she gets violently il, or worse, i am suing you. thankfully she didn't swallow it. absolutely embarrassing. they obvi seasoned before completely cooking and assumed it was cooked. lazy, unprofessional, and dangerous. serving undercooked seafood could be manslaughter. no i am not kidding. for shame Sharkys. the live music is mediocre at best. a guy who plays acoustic guitar at ear splitting volume. just use an electric bro. and don't sing.More

Atmosphere fun, and good for kids. They had some dude twisting up balloons. Also had live music too, and the view of the beach was great. But the food is just not good. Maybe it's just what I got - the crabcakes, but I tried...daughter's chicken and it was okay at best. Fried pickles nothing special, and neither were the oysters. Staff really nice and friendly though, but they must invest in better ingredients, or recipes, or chefs.More
