Sharky's has a great atmosphere and good food! You can't go wrong with this restaurant especially when it has a tiki bar! The food is moderately priced and the place is right on the beach which makes for a great view.

Sharkey's was a treat that a friend gave me for lunch. The service was so great. The menu has wonderful choices. A little on the pricey side but worth it. I have brought my children here. They swim in the water while waiting for their food. There is a children's menu as well which is terrific. It's so pretty to... More

Service was awful, from the greeters at the desk to our server. Disinterested and only there to make up the numbers. Location was great and food was ok. Would not return.

We had Burger and fries at this restaurant at an outside table. The Burger was cooked as asked medium and was very good. It gets very crowed so make reservation for inside seating at least a day before. Menu is good check online. There is also an upscale restaurant next door called Fins we did not eat there. Venice beach... More

Visited Sharkey"s upstairs restaurant Fin twice. We went for the sunset both times . Absolutely a must visit restaurant . We had reservations but preferred to sit at a high top table in the bar. The food and service is excellent. The server did a fantastic job recommending what we said we were in the mood for. Sharkey"s downstairs restaurant... More

Great place but the wait is very long--- we were there at 6:00 PM on a Saturday during off season and the wait was 1 1/2 hours. Luckily, Finns upstairs (more expensive) was ready for immediate seating, so we had dinner there and stopped for drinks at Sharky's afterwards

The place is great! Outdoor and indoor seating for any preference, right on the beach so while you eat kids can play happily in the sand and everyone can enjoy the beach after the meal. The decor is the perfect seafood shack style but clearly not a shack, with a great indoors seating area and even a merchandise shop if... More

I've always wanted to try this place and finally did today after a day at the beach. This is a somewhat high end restaurant so don't be surprised by the high prices on the menu. Having said that - it's totally worth it! I had a New York strip steak that was delicious and it came with grilled and smoked... More

We went here for lunch on a Tuesday, and there was no wait at all. You have the option of eating inside or outside. We sat inside, but had a great view of the ocean. Our waitress was Angie, and she was super! Atmosphere was great, food was great, service was great. Onion rings and the dill ranch sauce were... More
