We had a great lunch with a view. Started with the lobster artichoke dip. Then great clam chowder. My daughter had the blackened grouper sandwich. I had the shrimp and chips and my granddaughter had the kids shrimp. Best bargain and what a view

This was a great place for an evening meal. We even went back a second night to watch the sunset over the ocean. Very efficient service and moderately priced. They specialize in seafood but there are plenty of non-seafood meals if you don't like seafood. Make reservations if you want to sit outside or if it is the evening and... More

Very casual dinner on the water in the open air. The service was excellent and all 5 of us enjoyed our dinners. Good value for the dollar. They also have an air conditioned restaurant that is more upscale and that appeared to be packed as well.

Went to Venice beach to search for shark teeth then enjoyed the sunset and dinner at Sharky's. My husband and I shared 2 meals. The hogfish special which was absolutely amazing and the BLT salad with grilled gulf shrimp which was less than desirable! The homemade key lime pie totally made up for the shrimp salad though! It was light,... More
