I purchased a certificate for Sharks on Restaurant.com because we pass by it when we visit my daughter in Dubuque and all the reviews said they have awesome ribs. My husband loves BBQ ribs, so I bribed him into riding 2.5 hours (each way) with...More

Good burger. Great sauces. Excellent wings. Good service. Lots to look at and take photos of. So why only 4 stars ? It's a wee bit expensive for what it is -apart from that a great lunch

Order takeout - simple order: baby back ribs, fried chicken, coleslaw, baked beans, and cornbread. Unfortunately sharks couldn't get the order straight - we did not get the coleslaw or the cornbread. Things happen though, right? If the food is great everything is balanced out....More

Whilst on a girls trip to Galena we wanted a place near to our hotel where we could get a bite to eat and a drink and we stumbled upon the Shark`s roadhouse in Elizabeth, Illinois. And all I can say is that we had...More

The ribs were so tough, that I could barely get them off the bone! I was very disappointed with how slow the service was, given the fact they weren't even busy. Seems like they mainly cater to bikers and locals. I wouldn't even bother going...More
