About
real food * from scratch We believe that great food and healthful ingredients are not mutually exclusive of each other. We buy organic produce from local farmers and seafood from the commercial fishing harbor right outside our restaurant. We feature all natural products - steering clear of preservatives and antibiotics. Whole grains and whole foods are used in the preparation of our menu - which our chefs write twice daily, based on what's fresh, available and delicious. Fresh. Local. Organic. Taste the difference.

Fantastic seafood. Menu changes daily with what comes in with fishing vessels. They buy it right on the dock next door. Great for kids too.

I can't be certain, but I've visited The Shark on the Harbor throughout much of the year. I know they're open in the "off season". Whenever that is. Ciao
