You must try the pulled chicken Caesar salad. It was so good we went there twice for dinner. Also, the Bloody Mary's were pretty good too!

In our one night at the end of season we chose this place to eat. Mexican is my favourite and fella isn't keen on fish (which is the main food on the Island). Service was prompt and efficient. Steve was our waiter. Very friendly and had the 'upselling' down to a fine art.  Food very nice. We had the homemade... More

We ate at Sharkys this weekend. Martha's Vineyard is generally busy so I guess you can't pick at service too much, but it wasn't great. We had to ask server 3 times for silverware. Food was okay, kind of like Moes, not better. But again it was busy and we weren't expecting 5 star dinning. I don't think I would... More

We heard the Margaritas were delicious, so we stopped in. They are! We also tried their nachos, which were amazing.

This place suffers from not having a lovely view like those available in some of the harbour-side restaurants in Oak Bluffs. But, the menu offers a welcome change from the standard fare available at most of these places. We shared nachos and a burrito between two of us and couldn't finish either, despite them being pretty good. I enjoyed playing... More

Thinking fish on an island surrounded by water, but this is a Mexican place. Great portions & fresh & delicious food. I enjoyed the enchiladas , grilled veggies, & pulled chicken quesadilla . Delicious !!

Had a great lunch with friends complete with Mexican Bulldogs! Great service, great food and tons of fun! Located right in the middle of town with easy access and fun staff! Highly recommend the fish tacos! The cod was delish! Fun place! A great find!

This restaurant has it all: inedible food, slow, inattentive service, ridiculous prices, and it is musty and smelly inside. Welcome to Sharky's.

I imagine this is popular for the 21-30 crowd and it caters directly to that genre. Plenty of margarita choices, although the "skinny Rita" is a great choice if you're not into too sweet mixes. They did have a decent guacamole and didn't charge for extra chips and unlike many so-called Mexican places, they actually knew what Mezcal is and... More
