Not impressed with freshness or quality of food. The meals were reasonably priced but there is nothing special about the food at all. Want a crappy sour mix maragrita? This is your place.

I like the places that are open all year round. We used to support Sharky's in that sense. The price is to attract the locals with the simple meal price tags. But, in the middle of the winter season, their rice that came with my meal was dried and rock-hard, one wrong first bite of the hard rice chipped my... More

Hi- I'm having trouble understanding this review...our rice is obviously made in house many times a day and every staff member knows that of course and walks by the rice makers often...there could be no confusion. We sell hundred of thousand of portions a year with no issue...rice is the #1 item sold and if we had an issue like... More

With a name like sharky's cantina you would expect lots of sharks (check!) and good margaritas. The bartender was inviting but the margarita fell short. And they didn't have any t-shirts You have to go to another location to buy a Tshirt. Bathroom is around back w secret code. We didn't order any food but portions we saw others eating... More

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 !!

Thank vicki f
