Average meal with good service. The noise level was very loud. Will try again, hoping the noise level will be lessened.

Typical bar food, we have tried wings, burgers, salads - all very good. Service can be hit or miss - more often it is good than not. Often crowded and loud - a typical sports bar. Prices are out of line for a resort town. I would definitely go back and enjoy the laid back atmosphere.

We came on "Wings Night". Two of us got boneless wings, with onion rings, one got a taco the other a beef and cheese dip sandwich. Everything was very delicious!!!! Portions were big and filling. Variety of dips, sauces, and waitress came to us often to check on us. Worth the trip!

Off out for food and drinks... sharks Den did not disappoint! Amazing food, which was mouth watering even from the description, I fell into a food coma straight away! All waitresses were friendly and ensured you had everything you possibly wanted! Great service and great food would definitely visit again!

After a few trips to Sharks Den, this place has rapidly grown on us. Great place to have a drink and watch sports with numerous screens in a large bar area and even a screen for your table. Lots of variety on the menu and the food is very solid, much better than typical sports bar.

On vacation looking for a good lunch spot...not a sports fan and bars aren't our thing but it was too late for breakfast and they just opened. Atmosphere - all that defines a sports bar.....just glad to see the waitresses are dressed casual and not made to wear "less" (if you know what I mean) Over all it was clean... More

I'm not much of a sports bar person but this has food so good I try to tune out the electronic distractions. Onion rings are the best I've ever had! Pork rib appetizer was very tasty and tender and almost enough to have as an entree. I've also had the egg roll which was crispy outside and moist and tender... More

What a surprise! The food was excellent. We were not expecting much as we stopped there due to the fact that another place we wanted to go to was so crowded. We ordered some wings, excellent, french dip, also great, onions rings are a must have. Cheese steak egg rolls very nice. Service was excellent. Wait staff all very friendly... More
