A very beachy laid back atmosphere. Typical menu for seafood plus pizza. Reasonable prices. I had the flounder platter with fries,cole slaw, and hush puppies for $15. Also get to keep your "Sharky's" cup.

Serves was slow and server was in a fog. Food was good and the view was good too. May try it again. Like that you can keep the cups.
