Had a wonderful dinner here tonight!! Had the fresh snapper (absolutely amazing). Daughter had the Dungeness crab, also very good. Would agree with some of the other reviews that the salad should be served in a separate plate, that being said, it was very good...More

Small place. Fresh seafood steamed properly so no need for sauces. Fresh veggies and fruit. Cioppino is the best I’ve ever eaten. The owners are incredibly nice and helpful. Huge portions.

The food was fairly good. How it was assembled on the plate was mumbo jumbo. The salad needed it's own plate. You had to find the vegetables under the salad and fish. It seemed a little overpriced. The waitress was very friendly.

My wife started coming here 22 years ago for dinner and we have never been disappointed. The Cioppino, the clams, the oysters... Are worth the travel from anywhere you're at. It's an absolute must kneel when in the Newport area. We plan on coming here...More

It is so nice to see our devoted customers year after year. Thank you for keeping us viable. Without our valuable past & new customers it would be a real challenge these days. Hope to see you next time!

Sharks is a tiny little resteraunt with big heart. Its owner ran, a husband and wife team. The seafood is always very fresh. I love the seafood gumbo. "Yumbo Gumbo" I tend to order that every time. Get there right at opening if you want...More

This came highly recommended by our fishing guide. We agree! The Cioppino is delicious. The waitress was great. This is a must do for those visiting Newport OR.

This is a very small restaurant family owned. The food I thought was great, but my husband wasn't very impressed. But I love good Cioppino and seafood stews and he's doesn't. He did love their steamed clams though. I give the place a 10.
