Our server (who seemed to be co-owner, also) brought out two bowls filled to-the-brim with their rich, lovely seafood soup. She described them as "voluptuous" and spilled not-a-drop in bringing them from the kitchen to our table. See the accompanying photo. It was delicious, absolutely first-rate. If you visit Newport and you enjoy a good cioppino, put this on your... More

We have eaten here many times over the last number of years and never been disappointed. Great food, great staff. Best gumbo I have ever had outside of New Orleans.

Sharks really hit the spot on a cool Wednesday night.The Cioppino was satisfying and full of fresh fish and shellfish, and the Steamed Clams were delicious, with lots of bread provided to sop up the broth. Our server was knowledgeable, attentive and extremely enthusiastic. Our narrow table was a tight fit to the wall, making the mechanics of eating a... More

Every fall we come to Newport and never miss an opportunity to eat at Sharks. If we have friends visiting, we take them there too. The Cioppino is to die for! Large with the pasta, but delicious. We even take the Cioppino mix home with us to enjoy later in the year. Great staff. Small but worth it. If you... More

We remembered Sharks fondly from our visit to Newport last Sept so we went back. The ciopinno is wonderfully delicious and the sour dough bread is very sour, just the way we like it. I wasn't terribly hungry so just got the regular sized bowl which is still a bit more than I had room for. Go, you won't be... More

A nice review but we do not serve meat. We do serve Halibut on occasion but not w/cheese. You might give the reader a wrong idea of what we serve, thanks. Sharks More

Our family loves this restaurant. It's very small but the food is amazing as is the service. It appears to be a couple who runs it...but not sure. The server is a darling woman who has been there the past 3 years that we've been dining there.

Simply the best. Nothing is fried. The seafood stews are amazing. The fresh crab is over the top. Great service and totally the best fresh seafood on the coast.

Had one meal there and enjoyed it. Very small place and a little quirky but the food is good and the prices very reasonable. I had the cioppino and it was really good. My wife had the red snapper special and was disappointed in it but it looked good to me.

Just go to Shark's. It will be the best food decision you make in Newport, seriously. We went there for dinner this week after a mediocre dinner at Georgie's, and we loved Shark's so much, we wound up eating dinner there two nights in a row! Steamed clams: amazing quality, in a broth so addictive you will want to drink... More
