We have heard of Sharkey's but never visited until today. The service and food were adequate, not subpar nor amazing. We ordered some wings (the sweet Thai curry was kind of bland), sweet potato fries, and beers. It wasn't a bad experience by any means, it was def a college style spot. It reminds me of a local / less... More

Have been here several times but this was the first as a couple. Great food and excellent drinks. Every sporting event of note has its own screen. Sit at the last ge bar area or go to the family side and relax. The wings are amazing.

Sharkey's has awesome food. They offer daily specials and long Happy Hours everyday! Jamie Talbert, the kitchen manager certainly knows what he is doing. Keep up the good work.

We celebrated my son-in-law's birthday with family and all the food--breakfast burger (with egg), wings, sandwiches, and desserts were great. Michelle was a very attentive server. The quesadillas were a wonderful appetizer. All in all it made for a great celebration.

A great place to hang out, and enjoy company of friends... A number of large TV screens to watch, while listening to a variety of music. Close to a lot of Radford apartments, so if you are visiting a student there, they are within walking distance

We got into town for a sporting event and was told about this place. We sat and looked around and it was cool. A large warehouse atmosphere, but clean. I had the Bison Burger, my wife had the bar-b-que pork, and my daughter had the wings. Everything was delish!

Met a couple of friends here for lunch. Had the soup and salad bar. There were 4 soup/chili choices and many items to put on your salad. I like that you can pick and choose what you put on your salad. Service was good. We sat in the bar section, which is less noisy than the main open area. Not... More

Great burgers and wings. We get take out several times a month. The Crabby Patty is really excellent. It can get overrun with college kids on the weekends.

The food is wonderful here, the menu choices are great and the staff is friendly. My husband and I love to frequent this place when all the RU students are gone. It is rather lively there when the students are in town and if you like it lively its GREAT! Prices are reasonable as well. The atmosphere is very pleasant.... More
