We live on AMI, so have lots of opportunities to sample local fare. Sharky's has consistently great food, fantastic service (especially from Marie, who owns it with her husband), and excellent happy hour & food specials. Definitely worth a visit, just not in September when they, and most of the rest of the island, close for vacation.

We went to Sharkey's after a long day of house hunting and shopping, and were looking for a nice place close to our hotel. First, I think perhaps we expected more due to some of the reviews on Tripadvisor. Also, we may have just picked a bad night, namely Friday. Maybe the chef was off or not up to par that evening. Or perhaps our initial impression was skewed due to the lack of patrons present. Whatever the reason, Sharkey's was not very good. (Or horrible either, to be fair.)
My salad was no better than what one would get at a Wendy's. We ordered what the waitress assured us was fresh fish. It did taste fresh! The vegetables were overcooked. The service, however, was good, probably because there were few other diners. They did have an older chap playing guitar who was pretty good. There were some older folks enjoying listening to him and having drinks. Like I said, perhaps we just picked the wrong night, But Mary's comment as we left summed up our impression of Sharkey's, "It's like a pick-up place for the retired singles in the area."

Thank you for visiting Sharky's .. Yes your impression was skewed or Your mindset was screwed up The patrons where few because it was early the Fish was fresh because is all ways fresh the service was good because is all ways good and a simple spring mix salad is all ways free with your meal and it is the best priced menu for what You get any where in the area.
Sharkys cateres to Families and Travelers to Movie stars and Music stars Politicians and Ministers it it was never a" pick-up joint " We are proud of Our Reputation and Standards
You got it Wrong

Overprices and under delivered! Way to expensive for what you receive, however the service was good.

I was not impressed with Sharky's. The food was average, but the price was high. The steak was dry, and the service was nothing out of the ordinary. It gave me the impression that maybe 20 or 30 years ago this would have been a high-class restaurant.

Great place to grab some good food and a few drinks on the beach. The owners are such a nice couple. We are usually here for every New Year's Eve dinner. The grouper Oscar is wonderful. Easy to find, good prices and a nice, quaint atmosphere. You can't go wrong here.
