“Long Weekend Getaway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

Sharky's is one of our favorites in PCB while visiting. Food is always good and great service. The atmoshere of being on the beach, tiki bar, live entertainment in the evening and view makes this a location everyone should visit. The Mahi-Mahi Imperial is very good!

“Ok food at decent prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

I had a good time at Sharkys. I ordered crab legs and they were some of the best I've had. My boyfriend ordered the grouper and he was less than thrilled about the taste of the fish and the price. Due to its location compared to where we stayed, I would go back again

“Don't waste your money!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

We were excited to have good food with a local feel. The 14 oz steak that was way overpriced, was maybe a 8 oz and not good. We paid a lot of money for a meal that I regretted as soon as I had the first bite. Very, very disappointed!

“Thought it would be better....”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

It is more hype than anything, the food was mediocre at best and way over priced for what you got. Our waitress was horrible, we had to ask several times just for some extra napkins and a straw. We ordered several orders of wings and she didn't bring any silverware or napkins. Our drinks were wrong all night and they were just for soda and water. Our food came out cold. Didn't like the fact that you were only inches from people playing volleyball on the beach so you guessed it, sand in the food. Not a good experience and will not return. On top of everything else our waitress added her gratuity to our check and then tried to keep our change. I had to ask her 3 times to bring back our change. She tried to make almost 80.00 tip from our table, she also tried to give me the wrong change back, tried to short me almost 30.00. HORRIBLE time.
