We stopped at Sharky's for lunch on a Thursday. It was very busy which is always a good sign. They started us off with drinks a delicious pumpkin bread. I had the best crab cake sandwich ever. Excellent lunch stop.

Location is great, right off of the beach and our meal was very good, Nicely prepared fresh fish dishes, I would have graded it one spot higher if we didn't have to wait so long for a table. Overall I would go again, Karen H

Great place to have a beverage and watch the sunset. The pier has many fishermen and today we saw 2 baby sharks, a stingray and a kingfisher caught within about 15 minutes. The beach is public and hidden from much of Venice, located near the airport. Food was average and reasonably priced. People were really enjoying themselves at this location. We will be back!

I hate to say that this is one of the best places to see the sunset while you eat, but it is. The restaurant gets REALLY busy near sunset, so you may not want to go then. I had a really nice lunch there in the Spring and walked on the Pier afterwards. The food can be good or just okay. It depends on what you pick. Sometimes, it can get muggy inside in the Summer if they don't keep the outside doors closed. But, it is hard to do that when servers are going in and out to serve the meals. The ambiance is fun with a seaside theme. The outdoor Tiki Bar is fun and lively. Quite often, there is free entertainment near the outdoor bar. The prices are average.

This is an OK place for tourists who don't mind paying too much for average-level food in return for the semi-authentic Florida atmosphere and view of the gulf. Locals don't eat here, as you can get better food for a lot less money elsewhere.
