“Sharky's On the Pier”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

If you walk around the back you will the detereoration
and sometimes bugs. The food is average, popular place because of the outdoor bar and bands. Be ready to wait even if you have reservations.

Hard to find a table. Waitresses were young,polite and easy going. Good location and easy parking. Fabulous views and able to walk straight onto the beach.

“Gorgeous View But Barely Average Food”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Sharkey's is definitely on the shabby and non too clean side but it retains its popularity because it is one of the few places in this area where you can have a drink and watch the sun sink into the Gulf of Mexico. The food here is barely average with a lot of frozen, portion controlled, food service items on the menu. Go to the upstairs deck for best view, order a drink and enjoy sunset. Then head to one of the very good restaurants along Venice or Miami Aves for dinner.

“Reminded me of Bahamas”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

The background music, choice of cuisine and outside dining reminded me of my dining experience in the Bahamas! The service was excellent, reasonable wait for our food, and taste was great! Price was expected for this type of dining. We had no wait to get in, but it was early afternoon in January on a Sunday. Definitely recommend!

“Great View”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

We eat here every time we come to Venice. It isn't real cheap but the food is good and it is on the gulf with a nice view. The servers are friendly and helpful if you have any questions. Expect a wait but we enjoy watching the beach and people from all over.
