I have been going to Sharky's for years because of the amazing views and the atmosphere. There is no other restaurant like it in the area and it is always a fun time. It can be hard to find a table during season, but that is because it is a very popular place.

I recommend that if you are there when it is very busy and the seating is self-serve you ask one of the servers if a table is getting up soon and wait to see if that table departs because waits can potentially be lengthy. There are also a lot of things to do while you wait; they have a tiki bar and an upstairs area that you can watch the sunsets at. I do recommend that you get there early for the sunsets and get one of the frozen drinks (my favorite is the frozen margarita).

I also recommend that you order the beach bread and one of the fresh fish options. Those are still my favorite things to order when I go.

If following the crowd is your thing, then going to Sharky's will be on your list of tourista 'things to do' while in Venice,Fl. With miles of beautiful beaches and the most dazzling sunsets to captivate you, this establishment could better enhance the moment rather than distract from it.

This is the best place in Venice to eat, drink, listen to music and see a great sunset. Prices are good, food is delicious, menu extensive and service friendly and timely.

Decent food but rather pricy. Excellent atmosphere, best location in town. Good service, always busy.

Always a crowd and always had to wait for a table (long wait at peak times).

The food is just average, nothing special.
