“Scenic Electrically Charged Atmosphere.!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

Anyone that has been here before will realize that this is a great hangout in front of one of the best beaches in the USA.The food is excellent and the service is equally as good.An enjoyable atmosphere along with a great assortment of drinks and a wonderful menu.It also has its own pier that you can walk out on and then come back for some more food and drink.Another great location for the Sharkys franchises.This has to be the best one out of all of them.

“Oh dear”

All I can say is disappointing. Our server was rude and the food less than average. The setting is beautiful though

“Fish Taco's and Sunset”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

This was the first trip to Venice Florida and we enjoyed the food and the beach at Sharky's on the Pier. It was a little cool and windy but we had seats inside and the service was very good. We had about a fifteen minute wait for a table, this is common for dinner with lines waiting to get in. They have plenty of free parking and do provide valet service.

“Extraordinary view of the ocean and beach with nice food selection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

Beachfront, Tiki Bar, and a Fishing Pier....Amazing view of Venice beach/ocean. Great waitress--Stephanie. Outdoors dining is perfect. There is an outdoor beach bar to sit at and visit with locals or tourist from all over the world. A nice selection of seafood dinners and vegetarian choices also. Selections really worth trying are: Summer on the beach salad, Shrimp trio and he edamame salad. Don't forget to ask for the fresh baked peach or berry bread, It is dessert alone! Amazing to the taste buds. A definite place to find and try-- you will not be disappointed.
Casual, outdoor dining, even the kids will love. Watch out for the birds...they might try to sneak a French fry or two....even they know a good deal! Open until midnight on Friday and weekends. Thank you for reading. Brenda S.

“Nice location.Mediocre food.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

Had Easter dinner at Sharky's. Waitstaff, location, and entertainment was great. Disappointed in the food. The bread came out with foreign matter like pink icing and something unrecognizable on it.Got the thai shrimp and chicken. The chinese noodles were to be crisp. They were a melted gooey mess. The shrimp was not frdsh had the strong iodine aftertaste.
The key lime pie for dessert was good.
I would go back for drinks and bar snacks but not for a meal.
