We decided to drive down to Venice from Siesta Key (about a 25 to 30 minute drive) to go to Sharky's On The Pier for dinner. No wait for a table - we were seated inside immediately. The restaurant was fun with a real casual vibe. We had a very pleasant waitress. For dinner, we both had the macadamia nut grouper and coconut shrimp entree. It was very good. For dessert we had strawberry shortcake. It was just okay. I think, in the future, I would order a different dessert. There was also a musician playing music and some people danced. It would be fun to go back there earlier in the evening and walk the pier.

Great service, average food. Would go back again because of the location and service. Plan to wait to get in.

If you're looking more for atmosphere over the food then this is the place to go. That's not to say that the food is bad but rather average. The view and pier are beautiful but the food could be better.

We went here with my niece and her 3 boys over Memorial Day weekend – Big Mistake! Too many people had the same idea. After an hours wait we finally got a booth outside that was big enough for our group. Once we were seated things improved. There was a great band and our dinners actually turned out pretty good, especially the fried shrimp.

What could be better than a great lunch on the beach? The Summer On the Beach Salad and Crab Cakes combination is the way to go for me. My husband prefers the Blackened Ahi Tuna or the Mahi Mahi. Everything we have tried has been great and the servers are friendly and efficient. Afterwards we allow a little time to walk the pier, walk the beach or take a dip in the warm gulf.
