“Great atmosphere, OK food”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

Imagine sitting on a porch overlooking the causeway while Jimmy Buffett plays over the speakers and the owner chats up guests, friends and regulars a few spots over. It's that kind of place. Very homey and comfortable, just the kind of place that makes you smile just being there. I got a fried seafood plate, and the food was a bit too greasy for my taste. I'll eat here again, but get something not fried.

“Outdoors after dark on patio, nice!”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

Fun food and great appetizers, often make several of them the meal. Nice outdoor seating at long counters facing the OIB canal off Intracoastal. You can drive up in your boat and dock here and come in to eat. Great!!

“Plain old beach food”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

Nothing special here, except that the seafood comes from the sea right there. Plain old fried stuff.

“Menu full of items!”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

I was really surpised at the multiple items on the menu. Everything looked so good as we passed all the tables. Our food was great! It was crowded but we did not have to wait too long. Very loud. Next time we get back that way, we'll go back for more!

“Consistent quality food + service = I'll be back”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Sharky's is our go-to restaurant on Ocean Isle Beach. Our family loves the casual atmosphere, the menu has lots of options in addition to their consistently good seafood. The setting on a canal just off the US ICW is very nice
