My wife and I had a very nice lunch here at our recent stay on OIB. Conveniently located on the main island right when you cross the bridge, Sharky’s is always on our list of restaurants we will visit. It is a very casual dining environment; you feel like you’re on vacation as soon as you walk in the door.

Service was good and has been consistent in the years we have visited.

Food quality is very good. They have some unique menu items (shark’s teeth….mmmm) that are must-dos when visiting. Overall entrees were delicious for both of us.

Bottom line: The first place we go when we get to OIB is Sharky’s, you will love it.

Service was excellent; food good; bathroom facilities need upgrading and removal of mold away from walls behind toilets. We will return and hopefully the musty odor as you enter disappears.

In as much as the hush puppies were not a free on the table like many local restaurants, we tried them as a appetizer, They were terrific, for the most part the meals were very good. It is so convenient to Ocean Isle beach, it is hard to beat. The last night were were there we were thanked by a man that was perhaps a manager or owner, he was very gracious and made an impression on us. The servers are always friendly, they work hard to get the food out quickly, We will be back next visit!!

We have been going to Ocean Isle since 1962. In the early years we made the trip to Calabash once a year for fried everything. Sharky's came along maybe 20 years ago and we have never been back to Calabash (or Sunset Beach). Maybe 10 years ago Sharkys ownership changed. The new owners cleaned it up a bit and raised the quality of the food and service. If you still want the fried platter they have it. But if your taste have matured their blackened grouper sandwich is awesome. I requested the boom boom sauce they use on the fish tacos and they could not have been more accommodating. The service is great. The food will not disappoint, but if you choose fried anything you get what you deserve - a sleepless night. Oh, the bartender is great too.
