Being born and raised in southeastern North Carolina, means that I grew up on delicious, well-prepared seafood of all kinds. That being said, occasionally I have the experience of eating somewhat inferior seafood or, happily, having some exceptionally good seafood. My visit to Sharky's, on February 20, offered the latter. Seafood of the highest quality available.
We were with a group of 17 seniors, visiting Ocean Isle to see the Museum of the Coastal Carolinas and the Ingraham Planetarium. WE had bee to another restaurant, until we found they had elected to close, without notice, because of poor business during February. That left us, on short notice, to find someplace for our seniors to eat.
Not knowing much, we elected to try Sharky's, which turned out to be an extremely lucky decision.
The food, of all varieties from burgers to seafood platters, turned out to be delicious, properly prepared, and reasonable priced.
While some menu offerings seemed a little pricey, it turned out to be appropriate when the servings appeared. A seafood platter, at $19.50, seemed somewhat high until the protions we examined. A very large offering of flounder cooked to perfection, 1/2 dozen large fried shrimp, 1/2 dozen scallops, and enough fried oysters to make a dinner by themselves, at most other restaurants. And since I am particularly fond of oysters, the quantity and the way they were cooked made me very happy.
The restaurant is happy to allow sharing of platter, without additional charge, or to allow seniors to order from the child's menu.
Other menu selections, burgers to fish sandwhiches, seemed to make everyone happy.There were no complaints about the food, prices or service.
This meal was preceded by an appetizer of some of the best calamari I have ever eaten.
One waitress was assigned to our table and made it look easy to serve 17 senior citizens, each ordering and paying separately.
Would we go back again? As often as possible.
