“5 Years Since My First Shark’s Cioppino”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

Ate here twice last week and would go back again, but vacation’s over. First night 3 of us had the Cioppino (of course) and the second night the owner made room for 9 of us – no small feat in this little restaurant. Talked 4 newbies into the cioppino & pasta and now have 4 new converts. (I did branch out & have a luscious pan roast last December, but it really has to be cold & stormy for that comfort food.) Everything still fresh and wonderful, owner still treating everyone as her favorite customers. A great place.

“Good but not great.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

Friendly server ( one only) not enough staff so service was slow. The ciopinno was really good as previous posts said, sweet and flavorful, but not enough fish for our liking. We also ordered the crab salad which was over priced for the value....mostly fruit, little veggies and lots of lettuce and not near enough crab for the $30 price! We did however enjoy the local beer in frosty cold glasses.

“Okay food, great service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012

The best thing I can say about Sharks is that we were warmly greeted and had outstanding service. I feel the food was overpriced and just okay. In fairness to Sharks, we were later told that oysters is their speciality and we don't like oysters so didn't try them. We had the Dungeness crab, which was just okay - mostly very fine pieces rather than nice chunks and overpriced for the portion.

“out of the ordinary”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012

Read lots of reviews of Sharks so we knew we had to order the cioppino. As luck would have it we were sitting at the counter (sit at the counter where the steamers are - came off a submarine according to Chip the cook) with a former server at Shark's. She encouraged us to order the Cioppino Supreme (not on the menu). Basically, all the seafood that is on the menu is steamed before you and then the incredible cioppino sauce they make is added to it. Chip was preparing the dishes for the other diners (not a big or fancy place) and carrying on a conversation with us about our travels and his travels, the US economy and life in general. The server and hostess and prep chef (his partner) was nothing short of the most sincere and amiable 'server' we have ever encountered. The wine and beer list is short, but adequate (my partner now has a new favourite Cab Sauv). It was a very memorable anniversary dinner.
