“Almost great, but still pretty good.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

This was another place I really wanted to love. The location is great! They are right on the water and we got a seat outside, right at sunset. It was relaxing and beautiful. The staff was very friendly and eager to make our visit great and I love that. We had a really nice time here.

My gripe is that for as pretty as the location is and as nice as everyone was, they just fell short. Our very nice waitress, really didn't know much at all about the menu, and she was very slow. Our drinks came at the same time as our appetizer... late... and they weren't busy. And the food was just ok. I expected it to be better. It wasn't that it was bad, it was just of a lower quality. Its seafood, but more like bar-food than freshly prepared, these guys really know what they're doing, seafood.

All-in-all, still a nice place to eat, but don't mistake it for a place serving really great, fresh, local, awesome seafood.

“Nice View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

After a long day at Cumberland island we got off the ferry and walked over to grab dinner. We didn't have to wait for a table and sat on the second story of the balcony. Food was good and the waitress was very friendly. Great view of the water.

“Nice Location and View of the Water”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

Sharkbites had typical pub food you would expect to find in most sports bars, but the location and service were great. We were able to sit on the second story balcony and indulge in appetizers and drinks while watching the port activity and gazing at the water. It made for a great first stop for our weekend in St. Mary's.

“Great Restaurant on the River”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2014 via mobile

The Shark Bite is a great restaurant located "on the river" in historic St. Mary's GA. There is ample, shaded seating on two levels with gorgeous views of the water. Full bar service is available. I recommend the Bloody Mary, which is fabulous. The menu features fresh, locally sourced ingredients. The atmosphere is casual. Shorts, t-shirts and sandals are the dress code. The owners are on - site and truly care about their patrons. You can't go wrong here.

“Good Burger”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014 via mobile

Ate here after a long hot day on Cumberland Island. The burgers were really good, seasoned well and tasted fresh and hand made. Generous serving of fries. Chocolate cake was just ok. Service was good. Seemed like they were having issues with one of the waitress, she tried to take someone's table or something. Prices were really good. Happy we picked there to eat, we left happy and tummies full.
