Yesterday waited an hour for a table, inside. The outside tables were running an hour and a half at 1:00 pm. Pager went off 2x— both times a false alarm. That’s annoying, but even more so was server attitude. We felt like they were doing...More

Love the food, a few entrees are way too salty. Ask your server for advice. The daily catch is always good. The shirts in the gift shop are cheaply made. We bought one last year and it fell apart in 3 months.

Sharky's on the Pier is just that - an outdoor seafood meal at the foot of the Venice pier, with great views and atmosphere. Food was average and overpriced but good. Lots of sharks teeth to find as you walk along the shore afterwards.

Location, location, location and Sharky's has it. We were there for lunch and the place was packed. The service was outstanding and the food was good. We definitely would return.

The food has changed over the years for the better. We are local and go there all of the time. Love the specialty drinks, seafood wrap and more

Yes we do and as long as you notify the server we can accommodate your dietary and allergy needs. Believe it or not one of our owners is allergic to fish and shellfish. He eats here almost every day.
