Enjoyed the sun setting from the pier then had dinner inside. My wife tried the Mango Bango drink and loved it. The grouper and coconut shrimp was excellent.

Yes the Mahi Mahi Fish Tacos were good too, but we went to get the best dessert in Florida. Ice Cream Mud Pie has just the right combination of sweet, salty, chocolate, peanut butter, fudge and peanuts

A perfect beach restaurant with delicious food. Service was friendly and very efficient. Desserts were delicious and the fish was excellent. Definitely recommend going for a wonderful day by the sea right next to The Pier?

We sat at the tiki bar and had dinner and drinks, our bartender has worked there a very long time and was very attentive and helpful. My pina colada was very good, salads were fresh and great, the entrees were served a little slow but it was super packed, but they were very tasty, and the service provided was great,... More

The location is stellar - although a 'red tide' surge was causing almost everyone to cough and wheeze when we visited. This is a well-established restaurant and something of a 'must see' with the result that it is a bit too big and too busy. Sharky's maintains its commitment to lots of locally caught fish and shellfish, so the quality... More

We had the BLT Salad and Shrimp and Chips....excellent! Shrimp was fresh, firm and tasty! Even the salad was crisp, fresh and well prepared. However, the physical facility has seen better days and the inside dining room had that funky, kinda, dirty smell. Floors, fixtures and structure were well worn. That said, we'd go back...but eat outside.

We have been here 7 weeks and decided after a long bike ride to have an early dinner here and check out Sharkey's. The server was very friendly and efficient but the food is mediocre and overpriced. My burger was overdone and my wife's salad only had a few overcooked shrimp. We waited over a half hour to get in... More
