Sharky's On The Pier is the place to go when in Venice. It is right on the beach. You can take your time, stroll the beach, people watch, and have some food. The food is about average for this kind of place - though maybe a little over-priced compared to other places. It is a fun spot and worth the... More

I liked how you can go from the beach and then go to eat right there. Then you can go back top the beach.

Went twice for lunch in the last week. Both times we were seated promptly and the server was attentive and not overbearing. Had a grilled grouper sandwich (excellent) first day and a salad with grilled chicken (again excellent) the second time. Great view of the beach and great food, not much else to say.

Good food and great beach. Caesar salad and the cheese bread was nothing to rave over but the meals we had were very good. Both a "sharkys favorite"

We walk along the beach to Sharky's several times during our 2 month stay in Venice. It's a great place to sit at their outside bar and have a drink, maybe some wings or nachos and feel the gulf breezes. Super casual with good food.

While this restaurant is alongside a lovely view, we found the food near tasteless and wayyyyyy overpriced! Just enjoy the beach---don't eat here!

Went to Sharkeys twice on this trip to Venice. The first time, all good. Coconut shrimp were large, fried perfectly. Key lime pie was great. But the second visit was pretty bad. Sweet potatoe fries ( which came late to the table because the waiter forgot to order them) were very undercooked. The chicken strips were unedible because they were... More

Will be back again. Always reliable. Always crowded. Outside at sunset is beautiful and will make your day.

We arrived about 5pm and enjoyed some Burgers and wings, a few beers and the sunset. Great time to visit this ocean front landmark. Sunset changes so check before you go. Place fills up early for the sunset.
