My girlfriend and I went here on our vacation to ocean isle beach. This place was great. The atmosphere was good, with tvs all over the place, street signs and license plate tags from across the country. The food was excellent. We got the seafood combo with outstanding flounder. The service was impeccable. We will definitely eat here if we... More

If your staying at ocean isle beach, go to sharkys. It's pretty good and has been around longer than any other restaurant on the island, maybe area. It's good for kids. The conch bites are pretty good.

The owner, Ray, is a prince! Such a terrific guy! Southern hospitality at its best. Amazing food, get atmosphere and a friendly, caring staff who treat everyone like family! Our family plans to return to OIB each year and we wouldn't miss going to Sharky's for the world!

We have dined here several times and had both good and really bad experiences. Fun beachy atmosphere with water view and cool signage. Just wish the food was better. Service and food can range from good to terrible and they are frequently out of items on the menu. Not a lot of dining choices on Ocean Isle, so they get... More

The food was good, but the menu doesn't off that many choices -- ate off of the appetizer because there was nothing else I wanted. However, my food was delicious!

Stopped in at Sharky's on our last night, preparing to head back north to get away from the coming storm. Place was packed, everyone was enjoying the food and atmosphere. We had the blackened tuna with rice pilaf and steamed vegetables and the fried seafood platter. Have eaten the Calabash style fried seafood all over this area, waiting to see... More

Stopped her for a quick lunch on our way to the beach. Hubby had the flounder sandwich which was fantastic! Service was great and the place was very casual and fun. We would definitely stop by again.

Typical beach fare. Nothing remarkable. Pizzas are ok when they can manage to get your order correct. Pretty good bar. Very nice views. Parking and road access problematic. Service is ok inside but takeout can be very dicey. Best attribute is it is located right on ocean isle beach island. There are many better restaurant selections but if convenience is... More

We drove up the Intercoastal waterway from Myrtle Beach and visited for dinner. The drinks and view were good, but the food was just average if not less so. The view definitely makes up for it all!
