We live four hours away, and often we'll decide in the morning to drive to Sharks for dinner!! It is worth the drive! Fresh seafood steamed (not fried, grilled, or baked.....no breading) is the BEST. Our past favorites include the steamed clams, Bloody Mary, Pan...More

What a find! Chef Corky and Karen have made the most of this tiny spot, and the steamer cooking system salvaged off of a submarine makes for wonderfully tasty healthy seafood ... don't miss the superb curry and the halibut is fantastic! Can't say enough.......More

Absolutely the MOST FRIENDLY, ACCOMMODATING service I've ever experienced! This is basically a bar with tables, but the food far surpasses pub grub. The New York City-priced food is fresh and crammed onto a single plate; salad and all. The halibut daily special was outrageously...More

Delicious food and friendly service. They have a unique set up for diners. We ate at the front bar where we could interact with the chef and watch him prepare food in interesting steamer units.

We drove from Vancouver, Canada down to SF having oysters wherever we could. This place produced by far the best - fresh, tasty and BIG. Family set up, just open in the evenings. Great happy service and frequented by locals.

What are the cost of the entrees? I'd like to take my family for dinner, but don't want to spend $40+ per plate? Are there kids entrees?
