The vibe and atmosphere was phenomenal. Food was average and the service was poor. May have been a coincidence but everyone in my party had stomach issues the next day. Also, we were charged a service fee for eating in the restaurant.

We asked the taxi driver to take us to a local beachside restaurant on the way back to Montego Bay having been to Dunn's River Falls for the morning. He took us to Sharkies and we weren't disappointed. Typical laid back beach bar/restaurant, service was slow but we didn't mind as were in no great rush. Lovely spot by the... More

The food is good and made to order. Served on nice clean white plates. The pictures in the menu are just there to fill space I guess because they don't necessarily have it. Prices are fair. The service is SLOW SLOW SLOW. This is well known by locals who will callin an order 30-45min before they head there. We did... More

Sharkies do their best all the time to make the environment pleasant and relaxing I love eating there, the view is just beautiful. What to expect when ordering fish you have to go pick it and wait while the prepared it, so sit back and have a drink and talk in no time your food will be ready. The service... More

I asked the locals for a nice seafood restaurant and they recommended Sharkies. It doesn't look like much but the staff and food was excellent.We had the garlic Lobster and grilled Lobster. Both were some of the best I have ever had. They give you 2 Lobsters for around $26 a plate. Try their seafood gumbo too. It were excellent.The... More

I don't mind waiting for a good meal, however sitting on wooden benches for an hour and half, and the waitress still not being able to tell us when our meal would be served... how long does lobster take to cook???

Don't be in too much of a hurry if you go to Sharkies the service is not the best but the good tasting freshly cooked mouthwatering food is wert the wait.

Don't waste your time. We waited one and a half hours and still didn't get our order, yet saw people being served who arrived after us. When we questioned that, we were told that MAYBE they had pre ordered....yeah right ! It was Valentines Night, but even so, you wouldn't expect that wait in a top London restaurant ! Eventually...

We were there with a group of 23. We pre arranged our arrival the day of. We loved the view. Very low key, and laid back. Be prepared to wait for your food. Our food came 2 hours later, and only to find out, one of our meals could not be prepared because the kitchen couldn't cook it. The ladies... More

Cheap beer, beautiful beach what more could you ask for? Such a beautiful setting, love that the patio is set up on the beach. You can watch the fishermen come & go & enjoy some chat chat with some locals
