Counter service. Ordered nachos, which had been warmed in a pizza oven. They were therefore overdone...nearly burned to a crisp. Drinks from the soda machine were room-temperature. These machines typically cool the drink even without ice; not this one. Prices seemed unusually high, but this is Newport Beach where all prices are inflated.

Very good Mexican "fast food plus". You will order at the register when you walk in, then take a seat & they bring your meal. Good size portions, nice selection - better than most in this category. Indoor and outdoor seating. In the shopping center with Pavillions grocery store. We've been going to Sharky's about once per vacation in the... More

Five of us ate here. And all five had different styles of food and all liked it. Most unique was the pizza. Very tasty.

We eat here at least once every time we come to Newport Coast Villas. The employees are enthusiastic and helpful. The food is very good. It is not inexpensive; but, they give a discount to those staying at NCV.

Had high hopes for this place but left unimpressed. The kid tacos were good and flavorful, but the tostado salad was bland and uninspiring. And as for my quesadillas? Well, they forgot to make them. They were very apologetic and offered to make it right. I declined since we were in a hurry. The atmosphere was nice though. I'll come... More

Service was great. It is cafeteria style so not tip required. The service taker even recognized my husband's Service Academy ring and offered us a 20% discount! Food was really tasty and came fast. Great quick meal!

My first visit and I was pleasantly surprised by the low prices and delicious food. Counter service only, however when you dine in the staff ensures you have a pleasant dining experience. My Stacked Chicken Enchiladas were delicious and came in a hearty portion. They also serve a variety of wood fired pizzas. Their menu states they specialize in healthy... More

They contacted me 3 times by telephone after I ordered delivery from their restaurant as the delivery service, Grubhub, was late. They were quite responsive, polite, professional and courteous. Additionally, the food was excellent. 3 days later a manager followed up to insure of my satisfaction. I couldn't be happier.

I'm so glad we tried Sharkey's! I wish I could try more of the menu, but I'm from out of town. This is the exact kind of place that I would want to eat more often. They seem to have more natural choice on the menu. Two of us split a nachos and bbq chipotle chicken pizza. That is too... More
