Great beachy atmosphere but mostly fried bar food. We prefer fresh grilled seafood, which they have some of, but mostly it's fried food. I did enjoy the fried Oster's and the other couple enjoyed the raw Oster from Apalachicola. Our waitress catered to our every desire. It was very nice seating right at the beach edge.

This is a great place to dine with your family and the view is incredible! If you are in the need for a fantastic worship place when you are down, then visit Sharky's on Sunday mornings for Worship on the Water! Overall - this is a wonderful place to visit!

The beach view here is awesome! It's large, so even when they're busy there's lots of beach view tables. The food, prices, and service was great! We went 2x this trip!

We went here right before sunset to eat dinner (family of 5) and had no trouble getting a table. We had beautiful views of the beach and the sunset. My kids LOVED it. The service was excellent and the seafood was great. Excellent fish tacos and shrimp appetizer.

Wanted to sit and watch people on the beach and catch a sunset with great food and cocktails this place did not disappoint. Staff are polite. But heads up walking out of there. Timeshare people will attempt to make a sale.

The mixed drinks are excellent. Get 24oz glass it is worth it. The snow crabs legs 1/2dozen were great alot of meat in them. I had the fried seafood platter. It was very good as well. The view of the gulf of mexico sitting at your table looking out at it while you eating your meal. Drssert key lime pie... More

My mom and I decided to try Sharky's for a late dinner and immediately loved the shuttle from parking overflow across the street to the restaurant. The hostess who greeted us was pleasant but the hostess seating us never smiled, said "hello" and took off at a speed my mother could not keep up with and never looked behind her... More

Great menu served beach side. Between 7 of us, we challenged the menu and all exerienced a delicious meal. Our server (Alex) was very kind and courteous as she checked in on us numerous times throughout our meal. Her fun conversation made the visit extremely personal and family oriented. Thanks for a memorable experience!

Thank you so much for your feedback. We have been hearing a lot of good things about Alex and will be sure to let her know about it. Also we should be adding a few things to the menu very soon so you will have to come in and give those a try next time. More
