What a gorgeous restaurant Sharkys (casual, comfortable and great service) with a view to die for! There is a few shops to buy beach attire, bathing suits, thorns, and trinkets. The food is great and the Calypso Atmosphere is so enjoyable. Try for yourself you...More

We tried Sharky's for the first time last week. Our late lunch certainly did not disappoint. The service was great, the food was really good ( especially the fried shrimp) and freshly prepared, and the view was unbeatable. Prices were a little higher than expected,...More

We had amazing service with a breathtaking view. The nachos were the perfect appetizer. The chicken and shrimp thai was delicious and the mango bango was also a hit.

We enjoyed Sharkey's for the 2nd time. Warm ocean breezes while we're eating, drinking and listening to music. Casual and fun atmosphere. Enjoyed watching the sunset while walking on the pier after dinner. A little bit of paradise before heading back to the north.

This restaurant was recommended to us and did not disappoint. There was a 40 minute wait for our table. We expected this arriving at 7:00 pm. The view of the Gulf of Mexico helped to pass the time. We rate the food and the service...More
