Sharkey's is a Venice institution with wonderful beachfront seating, good comfort food, and a pleasant, helpful staff. In season (Nov.-April), outdoor seating can require a bit of a wait--indoor is easier. Try the grouper sandwich, a seafood salad or one of the shrimp dishes. Cocktails...More

On our way out from the beach we stopped by to check this out. Felt like you were truly on a tropical vacation. Great atmosphere! Will definitely be back for a drink and eats next time we are in the area.

Longtime Venetians will mirror this same sentiment. Prime location, directly in the water, good drinks. But the food just doesn't make the grade. Order an app if you must, but go elsewhere for dinner. The on deck entertainment is usually good, but the tables are...More

They handled a group of about 15 people very well. Orders were all delivered at the same time and I think they got them all correct. Drinks were done well. They are under construction so the bathroom scene is not well done - in trailers,...More

I Love to eat at a restaurant on the beach. Sharky's is a must if you like a good meal, appetizer or a cold drink after a day of fun in the sun. Their frozen mango daiquiri is delicious. Their hamburger is huge and delicious....More
