I stop in here every time I'm on the island. Usually I just have drinks, but this time I tried the food. Large portion sizes. I was very hungry after running a 20 mile road race, but still had a hard time finishing everything. Definitely try the habanero pineapple wings!

Because another local eatery was closed inexplicably, we ended up at Sharky's Cantina, and we were glad that we did. Great Mexican food, large portions and great service. Too bad it was a working lunch, since at least one of those beers on offer would have gone great with my enchiladas.

On Martha's Vineyard there are a bunch of seafood restaurants and American food places. Therefore sharky's is great. I have taken multiple trips every summer. The nachos are amazing. Very fun and great energy. Ask your waiter for a game console they are so fun. And if you go to the one in Edgartown there is a dq across the... More

Stumbled on this restaurant and decided to try it. I've been back 3x already! I had the fish taco. Excellent,...my friend had the chicken fajita. The fajita came out sizzling! Would definitely recommend.

Not impressed with freshness or quality of food. The meals were reasonably priced but there is nothing special about the food at all. Want a crappy sour mix maragrita? This is your place.

I like the places that are open all year round. We used to support Sharky's in that sense. The price is to attract the locals with the simple meal price tags. But, in the middle of the winter season, their rice that came with my meal was dried and rock-hard, one wrong first bite of the hard rice chipped my... More

Hi- I'm having trouble understanding this review...our rice is obviously made in house many times a day and every staff member knows that of course and walks by the rice makers often...there could be no confusion. We sell hundred of thousand of portions a year with no issue...rice is the #1 item sold and if we had an issue like... More

With a name like sharky's cantina you would expect lots of sharks (check!) and good margaritas. The bartender was inviting but the margarita fell short. And they didn't have any t-shirts You have to go to another location to buy a Tshirt. Bathroom is around back w secret code. We didn't order any food but portions we saw others eating... More

You must try the pulled chicken Caesar salad. It was so good we went there twice for dinner. Also, the Bloody Mary's were pretty good too!

In our one night at the end of season we chose this place to eat. Mexican is my favourite and fella isn't keen on fish (which is the main food on the Island). Service was prompt and efficient. Steve was our waiter. Very friendly and had the 'upselling' down to a fine art.  Food very nice. We had the homemade... More
