Came here with our son for lunch while visiting him at Tech. Good food, friendly staff and good beer selection. Got the Steak salad, it was very good. Son got the BBQ, said it was really good as well.

Have eaten at Sharkeys multiple times..often with my son who is a Freshman there. Have eaten wings, BBQ, sandwiches and burgers. All half-decent but nothing special to write home about. Tends to be crowded, very noisy with long wait-times at certain times. If you are looking for quality food, then look elsewhere. But the staff try to get to everyone... More

Left another establishment for Sharkey's and was not disappointed. The front bar is well staffed, very attentive and got our food and drinks quickly. This was a busy Saturday before a football game so was pleased. Very hard to get a table but we waited till two seats opened up at the bar. The nachos are wonderful (without lettuce!)

Our grandson took us to this restaurant when we visited Blacksburg recently. The atmosphere was pleasant, service was good and we were pleased with our meal. My husband got the black and bleu burger with a side salad and homemade Blue Cheese dressing. I had the BBQ pork sandwich with coleslaw and Carolina style based vinegar sauce with a side... More

My husband and I love getting together with friends at Sharkeys in Blacksburg, especially during the summer months when the students at VT are gone. The menu is huge and the staff is friendly (most of them). There's a good happy hour special and Mondays are BOGO on burgers. Sitting inside is sort of a drag, but the patio is... More

A local heard my wife and I talking about grabbing a burger. The local told us Sharkey's had the best burger in town. We tried it and the advice was right. Nice outdoor seating. Wonderful waiter in Kevin. Great variety of beer.

We went here to watch the hockey game and have drinks. The bartenders were not only friendly and quick to serve, but they were excellent! Sharkey's is a great value for the money but they know how to make nearly every drink to perfection! Unbelievable that this is a college bar!

We love Sharkey's! Lunchtime offers a wonderful salad and baked potato bar for the business crowd, good dinner specials nightly (Tuesdays are great nights for the kids), and nightly around 9:00 Sharkey's turns into a rocking college handout. I highly recommend the burgers and wings. Great draft beer selection.

We dropped in one cold night right after New Year for a warm meal before going to The Lyric for a movie. Because it was between semesters, there were few students in town and Sharkey's was almost deserted. This was our first visit even though we've lived here 35 years. The inside is bare, more suitable for standing crowds of... More

Mahi Salad. Tried it twice. Only tried it the second time because I forgot what it was like the previous time. Overcooked, hard, dried out, and chewy like a cheap T-bone steak. OK, I know, it's a rib and wing joint, not a mahi joint. The Onion Rings were good, regardless of whether they cut and battered them there or... More
