My wife and I were travelling through the Ventura area and needed to grab lunch. We had heard about the Sharky's chain from a family member but had never visited one before. I love the Rubio's Coastal Mexican Grill chain and this place is very similar. The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to do their... More

Nice place to eat - great tasting, high quality food at reasonable price. Great service too. Salsa bar has about 10 choices - it's the best I've seen. They are right off freeway so easy to get to if driving north on 101. I also like that the food is healthy. Lots of great choices on menu so something for... More

Really healthy food is NOW on the menu at Sharky's! They have WILD caught fish served with TWO sides at every Sharky's. I at at the one in Simi last week and found out there's one right here in Ventura. It's grilled to perfection, size is perfect and taste is great. Another great find for the food conscious.

I hadn't been back here for many months, and have heard that the guys running this Sharky's have opened another branch, which can sometimes be the kiss of death for restaurants as the management spread themselves too thinly and concentrate on profit rather than quality. But this is definitely not the case here - it's just the same - great... More

Basic, Americanized Mexican food. No bargain, but if you're in the shopping center (Kohl's, Barnes & Noble) and are hungry, it's fine.

I have been coming to this Sharkys since I first visited Ventura in 2005! It is all ways worth the trip. All items on the menu are excellent. Fish Tacos are the highlight. So is the excellent salsa bar. I like that they offer a gluten free menu and are well versed in the procedures. I have been to many... More
