“The best cioppino ever!”
Reviewed 30 January 2012

This small restaurant packs a big punch of flavor! The fresh green salad with shrimp and blue cheese dressing followed by seafood filled cioppino...it just doesn't get better than this. This is a gem of a place with the freshest seafood and a warm and friendly staff.

“This is the place for seafood stew!”
Reviewed 21 January 2012

Don't be put off by the atmosphere, this restaurant is the place to go for seafood stew in various forms. The owner/waitress is quite the character. This is not a white table cloth restaurant.

“Don't put too much weight on the (one or two) negative reviews”
Reviewed 29 November 2011

I'm a pretty darn good cook (my Dad was a gourmet chef; you learn a lot cleaning up after one of 'those guys'), and can attest that Sharks Seafood Bar and Steamer Company serves up some great seafood dishes. They are very generous with their seafood (how many times have you said in a restaurants 'wow, they only had 4 shrimps in that dish' or 'there was only a few clams in that cioppino'), and the flavors are very aromatic with rich seafood stock, garlic and fresh herbs. I plan to make this a regular stop whenever I'm in town and hope you will too.
