Our group of 14 was seated within 30 minutes of our arrival at 6PM. Our waitress, Heather, was wonderful..friendly, cheerful and extremely efficient. The Mac and cheese bites appetizers are delicious. The Not So Cajun shrimp dinner is now my favorite shrimp pasta dinner!

We eat at Sharks each beach trip, and had another delicious meal. I had the No So Cajun Chicken pasta which was divine! The service was great also. Can’t wait to go back in the fall.

Sharky's has great beach decor! Lots of pictures of sharks and surfers. Also, golfers. The blackened fish sandwich was good, but frankly did not live up to my expectations.
