Decent food - a bit overpriced for what it was. Fast and friendly service - could take it or leave it. If in the area and hungry it'll do.

My family and I dined outside, the service was awesome, our food was hot and fresh, and the view/ambience, wow. Just, wow. Rick and Alicia made us laugh until our beers almost came out of mine and my wife’s noses.

Great local place... Yes the menu is limited but I can honestly say I had a very good prime rib last night. Cooked to perfection actually. Baked potato and zucchini were yum. Great locals to talk to and a friendly bar. You can even take out now. Wuuuuuut!!! Kids menu is love as well. Family, couples, singles... have at it...u can even eat out doors...a bit tight but if the weather is right, the view is worth it.

We visited again last weekend. While my old favorite was on there, I did notice a change in the menu. The blackened grouper sandwich has been improved with a hogie roll. This replaced the bun which was never large enough for the fish. Thumbs up there ! One member of our group ordered the French dip. It was HUGE no way she was eating all of that. Some reviews mention an up charge for non-cash. I have not noticed but I will inquire at my next visit. While everyone was friendly our server was a little slow which is unusual, but food came out quickly as usual. While I will assume they are still working the kinks out of the new menu, I ordered pimento cheese dip as an appetizer. They served the pimento cheese cold. I had the server warm it. After warming it tasted fantastic with the pita bread. I will inquire about that one as well. Sharky’s for us is just a fun place to visit. Oh I forgot to mention, for the grouper sandwich request a side of the bang bang sauce !

Thank you so much taking time to express your thoughts and are happy you enjoyed the change in the bread on your grouper sandwich.
We are still in the process of tweaking the menu and your comments are appreciated. Especially the pimento cheese - it’s my recipe!
We had issues with our credit card processing company and their software. To bridge the gap we used a temporary service and they did charge a processing fee. We refunded or discounted the bill for the charge to all.
See you next time and you can try the French Dip!

Thanks
