We’re really sorry about your disappointing experience but this holiday period has been increasingly overwhelming for us, we’ve never seen so much traffic through the establishment and have had to even refuse some tables. I’m pretty sure you would have noticed that the restaurant was...More

We have been driving past Sharkie's for more years than I can remember - possibly as many as 15 years. We have always noticed it and wondered. This time we called in and ate lunch. The place is nice enough in a typical beachside way;...More
