We started early - had my 8 and 13 year old boys with us so during the day very kid friendly with fun photo booth, and give away sunglasses, hats, stickers. Later that night she returned with other 21+ year olds and had a different kind of fun. Food not bad either - great "get your own chips and salsa... More

If you enjoy second rate alcohol served in plastic cups surrounded by legions of twenty somethings and if you can't live without pedestrian 'Mexican' food then this is the place for you. Sharkee's moved to its present location which is slightly larger than the previous spot [now occupied by 'Fish Bar'] but the larger space only makes it roomier for... More

We had good food, drink and the atmosphere was a lot of fun for this beach town location. Looking forward to our next afternoon here.

Surprisingly Sharkee's was open on Thanksgiving morning. The place was packed with football fans watching the game. One server for the entire outdoor area- I felt so bad. The food was mediocre, the black beans looked like it came out of a can, the fajitas smothered in "sauce" the mojitos were disappointing, I think it was pretty universal as I... More

This place has two crowds. The happy hour and lunch crowd. And the night life crown. Both are good but I enjoyed the happy hour best.

We had a group of 20 last week. We made a reservation for a table but were unable to get there until almost 7 pm. Happy hour was 5-7. Since we made a reservation the manager extended happy hour prices for us until 9 pm. That was awesome. The Friday night crowd was good and the place was not over... More

Went with a colleague to Sharkees in Manhattan Beach. Place is about 2 or 3 short blocks from the ocean. Nice interior. I got the blackened Mahi fish tacos --- excellent. Food was reasonably priced. Too bad my colleague didn't believe in drinking at lunch or I would have loved to try one of the Margaritas. Requesting food was somewhat... More
