We have a family house in Depot Bay, and visit the coast a couple of times a year. This is hands down my favorite restaurant in the area and I visit every time I come. They have the best food in town, and combined with the best service it just can't be beat. I usually get the dungeness crab plate... More

The portions again were huge. They have two sizes junior and large and both of opted for the larger portions only to... More

Excellent seafood served in HUGE portions, bring a friend or take some home with you. It is a small setting with minimal room and a friendly wait staff.

The outside is deceiving as this place is a diamond in the rough. The service was spectacular, the chef was friendly and entertaining and the food was amazing! Make sure to sit at the bar and you can't watch the magic happen!

The Chioppino is good and the pan roasts ( not a roast ) are excellent. It is a bit pricey but the service and the food is very good. Very small restaurant and very limited seating.

Our server (who seemed to be co-owner, also) brought out two bowls filled to-the-brim with their rich, lovely seafood soup. She described them as "voluptuous" and spilled not-a-drop in bringing them from the kitchen to our table. See the accompanying photo. It was delicious, absolutely first-rate. If you visit Newport and you enjoy a good cioppino, put this on your... More

We have eaten here many times over the last number of years and never been disappointed. Great food, great staff. Best gumbo I have ever had outside of New Orleans.

Sharks really hit the spot on a cool Wednesday night.The Cioppino was satisfying and full of fresh fish and shellfish, and the Steamed Clams were delicious, with lots of bread provided to sop up the broth. Our server was knowledgeable, attentive and extremely enthusiastic. Our narrow table was a tight fit to the wall, making the mechanics of eating a... More

Every fall we come to Newport and never miss an opportunity to eat at Sharks. If we have friends visiting, we take them there too. The Cioppino is to die for! Large with the pasta, but delicious. We even take the Cioppino mix home with us to enjoy later in the year. Great staff. Small but worth it. If you... More

We remembered Sharks fondly from our visit to Newport last Sept so we went back. The ciopinno is wonderfully delicious and the sour dough bread is very sour, just the way we like it. I wasn't terribly hungry so just got the regular sized bowl which is still a bit more than I had room for. Go, you won't be... More
