                      4 times there and I have to keep saying "If it wasn't for their great location, they wouldn't be in business". Their servers are SLOW and have no personality whatsoever. They act like you're inconveniencing them by being there. It's really amazing how they still have jobs, but apparently the owner/operator doesn't care. He/she knows they'll do the business anyway because of the location. The Google reviews about the poor service are endless.

                      I have gone to this place many many many times and its always amazing. I have never had a bad experiance at sharky's. The prices are good and the service is even better. I have read some negative coments about it and had to post. I think this is one of the most enjoyable places to go for an evening out in this part of Florida. I highly recomend it to anyone!

                      Anytime we are in Venice this is a place we will not miss! The atmosphere sitting out on the deck watching the sunset is awesome! The food is always good and at night time the place gets hopping with live music. You can walk out on the pier after dinner and end your wonderful evening.

                      Gulf side dining outside, although inside dining is also available. They have nightly entertainment which is enjoyable. Serves steak, chicken and salads in addition to their delicious seafood!

                      Florida is great for outdoor eating next to the water and this place is the best. Sitting outside on a balmy evenig having great seafood, a nice drink and watching the sun go down over the Gulf of Mexico is the best.

                      the food is awful, the drinks are overpriced and watered down but most importantly the people that work there could not be any ruder to people - visiting from other places - trying desperately to give them business. DO NOT patronize them! get beach chairs and a sandwich and you will have a much better time watching the sunset. they are the WORST!!!!!!!

                      Pros: monopoly on beach front location - that is IT!!!!

                      Where DID they go wrong. How about slow service, where's the server, where's the check? Probably the grand finale after you say you want separate checks in the beginning - NO, corporate policy is one check, you'll have to split it up yourselves. What? It's 2008 - registers can do it all for you. Sharkey's is lucky in one way - they attract people who want to eat on the water, and they are the only game in the area. Forget it, go somewhere else.

                      Pros: They have greatly increased their parking capability

                      Cons: Guys, you need to be able to do separate checks

                      This is our favorite restaurant of all. We love the location....on the beach with a bar on the deck overlooking the ocean...who could beat that!!! The kids love the food and the adults love the atmosphere. The bands are always a bonus!

                      Visiting from Iowa, enjoyed the wheelchair accessible beach front dining. The food and drinks were great and the service nice. We arrived with no reservation in early afternoon and wheelchair to accomodate. Got right in and were able to be seated out on the deck to enjoy the waterfront. Our drinks, salad, and sandwich were nicely presented and very tasty. The keylime pie was a delicious conclusion to our meal. I searched for waterfront dining for wheelchair accessibility and I'm so glad I found Sharky's on the pier. I would return in a heartbeat and look forward to it.

                      Best place to sit on the upper deck and watch the sunset and drink. The food in the restaurant was not very good. We eat lunch there and was very disapointed. The nightlife is a great over 50's pick up spot. As the night progresses couples walk out on the pier and go to the dark corners to make out.

                      Always good food and a fantastic atmosphere. The deck is wonderful for a light meal and a great free sunset. Friendly staff, usually crowded, but well worth the wait. Live entertainment most nights and deck music all day.
