To Christina V sorry you had a bad experience, maybe you were at the wrong bar. I've been going to Sharkey's for about 8 years now and have never run into the situation you did. The only reason i'm writing this is because you accuse the bar of being racist. That is absurd. On any given night you can have blacks, white indians and hispanics in there all getting along. Does Sharkey's get crowded sometimes? Yes Can it be too load sometimes? Yes. Does the wait staff ignore you sometimes and serve regulars first? Yes. (I'm not a regular). But Sharkeys' is NOT A RACIST BAR. I've heard everything from Blondie to U2 to Kenny Chesney. Maybe you should look in the mirror before you call anyone racist. You use alot of slurs for someone whose not.

So my fiance and I decided to go to Sharkey's for a second time as it seemed like an ok neighborhood bar. After an hour of being there we decided to put some money in the jukebox and play some 'rock' music. My fiances first pick was 'Psycho Killer' from the Talking Heads and no more than 30 seconds into the song one of the 'regulars' pumps some $$ into the jukebox. Let's give a little more backround. So... The jukebox.. If you pay extra $$$ you can have your songs played immediately bumping anything else that was already queued to pay. Also, a little more background, my fiance has tattoos and has a bit of a 'rocker' look. Beforehand. no one bothered to play ANY music before her.

So after her first song finishes for the next 30 minutes we were subjected to the worst 'new country' music on the planet. For the record there's nothing wrong with country as long as it's the good stuff (Hank Sr., johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, etc..) It was all too obvious someone didnt like 'our kind'.

My fiance decided to play some more music after which the same redneck came right behind her to play more of 'their' crappy music. Don't get me wrong, everyone is entitled to listen to whatever they like but everyone should get their turn/dollars worth.

On our way out, my fiance (without me knowing) decided to confront the redneck. She asked if he owned the placed to which he replied 'I might as well'. He said the 'guy next to him had made song requests'., to which she replied 'We work hard to go out one night a week for a few beers, some wings, and a few spins on the jukebox, I just wanted to hear a few songs'. His reply was 'I've never seen you here before!'. My fiances reply was 'Are you saying that you dont like my kind here? You dont like rocker chicks?' His reply was 'This is a country bar, I've never seen you here before.. Here.. Take your money back'.. She refused and said that it was disrespectful

She gets to the car and tells me the story.. So i call the bar and ask for the owner and 'Maureen' gets on the phone. She remebered us as a 'nice couple' and says they've had problems with those two before and that they would get kicked out. She assures us that Sharkey's is a 'melting pot' and to come back for some drinks on the house another time.

Knowing that she was 'full of it' we decided to go back and see if she made good on her word. Of course the rednecks were still there. So i called back and called her out on her BS and was told there are 2 sides to every story and that they offered the $$ for the jukebox incident, completely disregarding the profiling/racist crap. You'd think we were blacks in the south.

Speaking of blacks, while we went back to see if the rednecks were kicked out we made friends with 2 black brothers who were apparently turned away from the $.40 happy hour wings and charged full price (during happy hour)

Now this might seem silly and trivial but it says a lot about the character of this establishment. I'd rather wipe my butt with my hard earned cash than pump it in to a racist/redneck business.

On a side note.. If this is a 'country' bar, why have rock music in the jukebox?

I am a wing snob so I had little faith when a neighbor told me about Sharkeys.
She brought some over one night and I've been HOOKED EVER SINCE !!
I love the hot wings but the garlic wings are also killin.

Found Sharkey,s on Google. Thought we had wings at home--but found out that Sharky's has wings. Don't let the exterior deture you. You have got to try the garlic wings!!!!! Thanks to the guy at the end of the bar for the beer-even though he wouldnt give up his seat !! Morene (server 4 (sorry if I butchered your name) made us feel welcome as did the patrons. We will be back next time we're in the area. Thanks to all

Sharkey's is a great place to come and hang out. Obviously you can tell that they have great wings, try the hot garlic wings they are great. Go and see for yourself!

Sharkeys has the best wings, hands down. My husband also loves the clams on half shell.
The inside is small and is usually pretty crowded. The best part of sharkeys is that you can get it all to go!

More of a bar than a restaurant, Sharkey's does serve up some great pub food along with the sports bar atmosphere. Their wings are the best. Popular spot for the local softball clubs after a game.
