Sharky's is a must while in Venice. There is nothing better after a long day at the beach than relaxing at Sharky's eating outside and watching the sunset. There can be a long wait, but in the summer it's not too bad. The service is...More

We came for a late lunch about 3pm and enjoyed sitting outside under roof with lots of fans and still were able to view the beach and waves. Great service and great food.

Loved this place for lunch, straight off the beach at Venice by the pier. Great laid back atmosphere, music and Tiki bar decor. The lunch Menu extensive had a blackened Grouper sandwich, very fresh delicious.

Great view of the Gulf of Mexico. Parking and seating difficult. Drinks a little pricey. Staff to busy to be friendly. Food so so.

So Sharky’s has been here as far back as I can remember. You came for the view—not the food. Today, back in Venice for vacation and no longer a resident, I decided to revisit the landmark. Food was very good! I had the coconut shrimp,...More

Many times we’ve been over the years with family and friends. We enjoy eating outside, more casual dining, but inside is great too. Watching the sunset, listening to live music, good food, great atmosphere. Lots of fun. Great for lunch and dinner. The wait is...More

There is a bait shop half way out the pier. I did not fish but I would recommend to check with them - it seems they would fix you up.
