Literally the most American place I've ever been outside of America... which I mean is great if you like that but there are plenty of better places to drink in Tamarindo.

Kind of a middle of the road place. Good cold beer and good place to watch sports although in the evenings it's like being in a small car with the stereo base turned up. Guess we're showing our age. Enjoyable in middle of day with open air and cold beer!

Pub food with a good sports vibe ... loved the hotdogs! Crowded in the evenings. Lots of televisions with various sports from around the world ... even ice hockey for the Canadians ...

We enjoyed our lunch here, the food was ok, but lots of locals hanging around, as we were in a group of 6 no problems, but I would be very careful if a smaller group. We did have a fun experience when Captian Jack Sparrow, stopped by for a visit. Lots of laughs and pictures.

Tamarindo is currently playing host to Jack Sparrow, who stops by Sharky's for his rum fix. We're lucky that locals here are quite a bit friendlier than your regular gang of pirates. Glad you had a fun encounter and hope to see you again soon! More

Good basic pub food, no surprises, cheap if you go on wings night. Lots of big screens for the sports fan

Most places that served food were closed mid afternoon. We stopped in here because the food on the tables looked good. It is ! We had some nachos that were very good. Had it not been for the annoying owner and friends (drunk and smoking alot), I would have given them a 4. Serving staff was also good and I... More

Dear CPJules: Oh No! We canvassed all four owners of Sharky’s (each of them happily married parents with kids) and none of them can remember a week day when they sat around drinking with their friends at their business. A little bit sad in some ways to be so lucky as to own a super cool sports bar and not... More

Oh Sharkys.... you treated me to some wild and fun nights! Sharkys is one of the most lively spots for night time fun in Tamarindo, with different themes like Ladies Night, Karaoke and Beer Pong tournaments. The music is fun and you'll have a blast dancing in the middle of the busy bar with all the new friends you make... More

Good place to go watch a game if you are from the US period NFL MLB hockey NBA. Service is slow. Wing sauces were Bland but the food was good overall.

Depends what you are going for! My friends and I went to watch an NBA game and get dinner and it was great. Awesome sports bar vibe. We went another night for a beer pong tournament and the place was beyond crowded, very loud (had to yell to talk), and some odd characters in the place. Otherwise the service and... More

We stopped in here a couple of times during our stay in Tamarindo. Our hotel didn't have televisions, and we really were feeling sports deprived. Cheap beers ($3 for a pint of Imperial) and list of big screens. If we lived here, this would be our regular hangout!
