We came with two other couples for lunch. The wait was under 30 minutes and it was worth it. The weather was beautiful so we were able to enjoy lovely views of the beach as well as the pier. The food was very good as was the service. The only problem was that my husband is handicapped and while the... More

We enjoyed the sunset, but still had quite a wait for seating after that. Food was really good, but sitting inside was crowded and noisy. I would choose this restaurant when I could sit outside...I think that would make it much better. Our waitress was nice, but it was so busy she didn't have much time for refills or any... More

Sharkeys is a casual dining restaurant, with beautiful sunsets, good service and good food. They also have music on certain nights. One thing to remember you can't book and the line ups can be long

Went to Sharleys on Feb, 2017, it was warm, windy and the "red tide" was causing many coughing spells. Sounds bleak but did not deter our wonderful experience there. They went overboard to seat us so we were extremely comfortable (out of the wind), the waiter was phenomenal and the food great. I had the pulled pork which I loved,... More

Great place to see the sunset out on the pier .You can also fish there-just take your rod or rent one there. The restaurant food was good . The seafood was a little overdone.The service is excellent and you get your food quickly. Their wait is long so plan on checking in with the hostesses way before you're ready to... More

You go for the water view, not the food . A walk on the pier a nice frozen drink and some lunch or dinner, this way you can say that you visited Venice, Fl

My family went here recently mostly for the view. The sunset by the pier is spectacular and highly recommend going to see this. That said, eating at Sharky's isn't necessary to enjoy the view. Being somewhat of a touristy place, there was a 75 minute wait for a table (sunset helped pass the time so no real complaint there). The... More

Food and service at Sharky's is so so. The fun begins when you visit the outside tiki bar. Usually the drinks are good but a tad expensive. with the music, people watching and brilliant SW Florida sunsets a visit to the Tiki hut is a must.

Thank Mortgageman9000
