Sharky's was highly recommended, but wasn't that great to us. The food wasn't as seasoned as what I'm used to from other Tex-Mex places inn the South, and there were upcharges for sour cream and guac. There were also upcharges for fruit flavors that couldn't actually be tasted in the margaritas.

I came here somewhat reluctantly for dinner because I was visiting in the off season and didn't eealise that just about every restaurant stops serving aorund 8pm! The food came out in about 5 minutes (bit suspicious!) and wasn't great - I felt pretty unwell after.

Good food overall. Big portions- so filling. They have a lot of varied options, as well. Service was also good - friendly and prompt.

I stop in here every time I'm on the island. Usually I just have drinks, but this time I tried the food. Large portion sizes. I was very hungry after running a 20 mile road race, but still had a hard time finishing everything. Definitely try the habanero pineapple wings!

Because another local eatery was closed inexplicably, we ended up at Sharky's Cantina, and we were glad that we did. Great Mexican food, large portions and great service. Too bad it was a working lunch, since at least one of those beers on offer would have gone great with my enchiladas.

On Martha's Vineyard there are a bunch of seafood restaurants and American food places. Therefore sharky's is great. I have taken multiple trips every summer. The nachos are amazing. Very fun and great energy. Ask your waiter for a game console they are so fun. And if you go to the one in Edgartown there is a dq across the... More

Stumbled on this restaurant and decided to try it. I've been back 3x already! I had the fish taco. Excellent,...my friend had the chicken fajita. The fajita came out sizzling! Would definitely recommend.

Not impressed with freshness or quality of food. The meals were reasonably priced but there is nothing special about the food at all. Want a crappy sour mix maragrita? This is your place.

I like the places that are open all year round. We used to support Sharky's in that sense. The price is to attract the locals with the simple meal price tags. But, in the middle of the winter season, their rice that came with my meal was dried and rock-hard, one wrong first bite of the hard rice chipped my... More

Hi- I'm having trouble understanding this review...our rice is obviously made in house many times a day and every staff member knows that of course and walks by the rice makers often...there could be no confusion. We sell hundred of thousand of portions a year with no issue...rice is the #1 item sold and if we had an issue like... More
