Have loved this place for years and the quality is still great. We come here once or twice a year just for the food. A small place that seats maybe 15 - 20 people. Only open for dinner and one waitress. Sometimes you may need...More

We had been to Sharks on another visit and were so glad to see them still going strong! We both ordered the fresh crab entree and it is just unmatched in its freshness and tender presentation! It was almost (almost) more Dungeness than I could...More

We so appreciate your nice review. Without yours and others continued support who knows where we'd be. Thanks again from the Shark's crew.

Had a wonderful dinner here tonight!! Had the fresh snapper (absolutely amazing). Daughter had the Dungeness crab, also very good. Would agree with some of the other reviews that the salad should be served in a separate plate, that being said, it was very good...More

Small place. Fresh seafood steamed properly so no need for sauces. Fresh veggies and fruit. Cioppino is the best I’ve ever eaten. The owners are incredibly nice and helpful. Huge portions.

The food was fairly good. How it was assembled on the plate was mumbo jumbo. The salad needed it's own plate. You had to find the vegetables under the salad and fish. It seemed a little overpriced. The waitress was very friendly.

My wife started coming here 22 years ago for dinner and we have never been disappointed. The Cioppino, the clams, the oysters... Are worth the travel from anywhere you're at. It's an absolute must kneel when in the Newport area. We plan on coming here...More

We looked forward to our arrive-home-lunch, since we had CIOPPINO leftovers. Carefully packed by our kind server and refrigerated by us, leftovers elicited the same level of enthusiasm (oh my gosh this is so good!) as we felt in the restaurant two days before. Also,...More

It is so nice to see our devoted customers year after year. Thank you for keeping us viable. Without our valuable past & new customers it would be a real challenge these days. Hope to see you next time!

Sharks is a tiny little resteraunt with big heart. Its owner ran, a husband and wife team. The seafood is always very fresh. I love the seafood gumbo. "Yumbo Gumbo" I tend to order that every time. Get there right at opening if you want...More
