Absolutely worst service I've ever had in my life. They aren't interested in US money nor tourist for that matter.

I was somewhat disappointed in all of the jerk at all of the restaurants in Jamaica that we ate at...honestly my husband's jerk tastes better than Sharkies and Ultimate and the locals claim those are 2 of their very best!

The atmosphere is relaxed and casual. They provided a huge television and have various themes each day. We visited on a Tuesday and they had "Customer Request" for music videos. It was quite diverse music in keeping with the crowd there. The food was delicious and worth the wait. Great Value with friendly and helpful Staff!

We stopped at Sharkies after a excursion one day. The wait for the food was about 40 minutes but the food was fresh and good. The atmosphere of the restaurant was cool, right on the beach.

This is my third time eating here and I must say I was truly compelled to write a review this time. The food was succulent to the last grain of rice. The brown stew fish,curry shrimp and curry lobster were finger licking Good!. Mouth watering..... Seasoned to perfection. I will definitely be going there again and again and again. .... More

Ok nothing fancy and takes awhile to get your food, BUT if you want authentic fresh local seafood cooked before you with fully stocked bar while you wait on the beach this is your place. You can pick the exact fish you want (the day's catch) my friend had parrot fish, I had fresh lobster, others had shrimp pasta. All... More
